Combining Chiropractic Care and Massage Therapy
APEX Wellness Center in Dallas knows that when in pain, people often visit a chiropractor or a massage therapist, depending on the type of pain they are experiencing. What most people do not realize is that getting both chiropractic care and massage therapy together can provide amazing benefits for all sorts of pain. Some very common pains can be reduced or eliminated with this combination of care including back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, and knee pain.
The Benefits of Visiting a Chiropractor
Chiropractic care works on the hard tissues of your body, which include your vertebrae and the joints in your spine. Adjustments to the spine can relieve pain and reduce pressure on your nerves. Additionally, an aligned spine can provide better support for your muscles.
The Benefits of Massage Therapy
Massage therapy, on the other hand, focuses on your soft tissues and the muscles. Tense and hurting muscles can lead to poor posture and a lack of support for your joints and spine, which can lead to additional pain and injuries. Through massage therapy, the tension in your muscles can be released, pain reduced, and your muscles can then support your bones and joints as intended.
The Combination of Care
It can be difficult to get a full adjustment and spinal alignment when your muscles are tense. By receiving massage therapy first, your muscles are loosened, which allows the chiropractor to more fully adjust your spine. When your spine is in alignment, your muscles are not overworking to compensate and your nerves are not being pinched.
The pain and suffering that comes from either a misaligned spine or sore muscles can affect the other. When both your spine and your muscles are in pain and working improperly, you can find yourself living with pain on a daily basis.
However, when you see a chiropractor at the same time you are receiving massage therapy, you are making important steps and putting your body back on track. By keeping both your joints and your muscles in good shape, you are giving each the power and ability they need to support one another.
