In the past, you’ve enjoyed the one or two massages you’ve had. You felt relaxed, but you’re not sure it had any real impact on your overall wellness. But then, during a chiropractic adjustment, your chiropractor suggests integrating massage therapy into your treatment. Aren’t massages just something you do to treat yourself? Absolutely not! Massage therapy in Richardson can add a lot of value to the therapies you’re receiving from your chiropractor. What benefits does combining these treatments provide? Read on to find out!
Deal with the Root Cause
Sometimes, patients who suffer with pain or injury turn to massage therapy, thinking that this alone can resolve the problem. Tight muscles or knots can develop and make daily functions unbearable, and massage therapy is designed to ease the strain. Massage patients are often surprised to find out that the cause of the problem may be related to spinal alignment or another chiropractic issue, especially if they don’t experience back pain as a symptom. By supplementing their current massage therapy with chiropractic care, they find deeper, better, and faster relief from pain and are restored to more mobility and function.
Believe it or not, chiropractic care and massage therapy often go hand-in-hand when it comes to bringing relief to patients. After all, chiropractors deal with the hard tissues, such as the spine, vertebrae, and joints, while massage therapy addresses the soft tissues. These hard and soft tissues obviously interact in order for you to move and function, and they can affect each other in tangible ways. Together these treatments can provide complete care for optimal health.
Improve Your Chiropractic Care
If you have a hurting back, chronic leg or joint pain, or many other issues, chiropractic care can do quite a bit to help in and of itself. However, massage therapy specifically can help those ligaments and muscles relax and speed up the healing process. As these treatments work together to ease the stress on body, you’re able to move more comfortably.
You don’t have to choose between massage therapy and chiropractic care. In fact, each one is far more effective when you combine these two treatments. Whether you have chronic shoulder or neck pain, knots in your muscles, or a back injury, you can find relief in both of these effective treatments.
