The body has an inherent ability to repair itself, but sometimes it needs help. Chiropractic care, acupuncture sessions and therapeutic massage treatments provide that external support.
Five Types of Pain Chiropractic Care and Massage Relieve
Pregnancy-related pain, including back pain, joint pain and muscle aches. Mothers-to-be experience hormone-induced physiological changes such as back pain and muscle and joint aches. Combining massage techniques with chiropractic care supports proper spine alignment, giving the body more opportunities for self-healing.
Sports-related injuries, including sprains, strains, muscle spasms and other soft tissue problems. Casual and professional athletes may experience pain throughout the body associated with intense training, competing in a rigorous event or equipment failures. Sports massage enables the body to flush out harmful waste, stimulates proper blood circulation and releases muscle tension.
Migraines. Depending on the severity of your pain, our licensed massage therapist may combine Swedish massage with other treatments such as aromatherapy, hot stones or reflexology to relieve stress and tension, two known migraine triggers.
Fibromyalgia. Our professional therapist utilizes multiple techniques to address muscle tension, improve joint motion and enhance the body’s ability to release natural painkillers. As circulation improves, vital nutrients and oxygen flow more efficiently throughout the body, supporting the function of organs and body systems.
Neck pain. About one in six people suffers from transient and chronic neck pain. Neck pain may originate from arthritis, auto accident injuries, pinched nerves and poor posture. Chiropractic treatments relieve spinal decompression that traps nerves. Our therapist may incorporate myofascial release techniques, massaging the neck, jaw, head, throat and face to promote healing and reduce pain.
