It is necessary for everyone who is feeling pain or discomfort to generate a well-rounded treatment plan. The goal of chiropractic care is to both relieve your pain and improve your sense of well being. At LLC, we work hard to not only identify all of your problems but also to figure out the root cause. By treating the root cause, we will not only manage the problem but also prevent it from returning in the future. For this reason, as a chiropractor in Lewiston, we want to employ every treatment option we have at our disposal. In many cases, we will recommend massage and/or manual therapy along with chiropractic. There are numerous benefits to massage/manual therapy that all of our patients need to remember.
Increase Circulation Throughout the Body
One of the significant benefits of massage therapy is that it will increase circulation throughout the body. Chiropractic massage therapy will stimulate the body to increase the flow of blood, lymphatic fluid, oxygen, and nutrients. Massage therapy is crucial because it expedites the recovery process while also flushing out toxins from the body. By increasing circulation, the nutrients you need to recover from an injury or illness will reach their target sites faster. It’s one if the reasons people feel better after receiving massage therapy. We believe in a well-rounded approach to treatment, and this will often involve massage therapy.
Target Knots and Areas of Stress
Manual therapy targets the knots and areas of tension discovered during your chiropractic treatment. In many cases, when someone is recovering from an injury, the muscles and muscle fibers are tied up in knots. This makes it very hard for someone to relax. With the help of a massage therapist trained to provide manual therapy, these knots can be worked out and the muscle fibers will relax. Often, people also develop knots from stress. People carry their stress in different locations and, with the help of our trained providers, we will identify these areas of pressure and tension. Then, using our professional massage and manual therapy techniques, we will release these areas of tension.
