There are few things better than when you leave the chiropractor, feeling fresh and new with all the pressure in your joints completely released. The only thing that we can think that is better than leaving the chiropractor is when you pair your chiropractic care with massage therapy. While we may be biased, this particular duo may be the best pairing in the history of the world. Why, you ask? Well, that is exactly what the team at Midwest Chiropractic Center, your Top Rated Local® Chiropractor, will be covering in today’s blog. Let’s dive right in!

Massage Therapy and Chiropractic Care Compliment Each Other

First things first, let’s talk a bit about how massage therapy boosts your chiropractic care, and vice versa. Though these two forms of care are a bit different, they both work to alleviate your body and reduce pain. Some of the ways that you’ll benefit from pairing massage therapy with chiropractic care are as follows.

More Effective Visits

The work that your chiropractor is doing is often a part of a long-term care plan. When you pair your chiropractic care with massage therapy, you are more likely to have chiropractic visits that yield higher quality results. When you schedule a massage before a chiropractor appointment, your muscles are much more relaxed, making your  adjustments effective and thus providing you with longer term results.

Body’s Ability to Accept the Adjustment

As we just mentioned, pairing massage therapy and chiropractic care can lead to more effective visits, and that is partially because massage therapy caters to the stability and well-being of your muscles. Whether you choose to add a massage before or after your chiropractic treatment, your body is much more likely to be accepting of the adjustment when your muscles are relieved of their tension. Trust us, this is easily one of the best parts of scheduling your appointments close to one another. This is also especially beneficial if you’re visiting the chiropractor to alleviate pain or work through an injury. 

These Two Work Together

We’ve touched on a couple of ways that these two services work to benefit one another, but there are so many reasons that doing them together can create a successful treatment plan. Here are a few of the reasons that you should consider scheduling massage therapy services and your chiropractic care appointments at the same time. 

Long Lasting Results

Whether you’re visiting the chiropractor or you’re enjoying the results of a long massage, you want to know that you’re going to feel this good for the foreseeable future. If you’re looking for longer lasting results, then you absolutely want to schedule your chiropractic and massage therapy appointments at similar times. Given that the appointments are more effective and your body is more likely to receive these results, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that you’re able to enjoy results of both massage therapy and chiropractic care that last longer.

Speedier Recovery

If you’re going to the chiropractor or massage therapist to work on some discomfort or results of an injury that you’re suffering from, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find out that scheduling your massage and chiropractor appointments around the same time can actually speed up your recovery. This dynamic duo, when used together, can help to alleviate pain much sooner and, as we’ve said, will yield much more effective visits. This combination allows your body to receive the care it needs sooner, thus recovering at a quicker pace, which is a huge bonus!

Overall Better Health for Your Body

There’s no doubt about it, these two work well together but they are completely different! When you pair these two types of physical care up, you’re going to enjoy overall better health for your body as a whole. Chiropractic care works to alleviate tension built up in your spine while massage therapy works tension and stress out of your muscles. When you let a qualified professional tackle both your adjustments and your massage therapy, during a similar window of time, you’re going to feel so much better.
