Massage Complements Chiropractic Care:
Therapeutic Massage is one of the best compliments to chiropractic care. Because muscles are attached to bones and joints it is very important for them to be relaxed and stretched to aid in adjustments to the skeletal system. Proper alignment helps to ensure the free flow of nerve impulses and circulation of blood and lymph.
Some Benefits of Massage with Chiropractic Care:
--Helps prepare the body for better adjustments
--It increases the effectiveness of treatments
--Relieves muscle tension and pain
--Helps prevent future pain and injuries
--Helps you relax overall and become more receptive to the adjustments needed
I highly recommend regular massage with chiropractic care. If your chiropractor does not provide massage therapy in his/her office then consider getting 30 min massage sessions on the areas needed along with your adjustments. If you receive massage but need a chiropractor I highly recommend either of the offices I work at.
Most insurance companies do cover chiropractic care in some form and many cover massage therapy as well for an alternative therapy. In most cases you would just pay your co-pay while other plans will pay a percentage of the cost. If you have good insurance then take advantage of it and improve your health. Although I don't bill insurance companies personally I do offer 30 minute sessions for only $30.
