The Healing Potential of Massage Therapy

Long before modern surgical techniques and other cutting-edge medical technologies existed, practitioners used manual therapies as critical tools for healing and pain relief. Massage therapy is a modern-day example of the effectiveness of this approach in treating a wide range of ailments and symptoms.  This is why our two-chiropractor team here at Beyond Chiropractic, Dr. Roy Clarke and Dr. Danielle Clarke, frequently prescribes massage therapy in support of chiropractic adjustment and other natural, time-tested healing techniques. Whether you're suffering from tight muscles or trying to recover from a serious injury, you may this form of care invaluable.

Massage can take many forms, each conveying its own special benefits. Depending on your individual needs, our chiropractor may recommend such techniques as:

  • Swedish massage - This well-known form of light massage is typically offered in health spas as a means of loosening tight muscles and reducing stress, which in turns improves sleep, immune response and other important wellness factors. It also enhances circulation to help injured tissues close to the skin heal themselves more efficiently.

  • Deep tissue massage - Deep tissue massage is more intense than Swedish massage because the strokes are meant to treat tissues deep under the skin. We may prescribe this massage to undo stubborn muscle knots and scar-tissue adhesions for chronic pain relief.

  • Trigger point therapy - This cousin of deep tissue massage focuses on trigger points, areas of chronic muscle tightness that refer pain elsewhere in the body. Releasing these trigger points relieves nerve stress for instant pain relief. This technique, like other forms of massage, can be rescheduled as often as needed to keep pain at bay.

Some forms of massage therapy are also targeted at specific conditions or lifestyles. Prenatal massage, for instance, is designed to help expectant mothers weather the aches, pains, hormonal imbalances and circulation problems that accompany pregnancy. Sports massage is prescribed for the treatment of repetitive strain disorders such as tendonitis as well as acute soft tissue injuries. As a preventative measure, it serves to loosen those muscle groups the athlete relies on most for optimal performance in an upcoming event.

Massage therapy is a natural complement to chiropractic care for a variety of reasons. Since the body is all one integrated machine, a problem that affects the skeleton or nerves can easily involve muscles, fascia and connective tissues as well. For example, if you hurt your neck in an auto accident, our chiropractor may prescribe both spinal adjustments to restore normal vertebral alignment and massage therapy to help torn neck muscles heal and rehabilitate themselves. Massage therapy can also aid chiropractic adjustment in our efforts to improve nerve function and normalize systemic health and wellness.

Testimonial

Doctors are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. They take time to listen and their office is SUPER kid friendly. Doctor Roy was very gentle while treating my 3 year old son and I will be quite comfortable to take my whole family there.
