Massage Therapy is a natural treatment providing therapeutic care to soft tissue, helping you deal with pain and stress. Massage therapy manipulates soft tissues, primarily focusing on tendons and muscles to reduce inflammation, pain, and other physical symptoms. This therapy is often combined with chiropractic care for optimum results. Massage therapy deals with your soft tissues problems, and chiropractic care treats your nervous and musculoskeletal systems.
Combining chiropractic care and massage therapy provides longer-lasting and more beneficial results than using either treatment on its own. Our body’s skeletal system and muscles are meant to work together synergistically. So, treating both together improves the way our body functions.
A chiropractor adjusts the neck, spine, and other musculoskeletal systems while a massage therapist treats soft tissues. Having your spine aligned correctly allows your body to heal itself better. Chiropractic adjustments allow your joints to move better and reduce inflammation while increasing mobility. Chiropractic care will improve the function of your nervous system, strengthen your immune system, and help reduce pain.
Chiropractic adjustments are more effective when your muscles aren’t tense. In fact, muscular tension can cause subluxations (misalignments) to the spine that require chiropractic adjustments to correct. This is part of why many chiropractors will offer massage therapy services at their practice and often recommend getting a massage before a chiropractic adjustment. When your joints are properly aligned after a chiropractic adjustment, the improved nerve flow helps the soft tissues manipulated during your massage heal quicker. Combining chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy also helps sustain optimal spinal alignment longer.
