Both 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.
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.
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.
