Chiropractic Care and Massage Therapy
What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractors use hands-on care and other alternative treatments to properly align the body's musculoskeletal structure without surgery or medication. Chiropractic treatment is used to restore the mobility of joints restricted by injury, which may be caused by a traumatic event such as falling, or repetitive stress, such as a sports or occupational injury. In general, it is used as alternative pain relief for muscles, joints, bones, and tissue, including ligaments, tendons and cartilage.
Massage has been practiced for thousands of years. Today, there is a wide variety of massage types, ranging in pressure, movements, and techniques. Before you decide what type of massage is best for you, consider what you want from your massage. Is it relaxation? Symptom relief? Stress relief? Let your massage therapist know what you are looking for from your massage.
