5 Ways Massage Therapy Complements Chiropractic Care
When some clients visit our Full Body Rejuvenation office in Lithonia, GA, they are surprised to find out we also offer chiropractic services. Actually, the two modalities complement each other nicely through a holistic health maintenance approach. By using different treatment methods, our professional staff helps clients address issues throughout the body simultaneously.
Saving Time and Money with Combination Treatments
Accessing diverse treatment plans from a single location is typically more convenient and less expensive than using multiple service providers scattered around the Atlanta metropolitan area. There are other ways that massage therapy enhances services delivered by chiropractors and vice versa.
Massage Therapy Strengthens the Immune System
People who experience traumatic injuries may face challenges in other body systems. Some studies have shown that massage therapy stimulates the immune system. This means your resistance to colds and airborne allergies will stay strong while your body focuses on recovery.
Combination Treatments to Eliminate Lactic Acid
Muscle spasms often develop when there is insufficient oxygen in the blood stream. Our chiropractor may administer spinal adjustments to enable better circulation and increase the blood flow. However, neuromuscular massage treatments help your body eliminate the buildup of lactic acid that makes muscle pain so intolerable.
Improving Flexibility and Relieving Pain
Muscle pain can be mild or debilitating. Many patients notice improvements immediately after trigger point massage treatments that target specific areas. It may take a few days, or even a few weeks to return to normal, but you should realize less tension and more muscle flexibility quicker by combining both treatment methods.
Healing from Sports Injuries
Athletes, and people who are serious about their overall fitness, may experience strains and sprains that produce inflammation and soreness after a particularly grueling workout or competition. Deep tissue massage assists the body by reducing inflammation; leading to faster recovery with less pain. Adding hot stone also helps relieve tension and promotes relaxation.
