Why Massage Therapy and Chiropractic Care Go Together so Well

Written By OptiLux Wellness Center on July 29, 2021

Massage therapy At Optilux Wellness Center in New Kensington, we offer both chiropractic care and massage for your convenience and full health benefit. While both forms of healthcare are great on their own, they help you get and stay healthy when paired together. Here’s how...

Benefits of Pairing Massage With Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic aims to put everything back in place and establish balance so the body can heal itself and function properly. Massage aims to relax the body and improve blood flow. Both practices work to help your body function and perform better while reducing and/or eliminating the root cause of your pain, too.

Due to the relaxing nature of massage, there are instances where it’s ideal to see one of our massage therapists before we do any kind of chiropractic care on you. In most cases, it’s because of super tight muscles. Said muscles will yoink all our hard work right back into the problematic position. Massage can prime your muscles, tendons and ligaments to accept spinal manipulations and joint work. 

So if you’re stiff in the shoulders from poor posture at your desk job, massage can come in and work out the knots, and then chiropractic can adjust your spine and ease related muscles into place so you sit straighter.

Regardless of whether you get chiropractic or massage first, massage is shown to amplify the benefits of chiropractic care. Your body responds better, helps adjustments hold longer, and you can recover faster from injury thanks to much better blood blow. 

Both chiropractic and massage are drug-free, non-invasive ways of helping you achieve optimal health and wellness, manage pain, and address the root cause of your symptoms. Our chiropractors will perform a thorough evaluation and guide you through whether you’d benefit most from massage before or after treatment.
