In addition to chiropractic care, we recommend massage therapy. Massage therapy can be utilized before or after an adjustment on the same day. When the bones in your back are misaligned this causes pressure on your nervous system which results in muscle spasms. Chiropractic adjustments take care of part of that problem, but more work is needed when the muscles develop adhesions. Neuromuscular massage works to release these adhesions.
Benefits of chiropractic and massage therapy together are:
• Improved range of motion
• Decreased pain
• Symptoms heal faster (than with either therapy alone)
• Improvements last longer
• Improved immunity
We do not recommend massage during the first trimester of pregnancy.
