Massage therapy is generally suitable for all patients and eases muscle tension and hence will also improve the joint mobility. Massage is an ideal adjunct treatment and helps to speed up the recovery. Massage can be delivered in a gentle but firm way or occasionally can be tender when trigger points are treated. It is sometimes used for very tense patients prior to using joint manipulation. If a lot of soft tissue work is required or patients feel the benefit of massage discuss with your Chiropractor seeing a massage therapist alongside your treatment.
There are many different types of massage therapy with the aim and relaxing the soft tissue structures to aid healing. Massage alongside Chiropractic tends to work on specific muscles rather than generalised areas.
