Schedule Your Appointment

At Advanced Health Chiropractic and Massage, we specialize in massage therapy to assist you with pain and injuries. Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our clinic provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient’s condition and injury. Massage therapy breaks down adhesions and helps with the facilitation of tissue repair. There are many different types of massage therapy depending on your specific needs. The Swedish massage is for relaxing the body. It will also help rejuvenate tissues and muscles. A deep tissue massage will go even deeper into the body to repair the damage.
Massage therapy can be used as both preventive and restorative therapy. Massage therapy is great for recovering from physical injuries due to car accidents, sports injuries, or a variety of other causes. The immune system is stimulated when massaged. By doing massage, your body’s natural energy is able to heal itself. There will be increased blood flow to the area that is being massaged which also helps healing. The improved circulation will help decrease the pain and stimulate the nerves. Soft tissue irritation and guarding can actually spread because it causes protective muscle tightening in surrounding areas. Over time, tight, inflamed muscles and fascia (together called myofascia) suffer poor circulation and can develop glue-like myofascial adhesions, which prevent muscles from lengthening completely. Painful trigger points can also develop, often referring pain or tingling to other areas in the body. In extreme cases, tight muscles can compress nerves or blood vessels.

Massage Therapy with Chiropractic Treatments

Massage therapists have a variety of techniques to address various musculoskeletal issues. Gentle kneading and stretching can relax strained, contracted muscles and relieve irritated fascia. Ligament sprains and muscle sprains, as well as adhered fascia, can be relieved directly by massage therapy, which can increase circulation, range of motion, and help tissue properly repair. This can also reduce swelling and promote healing by removing waste products and bringing in nutrient rich blood flow. This will help increase and speed up the healing process.
There are many benefits to adding massage therapy to your chiropractic treatments. Massage can help increase the speed of recovery, decrease pain, and help you stay in alignment before and after a chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractic adjustments can often be done more easily, and with less discomfort, when soft tissue has been relaxed with massage. Addressing soft tissue injuries are an important complement to chiropractic care. While a chiropractor can help your nervous system correct itself, massage can also help muscles, ligaments and fascia.
When used in combination, chiropractic and massage therapy will assist you in creating a synergistic effect that results in a much faster recovery time.
