How Does Massage Therapy Benefit a Chiropractic Adjustment?
Massage therapy compliments chiropractic adjustments in many different ways. While the chiropractic adjustment works to restore alignment to the skeletal system, the massage therapy also allows the muscles an opportunity to relax into their normal function, making the adjustment even more effective. Massage therapy supports the soft tissues, releases adhesions in the fascia and increases blood flow to the tissue. This blood flow floods the injured area with both oxygen and nutrients that are needed by the tissues to strengthen as they heal. Using massage therapy with each chiropractic adjustment provides much-needed support that helps the musculoskeletal structure maintain its integrity as it heals. Chiropractic adjustments can also relieve pressure and tension placed on bones after a soft tissue injury. Chiropractic and Massage therapy work in tandem to alleviate pressure on both the skeletal and muscular systems, effectively positively impacting the nervous system in return.
What are the Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep tissue massage offers a wide variety of benefits over and above improved circulation. By manually manipulating the soft tissues of the muscles, massage increases flexibility, removing knots in the muscle tissue and flushing toxins and waste from the tissues. As the toxins are removed, fresh oxygen and nutrients take their place, providing the muscle with the nutritional support that is needed to continue the healing process. Manually manipulating the tissues also strengthens them in much the same way as physical exercise.
