Have a chiropractor and massage treat your pain. After a long day, a relaxing massage can help you unwind. But did you know that massages can do more than just relax your muscles? Massage therapy has been proven to help treat musculoskeletal pain, headaches, and other injuries.

Chiropractor and Massage Together
The balance of a chiropractor and massage can help with chronic pain. The two can complement each other very well. Before an adjustment, a massage can act like a “warm-up”. The massage will help with muscle tension and when muscle tension is released, the adjustment can last longer. When muscles are tight, they can pull joints out of alignment. A massage can address the tight muscles, where chiropractic care helps with alignment.
Appreciating the process of restoring and maintaining health is fundamental. Only so much can be achieved in a single appointment, be it chiropractic or massage. Results take time. A specific care plan will detail the commitment needed for optimal health and should be followed as outlined by your health care provider.
