Benefits of Massage Therapy with Our Chiropractor
Massage therapy is a centuries-old technique used to treat various conditions. At United Chiropractic Health Center in Ontario, CA, we are happy to offer massage therapy as part of our chiropractic services. Learn about the top benefits it provides below.
Reduces Pain and Tension
Though other things might also be at play, muscle tension is a prevalent source of pain. It can impact every part of the body, even causing headaches. Massage therapy is a natural and effective method for addressing muscle tension, which can reduce pain throughout the body.
Improved Circulation and Immunity
Your circulatory system directly impacts your heart and every other organ of the body. It not only carries blood and oxygen throughout your body to support the immune system. Massage therapy has proven to improve blood flow, keeping the body operating efficiently and increasing immunity.
When any part of the body is injured, it requires a healthy flow of blood, oxygen, and other healing nutrients. As massage improves circulation, it helps these nutrients get to injuries, speeding up recovery.
Promotes Relaxation and Better Sleep
One of the most well-known effects of massage therapy is its relaxing nature. It helps slow breathing, lower blood pressure, relieve muscle tension, decrease stress, release endorphins, boost dopamine, and promote relaxation. The more relaxed you feel, the better you sleep, and quality sleep can positively impact your daily life.
Improves Chiropractic Results
Massage therapy can provide many benefits when performed alone and enhance other chiropractic care. For example, most people visit the chiropractor for neck and back pain. First, the chiropractor will perform adjustments to help realign the spinal column. This step is essential, but the results will likely not last if the soft tissues of the area are tense.
However, lasting relief can come from combining the two treatments. Adjustments will help restore proper alignment. Massage can then reduce tension, reducing the strain on the skeletal system. Each adjustment will further align the spine, while each massage will relieve stress. The two will work together, further promoting the results of the other, to achieve optimal health and healing.
