Chiropractic Massage Therapy
Eastern Chinese Medicine is highly regarded for its focus on the health and well-being of the whole body. While using massage therapy as a technique for the purpose of pain relief and relaxation is a practice that began more than 5,000 years ago, we now know that its benefits extend beyond feelings of comfort, tranquility, and pain reduction.
Once seen as a form of alternative medicine, massage therapy has become standard treatment in a vast number of settings including gyms, day spas, chiropractic offices, medical clinics, and hospitals. Massages are popping up in airports around the globe and even being offered as employment perks by many companies.
Here are some of the ways you and your family can benefit from chiropractic massage therapy:
It helps to alleviate pain
Countless patients have found massage therapy to be an instrumental part of pain relief from various conditions such as neck, back, shoulder, and hip pain resulting from sprains, strains, and sports or workplace injuries.
We may not often consider how extended intervals of sitting at a desk all day or sleeping on the wrong mattress at night can contribute to chronic back, neck, shoulder, and hip pain. Chiropractic massage therapy has also been proven very effective in decreasing the occurrence of tension headaches, migraines, and pain attributed to arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic myofascial pain syndrome (CMPS), and more.
It promotes strong, healthy muscles and flexible joints
Chiropractic massage therapy is an integral part of the rehabilitation process following any type of injury. Whiplash, muscle spasms, broken bones, and burns are all conditions that benefit from the promotion of blood circulation as well as an increase in the delivery of oxygen and nutrients that result from the manual adjustment of soft body tissue. Massage therapy increases the patient’s range of motion and joint flexibility. It results in stronger muscles and more fluid movements that help to prevent stress, strain, and injury.
It increases blood flow
Not only does increased blood flow relieve muscle soreness and promote healing after an injury, but it improves immune function as a result of increased lymphatic system flow. Improved circulation can also contribute to a reduction in blood pressure by improving cardiovascular health. It helps to alleviate some of the common symptoms of arthritis, such as, pain, stiffness, limited mobility, and lack of grip strength.
It improves overall health
Chiropractic massage therapy has been shown to contribute to the decrease of stress, anxiety, and depression as well as insomnia. It improves digestive disorders, mood, posture, balance, and even the condition of our skin.
