We specialize in correcting your body’s misalignments. Our goal is to ensure that your spine and the rest of your body are working harmoniously. To do so, we will help you develop a plan that will require light stretching, some exercise, chiropractic care, and a healthy diet.
Corrective exercises are the use of bodily movements and/or postures to restore desirable changes in diseased or injured tissues. The corrective exercises are movement strategies that minimize or eliminate compensation. Corrective exercises should precede more integrated exercises, because they can cue the patient’s motor system to respond in a more desirable way and assist in removing or improving biomechanical constraints.
Our team here at Total Spine Health & Injury Center is dedicated to helping you achieve your long-term health and wellness goals by offering you reliable lifestyle advice. If you are not sure if the lifestyle choices you are making are worsening or improving your condition, we are here to help. We address the typical chiropractic issues as well as coach our patients to live a healthier life by looking at the individual as a whole mentally, physically and emotionally.
Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being. There are many types of massage therapy methods (also called modalities). People seek massage therapy for a variety of reasons; for example, to reduce stress and anxiety, to relax muscles, to rehabilitate injuries, to reduce pain and to promote overall health and wellness.
There are several different types of massage therapy, but they all aim to manipulate soft tissues and muscles to try and relieve the patient of chronic pain. Kneading, tapping, circular movements, and long strokes are all various motions that a licensed massage therapist, will use in order to concentrate on areas where the patient feels the most pain. Oftentimes, this type of therapy is used in addition to other treatments, to offer a holistic approach to the patient’s pain management. The massage therapists at Total Spine Health and Injury Center are trained in multiple massage techniques and can adjust treatment technique, treatment area, and pressure for each unique patient.
Which Symptoms Can Be Addressed with this Therapy?
Chronic neck and back pains are the primary conditions that are often addressed with massage therapy. Muscle “knots” can be worked out during massage therapy sessions to lessen pain that patients may be feeling. Some studies have shown that massage therapy can help lower blood pressure and even reduce feelings of depression and anxiety in some cases.
Another benefit to massage therapy is that the treatment is very non-invasive, with very few side effects in relation to taking medications. Of course, before any treatment plan is made, you and your doctor will work together to bild the odeal pain management plan to address your symptoms.
How Can I Benefit from Massage Therapy?
If you suffer from ongoing, chronic pain, you could likely benefit from massage therapy. Even athletes with sports-related injuries and those looking to improve their overall health and wellness have something to gain from massage therapy sessions. As previously stated, this type of therapy is usually used alongside other treatments, such as chiropractic care, in order to eliminate as much of your pain as possible.
