Massage Therapy

What is massage therapy?

Massage therapy is a treatment method offered at Progressive Therapy in which a practitioner applies manual pressure to your muscles and soft tissues. They use various kneading, pressing, and rubbing techniques to facilitate improvements inside your body.

Your practitioner may suggest massage therapy to help:

  • Reduce muscle tension and spasms
  • Improve range of motion
  • Work out knots and scar tissue
  • Restore a muscle’s length-tension relationship
  • Encourage restorative blood flow
  • Improve relaxation and recovery

Where does massage fit into my treatment plan?

The therapists at the clinic provide individualized treatment for each patient. They often incorporate massage into their multifaceted treatment approach along with spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and other therapies to optimize healing.

Massage complements other chiropractic techniques to address pain and restricted movement. While methods like chiropractic adjustments emphasize spinal alignment, a massage targets soft tissues.

Together, these chiropractic treatments help restore your body’s musculoskeletal health. If you sit at a computer all day, for example, you may benefit from spinal adjustments for alignment, massage for tension, and targeted exercises for posture.

Who benefits from massage?

Most people benefit from the relaxing qualities of massage, but men and women with specific conditions experience a healing effect from massage too. Chiropractors use medical massage for its therapeutic benefits for the following conditions:

  • Pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraines
  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Sciatica

What are the advantages of massage therapy?

Many patients at Progressive Therapy love massages for the relaxation they provide. While relaxation is a welcome side effect of a medical massage, it also helps you achieve better health by reducing pain and encouraging healing.

Massage provides pain relief without introducing medication or requiring surgical procedures. If you have problems with arthritis, knee pain, back troubles, or neck pain, massage provides a non-invasive treatment option to help you avoid other interventions.

Massage also helps improve your sleep quality, activates “feel good” chemicals, and lowers your blood pressure. These favorable side effects and the nominal risk involved make massage very desirable.
