Chiropractic care is not limited to just the skeletal structure of the body. It also addresses problems within the connective tissue and the muscles that have a direct impact on how the skeletal structure functions. Chiropractic care brings the body back into sync, lining up the skeletal structure, increasing mobility by supporting the connective tissue and strengthening the muscles to help improve mobility and increase stamina. Using chiropractic care supports the entire body and helps the healing process move along more quickly and efficiently.
Chiropractic care and massage therapy can be used together as complementary treatment options. While the chiropractic adjustment shifts the bones and allows them to return to their original position. Deep tissue massage manipulates the soft tissues of the muscles, releasing toxins and reintroducing an increase in blood flow. As more blood rushes into the area, fresh oxygen and nutrients are delivered to the cells, while the wastes are carried away. Massage therapy also strengthens the tissues, allowing them to be more supportive of the chiropractic adjustments that have been performed.
Chiropractic care can be used in conjunction with many different modalities. Acupuncture, deep tissue massage therapy, cranial sacral therapy, and Reiki all work to support the structural changes that occur during a chiropractic adjustment. Each treatment method offers a unique set of benefits that can help in many different situations. Deep tissue massage and Reiki are ideal for sports injuries where soft tissue damage is common. Cranial sacral and chiropractic adjustments work quite well for injuries that were sustained in auto accidents or falls. While chiropractic care is quite effective on its own, its benefits are enhanced when combined with other modalities that expand the treatment plan.
