Ever struggled in choosing between chiropractic care and massage therapy? Well, you don’t have to choose just one anymore! Chiropractic care and massage can help speed up the recovery process from sore muscles to other, more drastic medical issues. There have been studies shown that people have found relief from insomnia, back pain, arthritis, anxiety, soreness, fatigue and more just from combining these two powerful treatments.
Chiropractors are a specialized medical professional that use hands-on therapy to align the musculoskeletal system of the body to promote pain relief, healing, and overall wellness.
Chiropractors pay particular attention to the proper alignment of the vertebrae of the spine, though the bones, muscles, and connective tissues of other areas are also important to their practice.
Massage therapy is one of the most popular therapies as it not only feels amazing, it works wonders!
Traditionally, massage has been used to treat muscular pain and injuries, strain or injury to the soft tissues, such as those that arise from repetitive strain or spending too much time sitting in an office.
However, the benefits of massage therapy have become increasingly recognized for a wide range of other conditions as well. Studies have shown that massage therapy has been able to treat health conditions such as anxiety, high blood pressure, insomnia, and digestive disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome.
Both chiropractic care and massage therapy have excellent outcomes for wellness when it comes to both mental health and wellbeing as well as pain and stress relief.
However, the aims of the therapies are different. While chiropractic seeks to promote and maintain proper alignment of the bones of the spine and surrounding tissues as well as other areas of the body, massage therapy focuses on releasing tension from the muscles and encouraging deep relaxation. It really is the best of both worlds!
There are a couple of ways that massage therapy and chiropractic care can be used together.
Here in Altamonte Springs, we have two great places for you to receive both chiropractic care AND massage! At Heal. we have highly trained massage therapists that will cater to your specific and individual needs on a case by case basis. We refer many of our clients to Dr. Christina Cuellar over at Revival Chiropractic in Altamonte Springs as well!
Dr. Cuellar uses a gentle approach to chiropractic care where you won’t experience your neck being turned forcefully or any cracking of bones. She uses a specific approach that provides such great results to not only your physical health… but also your mental and emotional health.
The biggest reason in why we believe chiropractic care and massage therapy work so powerfully together is due to the effect it has on the nervous system. Studies have shown that your body must be in the right environment for healing, meaning that if you are constantly in “fight or flight” mode – your body cannot heal in this state.
Massage and chiropractic will help to ground your nervous system into the parasympathetic nervous system also known as the “rest and digest” mode.
This is where healing can take place.
