How Massage Therapy works with Chiropractic
Your chiropractor will be very supportive of you having regular massage therapy at the same time as your chiropractic adjustments. It makes their treatments more effective and longer lasting. If your muscles are tight, it affects the connective tissues and tendons. In fact, tight muscles can pull the spine out of alignment, so having a massage to free up these areas before your adjustment is an excellent way to assist your chiropractor to work on your spine to the fullest extent. The best long-term way of keeping your body in a state of optimum health is to combine the two.
