Used in combination, chiropractic care and massage therapy create a unique healing environment. The combined benefits of these treatments provide patients with multiple benefits, helping to relieve pain, increase healing and improve overall health and well-being.
Benefits of Massage Therapy
Massage therapy manipulates the body’s soft tissues – specifically tendons and muscles – in order to reduce pain, inflammation, and unwanted stress. Massage helps to relieve muscle tension and, like chiropractic care, increases mobility and range of motion.
At the hands of a professional massage therapist, you will relax and experience a heightened state of well-being. This increases mental and emotional resilience and lessens the impact of stress.
Combined Benefits of Chiropractic and Massage
When you combine massage therapy with routine chiropractic care, you will experience even greater and longer lasting benefits than using either treatment on its own. That’s because your body’s muscles and skeletal system are meant to work together.
A chiropractor, unlike a massage therapist who manipulates muscles and soft tissue, adjusts the spine and extremities. When the spine is properly aligned, the body is better able to heal itself. Regular chiropractic adjustments can reduce joint restriction and inflammation, increase mobility, improve the function of your nervous system, and reduce pain.
Chiropractic adjustments are more effective—and your pain relief lasts longer—when your muscles are loosened up and less restricted in mobility. That’s why many chiropractors offer massage therapy services at their offices and recommend getting a massage before or after an adjustment, depending on the patient. By realigning your joints, chiropractic adjustments also help the soft tissues manipulated during your massage heal quicker.
By integrating massage therapy with routine chiropractic care, you’ll also experience:
Improved nervous system’s functioning
Reduced inflammation in your body
Increased blood flow and circulation
Increased flexibility and range of motion
