Massage Therapy and Chiropractic: A Perfect Combination

Many people seek chiropractic care and massage therapy to relieve or prevent pain. These two therapies, especially in combination, are a powerful approach to relieve pain and increase mobility. Over time they offer a unique way to support well-being. Massage therapists use a variety of different techniques to address problems. Kneading and stretching gently lengthens contracted muscles. Massage also increases circulation which helps muscles begin to soften and lengthen.  Good circulation reduces painful swelling and inflammation, it also promotes healing by removing waste products and bringing nutrients to your tissues. Both massage therapy and chiropractic care offer preventative care to support ongoing good health as well as a cost effective/non invasive option to drugs and surgery.

A timely visit to your chiropractor can reestablish normal alignment and mobility before secondary soft tissue problems develop. Regular massage can release chronically contracted muscles, this can improve balance among muscle groups and promote healthful circulation. The body becomes more resilient when facing daily stresses, and less prone to pain and injury. Because both chiropractic care and massage therapy help relieve pain and improve mobility, you may sleep better and feel more energetic. Also, stretching and exercising may become easier. This can help maintain and improve flexibility and strength.
