Chiropractic treatments and massage therapy are often considered one and the same. Both are alternative health care treatments, and the medical community typically do not accept these types of treatments. Professionals usually only suggest these treatments if other treatments are not effective. However, growing research has proven that chiropractor massage therapy is becoming an important treatment even among mainstream medical professionals.
Why Choose Massage Therapy?
If you have been in an accident, suffered with an injury or is currently dealing with stress, there is an excellent chance you could benefit from chiropractor massage therapy. A certified massage therapist can help facilitate the healing of your body when massage therapy is used in conjunction with other types of chiropractic treatments. There are several types of massage therapy the therapist can perform including:
- Hot Stone Massage
- Deep Tissue Massage
- Therapeutic Massage
Studies have shown chiropractic care to be extremely effective for common issues such as back pain. Similarly, patients have chosen chiropractic massage therapy, specifically deep tissue massage, as being the best way to treat fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. There are no conclusive reasons why this type of treatment is so effective, but many researchers believe massage therapy is so effective because of the hands on application.
There are few other types of healthcare treatments except physical therapy that places so much emphasis on the human touch and its ability to help the body heal on its own. The moderate pressure that is applied by the therapist not only stimulates the body, but it also reduces pain and improves functionality.
Chiropractic Massage Benefits
As previously stated, massage therapy is a very gentle form of treatment. It helps to reduce tension and encourage pain management. When combined with regular chiropractic care, massage therapy can help eliminate or alleviate symptoms and prevent new symptoms from appearing.
You will also experience a renewed energy after receiving massage therapy. Your body will begin to:
- Naturally lubricate joints
- Increase circulation and remove waste and fluids
- Alleviate pain
- Relax muscles
Chiropractor massage therapy is a great way to improve a person’s overall health. It is effective for both the body and the mind.
