Massage Therapy and Chiropractic Care Work Together
When your back, neck, or joints are hurting, you know it is time to call a chiropractor. But did you know some chiropractors also offer massage therapy? At Capitol Rehab of Crofton, we offer a variety of services to ensure your body is healed and free from pain. Let’s look at how we use massage therapy combined with chiropractic care to provide a complete wellness plan.
Whether you have been in an accident, suffered an injury, or noticed pain building up over time, we encourage you to make an appointment with our team. We will discuss your symptoms and work through a few exercises to see what the problem could be and how we can help. We will likely recommend routine chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, some time in physical therapy, or stretches to do at home. Our treatment plans are customized to each patient to provide pain relief and support the recovery process.
Your Time with Us
The doctor's recommended treatment plan will likely start with regular appointments for adjustments. These adjustments realign the bones and provide quick relief from pain. Physical therapy may be recommended to strengthen the muscles that surround the target area to prevent the pain from returning. Massage therapy is used to relax and restore the health of the tissues and muscles throughout your body.
Over time, your body's tissues and muscles can overcompensate for a misaligned bone. For example, if one of your hips is not properly aligned, the muscles surrounding it will work overtime to compensate, which leads to your pain. The adjustments will put that hip back where it is supposed to be. Physical therapy will strengthen the tissues and muscles around the hip. Massage therapy will help those tissues and muscles relax after a hard workout.
It’s Not Just for Self-Care
Although many people think of massages as a way to relax during stressful times, massage therapy with a chiropractor is a little different. It will still be relaxing, but it will also be more targeted to your specific areas of pain and administered to help your body heal. Adjustments and physical therapy are great ways to correct and strengthen your body, but massages are just as important for recovery.
