Massage therapy and chiropractic care are both fantastic treatments for relieving pain, restoring mobility, and increasing overall health. When used together, these compatible therapies enhance the health and wellness benefits of each treatment. Knowing how these treatments work together can greatly improve musculoskeletal function, thus improving your overall health.
A chiropractic adjustment reduces mis-alignments in the spine and other joints in the body, in an effort to reduce inflammation and pain, whilst improving joint mobility and nervous system function. Meanwhile, massage targets all the soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia), with the aim of improving tissue mobility and flexibility, and reducing inflammation and pain.
Your muscles function through coordinated movements and timing because of the signals they receive from your nervous system, via your spinal cord. By reducing inflammation and restriction in both your muscles and your nervous system, you are allowing optimal function and communication throughout the body. After a massage, your soft tissue layers are looser, making chiropractic treatment more effective and making your pain relief last longer. In addition, the soft tissues treated with massage heal quicker once the joints are realigned.
