What is Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy is a manual manipulation of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and other soft tissues of the body. It is performed by a trained and certified medical professional using pressure and movement, and it is commonly being offered alongside standard treatments for many medical situations.
Conditions that Benefit from Massage Therapy
Massage therapy through a chiropractor is often recommended to help cancer patients cope with the pain and stress of cancer. It can also be used to provide relief from the stress of heart disease, stomach problems, and fibromyalgia. Other conditions that may benefit from massage therapy include:
- Acute pain
- Chronic back pain
- Sleep issues
Benefits of Massage Therapy
A growing number of researchers show that massage therapy provides many benefits, which can, directly and indirectly, help people deal with many conditions. Some physicians recommend massage therapy for those recovering from surgery, and because it helps you relax, it can also be used to lower blood pressure and ease symptoms from depression and anxiety. It can help improve balance in older individuals and reduce the pain from many types of arthritis. Massage therapy can help relieve muscle spasms, break up scar tissue and can accelerate the removal of toxins from the body. Other benefits include decreased symptoms from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, decreased headaches and improved quality of life for those in hospice care.
Massage Therapy for Prevention
Massage therapy can also be used as part of a preventative care program in combination with chiropractic care. It can help strengthen the immune system to make you less susceptible to colds and other common illnesses, and it can help prevent injuries in sports by keeping the muscles loose.
Combining Chiropractic Treatment and Massage Therapy
Your muscles function through messages received from your nervous system through the spinal cord. When you reduce inflammation through massage therapy, you optimize their function and communication. Ongoing treatment from both a massage therapist and a chiropractor can reduce pain and keep it from coming back. It can also help increase flexibility, increase blood flow and improve your overall range of motion.
