Tandem Care: Why Massage and Chiropractic Care Go Hand-in-Hand
If you suffer from chronic pain, you might benefit from a combined approach of both chiropractic care and massage therapy in Gresham & Portland, OR. A professional combination of chiropractic adjustments and therapeutic massage techniques can help you overcome pain without the use of medicines, improve your range of motion, and improve your general health. Examine how chiropractic massage therapy can assist you in overcoming your specific issues.
Massage has a long successful history as a well-established therapeutic modality. Soft tissue manipulation can help an injured body part heal more quickly while also ridding itself of inflammatory substances more effectively by increasing blood and lymph flow, relaxing tight muscles and tendons, and helping an injured body part heal more quickly.
Massage can be used to address a variety of health and wellbeing issues. Deep tissue massage, for example, breaks up interior scar tissue and treats persistent ailments closer to the bones, whereas Swedish massage calms and relaxes superficial tissues. Muscle knots that cause pain throughout the body can be relieved by trigger point massage. Aspire Chiropractic and Massage Care can address problems such as:
- Sprains and strains
- Chronic Musculoskeletal pain
- Problems with sleep
- Repetitive motion injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
- Inflammation of arthritis
- Circulatory system problems
- Mood disturbances
- Discomfort during pregnancy
- Chronic Headaches
- Back or neck pain
Massage therapy can also help you maintain your overall health. Improved blood flow, organ function, and fluid drainage can help your immune system respond more effectively, and relaxed muscles are less prone to damage.
How often should I get a massage?
The frequency of getting a massage is up to you. Of course, getting a massage regularly (weekly or monthly) gives the most benefit.
Do I have to get completely undressed for my massage?
No, we ask that you dress down to your comfort level. Regardless of your choice to wear clothes, undergarments, etc, the massage therapist will always ensure that you are appropriately covered.
Do you talk during a massage?
The treatment is about your healing and relaxing. Some people enjoy talking during a massage but it’s up to you how the session is spent. We always ask that you speak up if anything needs to be altered including the pressure, temperature, music, etc.
What if I fall asleep during my massage?
Sleeping during massage is not uncommon and we promise to not judge you. We like to see our patients so relaxed.
When should I avoid getting a massage?
Massage should be avoided if you are feeling sick or unwell, and/or if you have a skin condition that is contagious.
