The Importance of Massage Therapy
Apr 2, 2018

Massage therapy is often used in tandem with other treatment solutions used by chiropractors. Your Atlanta chiropractor may suggest incorporating massage therapy as a part of your overall recovery or treatment plan to enhance results. All of the chiropractic clinics connected to AICA employ experienced, certified massage therapists that support the treatment plans produced by our chiropractors.

Benefits of Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is continuously becoming a more integral component of treatment for a large variety of medical conditions and accident injuries. Medical research shows that massage therapy is an effective form of treatment for stress, anxiety, pain, and tension. Other health benefits associated with massage therapy include:

  • Muscle relaxation
  • Increased flexibility
  • Headache relief
  • Digestive support
  • Improved immune performance
  • Fibromyalgia relief
  • Arthritis relief
  • Chronic pain relief

Before Your Session

Before your first session begins, your therapist will ask you a series of questions to learn more about your condition and the symptoms you’re experiencing. They will ask you about your personal and family medical history, what your goals are for massage therapy, and explain to you the type of techniques they will apply. Lastly, your therapist will conduct an examination to identify which areas of your body are painful or tense to determine the amount of pressure they should use.

Message therapy is an effective treatment solution for a variety of conditions and can help you take control of your overall health. Whether you are interested in reducing personal stress and anxiety or are looking to treat a particular accident injury, massage therapy may be the solution you’re looking for.
