Chiropractic and Massage Eases Sore Muscles

By Debra Rodzinak

Anyone who has ever had sore muscles knows the sweet relief of a good massage.  However, by combining chiropractic and massage therapy, recovery time can be sped up.  Many people use both massage and chiropractic to ease back pain, depression, insomnia, and osteoarthritis.

A combination of these two therapies can help to improve overall mobility and reduce aches and pain.  These two effective therapies can work together to help patients maintain “a more complete and effective system of health care.”

Chiropractic

Recent studies have shown that chiropractic doctors are the third-largest group of healthcare providers in the country -- only physicians and dentists rank higher.

By focusing on therapies that target the nervous and musculoskeletal system, the hard tissues of the spine and joints are addressed.  Many patients prefer chiropractic treatments due to the drug-free approach used.  Ailments such as headaches, back pain, neck pain, arm and leg joint problems, and sore muscles can be addressed with chiropractic.

Chiropractors use gentle spinal manipulation or adjustments to restore or increase joint mobility.  A limited range of motion can lead to poor posture and stiff and painful joints.  By properly aligning the spine and joints, many patients are able to increase their range of motion and find pain relief.

Massage Therapy

With the increase in the number of people who are seeking alternative forms of therapy for their aches and pains, many massage therapy clinics are appearing all over the country.  This increase in demand and increase in clinics means that more and more people are able to afford what once was looked at as a luxury service. 

According to a 2009 survey by the American Massage Therapy Association, “… 32 percent, (of patients with) medical reasons tied this year with stress reduction as a top reason consumers seek massage therapy.”

Since massage therapy focuses on the soft tissues of the body, whereas chiropractic focuses on the hard tissues, they make a nice complement to each other when used together to treat sore muscles.  Pain reduction and injury prevention are two of the added benefits to this dynamic duo.  When tension surrounding joints is lessened, increased mobility to the joints is seen and pain reduction is realized.

If you suffer from sore muscles or limited mobility due to stiff joints, come by The Joint for a gentle spinal adjustment.  With no pesky insurance forms to fill out or appointment times to remember, a trip to The Joint can put you on the road to muscles that are less sore and overall increased wellness.
