Chiropractic treatment and massage therapy work very well together. Chiropractors can work wonders on rebalancing the alignment of the spine as well as relaxing muscles and restoring normal nerve function. Sometimes the body can be so stiff that it tries to resist the Chiropractic adjustments.
Having a professional massage will help to relax any muscle tightness and spasm and help the chiropractor’s correction. Muscles move joints, while ligaments and fascia support them. If an area of spinal stiffness with a lot of tension in the surrounding muscles is adjusted without addressing the soft tissue problem, the tight muscles and shortened fascia can then pull on the spinal joints making them stiffen up again and the pain may return. Massage is useful for treating people that are under constant stress physically, as well as mentally.
You must be aware of the signs your body gives you for spinal stress, so that you can see your chiropractor on time to get treatment. Spinal stress as well as causing pain and stiffness can bring on Sciatica, arm pain, a tingling sensation in the legs, shoulder, and arms and sometimes numbness in the arms or legs. This is why it is important to address spinal problems immediately.
Chiropractic and massage therapy work effectively to solve these problems in many cases. They can not only correct the problem but also restore you natural energy. A person can be healthy in every other way, but have physical pain caused by tightness and stress. Through massage and chiropractic techniques they can be helped.
The massage when used with chiropractic treatments is beneficial for physical injuries such as those that happen in car accidents, injuries that occur from sports, gardening or a variety of other activities. The immune system is stimulated by massage and chiropractic treatments along with blood circulation. By doing massage you are further augmenting the body’s natural energy to heal.
Clients with a lot of muscle tension who combine chiropractic treatment and massage therapy often see better, faster, and longer lasting results because their pain is often due to both soft tissue tightness and spinal dysfunction. Chiropractic care and massage therapy addresses both of these important components of pain. Both offer natural hands-on, drug-free techniques. They can be used as preventative as well as restorative therapies. When used in combination, they help you maintain your optimum health and enjoy life to the fullest!
