Getting a massage is one of the most relaxing things you can schedule for yourself. It’s also one of the healthiest. The right massage, delivered by a pair of well-trained hands, offers a whole host of benefits for your physical, mental, and emotional health. These benefits are increased when the massage is integrated with chiropractic treatment. If you live in Pontiac, Bloomfield, or the surrounding communities, contact Joslyn Chiropractic Center for our chiropractic massage therapy.
This is one of the most well-known benefits of chiropractic massage for good reason. A back that’s thrown out of alignment is seriously painful. The injuries and muscle weakness that often underlie this misalignment are also uncomfortable. Chiropractic adjustments tackle this problem on a skeletal level, while a massage handles the muscular part of the issue.
Stress manifests in many ways, from irritability to depression to physical tension. In fact, for many people, the main way they experience stress is on a physical level. They may experience knots in the upper back, hunched shoulders, and painful tension in the neck. Fortunately, this physical process runs in both directions. Just as stress can lead to back pain, a back massage can relieve long-carried stress.
The physical contact of a good massage boosts blood circulation on the surface level, just below the skin. More vigorous massages and adjustments can also boost circulation deep inside the muscles and joints. Finally, blood isn’t the only fluid circulating through the body. Many forms of massage can also improve lymphatic flow and drainage.
If you’ve suffered from an injury, a massage can speed your healing in several ways. First of all, there is the improved circulation we discussed above. Chiropractic massages also reduce painful inflammation and rebalance your muscles and spine. This makes it easier and more comfortable for you to do stretches and exercises to rehabilitate after an injury.
A Stronger Immune System
Pain, inflammation, stress, and restricted circulation all depress your immune system. Your body becomes so overwhelmed dealing with those issues that it is less able to defend itself. Reducing the strain you’re under frees up your physical resources. A well-balanced and pain-free body is much more able to fight off an infection or illness.
