Massage therapy is great for improving the overall health of your muscles and is a great addition to your regular chiropractic treatments.
Pain in the body, especially in the neck or back, is often created from dysfunction at the muscular level and the tissues that surround the muscles. It can help with muscle spasms, injuries to the soft tissue, and even reduce recovery time. We frequently use massage therapy as a part of the treatment plan for car accident injuries and sports injuries. Many of our patients that are athletes rely on massage therapy to enhance their performance and recover faster from their workouts.

What is fascia? Fascia is the connective tissue that wraps around your muscles and allows them to glide over one another and underneath you skin. It was once thought that fascia was like the Saran Wrap of the musculoskeletal system and wrapped around your muscles without doing all that much. We now know that that’s not the case. Fascia is a system that thickens in response to postural abnormalities. It can be warped or develop adhesions because of trauma. It can be a driver of pain that eludes detection from many doctors or therapists. Myofascial release is a deep tissue technique that helps to break down adhesions, and restore proper function to the muscle-fascial complex.
