Massage Therapy: How It Fits into Your Treatment Plan
Combining massage therapy and chiropractic adjustments is a holistic approach that gives you better and faster results, whether it’s being used for treating chronic pain or enhancing your wellness. Massage therapy manipulates the soft tissues like muscles and tendons, while chiropractic adjustments target the body’s hard tissue like the spinal joints.

How Massage Therapy Helps Chiropractic Treatment
Chiropractic adjustments align your joints to alleviate pain and inflammation, improve your mobility and range of motion, and the function of your central nervous system. Massage therapy relaxes the muscles to relieve inflammation and pain. Combined with chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy relieves pain and tension, improves blood circulation, and makes the central nervous system more effective in passing and receiving messages. Massage therapy can be incorporated before, during, or after chiropractic adjustments.
Relaxation to Relieve Anxiety and Muscle Tension before Adjustments
Chiropractors often recommend massage therapy before any chiropractic adjustments to help you relax and relieve any muscle tension you may have. When relaxed, you are less anxious and your body is more receptive to any chiropractic adjustment. Massage therapy before chiropractic adjustments makes the adjustments more comfortable and effective.
Massage Therapy Enhances the Benefits of Chiropractic Treatment
Chiropractic adjustments performed while muscles are relaxed last longer than those performed on bodies full of muscle tension. Tight muscles tend to pull the aligned joints out of alignment within no time after a chiropractic adjustment. That is why chiropractors prefer to work with relaxed muscles. Massage therapy combined with chiropractic adjustments offer long-lasting pain relief.
Massage therapy works with chiropractic adjustments to improve your emotional well-being, the range of motion in your limbs, working of your immune system, muscle strength, and body functionality.
