Massage therapy actually works in conjunction with and enhances chiropractic care. Your chiropractic doctor may recommend massage therapy as part of your care. Many chiropractic clinics now employ licensed and certified massage therapists that serve to complement the work of the chiropractors. Massage is increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations.

Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension, including:

  • Stress relief
  • Relaxation of Muscles
  • Improved Flexibility
  • Alleviate Headaches
  • Digestive disorders
  • Strengthening of Immune System
  • Fibromyalgia and/or arthritis
  • Soft tissue strains or injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Management of chronic pain

Before a massage session, your massage therapist should ask you about your symptoms, your medical history and what you're hoping to get out of massage. Your therapist should explain the kind of massage and techniques he or she will use, and should perform an evaluation to locate painful or tense areas and to determine how much pressure to apply.

Massage therapy can be a powerful tool to help you take charge of your health and well-being, whether you have a specific health condition or are just looking for a stress reliever.
