Therapeutic massage is a great addition to chiropractic care. While many people equate massage with relaxation, massage therapy can also facilitate rehabilitation and promote the body’s natural healing process after injury.
Massage therapy can help with certain medical conditions, alleviate pain from injury, and even help reduce everyday stress.
Some of the many benefits of therapeutic massage include:
More effective elimination of cellular and tissue waste
Relief from compressed nerves (as seen in conditions such as sciatica and carpal tunnel)
Pain relief (whether caused by injury or illness)
The increase in blood flow and circulation has an extremely positive effect on the body. When cells can more effectively absorb oxygen, chronic inflammation symptoms such as those associated with arthritis and fibromyalgia can greatly improve.
Massage therapy can also greatly reduce both physical and mental stress. The relaxation response to massage therapy is great for patients who are seeing the symptoms of stress interrupt daily life.
If you are suffering from any of the following issues or conditions, we may recommend therapeutic massage:
