Understanding Therapeutic Massage & Chiropractic Care

Written By Martinez Chiropractic Center on February 5, 2018

How much massage time do you get in your life? If you’re like most people, the answer is not enough. Not only are massages an ideal way to relax, but they can also provide significant benefits for the health of your back and spine. Specifically, therapeutic massage is a non-invasive way to reduce chronic back pain and relax your muscles in the process. Even better, the procedure can increase the production of ‘feel good chemicals’ in your back to encourage the natural healing process. 

For those in Miami, FL, the Martinez Chiropractic Center is the ideal place to try therapeutic massage for yourself. Trust us; one appointment is all you need to experience the benefits for yourself. 

What is Therapeutic Massage?

Similar in some ways to regular massages, therapeutic massage has a broader focus on bringing your body to better health and improving how you feel on a daily level. Several forms of massage therapy target specific problems in your body. As an example, Shiatsu massage focuses on specific trigger points in your body that are causing pain or tension, and Swedish massage relies on gentle kneading and long strokes to relieve muscle tensions throughout your body. 

In this way, the overall focus of therapeutic massage is to improve your body’s health, not just relax you. 

The Benefits of Therapeutic Massage

Even a few sessions of therapeutic massage is enough to start improving your health. Considered a widely accepted treatment for chronic back pain, circulation issues, and numerous other physical problems, therapeutic massage can also help you in the following ways: 

  • Better circulation and blood flow to soothe sore muscles.
  • Less muscle tension
  • Increased flexibility
  • Reduced pain from tight muscles
  • Better endorphin production to combat anxiety and depression

In many cases, your chiropractor will recommend adding therapeutic massage to your traditional treatment plan so that the two procedures can complement each other. This helps your body recover faster while keeping your muscles more relaxed in the process.
