Holistic Chiropractic Care
Integrating Remedial Massage with Chiropractic care offers a practical and holistic strategy to prevent and correct subluxations, which can minimise associated pains. Many Chiropractors endorse the idea that treating soft tissues, such as muscles, can play a crucial role in maintaining body alignment. Massage or trigger point therapy is sometimes employed by the chiropractor as preparation for adjustments, providing relief to surrounding musculature and enhancing the effectiveness of the overall treatment.
Preparation for Adjustments
Before your Chiropractic adjustment visit, a massage in targeted areas can alleviate tension and warm soft tissues, ensuring a smoother adjustment process. A general massage, ranging from 30 minutes to an hour, not only prepares the immediate area of concern but also encourages overall relaxation, enhancing receptiveness to manual adjustments.
Following an adjustment, incorporating massage can contribute to further relaxation, aiding recovery. This dual approach recognises the interconnectedness of musculoskeletal health and the importance of a well-balanced system.
