Many people are aware that chiropractic treatment generally consists of manipulation of the spine to relieve subluxations. However, in addition to spinal manipulation, other types of treatment may also be used by your chiropractor that takes care of the whole body. These other forms of chiropractic care include massage therapy, ultrasound, physical therapy, and/or electric stimulation. One purpose of these different forms of treatment is to relax the patient so that the adjustment is more effective.

What are the benefits of getting a massage?

  • Reduces stress
  • Relaxes muscles
  • Improves flexibility
  • Alleviates headaches
  • Helps with digestive disorders
  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Diminishes the pain of Fibromyalgia and/or arthritis
  • Helps the healing process for soft tissue strains or injuries
  • Helps manage chronic pain

Ask your chiropractor or the massage therapist on staff to explain the type of massage that would be most beneficial for your care, such as:

  • Swedish massage
  • Deep Tissue
  • Trigger Points
  • Geriatric Massage
  • Sports Massage
  • Prenatal Massage

The massage therapist will ask you about your symptoms of pain or stress, medical history and whnt you would like the massage to do for you. They will also explain the kind of techniques they will use, as well as evaluate (by touch) the painful or tense areas and determine how much pressure to apply to those areas.

Whether you are looking for a stress-reliever or suffering from a specific health condition, massage therapy is a powerful tool to help you take charge of your health wholeness.
