Providing Massage Therapy Alongside Spinal Adjustment

Massage therapy increases the benefit of spinal adjustment

When it comes to helping people improve their wellbeing, we believe the best way is to stay natural. That is why we work with primary care providers to provide you with another, all-natural dimension to your healthcare. We know that movement gives life- so, to stay moving is to stay feeling your best. Everything we do at our office in Hackensack is designed to keep you moving as best you can with your given set of conditions. Whether you are a top-of-the-pile athlete, or someone living with a degenerative spinal condition, there is always room for improvement. Spinal adjustments help our patients to improve the range of motion in their spinal joints, thereby increasing overall mobility. But poor range of motion often results from tissue damage, which means that improving mobility also includes treating the soft tisseus which support your spine. That is why we integrate massage therapy modalities within the greater framework of our chiropractic care.

You just got done with a particuarly grueling workout

Your muscles are responding the way you expected them to: by being sore. You know this one is going to require a substantial period of rest, maybe even an ice pack.

Soreness, swelling and inflammation can be dealt with usually natural methods of pain management, but make sure to listen to your body if it is telling you something is wrong. In more extreme cases, DOMS can be an indicator of permanent muscle damage. This blog is designed to help you know when to worry about pain after exercise.
