Lodes Chiropractic Center Offers Massage Therapy
Chiropractic treatment combined with massage offers greater benefits for treatment, in terms of reduced pain and faster healing. At Lodes Chiropractic Center in Wilmington, DE, we offer massage therapy as one of the many treatment modalities we use to help our patients.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care and Massage Therapy Combined
Massage has a long history as an Asian healing technique. It was used for thousands of years to treat a variety of disorders and to maintain health. Today, its benefits are still recognized as an effective way to reduce stress, improve mood, encourage faster healing, and improve bodily function. Chiropractic care involves treatment of the hard structures within the body. Massage therapy adds another dimension to treatment, improving the function of the soft tissues, muscles, and tendons that support the spine and joints. Massage can also help relax individuals, which helps to decrease their perception of pain.
Conditions Massage Therapy Can Help
Massage can be combined with chiropractic care for many different types of problems:
- It helps to relieve sore muscles that have been doing extra work to compensate for chronic back pain.
- It relieves muscle tension that accompanies vertebral misalignment that leads to headaches.
- Massage can decrease discomfort from arthritis pain.
- It encourages blood flow and the carrying of nutrients to areas injured in auto accidents and sports activities.
- It helps pinched nerves and carpal tunnel syndrome.
- Massage reduces tension that increases the pain of fibromyalgia and other conditions.
What Happens during Massage Therapy?
Our chiropractor will carefully evaluate your health issue to determine the best techniques for your specific treatment. If massage is indicated, it may be performed after you have received standard spinal adjustment or other care. In some cases, massage may be done initially, to allow the individual to relax properly to enhance the effectiveness of adjustment. After a massage, individuals can continue their usual activities.
