Massage Therapy vs Chiropractic Care
Whether you’re trying to keep your body in top condition or you’re recovering from an injury, most people choose to go for massage therapy or chiropractic help. However, did you know you can have a greater impact if you choose to do them together? By correcting the structure, this leads to less discomfort during the massage; on the flip side, the reduced muscle tension from the massage prevents the structure from being pulled from its place. As a result, they make a great team!
With your goal of recovering and maintaining the best possible well being, chiropractic and massage therapy work together in achieving it. Without the use of drugs, they’re hands-on forms of treatment that can also relax the mind and help to forget the stresses of the world!
Typically, massage therapy works on the nerves so it comes before the chiropractic treatment for best results. When the body is stiff, chiropractic adjustments become much harder so massage therapy allows the body to loosen somewhat. In turn, the chiropractor will have an easier time realigning.
For those under constant physical and mental stress, chiropractic treatment is ideal and massage therapy only adds to this. With a busy lifestyle to lead, stress and tightness can make it much harder but the two forms of treatment can work together to reduce both.
In the past, we, at Quantum Medical and Wellness Center, have helped people to get back on their feet after a car accident, physical injury, sports injury, gardening injury, many others. After a massage, the immune system actually stimulates along with blood circulation and this has numerous benefits itself. For example, positive blood flow can relieve headaches which can be quite an issue for many people. Furthermore, improved blood circulation promotes nerve flow and decreases pain.
Spinal Issues - With spinal stress, it’s important you heed the warning signs your body gives. With no treatment in place, the issue will quickly deteriorate and you’ll eventually experience pain every single day. If it gets to the point where it’s affecting your work and personal life, it’s time to seek help from professionals and enter a recovery phase of massage therapy and chiropractic treatment.
Often, the early signs of spinal distress come in the form of a tingling sensation in the shoulder, arms, and the legs; sometimes, this can lead to numbness. As soon as you feel the sensation multiple times, get in touch with Quantum Medical and Wellness Center and we’ll arrange an appointment to get you on the road to recovery. Not only do we aim to deal with the issue, we want to ensure it doesn’t come back and this is achieved when your body is in peak physical condition.
Depending on your needs, different types of massage can be used and this is the beauty of the practice. For example, a Swedish massage is ideal for relaxing the whole body and rejuvenating the muscles and tissues within. On the other hand, a deep tissue massage can get deeper into the muscles and help the body to repair injuries. After this, there are several others and the right technique will be chosen to resolve YOUR issue.
As you can see, chiropractic treatment and massage therapy go together perfectly as they deal with the problem, bring your body up to a state of positive wellbeing, and then keep you there for as long as possible after!
