Chiropractic Massage Therapy
The Power of Massage
Just hearing the word ‘massage’ may quickly relax you and put you in a better mood. Okay – so maybe it doesn’t quite work that way, but massage therapy certainly does have the potential to relax your body in a way few other treatments can offer. If you are hoping to take the best possible care of your body moving forward, there is a good chance that massage therapy can play a role in that care.
As you may know, it is extremely common for individuals to be treated with massage therapy. Millions of people use this kind of treatment each and every year, as there are a number of valuable benefits to potentially be enjoyed. Among some of the benefits you may experience if you decide to utilize chiropractic massage therapy include the following –
- Relief from pain
- Rehab from injuries, such as work or sports-related injuries
- Improved blood circulation
- Reduction in stress and anxiety
The benefits that you enjoy as a result of a chiropractic massage will depend, in large part, on the purpose for your treatment. The massage you receive will be planned in accordance with your needs, so maximum benefit can be enjoyed.

Reasons to Seek Massage Therapy
Individuals seek out massage therapy for a variety of reasons. It is somewhat difficult to list all of the potential benefits of massage, as it seems to offer something different to each individual patient. What you get out of massage may be different than another patient, depending on your needs and expectations, as well as the type of massage provided.
Among some of the commonly cited potential benefits of massage include the following points –
- Relief of headaches
- Muscle relaxation
- Rehabilitation for sports injuries
- Reduction of anxiety
- Many more
When trying to decide whether or not to pursue massage therapy as a treatment, it will be wise to speak with your chiropractor about the potential benefits in your case. While massage is often a good choice, it is not necessarily the right option for all patients. By carefully thinking about your needs, it will be possible to determine if massage therapy is a logical step.
Massage as Part of Your Care
If you are already planning to visit a chiropractor for treatment of a specific injury or pain you are experiencing, it may be a natural fit to add chiropractic massage therapy to your treatment. Often, massage is able to work together with other treatments in order to form a comprehensive plan. Rather than relying on just one form of treatment in order to provide the relief you are looking for, we can use a wide-ranging plan to lead to positive outcomes.
So, why would you wind up receiving massage therapy as part of your overall care? There could be any number of reasons. Often, patients who have been through a car accident will use massage as part of their rehabilitation. Or, those who have suffered a recent sports injury will take advantage of massage as they try to get their body back on track. Additionally, massage may be recommended for those with low back pain, arthritis, or many other issues. The reasons for using massage are extremely diverse, but the goal is always the same – to move you closer to your health goals.
The Benefit of Relaxation
When massage therapy is performed in a chiropractic office, it is typically offered with a specific treatment in mind. For instance, as mentioned above, you could use massage as part of your rehab plan when coming back from a sports injury. This is different than a massage you may receive at a salon, for instance, which would be focused on relaxation first and foremost.
With that said, it is still possible to enjoy some of the relaxation benefits of massage while being treated at the same time. The experience of having your muscles massaged is likely to help you relax, and you may notice lowered levels of tension and anxiety. Often, patients will look forward to their massage visits, simply because they like the way their body feels once the massage is completed. This is why chiropractic massage therapy is so popular with so many people – it can work toward a specific health goal while also providing an enjoyable experience overall. If you have not yet experienced chiropractic massage for yourself, ask during your next visit for more information on this type of treatment.
