What is Chiropractic Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy and chiropractic care are complementary techniques that both seek to improve musculoskeletal health and mobility while relieving pain and reducing discomfort. Dr. Matt Slater of Mason Chiropractic & Rehabilitation Center notes that both treatments work to create a harmonious effect, which allows for a faster recovery for the patient because when the body has a chance to relax, it helps a chiropractor to realign the spine.

What is Massage Therapy?

The primary objectives of massage therapy are to promote relaxation, reduce muscle tension, improve circulation, enhance lymphatic drainage, and alleviate stress. Massage therapy involves manipulating the body’s soft tissue, - i.e., stroking, kneading, tapping, compression, and vibration. These soft tissue manipulations may work on muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other connective tissue. As a therapeutic approach, chiropractic massage is typically effective at -  

  • Promoting General or Overall Wellness
  • Rehabilitating or Supporting Recovery After an Injury.
  • Managing Pain/Discomfort.
  • Reducing Stress, and more.

How Chiropractic Care Works With Massage Therapy?

Massage therapists – who can be trained professionally in various massage techniques, work with individuals to address or treat specific issues or ailments that disrupt their life or daily routine, like –

  • Muscle Pain
  • Stress-Related Tension
  • Stiffness
  • Reduced Range Of Motion

When chiropractic care is utilized in combination with massage therapy, it has been shown to encourage healing/mending of the following issues/ailments -

  • Back Pain.
  • Post-Op Care.
  • Joint Pain.
  • Pinched Nerves.
  • Sleep Issues.
  • Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction.
  • Disc Issues.
  • Headaches, Migraines, and more.

Should I Get a Massage Before or After Chiropractic Care?

A massage can be done before a chiropractic adjustment to loosen tight muscles surrounding the target joint.  However, many people find getting a massage after chiropractic care beneficial as it relaxes muscles and helps sustain the realigned joints.
