"Ahhhh..." is music to a massage therapist's ear!
Massage therapy is generally thought of for relaxation, however massage treatment can be so much more when tied together with chiropractic techniques. Massage treatment offered in the chiropractic office seeks the "Ahhhh..." response as well as more specific soft tissue and muscle work to alleviate tightness and allow the adjustment's realignment of bones and its subsequent pain relief to last longer. Massage therapy keeps in step with the Cox Technic protocols.
What is Massage Therapy?
Complementary to chiropractic care at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic with Cox Technic Flexion Distraction and Decompression spinal manipulation, massage therapy is the manual manipulation of the body's soft tissue structures through an assortment of techniques ranging from relaxing to rehabilitative. Soft tissues include muscle, skin, tendons, fascia, ligaments and joint capsules. These are often involved when the spine and extremities are in pain.
With massage therapy, function, flexibility and overall circulation of the soft tissues increase.
