Massage & Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care and massage are two distinct holistic therapies that can be used to relieve problems on the musculoskeletal system. The two therapies can be combined to achieve more beneficial results and can impact both your mind and body.
Chiropractic care alleviates joint dysfunctions that lead to irritation of the nerves. When the nerves are irritated, there is loss of function. Loss of function causes the muscle to tighten around the joint.
Chiropractic Care at Pro Performance Movement
In most cases, chiropractic care alone can get you out of pain. But sometimes, the muscle around the area is TOO tight, and it makes the adjustment more difficult or causes the patient more pain. In our office, we incorporate some muscle work around the problem area on top of the adjustments. We often will recommend a massage session as well to help with the
pain and accelerate your treatment plan.
Massage Therapy Sessions at Pro Performance Movement
Massage sessions are usually seen as a relaxing self care treat or add-on and rarely seen as a necessity, but we like to see it as a beneficial pain management option in conjunction with chiropractic care or rehab. Some benefits of massage include:
relaxing tight muscles
increasing flexibility in the joints
stimulating lymphatic system
lowering stress hormones
reducing anxiety and depression
Our massage sessions include a mix of different types of techniques and tools including:
trigger point release
The complementary therapies build on the benefits of each other creating a powerful healing solution. A massage therapist can loosen ligaments and muscles and help with relaxation, while a chiropractor restores spinal alignment.
Here are what some of our patients report after combining the two therapies:
faster recovery times
pain relief and prevention
overall better mental health
daily tasks are easier to complete
better sleep and posture
This holistic blend of treatments can help reduce overall pain, boost mental and physical wellness, and reduce stress so you can get back to living the life you deserve to live (pain-free)!
