Massage therapy and chiropractic care work together to increase the overall health and wellness of the patient while decreasing the need for surgery and other types of conventional treatment.
Massage therapy provides an array of significant positive effects, apart from relaxation and rejuvenation. Massage is used for various health-related purposes, like relieving pain, rehabilitating sports injuries, reducing stress levels, addressing anxiety and depression problems, and in aiding general wellness. Massages involve pressing, rubbing, or manipulating muscles and other soft tissues with hands and fingers. Sometimes, even forearms, elbows, or feet are used.
Chiropractic, on the other hand, is a recognized alternative treatment which involves the manipulation of the body’s nervous system especially the spine, as well as the bones. It is based on the principle that a problem in the nervous system can affect all the other parts of the body, causing a variety of conditions and injuries. Chiropractic helps correct misalignment and allows the nerves to send signals to and from the brain more efficiently.
How Does Chiropractic Massage Therapy Work?
Chiropractic adjustments reduce misalignments in the joints throughout the body and the spine. Chiropractic massage therapy focuses on the spine and its interconnection between nerves, muscles, and joints in the body. These alignments reduce inflammation and pain while enhancing the overall functioning of the affected joints as well as the nervous system. Chiropractic adjustments use gentle pressure, minimal force, and are highly controlled. Some patients report feeling immediate relief following an adjustment. It works to train the body to help keep itself well and self-heal. Treatments may localize individual nerve areas that need attention or may also be given to promote healing in the body to multiple areas related to spinal health.
