The Importance of Massage Therapy
Massage therapy is an effective treatment that helps restore patient circulation, improve range of motion, reduce muscle stiffness and speed the healing process. The restorative, relaxing effects of massage therapy can benefit patients experiencing a variety of painful conditions and injuries, from whiplash to depression. Receiving massage therapy in combination with spinal adjustment and other chiropractic techniques can help improve the overall health of the patient, and can prevent future injuries. At Fruitport Chiropractic Center we offer massage therapy to soothe patients in their mind, body and spirit.
This full body relaxation massage uses long gliding strokes as well as deep kneading and stretching techniques. Swedish massage has long been hailed as an effective means for treating depression and anxiety disorders. During cold and flu season, Swedish massage can reduce toxins in the body and boost the immune system. Swedish massage also helps patients manage chronic pain.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage specifically targets knots in the muscles. This technique is effective for releasing muscle tension which patients may experience as a result of stress or injury. Deep tissue massage focuses on treatment of the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia, to help patients overcome conditions like high blood pressure, stress and anxiety and pain from arthritis.
Sports massage is primarily preventative. This type of treatment is frequently administered to athletes before competitions, during playing seasons and after competitive events. Sports massage is effective for enhancing flexibility and is therefore used in pre-event preparation. This type of massage can also improve endurance and reduce recovery time after an injury occurs.
Athletes training to reach maximum performance often seek sports massage whether they’re injured or not, and in fact, this type of massage is used on professional athletes as well as non-professional competitors.
