Atlantic Chiropractic & Rehabilitation Offers Chiropractic Massage
When injury or disease conditions cause musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction, treatment may require a variety of techniques to alleviate symptoms. Massage therapy offers many benefits for the healing of injuries and improving mobility. At Atlantic Chiropractic & Rehabilitation in Chesapeake, VA, we provide chiropractic massage as one of our many techniques for relieving pain and improving function.
What Is Chiropractic Massage?
Massage has been used to aid injuries and improve health for thousands of years. The method uses touch and manipulation to increase blood flow to affected areas, to reduce tension, eliminate pain and improve muscle function. Chiropractic massage is generally used in conjunction with other techniques, such as manual adjustment and corrective exercise to improve healing of injured tissue and increase both range of motion and flexibility. The manipulation of tissue improves circulation and stimulates the production of natural healing compounds.
Benefits of Massage
The health community at large has begun to embrace the benefits of massage in recent years. The technique can often provide greater relief of pain than medications alone and relieves the stress of dealing with the ongoing physical injury. Fundamentally, human touch has a relaxing effect on individuals, who may be dealing with ongoing pain and poor function. The effect can also help to reduce the anxiety and depression of living with a physical problem. In addition, massage increases the blood flow to the affected part of the body, which increases oxygen, nutrients and pain-relieving neurotransmitter chemicals. Some musculoskeletal problems are a result of poor posture, and massage can help to improve muscle function for improved postural control.
Conditions Chiropractic Massage Can Help
Chiropractic massage therapy can help to reduce troublesome symptoms of back pain, neck discomfort sprains from sports injuries, strains from poor posture, stiffness from healing injuries and arthritis. Massage can also be used to relieve physical strains associated with pregnancy. If you have chronic musculoskeletal pain, chiropractic massage, combined with other techniques, can offer relief.
