Chiropractic

Chiropractic works to fix misalignments in the spine. These misaligned vertebrae or joints can put pressure on the nerve. When pressure is put on the nerves it can cause a variety of problems. Problems vary from pain to numbness and tingling. If these symptoms are not taken care of, they can worsen over time. This can cause more pain and a longer recovery time. Chiropractic is good for those who have physical stress as well as mental stress.

Massage

Massage therapy works to remove muscle stress. Muscles are attached to the bones and joints. These muscles can affect the alignment of the spine causing pain and tightness. Massage therapy offers different massages for different symptoms. Swedish massages are typically beneficial when trying to relax. Deep tissue massage helps reach deep into the body. This can help repair damage caused by an injury. There are a variety of massages that can be beneficial depending on the needs of the patient.

The Best Time to Get a Massage

Massage focuses on relieving stress and tightness from muscles. Chiropractic care focuses on the nervous system and the joints associated with it. Tight muscles surrounding these joints can pull them out of alignment.  It is best to get a massage before chiropractic adjustments. Massage allows the body to become more relaxed. This helps the chiropractor be able to easily realign the spine. In turn, this helps adjustments become much more effective. In some cases the body can be so stiff it resists the adjustment. It is possible that this can prolong treatment. Massage can provide quicker relief for those who are in a lot of pain.

Benefits

The biggest benefit of massage and chiropractic is improving mobility. Massage and chiropractic share this same goal. Massage therapists work to relax the muscles. This helps the chiropractor perform a more effective adjustment. Ultimately this helps for a faster recovery. Receiving massages before chiropractic care also help to have smoother adjustments.

In addition to treating anxiety, massage and chiropractic care can help decrease stress.
