This wellness service is the combination of both chiropractic massage and trigger point therapy. Chiropractic massage is an excellent method for improving musculoskeletal efficiency. Massage has a number of beneficial effects on the body and the mind. Some of these include removal of toxins that can build up in the muscles of the body, increased circulation, and increased flexibility in not only the muscles, but also the connective tissue within the body. Chiropractic massage can also help with muscle spasms as well as soft tissue injuries. Increasing the movement and reducing the overall recovery time by helping the body in the healing process. In addition, consistent massage has been known to increase balance.
Trigger points are “highly irritable localized spots of exquisite tenderness or nodules in a palpable taut band of muscle tissue.” Simply put, trigger points are small areas within in a muscle that can potentially cause a lot of pain…and not necessarily at the exact location of the trigger point. Trigger points are very common and may be present even in the absence of pain.
Our Chiropractic Massage & Trigger Point Therapy service focuses on improving the health of your muscles and eliminating trigger points - ideally, before pain begins. This service is great for those who like to push their muscles to the max! It is also a great add-on to the Wellness Visit for those who occassionally need more than a chiropractic adjustment!
