The Potential Benefits of Massage Therapy Combined With Chiropractic Care

Most chiropractors combine chiropractic treatments in order to give the patient the best chance at a successful recovery. Because chiropractic care is non-invasive, it is safe to combine treatment methods with minimal risk of side effects. Here’s a look at the benefits of combining chiropractic care with massage therapy in East Islip, NY at Islip Chiropractic & Wellness.

Improved Results

Massage therapy relieves stress and tension in the muscles, joints, and ligaments. When the muscles and tendons are relaxed, other chiropractic therapies have a better potential at a successful outcome. It also helps to break the muscle memory cycle quicker.

Reduced Pain & Inflammation

Many chronic and acute pain conditions cause or are caused by inflammation or swelling. Massage therapy and chiropractic treatments relieve inflammation and swelling, reduce pain, and improve flexibility and range of motion. Monthly chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy sessions can offer lasting pain relief without the use of prescription medications. 

Prevention of Future Injury

Routine chiropractic adjustments improve your posture, balance, spinal alignment, and flexibility. This reduces your risk of future injury and lessens the chances of developing aches and pains. Combining massage therapy and chiropractic care can prevent pain from returning by relaxing and elongating the muscles. When muscles are stronger and more flexible, they better support the spine, thus reducing the risk of misaligned joints. 

Faster Recovery Times

Combining massage therapy and chiropractic adjustments can improve your recovery time. Both treatment methods address a variety of symptoms that might be stressing the body and making it harder for it to recover. When a chiropractor treats these symptoms simultaneously, the body has a better chance of becoming stronger and healthier. 

Increased Circulation

When chiropractic care and massage therapy are used together, they increase circulation and blood flow throughout the body. This means that oxygen and nutrients can get to where they are most needed, and your flexibility and range of motion will improve. These two treatments combined can also improve circulation of the lymphatic and nervous system.

Reduced Stress & Tension

Stress and tension can make pain worse. When your body is tense, your muscles tense and contract frequently, eventually causing pain, soreness, and stiffness. Chronic and acute pain and other symptoms can also increase your stress levels and make it harder for your body to heal. When your body is overly stressed, your immune response and natural healing abilities can be lessened.
