How Chiropractic and Massage Therapy Work in Synergy

patient massageAre you dealing with nagging aches and pains? Tired of resorting to OTC medication to relieve your discomfort? Combining chiropractic adjustments with massage therapy can provide powerful relief by attacking pain from multiple angles. Here’s how these two modalities at Dalhousie Family Chiropractic & Massage team up to ease your discomfort.

The Chiropractic Focus

Chiropractic concentrates on the spine, skeletal structure, and nervous system. Through precise adjustments, to correct misalignments, restore proper joint motion, and reduce nerve interference. This approach helps alleviate pain, improve range of motion, and promote overall spinal health.

Massage Therapy Focus

Massage therapists, on the other hand, target the soft tissues, including muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Our RMTs use various techniques like trigger point therapy, deep tissue, neuromuscular therapy, and ART (stretching) to break up painful knots, increase blood flow, and restore flexibility to tight, inflamed areas.

The Synergistic Effect

Chiropractic and massage work synergistically for superior pain relief and results. Massage relaxes tense joint muscles that can make joints harder to realign.

Conversely, an adjustment helps muscles function better by removing nerve interference and improving joint mobility. The two therapies create a positive cycle that enhances the benefits of each approach.

When to Use Both Therapies

For many chronic pain conditions, combining chiropractic and massage is ideal, including:

  • Headaches/migraines
  • Neck and shoulder pain
  • Low back pain
  • Nerve pain/sciatica
  • Limited range of motion
Your chiropractor and RMT will work together to create a custom-tailored treatment plan to address your specific areas of pain and restricted mobility.
