What is Chiropractic Massage Therapy?
Chiropractic massage therapy is soft tissue manipulation performed by a licensed professional in a relaxing, therapeutic environment. This all-natural therapy helps to loosen muscles and increase flexibility. Massage therapy combines seamlessly with chiropractic care because of the two work towards the same goals. Our chiropractors will often prescribe massage sessions before a chiropractic adjustment. Massage therapy leaves the muscles relaxed and limber. The chiropractic adjustment may be easier and more comfortable after a massage session.
What are the Benefits of Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy can address a wide range of health conditions all over the body. In addition to easing low back, shoulder, and neck pain, massage therapy can improve your range of motion. Massage therapy can also help to increase lymphatic flow, which aids the immune system. It can also be effective in exercising weak or atrophied muscles. In addition to the many physical benefits, massage therapy can improve your mental health by decreasing anxiety, improving sleep quality, and improving concentration.
How Often Should I Have Massage Therapy?
Our chiropractors will help you determine how often you should receive massage therapy, based on your specific needs. Massage therapy plays an important role in self-care and many believe it should be received regularly. Weekly or biweekly massage therapy can help to control your pain.
Is Massage Covered by Insurance?
In many cases, massage which is used to address medical issues is covered by health insurance policies. At Dunn Chiropractic, we are happy to help you understand your health insurance plan and determine if you are covered for chiropractic massage therapy.
