Massage Therapy VS. Chiropractic Care

Which is better? The answer… Both!

Most people know the benefits of chiropractic care, as well as the relaxing effects of massage therapy. But massage therapy is so much more than just a relaxing, pampering treatment.
Regular massages can actually help with pain management in the same way that chiropractic care does!
Imagine how your overall health would be enhanced if you did both regularly!

HOW THEY WORK

A chiropractic adjustment reduces joint restrictions or misalignments to the spine to reduce inflammation and pain, and improve function.
A skilled massage therapist manipulates the tendons and muscles that are affected by inflammation or pain. Your massage therapist can, and should, implement stretches into your massage to help relieve the tension that we all carry with us throughout the day.

WORKING BETTER TOGETHER

By reducing inflammation and restriction in both muscles and the nervous system through chiropractic care and massage, you are allowing optimal function and communication throughout the body. Ongoing regular treatment with both massage and chiropractic care will keep the pain from coming back.

Sounds great, right? There’s more!
Routine chiropractic care and massage therapy can also:

  • Improve immune system function
  • Increase blood flow
  • Increase flexibility
  • Improve overall range of motion

 

Getting a chiropractic adjustment and a massage regularly is your best bet for being pain free and in optimal health so you can live a happy active life!
