Massage Therapy and Chiropractic Care in Duluth, GA
Combining massage therapy with chiropractic care can help you heal faster.
Spinal adjustments on their own are a powerful form of treatment. However, your Duluth, GA chiropractor will likely recommend other therapies in conjunction with adjustments. Massage is one such therapy.
Massage therapy is an integral part of chiropractic care. Together, they can help your body heal and perform optimally.
Why Combine Massage Therapy with Chiropractic Care?
When your spine is out of alignment, it creates tension, which leads to pain.
Unfortunately, there are times when simply adjusting the spine won’t work. The muscles can become so tight that it’s difficult to make adjustments.
Even when your Duluth, GA chiropractor successfully adjusts your spine, you’re still left with tight, sore muscles. Such a situation can lead to more pressure on the spine, tendons, ligaments, and joints.
Additionally, muscle tightness can lead to inflexibility, causing reduced range of motion and mobility.
A massage therapist can perform a variety of techniques to:
- Reduce muscle tension
- Promote full-body relaxation
- Improve flexibility and range of motion
- Promote better lymphatic flow, leading to better drainage and toxin removal
Therapeutic Massage Treatment Types
At Duluth Chiropractic and Wellness Center, our therapist uses several massage therapy techniques to ease your pain and encourage wellness.
Essential oils have healing properties. When mixed with a carrier oil, the oils will soothe sore muscles, while the scent will help relax and promote a sense of well-being.
Deep Tissue Massage
Using long, slow strokes, your therapist will work out tension, especially in the deeper layers of muscle tissue.
Certain areas of the foot correspond to organs, systems, and tissues of the body. If you’re struggling with lower back pain, for instance, your massage therapist can use massage and pressure point therapy on your foot (as well as massaging your back) for even deeper healing.
Massage therapy is essential for athletes. Reducing muscle tension keeps them flexible, allowing the athlete to perform at their best. Because of this, massage can also reduce the risk of injury.
Need to relax? Then, you need Swedish massage therapy. Your therapist uses long, gliding strokes that promote the flow of blood to your heart and muscle relaxation.
Tension Zone Massage
Do you carry your stress in your neck and shoulders? You need Tension Zone massage therapy. The goal is to release muscle tension in the upper body focusing on trigger points.
