Chiropractic Versus Massage

One of the main topics of questions we have here at the office is about massages.  Should I get a Massage? Should I get chiropractic instead? Should I get massage with chiropractic? Should a massage come before chiropractic? Or chiropractic before the massage? What we recommend is very simple. Massage first, followed by chiropractic care. The idea behind it is very simple.

A massage will help you get nice and relaxed. All the muscles will be relaxed and easier to adjust. The adjustment will hold a lot longer as the muscles will no longer pull on any of your joints. Nor will it create any tension inside your body which will give you a longer lasting effect.

Massage not only relieves stress and tension, it can aid in your recovery when used in conjunction with chiropractic treatments. Here are some of the many benefits massage therapy offers:

  • Allows your body to relax and rejuvenate
  • Reduces muscle tension, stiffness and pain
  • Improves energy, concentration and productivity
  • Increases circulation, range of motion and flexibility
  • Decreases toxic cortisol levels
  • Alleviates symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression
