Massage Therapy and Chiropractic Care in Harmony

Massage therapy involves manipulating the muscles through a series of pulling and kneading motions. When you repeat a particular motion or hold a position continuously for any length of time, your muscles tighten, and you can experience pain and discomfort. Massage therapy works to release the tension so that you feel more comfortable and your body functions correctly.

When you come to our office, you won’t receive standard massage therapy. Our doctors merge chiropractic techniques with massage therapy to ensure a healthy mind and body. They start with a massage to relax your muscles, reduce nerve compression, relieve your pain and give you a heightened sense of well-being.

The next step is spinal manipulation to increase your range of motion and reduce the irritability of your nerves. The proper alignment of your body’s skeletal system and muscles will also help enhance your body’s ability to heal itself.

With the powerful combination of massage therapy and chiropractic techniques, our doctors will help you gain a higher level of emotional wellness and musculoskeletal health.

Whether you are experiencing back pain or just need to relieve muscle tension, our chiropractors in Orem can be of great help. Our holistic approach to massage therapy can bring more than relief or relaxation.

Our massage therapy produces many benefits, including:

  • Stress relief
  • Increased flexibility
  • Improved range of motion
  • Greater relaxation overall as well as in specific muscles
  • Lower blood pressure and improved circulation
  • Improved healing time following injury
  • Relief from tension headaches
  • The reduction or elimination pain and inflammation in the body
  • A balance in your body’s systems (including digestion and lymphatic drainage)
  • A balance in sleep and energy levels

Why Get Massage Therapy from a Chiropractor?

Some people are confused about when to book a relaxing massage from a spa and when to go with a therapeutic massage at a chiropractor. If you experience persistent or chronic back pain, for example, a balanced treatment plan that combines chiropractic care and therapeutic massage is the best course of action.

Massage therapy is an excellent supplemental service if you need chiropractic care for your neck or back pain. It acts as a warm-up to the spinal adjustment. When your muscle tension has been released appropriately, it is likely that the adjustment will last longer. This will give your injured soft tissues or muscles enough time to heal properly, helping prevent recurring pain or injury.

At Foundation Chiropractic, we specialize in combining massage therapy with chiropractic techniques. Even if you don’t need chiropractic adjustments, you can come to us for a relaxing massage. With our professional, holistic approach, we help you achieve stress relief and some of the many other health benefits of massage therapy.

How Should You Prepare for Our Therapeutic Massage?

If you are receiving massage therapy, we recommend that you take a few important steps to prepare for your treatment before arriving at our office. First and foremost, keep yourself hydrated. Muscles that are hydrated are much more pliant and easier to manipulate, resulting in a more effective treatment. Please also notify our chiropractors of any illnesses or injuries you have, as well as any past surgeries or medical issues. We encourage you to communicate your goals and expectations to us to ensure that we meet your needs.
