For centuries, massage therapy has been one of the most enjoyable ways to find relief from aches and pains or simply relax after a stressful week.
However, there is a big difference between a hot stone massage you get from your local health spa and a medical massage that is aimed toward treating uncomfortable symptoms.
Traditional medicine typically uses a combination of OTC medications, physical therapy, or even surgery to treat pain. But medical massage therapy works hand-in-hand with traditional chiropractic care to provide you with effective, lasting relief.
All massages work wonders at stretching out soft tissues, improving blood flow, and providing a feeling of gentle relaxation. But therapeutic massage is a world apart from your average spa treatment!
At a spa, massage is simply a way to relax your body and mind. But a therapeutic massage focuses on treating underlying injuries and health conditions to provide healing from the inside out.
At Lakes Chiropractic & Wellness, our licensed massage therapists are trained in a wide variety of massage techniques to treat a wide variety of conditions–from musculoskeletal chronic pain and stiffness, to sports injuries to headaches and even TMJ.
Medical massage–much like chiropractic adjustments–are not just for the spine.
There are many different types of massage, each one specifically designed to address a specific health concern.
Chances are, if you’re feeling pain, there’s a massage for that!
Chiropractic massage can be helpful for treating the following conditions:
If you’ve only looked at massage as an occasional splurge, it’s time to think outside the spa!
Because the goal is to treat pain at its source, medical massage therapy is the best form of “self care” there is. Whether you suffer from stiff joints, car accident pain, or age-related complaints, Lakes Chiropractic and Wellness can help you get back to feeling your best.
There’s nothing “normal” about pain. If you’ve been living with symptoms of discomfort, schedule an appointment at our state-of-the-art Land O’Lakes office to see how medical massage therapy can help.
