Massage Therapy in Maplewood

person getting shoulder massageMassage has been in use for thousands of years. Throughout the years, different variations have been developed to address particular problems. Manipulating muscles, ligaments, and tendons using just the hands and fingers has proven an effective method of relieving stress on the body.

The Many Benefits of Therapeutic Massage

This non-invasive method may be added to your care plan for faster, more lasting results. Before treatment, your therapist will ask questions about your history, symptoms, and health goals. Unlike a spa massage, therapeutic massage addresses issues such as

  • Decreasing anxiety
  • Fixing compensations
  • Addressing headaches/migraines
  • Relieving pain
  • Addressing nerve-related issues
  • Rehabbing sports injuries
  • Reducing stress
  • And more
When used to complement chiropractic care, massage therapy works the muscles to relieve built-up stress and strain, allowing the vertebrae to remain in their normal position. It also makes the chiropractic adjustment easier to do and with less force.

Another Approach to Healing

When looking at massage therapy at most clinics, you won’t see many therapists working on disc injuries, personal injury, auto accidents, or workers’ comp cases. At MW Chiropractic, Dr. Mike believes this is a missed opportunity to enhance care for these individuals.

Disc injuries have a vascular component where the cells have broken down, creating an inflammatory state. The patient will experience lingering pain and discomfort if not removed from the area. With lymphatic massage, blood flow is facilitated to the site to remove these cells, reduce inflammation, and relieve pain. Deep tissue massage can be beneficial in breaking up fibrotic tissue, so muscles heal more completely. Dr. Mike usually recommends adding massage to the care plan for persons dealing with these issues.
