Therapeutic massage takes many forms and provides many benefits, from the relief of acute or chronic soft tissue pain to accelerated healing and improved athletic performance. It also happens to make a great compliment to chiropractic care and other natural techniques, which is why Crossroads Chiropractic and Wellness Center is proud to offer a massage therapist.
Stress is known to contribute to an enormous number of diseases and disorders. Stress also creates chronic tightness and spasms in major muscle groups which leads to anything from tension headaches to debilitating musculoskeletal pain throughout the body. Precise manipulation of tight muscles can release the tension and stress, allowing the body to function more normally. Massage also has the ability to speed blood flow and improve drainage in an injury, reducing pain and swelling while also delivering healing substances to the tissues.
Massage therapy has become widely recognized as an important health, wellness, and rehabilitation tool. It’s been used to treat diverse complaints such as fibromyalgia, acute injuries, TMJ, digestive problems, anxiety, and insomnia. It can also be used to help pregnant patients cope with aches, pains, and swelling. Your Savannah chiropractor, Dr. Domanski, may prescribe it as a prelude to chiropractic adjustment sessions, relaxing the tissues so they'll be more cooperative during the adjustments.
There are actually several different categories of massage therapy, each with its own special strengths and applications. Some of these categories include:
Swedish massage - The light strokes featured in this form of massage focus on relaxing muscles and enhancing circulation just under the skin. It's effective at banishing tension and stress, relieving acute pain and facilitating injury healing.
Deep tissue massage - Deep tissue massage is more invasive than Swedish massage, employing stronger strokes to treat stiff or injured muscles, fascia, tendons and ligaments closer to the bone. Deep tissue massage can release chronic pain, elevate mood and lower blood pressure.
Trigger point therapy - Trigger points are tight muscle knots that refer pain down the nerve pathways to various parts of the body. The tension-and-release technique of trigger point therapy can undo those knots and thus undo your symptoms.
Sports massage - Sports massage addresses the special needs of athletes by focusing on the muscle groups they use most frequently in their chosen activity.
