Let’s go over a few examples of why massage and chiropractic are so intertwined:
- It’s important to keep in mind that massage and chiropractic both deal with components of the body’s skeletal system in a complementary manner. Chiropractors work with the nervous system, including the alignment of the vertebral column in addition to other joints in the body. On the other hand, Hillsboro massage therapists primarily deal with the musculoskeletal system. Because chiropractic is more focused on the nervous and skeletal systems, and massage therapy is more focused on the muscular and skeletal systems, massage therapy can actually extend the benefits for patients after they receive a chiropractic adjustment.
- Massage is either before or after adjustment helps decrease muscle tension and increases flexibility, meaning there are longer sustained benefits post-adjustment.
- Along those same lines, a chiropractic adjustment can make the benefits of a massage last longer. Patients who get massage without an adjustment often experience just temporary relief of systems, whereas those who combine the two have better results.
Other advantages to massage include a positive effect on stress hormone levels. Studies have shown that after a massage, the reduction of stress hormones that are circulating through the body is significant when compared to levels before massage. Massage has been shown to provide a positive impact on the circulatory system as well, which impacts nearly every other system in the body.
Separately, chiropractic treatment and massage therapy provide tremendous benefits. But together, they are even better. Call HealthSource today to make schedule a massage in Hillsboro.
I visited HealthSource of Hillsboro’s Doctor Anthony Marasco, and I am very impressed.
Many times in the past I would come out of a session in pain from the work of the Chiropractor, but not with Dr. Marasco. I could feel the positive results immediately and the after treatment pain was so minimal that it’s not even worth mentioning.
I feel so much better and I plan to continue to use Dr. Marasco and his staff.
I highly recommend this Doctor.
Plus he’s got a great personality and makes me feel at ease.
