What is it?
Massage therapy and chiropractic care are both fantastic treatments for relieving pain, restoring mobility and increasing overall health. When used together, these compatible therapies extend the health and wellness benefits of each treatment, benefiting the patient in a variety of ways. Massage therapy deals with the soft tissues, where chiropractic focuses on the nervous system, the musculoskeletal structure, and hard tissues. Knowing how these treatments work together can greatly improve your musculoskeletal function, thus improving your overall health.
How does it work?
Massage therapy focuses on manipulating the soft tissues like muscles, tendons and ligaments by improving circulation and blood flow that warms these soft tissues, causing them to loosen and relax.
To do this our on-site male and female therapists apply light, moderate or deep rhythmic hand and arm movements that help alleviate muscle pain and ache, while increasing flexibility. Our massage therapists specialize in: Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular re-education (PNF), Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, Reflexology, Sports or Swedish massages. You can schedule a 30-minute, 1 hour or a 1 ½ hour massage separately or Dr. Cathy may recommend it as part of your treatment plan. To schedule an appointment, call 225-295-9993.
