If you’re living in pain or would like to enhance your health, Dr. Jason Winseck and the team at Cascades Chiropractic Wellness Center in Sterling, VA offer massage therapy and other treatment techniques to help you achieve relief.
Your Guide to Massage Therapy in Chiropractic Care
When you visit the chiropractor for pain, tension, and other musculoskeletal issues, you’ll typically find a lot of relief through chiropractic adjustments. However, when those adjustments and other chiropractic techniques are used in conjunction with massage therapy, the results can be phenomenal. Learn more about how below.
Most chiropractic techniques address misalignment within the skeletal system. As a misalignment can lead to damage and pain in the muscular system and other soft tissues, an adjustment can provide relief for the entire musculoskeletal system. However, there are times when more than an adjustment is needed to address the soft tissues.
Massage therapy is designed to specifically work on soft tissues. It helps to relieve pain and tension, enhance rest and general wellness, improve blood flow throughout the body, increase range of motion, and more. It’s often used to address issues such as:
- Back and neck pain
- Pinched nerves
- Disc issues
- Sleep trouble
- High blood pressure
How They Work Together for Optimal Results
Regardless of your condition, a treatment plan that fully addresses both the hard and soft tissues is the best option. Imagine that you are suffering from chronic back pain that impacts your posture, your range of motion, and how well you can carry out your regular daily tasks.
Chiropractic adjustments and spinal decompression can help to correct any alignment issues that might be causing compression on your soft tissues. Massage therapy can then target those soft tissues to relieve tension. It will also pull blood to the areas being treated, which will speed up and enhance your healing.
As your soft tissues are loosened up, your chiropractor can then more fully address issues in the spine. In short, these methods can continue to work together until you have reached the desired results.
The exact type and amount of each you need will depend on your specific condition. Upon visiting Dr. Winseck at Cascades Chiropractic Wellness Center in Sterling, VA, a treatment plan will be developed that is customized to your personal needs.
