For centuries, massage therapy has been one of the most enjoyable ways to find relief from aches and pains or to simply relax after a stressful week.
However, there is a big difference between a hot stone massage you get from your local health spa and a medical massage that is aimed at treating uncomfortable symptoms.
Traditional medicine typically uses a combination of OTC medications, physical therapy, or even surgery to treat pain. But medical massage therapy works hand-in-hand with traditional chiropractic care to provide you with effective, lasting relief.
Medical massage therapy is designed to target specific areas of pain and discomfort to relieve the pain in addition to promoting healing and relaxation.
All massages work wonders at stretching out soft tissues, improving blood flow, and providing a feeling of gentle relaxation, but therapeutic massage is a world apart from your average spa treatment!
At a spa, massage is simply a way to relax your body and mind. But a therapeutic massage focuses on treating underlying injuries and health conditions to provide healing from the inside out.

The combination of medical massage and chiropractic care can provide a comprehensive and holistic approach to pain relief and injury recovery.
While chiropractic care focuses on the alignment and mobility of the spine and other joints, medical massage focuses on soft tissue manipulation to relieve muscle tension and pain.
A chiropractic adjustment properly aligns your spine while medical massage improves blood flow and releases tension from your muscles to help them better support your bones and joints.
Together, chiropractic and massage therapy promote overall healing from the inside out, not just relieving your pain but finding the cause of the pain and correcting it.
