Sick of Back Pain? Try Therapeutic Massage Therapy!

Written By Smith Chiropractic on December 8, 2017

Do you need more massage time in your life? For most people, the answer is a resounding yes. Massage therapy is a non-invasive, low-risk way to get your back in shape and reduce chronic pain in the process. Therapeutic massages are a proven way to relax your muscles, increase the production of ‘feel good chemicals’ and promote your body’s natural healing processes. 

For those suffering from back pain in Colorado Springs, Smith Chiropractic’s therapeutic massages may be what you need to realign your back and finally find relief. 

Benefits of a Therapeutic Massage

Massage therapy is a widely accepted medical treatment for chronic back pain, circulation issues, and other physical problems, especially when used in combination with other chiropractic treatments. 

Overall, massage therapy can help your body in numerous ways:

  • Increase circulation and blood flow to aid recovery and eliminate muscle soreness after strenuous physical activity.  
  • Eliminate muscle tension, increase flexibility, and reduce pain caused by overly tight muscles. 
  • Promote the production of endorphins, which are feel-good chemicals in the brain that reduce anxiety and depression while eliminating pain and speeding up the physical recovery process. 

Often, chiropractors will recommend that you experiment with massage therapy along with your traditional treatment option so that the two procedures can benefit each other. Not all chiropractors offer in-house massage therapy services, but Smith Chiropractic does and is ready to serve everyone in the Colorado Springs area with chronic back pain. 

What Does Massage Therapy Involve?

Unlike a regular massage, massage therapy is more focused on bringing your body to better health than helping you generally feel good.  Several forms of massage therapy that target specific problems in your body. For example, Swedish massage relies on long strokes and kneading motions to relief overall muscle tensions. If you need a more focused approach, Shiatsu massage relies on trigger point treatment to target the specific points in your body that might be tense or are causing you the most pain.
