Chiropractic & Massage: A Complementary Care For Your Good Health

Chiropractic massageBoth massage and chiropractic offer a way to support your healthy lifestyle and well-being. That is the main reason we pioneered the fully integrated chiropractic/massage practice here in the Western suburbs in the 1980’s. It has been proven to be effective and much appreciated by our patients over these many years.

A spinal check-up (like a dental, eye or medical check-ups) may spot things before problems develop. The addition of regular massage in your Health Regime helps to release chronically contracted muscles and fascia, improving balance among spinal muscle groups and promoting a healthful circulation. This can make your body more resilient in the face of daily stresses, making it less prone to injury.

The Benefits

Massage

You will be less anxious and more than ready to receive an adjustment after a relaxing massage.

Recovery is normally faster and more complete when you address multiple components of your pain. Chiropractic treatment often proceeds more easily with less discomfort when soft tissue has been relaxed with massage.

Spinal corrections (adjustments) frequently last longer when muscle tension is released after a good massage. This will allow you to ''hold'' those segments better which in turn can help with your prognosis.  

Chiropractic

If your pain is due to a spinal misalignment (subluxation) a low-force repositioning (adjustment) by your chiropractor may help.

You’ll find that surrounding soft tissue heals quickly once its free of the stress of misaligned joints. Adjustments can relax the deeper layers of soft tissue that can be difficult to reach with massage alone.

Your chiropractor uses x-rays and diagnostic techniques to evaluate other possible causes for your pain and can make appropriate referrals if necessary.

Benefits for Mothers-To-Be

Pregnant WomanWith chiropractic's close affinity for all things natural, the need for spinal alignment during the long, strenuous months of pregnancy was self evident to early chiropractors and has been carried on with today's chiropractic doctors using modern low-force techniques and adjusting tables when the mother-to-be deemed she needed it..

Chiropractic would be available to help the mother-to-be attain a flexible and balanced spine, hips and pelvis.

Our own scope of practice goes a bit further with the research and development of a massage table-top to allow pregnant mothers to lie down on their enlarged tummys very safely and comfortably to receive a normal positioned massage.

With these well thought-out additions, we are thereby insuring that these mums-to-be can have the best of both worlds; spinal maintenance and back muscle relaxation as needed. So by the end of their term they are comfortable and can have the stamina needed in the birthing process.

At our office....it's always a WIN-WIN experience.
