Massage therapy is one of the most valuable treatment options a chiropractor can offer. Its benefits go far beyond the physical body and provide soothing comfort for individuals who may not respond well to harsh medications and invasive treatment options. In addition, deep-tissue massage can help strengthen and tone soft tissues without irritating the injured area when used in conjunction with chiropractic care.
Benefits of Soft Tissue Manipulation
Deep-tissue massage, or soft-tissue manipulation, offers several benefits. It relaxes the body and calms the mind. It will also strengthen muscles and connective tissues to support one another. In addition, manipulating the body's soft tissues improves blood flow and lymphatic drainage, providing vital nutrients to the tissues and carrying away waste. Additionally, we can use these tactics together to achieve the most optimal result.
Chiropractic Adjustments and Massage Therapy
Our chiropractor will use deep-tissue massage along with chiropractic adjustments. When an adjustment is made, massage therapy will strengthen the soft tissues to support the skeletal structure and hold the bones in place for much longer. This therapy gives the injured area time to heal correctly, preventing long-term damage and reducing chronic pain and discomfort risk.
Not only Relaxation
Massage therapy can help the body relax. While it does that, it isn't the only thing deep-tissue massage is known for. A 60-minute, deep-tissue massage burns almost as many calories as a 60-minute workout in the gym. The muscles are manipulated deeper, calories will continue to burn for several hours, and your body will continue to function more efficiently for extended periods. In addition, a good massage will relieve your stress and improve your state of mind.
