Most people know the benefits of chiropractic care, as well as the relaxing effects of massage therapy. But did you know that getting both regular massages and routine chiropractic adjustments can enhance your overall wellness?
Working Better Together
Many chiropractors and massage therapists work in tandem because their treatments are so complementary. According to The Joint Chiropractic, "A chiropractic adjustment reduces joint restrictions or misalignments in the spine and other joints in the body, in an effort to reduce inflammation and pain while improving function of both the affected joint and nervous system. The treatment itself is a highly-controlled procedure that uses minimal force and gentle pressure. Patients typically feel relief immediately after an adjustment. Meanwhile, massage works the tendons and muscles of the body. A skilled massage therapist uses techniques to manipulate the muscles and tendons that are affected by inflammation or pain. Different types of massage therapy include: trigger point, deep tissue, or Swedish massage."
