If you’re constantly tense or suffering joint and muscle pain, the team at La Costa Chiropractic & Wellness in Carlsbad, CA, offers massage therapy and various other methods to help.
Benefits of Therapeutic Massage
When you’re suffering from pain, chiropractors can offer various techniques to both reduce symptoms and correct their causes. One of these techniques is massage therapy. Though relaxation is one benefit of such a technique, it can be used to treat a variety of issues. In the guide below, the team at La Costa Chiropractic & Wellness of Carlsbad, CA, shares the benefits you can receive through chiropractic massage.
Reduction in Tension
Muscle tension can lead to various issues. In addition to tension headaches, it can put strain on the spinal column or any other joint, leading to misalignment. It can also make movement difficult. However, massage therapy can break up tension and prevent such issues.
Improved Blood Circulation
Tension can also block the blood from flowing freely. This can be a problem for every organ of the body, as they all need proper blood flow to function properly and rid the body of waste. Chiropractic massage can help break up these troubled areas, allowing for better blood flow.
Improved Range of Motion
Massage therapy can also help you move further and with less resistance. As tension and adhesions are broken up, restrictions that limit mobility are removed. Once you can move more freely, blood can circulate even more, allowing for further healing and maintaining health.
Massage is typically combined with other techniques, such as adjustments, to relieve pain and discomfort due to the following and more:
- Low back pain
- Upper back pain
- Headaches and migraines
- Joint pain
- Trigger points and adhesions
- Shoulder pain
Improved Sleep and Immunity
The body needs restful sleep to stay healthy and recover. However, it can be difficult to achieve restful sleep when you’re in pain, when you’re tense, or if your blood isn’t flowing properly. Massage therapy helps address all of these issues, as well as release hormones that help you relax. The result is better quality sleep and a healthier immune system.
