"Ahhhh…" is music to the massage therapist's ear!
Massage therapy is usually thought of for relaxation, but massage therapy can be so much more when combined with chiropractic. Massage therapy offered in the chiropractic office seeks the "Ahhhh…" as well as more specific soft tissue and muscle work to release tightness and allow the adjustment's realignment of bones and its subsequent pain relief to last longer. Massage therapy goes hand-in-hand with the Cox Technic protocols.
What is Massage Therapy?
Complementary to chiropractic Cox Technic Flexion Distraction and Decompression spinal manipulation, massage therapy is the manual manipulation of the body's soft tissue structures through a variety of techniques ranging from relaxing to rehabilitative. Soft tissues include muscle, skin, tendons, fascia, ligaments and joint capsules. These are often involved when the spine and extremities are in pain.
With massage therapy, function, flexibility and overall circulation of the soft tissues increase.
