Chiropractic And Massage Therapy

When it comes to working together, chiropractic and massage therapy are a perfect match. The staff here at Fitness Chiropractic & Massage Therapy is committed to helping each patient heal to the fullest possible degree. While chiropractic adjustments are the cornerstone of healing many painful conditions and illnesses, they can be supplemented by complementary therapies like massage to speed up your healing and help lend additional pain relief.

Chiropractic Care For Healing

Chiropractic care is a completely natural way to help the body heal. The human spinal cord is connected to all of the nerves in your body, making it like a command center for your whole body. When you feel pain sensations in nearly any area ranging from your head to your toes, those pain sensations can usually be traced back to the nerves connected to the spine.

This means that if your spine is out of alignment, the rest of your body will let you know about it through pain signals, or even through lethargy or a general feeling of being unwell. Chiropractors are highly trained in properly aligning the spinal column, which in turn will allow your pain signals to diminish. A properly aligned spine is key to overall health, and chiropractic care can give you that.

Chiropractic adjustments are extremely effective for most patients, especially those who are seeking pain control in a natural way, however it is not the type of therapy that has to be done alone. In fact, we often recommend a massage therapy regimen to correspond with your chiropractic adjustments to help you heal and feel your very best.

Massage Therapy to Speed Healing

Massage therapy is performed by a licensed massage therapist. You may already be familiar with massage as a tool for relaxation, but perhaps you have always thought of it as a spa offering only. In fact, massage is a very valuable tool in healing and well being, especially when it is used as a supplement to chiropractic care.

Massage therapy can help to restore a better range of motion in patients who are suffering from restricted movement after an accident. It can also help increase the blood flow to muscles which need it, and it can help reduce pain and inflammation.

If patients have scar tissue buildup in or around their muscles, the massage therapist can target these areas and gently break apart this buildup, which can also bring considerable pain relief. If pain relief is a priority in your recovery, massage is a very important tool that you should consider.

Your massage therapy sessions may take place either before or after chiropractic adjustments. Most patients don't find massage to cause any discomfort or pain. In fact, it is so relaxing that many people find themselves starting to doze off while the massage therapist is working on them.

If you are currently under chiropractic care but you want to really jump start your pain relief, massage therapy may be the answer.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
