Some couples just belong together: Simon & Garfunkel; Abercrombie & Fitch; Jack and Jill. It’s hard to imagine one without the other. If it never crossed your mind, add to the “famous” couples list chiropractic and massage. If you regularly receive chiropractic care, maybe it’s time to consider adding massage for a total well-being treatment (and vice versa).
Why do the two work so well together?
Chiropractic adjustments and massages work together because they help maintain overall health. Both are effective, drug-free and safe therapies that focus on the cause of pain rather than the symptoms.
Combining the two to ease sore muscles and treat other medical ailments can shorten recovery time from injuries or illnesses, or ease discomfort caused by permanent conditions. Polls show that people use massage and chiropractic care for conditions such as osteoarthritis, neck and back pain, muscle strain, headaches and other joint discomfort. The pair can help improve your range of motion that might otherwise be hindered by an injury or conditions related to ageing.
How does massage support chiropractic and vice versa?
Chiropractic is about identification and treatment of pain at its source and increasing mobility and comfort. Chiropractors understand how supposedly random symptoms are related; they also know how various treatments can complement and support one another for complete healing.
Like chiropractic care, massage offers pain relief and healing through a natural, hands-on technique. Since massage promotes relaxation of the muscles, chiropractic adjustments can be done with more ease. Massages, like spinal adjustments, can also improve flexibility and mobility in muscles, ligaments and joints.
Suffering from the results of a car accident, a sports injury or chronic pain? Massage plus chiropractic care can help encourage healing and manage pain from conditions such as arthritis and fibromyalgia. Because the immune system is stimulated by massage and chiropractic treatments, in a way you are using the body’s own energy to promote healing.
To make it easy to start incorporating massage into a total wellness plan, Roach Chiropractic, Inc. has licensed massage therapists on staff. If you’re a current chiropractic patient, ask Dr. Roach which type of massage is best for you and schedule your first session. Then enjoy the benefits of a more relaxed, pain-free body.
