The Importance of Massage Therapy
A good massage can mean something different to everyone you talk to. Some need a soft fluid motion that allows their body and mind to relax and relieve them of their stress. Others need the deep, muscle manipulation that breaks up knots and flushes away toxins in the body. Massage therapy of all kinds offers therapeutic benefits to those who need it. We here at BAC Clinic of Chiropractic and Spine Rehabilitation in Sioux City, IA, and Dr Brad Chicoine know all about the importance of massage therapy.
Benefits of Massage Therapy
The benefits of massage therapy start with improved circulation and the flushing of toxins out of the body. The manual manipulation of the soft tissues helps break up tension and improves overall flexibility and range of motion. It also helps stimulate the formation of new muscle fibers and the repair of damaged ones. This increases the overall strength and resiliency of the muscle tissue.
In Conjunction with Chiropractic Care
Our chiropractor knows that following up an adjustment with deep tissue massage can help keep you healthy. Both treatment options benefit and support one another, helping to hasten the healing process and strengthening the body while helping the entire structure to remain in balance. Using both not only encourages healing but supports the body throughout the process.
Part of an Effective Pain Management Plan
Our chiropractor will also include deep tissue massage as part of a well-balanced pain management plan. Not only does massage improve circulation, but it also helps to reduce inflammation. The manipulation of the soft tissues around an injury will help bring nutrients and fresh oxygen to the area so that healing can begin. As the blood brings the nutrients the tissues need, it carries away the toxins and excess fluids that cause the inflammation. As the inflammation begins to decrease, mobility returns to the affected area and the pain there is minimized.
