What’s are the benefits of combining chiropractic adjustments with massage therapy?
Many people know firsthand the powerful benefits of a chiropractic adjustment and have experienced the relaxation and relief from massage therapy. But did you know that if you combine massage therapy with chiropractic care you will experience EVEN GREATER benefits?
Chiropractors focus their attention on ensuring proper alignment of the spine, but do you know why? Your delicate spinal cord is protected by the moveable bones of the spine. Nerves exit between these bones and bring information from the brain to all the organs and cells of your body, allowing your organs to function optimally. When your spine is out of alignment for periods of time, nerves become compressed and muscle imbalances create tight, stiff, achy and sometimes painful areas.
A skilled massage therapist uses specific techniques to relax your muscles affected by inflammation, pain or spinal imbalances. Even better? The more aligned your spine becomes, the less your muscles have to work to hold you up! It is possible to need fewer adjustments and massage therapy over time as your structure becomes healthier!
If you’re suffering from pain or inflammation from an injury, or you simply want to improve the function of your nervous system, adding massage therapy in conjunction with your routine chiropractic care would be the right decision for you!
