Chiropractic Care and Massage Therapy Minneapolis MN

Chiropractors work to improve the function of bones and joints, while massage therapists aim to improve muscles. As treatment modalities, they go hand in hand. Massage therapy is often suggested along with chiropractic care. Depending on your condition the doctor will advise if it may be more beneficial before or after a manual adjustment. The two modalities working together can produce more effective, lasting results, and quicken the healing time for the patient. Chiropractic care and massage therapy work so well together because they both share a holistic goal: overall health and well-being, not just a "quick fix" with surgery or medications.

When chiropractic care and massage therapy are used together, a synergy happens that is often far more effective than either approach by itself.

A massage session is a great way to help you relax after a long day, but that's not all. Massage is no longer just in luxury spas and health clubs. Massage therapy has proven to have a variety of overall benefits. Today, massage therapy is accessible in businesses, clinics, and hospitals. If you have never tried massage, now is a great time to learn how it can improve your health.

What is Massage?

Massage is known as pressing, rubbing, and manipulating your muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Massage therapists normally use their hands and fingers for massage, but often times they will use their forearms, elbows or other specialized instruments for increased pressure. Depending on your comfort level, massage can consist of a light stroking to deep tissue pressure.

Some common forms of massage include:

Swedish Massage - A light form of massage using long strokes, kneading, broad circular motions, vibration, and tapping focusing on the superficial layers of the muscle.

Deep Tissue Massage – A slower form of massage that uses more forceful motions to reach the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. This type of massage is normally used with patients to help with muscle damage developed by injuries.

Sports Massage - Much like Swedish massage, but it is tailored to people who participate in sports activities to help prevent or treat injuries.

Trigger Point Massage - Focuses on the regions of your body that have tight muscle fibers that can develop in your muscles after injury or exercise.
