"Ahhhh..." is music to a massage therapist's ear!
Massage therapy is typically thought of for relaxation, however massage therapy can be so much more when combined with chiropractic techniques. Massage treatment conducted in the chiropractic office goes for the "Ahhhh..." response as well as more specific soft tissue and muscle work to alleviate tightness and allow the adjustment's realignment of bones and its subsequent pain relief to last a bit longer. Massage therapy keeps in step with the Cox Technic protocols.
What is Massage Therapy?
Complementary to chiropractic care at New Hampshire Spine and Sport with Cox Technic Flexion Distraction and Decompression spinal manipulation, massage therapy is the manual manipulation of the body's soft tissue structures through a variety of techniques ranging from relaxing to rehabilitative. Soft tissues include muscle, skin, tendons, fascia, ligaments and joint capsules. These are often related when the spine and extremities are hurting.
With massage therapy, function, flexibility and overall circulation of the soft tissues increase.
