How Chiropractic and Massage Therapy
Ease Sore Muscles
What is best for you, chiropractic or massage therapy? How about both? Combining two different approaches to treat sore muscles and other medical ailments can speed up your recovery time.
Chiropractic and massage therapy help to reduce aches and improve mobility. Together, chiropractic and massage facilitate a more complete and effective system of health care. Whether you need to treat back pain or align your spine for efficient running, learn how these two therapies work together to help you maintain optimum health and quality of life.
Combining Chiropractic and Massage
Misalignment of the musculoskeletal system can create dysfunction, pain or injury. Targeting the soft and hard tissue allows for a faster and more complete recovery.
Massages help chiropractic treatment because they relieve tension and warm up the soft tissue. It relaxes you, makes you less anxious and ready for the adjustments. Plus, adjustments last longer when the muscle tension is released because tight muscles can pull joints out of alignment.
Chiropractic, in turn, supports massage. If pain involves misalignment, adjustments may give immediate relief. Soft tissue heals quicker once the joints are realigned. The joint movement relaxes the deep layers of soft tissue that can be difficult to palpate. The use of manual diagnostic techniques can elevate other causes for your pain, which allows for proper treatment.
