Massage Therapy Supplements Chiropractic Care So You Can Return to the Activities You've Had to Give Up
Massage therapy dates back thousands of years. It involves massaging the soft tissues of the body to reduce anxiety, lower blood pressure, lower heart rate, and decrease pain and tension. Massages can also be useful for a variety of chronic conditions. Here’s a look at how Algonquin Chiropractic Center uses massage therapy.
What Role Does Massage Therapy Play in Chiropractic Care?
We utilize massage therapy to treat a range of conditions including:
- Back spasms
- Muscular tension
- Tension headaches
- Sprains and strains
- Sciatica-related back and neck pain
This is not a relaxation massage! As a supplement to chiropractic care, a massage therapist uses a specific technique to relax muscles, increase range of motion, increase flexibility, improve posture, and restore normal function. Patients who receive massage therapy range from seniors to young athletes, but the goal is the same: to get you back to being able to walk, golf, swim, or whatever other activities you’ve had to give up due to your condition. Massage therapy accomplishes that all without dangerous drugs or surgery.
Of course, different types of massage therapy are used for specific issues. Dr. Galante and a trained massage therapist will work together to develop a treatment plan that employs the techniques which best fit your needs.
If you want to decrease your pain, increase your range of motion, and improve your posture so you can get back to your favorite life activities quickly and safely, give Algonquin Chiropractic Center a call today to learn how massage therapy can help you.
