Scottsdale Chiropractic and Massage Therapy: A Healthy Combination
If you are a firm believer in the power of chiropractic adjustment but have not yet tried massage therapy, then you have an exciting new discovery in store. Our Scottsdale chiropractor often prescribes massage as a natural complement to chiropractic treatment for a variety of conditions. Let us examine four ways in which our Scottsdale massage therapy supports chiropractic care:
Circulatory and immune system support – Just as our Scottsdale chiropractor can perform spinal adjustments that improve overall physical function, helping the body cure itself more quickly and stand guard against future disease, Scottsdale massage stimulates the flow of blood and lymph, optimizing your circulatory and immune systems. Together, these two modalities can go a long way toward making your body work better.
Pain relief – Scottsdale neck pain, back pain, headaches, and limb pain can all benefit from a combination of chiropractic treatment and massage. Deep tissue massage, in particular, can help release painful tension within the connective tissues and deeper muscle groups. Even a light Swedish massage can help muscles unload inflammatory substances that cause pain.
Athletic healing and performance – Sports massage helps countless athletes enjoy higher levels of performance and recover more quickly from sports injuries, especially in conjunction with adjustments from Dr. Daniel P. Secrest, DC. This form of Scottsdale massage therapy focuses on the parts of the body most prone to overuse or strain.
Workplace wellness – Chiropractic and massage therapy can also work together to help you maintain your health and productivity in the workplace. While periodic evaluations and spinal adjustments ensure that your alignment remains sound, quick massage techniques such as chair massage can help you keep your upper body limber and relaxed — a great way to ward off neck pain.
