When you are in pain, you look for relief in any form you can find. When it is your back or legs that are hurting your search for relief is often intensified. While all pain is disturbing the pain felt in the back and legs is often the most bothersome because every movement you make involves using one or the other and most often both. This area can be difficult to treat due to the affected area being deep within the body protected by layers of muscle and tissue. For this reason, deep tissue massage is recommended to prime your chiropractic treatment.
Chiropractic treatment involves the realignment of your bones in order to correct the issues that are causing your back and leg pain. While this is beneficial, your pain is not always caused by the misalignment alone. The muscles that protect and drive the back and legs are continuously being worked and can even cause part of your misalignment. By pairing deep tissue massage with your chiropractic treatment, you are able to achieve a more thorough treatment of the problem area that will allow both treatments to achieve more.
If you’ve ever had a massage, you are aware that they are relaxing to your entire body. When your muscles are relaxed your whole body becomes more flexible and pliable. This flexibility will benefit your chiropractic treatment by making the adjustments more comfortable for you. Also, when you are relaxed, it is often easier to make the alignments your body needs. Massage therapy can benefit your healing process when performed before and after your chiropractic treatment. Deep tissue massages before your treatment will help to loosen the area to be worked on. An aromatherapy massage after your treatment will take away any stress from your treatment, allowing you to leave relaxed and revitalized at the same time.
