Why do they work so well together?
Remedial Massage is the assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body is used to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. Massage creates favourable conditions for the body to heal after injury, stress and tension. (1) Chiropractic care involves diagnosis, management and an adjustment of the nervous system to ensure the body is working at its optimum. (2) Combining Massage therapy and Chiropractic care allow the body to heal and to function well through both the muscular and nervous systems. Massage allows the body to relax and reduce muscle tightness. Massage facilitates and supports the chiropractic adjustments that your chiropractor gives you.
What can I expect when combining massage and chiropractic care?
A few benefits you may notice if you start combining care are: massage supports the adjustment with the body feeling more relaxed, and your body can heal without interference and a feeling of overall wellness and vitality.
Massage may help to improve circulation of blood and increase your immunity. Improved circulation may lead to faster healing and improved recovery. Increasing circulation means the body can deliver oxygen and nutrients to the body stimulating healthy muscle function, which promotes healing, reduces pain, and may prevent future injuries (4). Having a massage after or before your chiropractic treatment may help soothe sore muscles and calm down any spasm that may have been caused by the shift in your alignment.
Massage therapy and chiropractic care complement each other, allowing your body to be aligned, promotes actively healing enabling you to move more freely whilst helping you to achieve your personal goals and optimum health.
