When a person decides to try chiropractic treatment, massage therapy could also be recommended as part of your care. In addition to chiropractic doctors, chiropractic offices may also employ other licensed and certified practitioners, including massage therapists. There are some advantages to receiving massage therapy at a chiropractic office over spa facilities.
When a patient arrives for their chiropractic treatment (a spinal adjustment), they may also choose to receive other forms of treatment, including ultrasound, physical therapy, electric stimulation, or massage therapy. The main purpose of these different forms of treatment is to relax the patient before their spinal adjustment. They will actually receive a better and more effective adjustment. The massage therapist wants to make sure the patient relaxes from the time they arrive at the clinic to the time they leave.
If you’re wondering why massage therapy is important, here are some of the major benefits:
