Massage Q & A
What is Massage?
Massage is a therapy in which your chiropractor uses his hands or elbows to manipulate your muscles, fascia, and tendons to release tension and improve circulation.
While massage was once considered a luxury or spa treatment by Western medical practitioners, it’s one of the most ancient types of pain relief in existence.
Massage therapy is now widely accepted as a mainstream therapy to manage pain and enhance wellness.
Due to its widespread use among cultures throughout history, a chiropractor can choose from many different types of massage to heal your muscles and tissues. Standard types of massage include:
- Swedish massage
- Shiatsu massage
- Lymphatic drainage massage
- Deep Tissue
- Sports massage
Some types of massage treat the surface of the muscles and have a generally soothing effect. Deep-tissue massage reaches into the deeper layers of fascia and muscles to remove knots and tension.
What are the benefits of massage?
Dr. Vorzimer may recommend massage either as a stand-alone therapy to heal your injury or as an adjunct to other therapies, including spinal adjustments.
He always bases his treatment recommendations on your specific, unique case. Benefits of massage therapy include:
- Improves blood circulation
- Enhances lymph fluid circulation
- Provides more oxygen to tissues
- Helps you eliminate toxins
- Alleviates pain and stress
- Improves muscle tone and flexibility
- Increases range of motion in joints
- Accelerates healing from trauma, surgery, or injury
Because a healthy spine is essential to a healthy body, Dr. Vorzimer includes spinal massage in his massage treatments.
What kinds of conditions can be improved with massage?
Massage is beneficial, whether or not you have an illness or an injury. Massage soothes your nervous system, increases your circulation, and helps your body function optimally. It can improve a wide range of conditions and injuries, including:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Back and neck pain
- Sleep apnea
- Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ)
Regular massage increases your overall health by soothing stress and promoting well-being. Many women and men use massage as part of their self-care and health-promoting program.
