Chiropractic massage is an excellent method for improving overall health and musculoskeletal efficiency. Massage has a number of beneficial effects on the body and the mind. Some of these include removal of toxins that can build up in the muscles of the body, increased circulation, and increased flexibility in not only the muscles, but also the connective tissue within the body.
Massage also can help with muscle spasms as well as soft tissue injuries. Increasing the movement and reducing the overall recovery time by helping the body in the healing process. In addition, consistent massage has been known to increase balance.
Chiropractic Massage has proven to assist in the healing of a large number of conditions including back pain, surgery recovery, eating and sleep disorders as well as high blood pressure and diabetes among others.
Over the years scar tissue builds up in the muscles therefore forming knots. The knots need to be released. These knots will decrease the range of motion of the muscle or restrict the motion of that certain spinal segment they are attached to. A loss of motion of the segment will oocur. This will aid in the inflammation process of that area and mimic a "pinched nerve" or give acheness of the effected muscles. Adjustments will even hold for a longer period of time between visits. So it is very beneficial to reduce muscular spasms before the adjustment of that segment.
