The Benefits of Massage Therapy from Our Chiropractic Office at West Loop Spine & Stability
At West Loop Spine & Stability, we are always looking for ways to expand the services that we offer to our patients. One of the common components of our services is massage therapy. As a chiropractor, many people think about us when they need help with their back; however, our goal is to provide holistic care that encompasses the entire body. That is why we offer massage therapy. There are a few benefits of massage therapy that everyone should note.
Recovery from Athletic Events
When it comes to chiropractic massage therapy, one of the most common benefits with which people are familiar is recovery from athletic events. When people exercise, they go through a process known as anaerobic respiration. One of the side effects of this process is that lactic acid is built up between the muscles. This is why people feel sore after competing. The goal of chiropractic massage therapy is to target this lactic acid and release it. That is why so many athletes count on massage therapy to help them recover.
Stress Relief and Relaxation
Next, chiropractic massage therapy can also help people with stress relief. Stress is a major problem in modern society and many people are looking for ways to deal with it. Massage is usually delivered in a dark and quiet room. There might be some music and there could also be some aromatherapy used during the session. All of this helps people relax during the massage, allowing their stresses to melt away as the trained professional does his or her job.
It’s old news that along with pregnancy comes a bevy of aches and pains. Many of the musculoskeletal pains and dysfunctions that accompany pregnancy can be mediated or even entirely relieved by massage. Similar to how massage can be used to treat injury and aid recovery, it can be used to alleviate a woman’s pain as her body goes through the changes her body makes during pregnancy.
No Side Effects or Complications
Finally, one of the most important benefits of this treatment option is that there are no side effects or complications that accompany massage. One of the major issues with usual medical therapies is that they could lead to side effects that might be worse than the original injury. This is not a problem with massage therapy. Because this is a manual therapy, there are few side effects that could occur.
