How Massage Therapy Coincides with Chiropractic
Like we have discussed before, every system in your body correlates with one another. It will come at no surprise that your muscles play a large role in Chiropractic care. Lowcountry Chiropractic wants to help you understand how important massage is to the Chiropractic process.
Massage therapy targets the soft tissue in order to promote circulation and relaxation in your muscles. The increased circulation also brings oxygen and nutrients to the targeted muscles, promoting the healing of those areas. The healing of the muscles decreases the amount of pain a patient may be experiencing as well as spasms occurring. On a psychological level, massage helps a patient with stress, anxiety, and relaxation.
But how does this directly interact with Chiropractic?
Those muscles that are tense and unoxygenated surround the hard tissue in your body such as bones and joints. When the muscles in your body are tense, it is difficult to use your normal range of motion. When undergoing Chiropractic treatment, the desire is to have an easy adjustment of the body. Massage therapy can assist by loosening the muscles beforehand so that the bones undergoing adjustments move with little resistance. By working together, the treatments heighten the effects of one another.
