Massage therapy isn’t reserved solely for those with pain in their backs or necks. Rather, it can help tackle a range of ailments, from headaches to feeling generally under the weather. 

And as a drug-free, non-invasive treatment that’s proven to be highly effective, it might remove your need for painkillers and surgery – both of which come with a list of potentially detrimental side effects. 

This revered technique can also be used alongside other chiropractic techniques to eradicate your pain and improve your overall wellbeing. 

What Can You Expect from Massage Therapy? 

With growing evidence highlighting the effectiveness of this technique, it’s not hard to see why it’s become revered among many health care experts. 

For example, one research project examined the benefits of massage for those with back pain, discovering that there were a whole host of benefits and not just alleviating pain. 

One of the key advantages is how it boosts your body’s circulation. This helps speed up how quickly your body recovers because your tissues and muscles are being supplied with the essential nutrients they need to heal. Those who have injured their soft tissues playing sports or have tender points will benefit immeasurably from this, for example. 

It also helps improve flexibility while lowering tension and pain in the muscles – which, again, helps the recovery process. There’s also the advantageous release of endorphins it induces which is hugely beneficial in improving your mood and reducing anxiety and depression – something many will struggle with when they have ongoing aches and pains that cause them endless discomfort.

When combined, this provides you with the best possible chance of a speedy recovery. 

What Are the Other Benefits? 

Massage and other chiropractic techniques can also: 

  • Reduce stress
  • Calm your mind
  • Lower your blood pressure
  • Release toxins from your body
  • Remove scar tissue
  • Strengthen your immune system
  • Improve how well you sleep 

That’s why chiropractic is often used to treat a number of conditions, including: 

  • Torticollis
  • Whiplash
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Tendon and muscle tears
  • Sciatica
  • Scoliosis
  • Myofascial pain
  • Thoracic outlet syndrome
  • Tension headaches
  • Aches and pains that arise during pregnancy
  • Muscle injuries

The type of treatment that’s recommended will depend on your unique symptoms and medical history – something your chiropractor in Shallotte will discuss with you during your initial consultation. 

Once determined, they’ll put together a complementary program that combines massage therapy with other key chiropractic techniques, providing you with the most effective, natural, drug-free approach to your health.
