Hood View Chiropractic Offers Combination Chiropractic Care and Massage Therapy
Gresham locals who experience aches and stiffness may have considered seeking out chiropractic care or massage therapy. Have you considered, though, that you may benefit from a combination of both? Hood View Chiropractic offers quality chiropractic care and massage therapy for the people of Gresham.
How Do Chiropractic Care and Massage Therapy Work?
Chiropractic adjustments use highly controlled, minimal force, and gentle pressure to reduce misalignment in joints throughout the body and spine. This helps to reduce inflammation and pain while improving the overall function of the affected joints as well as the nervous system. Massage therapy, on the other hand, involves the manipulation of the tendons and muscles to reduces inflammation and pain.
The Benefits of Using Both Chiropractic Care and Massage Therapy Together
The Hood View Chiropractic team can help Gresham locals figure out which type of care will work best to suit their needs. Some Gresham patients need a combination of chiropractic care and massage therapy.
Using massage therapy and chiropractic care to tend to your muscles, joints, spinal area, and nervous system in combination improves the overall functionality of your body. In order to function, your muscles are dependent on working from messages they receive from your nervous system via the spinal cord. By reducing inflammation and restriction in both the muscles and nervous system, your body is better able to communicate and function.
Additionally, receiving both forms of care can make the other more effective. After you receive a massage, your muscles are loosened and relaxed, making chiropractic adjustments more effective, which leads to pain relief lasting for a longer period of time. Furthermore, the soft tissues treated with massage therapy heal more quickly when the joints are realigned. Regular treatment with both massage and chiropractic can help prevent pain from returning.
The combination of chiropractic care and massage therapy can also help:
- Increase flexibility
- Improve the function of the immune system
- Increase blood flow
- Improve overall range of motion
