Visiting a licensed Chiropractor in Atlanta involves more than simply receiving a massage or getting your back ‘cracked,’ so to speak.
While massage therapy comes in a variety of forms and overall, are proven to offer positive health benefits like reducing stress; Chiropractors are trained to be able to identify what particular technique(s) will work best for treating your unique condition.
If you are suffering from lower back pain caused by a prior slip and fall incident or an auto accident, you might not be aware of how beneficial a massage can be for recovering and living a pain- life.
Here are three key benefits of Chiropractic massages to keep in mind when deciding what steps you should take on your road to recovery.
Unlike going to some spa, a Chiropractic massage is entirely dedicated to providing medical support and the kind of treatment you receive decided by your doctor.
Both qualified parties perform a thorough, holistic evaluation of your unique condition, which means that they focus on more than one aspect of your injury to formulate a comprehensive treatment plan that aligns with your body’s unique structure and posture.
Once your Chiropractor has completed their evaluation, they and your massage therapist will go over the areas of your muscles that require the most support, as well as the type of depth and level of pressure that will be necessary to apply during your massages to properly treat your condition.
Throughout the entire recovery process, both licensed professionals are always communicating with each other to understand how your performing and when to adjust treatment, based on your progress.
Because Chiropractic massages are considered to be a legitimate part of a health care program, they are covered by insurance providers.
If you were hit in a car accident and are depending on automotive, personal injury protection (PIP) coverage, a professional Chiropractic massage is typically covered completely (up to $15,000 per person involved in the accident).
Of course, you need to contact your health insurance provider to understand what your particular policy covers, before making an appointment.
Wellness massages focus on your entire body and therefore, require a higher level of education when it comes to successfully performing various techniques.
Treating lower back injuries is much more intricate and complicated than just offering relaxation.
During a massage, your therapist will migrate throughout the greater area of your injury to address some of the underlying issues, adjusting their techniques to align with each area of concern.
This type of insight demands experience and requires a sophisticated level of training to develop the kind of skills, knowledge and even touch that are appropriate for treating medical conditions.
