Traditionally massage therapy and chiropractic care have been two separate distinct treatments. However, here at Verona Spine and Wellness we utilize both treatments in real time for relieving pain, restoring mobility, and increasing overall health. You may ask, “can my pain or condition be helped with the combination of therapies at your center?”
We answer that question with a resounding yes. After your initial visit with us if the doctor’s feel your history and condition would benefit from the combination of the two therapies you will be allowed to participate in our protocol.
How will the two therapies help me specifically or in conjunction?
Massage therapy deals with working on soft tissues, where chiropractic care focuses on the nervous system, the musculoskeletal structure, and hard tissues. Knowing how these treatments work together can greatly improve your musculoskeletal function, thus improving your overall health.
Massage therapy focuses on manipulating the soft tissues like muscles, tendons, and ligaments by improving circulation and blood flow that warms these soft tissues, causing them to loosen and relax. To do this, our experienced therapist(s) depending on the diagnosis or history may apply light, moderate, or deep rhythmic hand and arm movements that help alleviate muscle pain and ache, while increasing flexibility.
Using a variety of massage techniques, therapeutic massage improves circulation, decreases muscle tension and stiffness, and promotes relaxation. Increasing circulation delivers oxygen and nutrients that stimulate healthy muscle function, which promotes healing, reduces pain, and can prevent future injuries. This process helps muscles dispose of lactic acid that gathers in our muscles, often causing painful muscle spasms and stiffness.
After reading above how massage helps overall function it’s easy to see why both treatments are so popular and equally effective. Remember our goal here at Verona Spine & Wellness center is to get you back on your feet in the quickest amount of time and to improve overall spinal function.
