Massage Therapy

Both massage and chiropractic offer preventive care to support good health and well-being.

At Ballantyne Advanced Chiropractic, massage therapy is an integral part of many treatment plans. Subluxations, troublesome enough on their own, are almost always accompanied by tension or injury in your soft tissue: muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia (connective tissue that permeates muscles and forms protective sheets throughout your body).

Soft tissue pain can actually spread because it causes protective muscle tightening in surrounding areas. Addressing soft tissue problems is an important complement to chiropractic care. This is because muscles move joints, while ligaments and fascia support them.

If a subluxation is adjusted without addressing related soft tissue problems, you may still experience pain. In addition, your tight muscles and shortened fascia can pull your joint out of alignment again. If these conditions are present, Dr. Usher will discuss the appropriate treatment regimen.

Both massage and chiropractic offer preventive care to support your ongoing good health and well-being. Adding massage therapy to your chiropractic care program yields a number of benefits. Recovery is normally faster and more complete when you address multiple components of your pain.

Chiropractic treatment often proceeds more easily, with less discomfort, when soft tissue has been relaxed with massage. You may be less anxious and more ready to receive a chiropractic adjustment after a relaxing massage.

Finding Relief

The relief found after an adjustment will frequently last longer when muscle tension is released that might otherwise pull your joints out of alignment again.
In addition to complementing your chiropractic treatment plan, massage therapy has been shown to have the following positive influences on overall health:

  • Relaxes the whole body
  • Loosens tight muscles
  • Relieves tired and aching muscles
  • Increases flexibility and range of motion
