For many, over the counter pain medication is their first step in pain reduction. However, a more effective approach towards reducing aches and pains is by treating it at the source. Chiropractic massages are a method of healing that can help improve your overall well being in the long term while also avoiding the negative side effects associated with medication. Chiropractic massage treatments can address a variety of musculoskeletal issues and in particular, chronic back pain.
Many people experience chronic back pain for a variety of reasons including:
- Weak muscle tone
Dr. Brett Pastuch, a chiropractor in Hicksville at Island Chiropractic can help diminish or even eliminate persistent back pain problems by realigning the spine and encouraging blood flow through various chiropractic techniques.
Below are some of the significant benefits of a chiropractic massage.
- Pain Management
Chiropractic massages help manage pain by breaking up scar tissue and promoting proper circulation.
- Increase in Range of Motion
A chiropractic massage will help your muscles expel built-up lactic acid that may be the source of muscle stiffness resulting in increased mobility.
Massage is the perfect compliment to a chiropractic adjustment, often providing synergistic results. Because chiropractic adjustments predominantly work with the skeletal components of the spine and chiropractic massage focuses on the soft tissues surrounding it, working both areas will provide an even more effective adjustment as the muscles and ligaments will be more loose and responsive.
