When chiropractic care is used in conjunction with massage therapy, both treatments work together to create a harmonious effect, resulting in a much faster recovery time for the patient. When the body becomes more relaxed through massage, it allows the doctor of chiropractic to smoothly realign various parts of it.
Medical massage is medical care delivered under the direction for a prescribing health care provider. The focus of this care is result oriented and focuses on functional outcomes to improve the health and status of the patient. While the therapist may use a variety of modalities or procedures during the treatment, the focus of the medical treatment are specifically targeted to the areas related to the prescription and/or diagnosis. During medical massage, a thorough health intake is conducted and a treatment plan is developed to provide you with the most appropriate treatment for your injury.
