Chiropractic Care And Massage Therapy Work Well Together

Gresham patients sometimes find themselves wondering which they need – massage therapy or chiropractic care. Have you considered, though, that perhaps you could benefit from both? Getting both regular massages and routine chiropractic adjustments can enhance your overall wellness.

How Chiropractic Care And Massage Therapy Go Hand-In-Hand

A chiropractic adjustment, reduces joint restrictions or misalignments in the spine and other joints in the body, in an effort to reduce inflammation and pain while improving the function of both the affected joint and nervous system. The treatment itself is a highly controlled procedure that uses minimal force and gentle pressure. Patients typically feel relief immediately after an adjustment.

Meanwhile, massage works the tendons and the muscles of the body. A skilled masseuse uses techniques to manipulate the muscles and tendons that are affected by inflammation or pain. Different types of massage therapy include:

Trigger Point – A massage therapy that relieves areas that are tight and cause pain.

Deep Tissue – This type uses slow movements that target the muscles with concentrated pressure.

Swedish – This is a more traditional kind of massage that increases blood flow and circulation while relaxing the patient.

Try Both Together

Your muscles function through coordinated movements and timing because of messages they receive from your nervous system, via your spinal cord. By reducing inflammation and restriction in both your muscles and your nervous system, you are allowing optimal function and communication throughout the body. That’s why regular massage therapy and routine chiropractic care make the perfect combo for wellness.

After a massage, your muscles are loosened up, which can make chiropractic treatment more effective and your pain relief lasts longer. In addition, the soft tissues treated with massage heal quicker once the joints are realigned. Ongoing, regular treatment with both massage and chiropractic will help keep the pain from coming back.

If improved nervous system function, reduced inflammation, and relief from pain aren’t enough, routine chiropractic care and massage therapy, can also:

  • Improve immune system function
  • Increase blood flow
  • Increase flexibility
  • Improve overall range of motion
