Massage before and after Chiropractic Care

Clients without experience with chiropractors who incorporate massage in their treatment plans may question how the two modalities work together. Chiropractic techniques aim to align the muscles and bones back into their natural position, while massage therapy helps muscles become flexible enough to be realigned. When a client receives a massage before a chiropractic adjustment, tight muscles are loosened, making it easier for the spine or other bones to move into their optimal position. 

When a massage is given after chiropractic treatment, realigned bones to set in place. Massage also enhances pain relief by eliminating muscle tension. Massages also reduce inflammation around any realigned body parts. The blood circulation in the treatment area will return to normal after a massage. 

Massage Improves Blood Flow 

Chiropractors use their hands to apply pressure to the body in specific places. By placing a hand directly over a tightened muscle, the therapist uses mechanical pressure to move the muscle in a way that coordinates with its anatomical structure to eliminate stiffness. According to the National Library of Medicine, that movement attracts blood flow to the area, restoring circulation, which may have been impaired by muscle stiffness. The warmth of the therapist’s hands can also improve blood flow by widening the area of blood vessels and allowing for improved circulation.
