Massage therapy is an effective treatment option for many illnesses and injuries that affect the musculoskeletal system. Our chiropractor understands the complementary nature of massage therapy when it is used in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments. The following commonly asked questions will provide you with a little extra information about massage and how it can help you regain your health.
Will Massage Therapy Relieve Pain and Discomfort?
Deep tissue massage is quite effective at relieving pain and discomfort. Injuries and illnesses can cause the joints to become stiff and lack flexibility. Regular massage around the injured area will improve flexibility by breaking up inflammation and relieving pain. Massaging the injured area will flood the injury with nutrients and oxygen, carrying away toxins that can lead to inflammation.
Do Chiropractic Care and Massage Therapy Go Together?
Chiropractic care and massage therapy go hand in hand by supporting the others' benefits. Just as the musculoskeletal system brings together bones and soft tissues, chiropractic adjusts both bones and soft tissues while massage therapy strengthens them. When used together the benefits of both forms of treatment will last much longer.
What Conditions Will Massage Therapy Help?
Massage therapy is beneficial for sports injuries, tendonitis, bursitis, pulled muscles, fibromyalgia, and many other chronic illnesses that limit mobility and cause pain and inflammation in the joints and soft tissues. Deep tissue massage can be used along with chiropractic care to treat injuries from auto accidents and work-related conditions. Massage therapy is also beneficial for individuals who deal with stress and anxiety.
Can I Get a Massage if I'm Pregnant?
Massage therapy is quite beneficial for expecting mothers. Regular massage helps prepare expecting mother’s bodies for childbirth, even when physical exercise is out of the question. It relaxes the body and mind, relieving stress and tension. It is a great way to prepare for one of the best days of your life.
