Is Chiropractic Care Limited to Healing the Skeleton?
Chiropractic care is not limited to just the skeletal structure of the body. It also addresses problems within the connective tissue and the muscles that have a direct impact on how the skeletal structure functions. Chiropractic care brings the body back into sync, aligning the skeletal structure, increasing mobility by supporting the connective tissue and strengthening the muscles to help improve stamina, all of which help regulate and restore optimal nervous system function. Using chiropractic care supports the entire body and helps the healing process move along more quickly and efficiently.book now
Why Chiropractic Care?
For the right individual, chiropractic care can be a safe and effective way to manage pain and restore optimal health and function to the joints of the body, including the spine, ribs, and extremities. Chiropractic works well to relieve back and neck pain, chronic headaches, tech neck, sciatica, and disc bulging, to name a few. At Revive, we perform assessments at in-take to make sure it is safe to adjust you and in cases where we believe additional or other care is necessary, we turn to our professional resources to support you. We would rather see you happy and on the path to wellness then keep you on the hamster wheel of unnecessary care.
Can Chiropractic Care and Massage Therapy be Used Together?
Chiropractic care and massage therapy can be used together as complementary treatment options. While the chiropractic adjustment restores motion to the joints and allows them to return to optimal function, deep tissue massage manipulates the soft tissues of the muscles, releasing toxins and reintroducing an increase in blood flow. As more blood rushes into the area, fresh oxygen and nutrients are delivered to the cells, while the wastes are carried away. Massage therapy also releases tight and restricted tissues, allowing them to be more supportive of the chiropractic adjustments that have been performed.
What Treatment Methods are Used in Conjunction with Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care can be used in conjunction with many different modalities. Acupuncture, deep tissue massage therapy, fire cupping, and Reiki all work to support the structural changes that occur during a chiropractic adjustment. Each treatment method offers a unique set of benefits that can help in many different situations. Acupuncture and Reiki are ideal for patients who find a mental emotional connection to their pain, such as stress, or grief. In addition to acupuncture, massage therapy and chiropractic adjustments work quite well for injuries, inflammation and chronic pain conditions. While chiropractic care is quite effective on its own, its benefits are enhanced when combined with other modalities that expand the treatment plan.
