Whether you are seeking a chiropractor for neck pain, back pain, headaches, a new injury or a long standing issue, you probably were referred to a massage therapist to help relieve your pain.  Your south side Edmonton Chiropractor has massage therapists in the clinic that they work with, which is common among many chiropractic clinics.  This is because, while chiropractors work with the hard tissue and massage therapists work with the soft tissue, they are both very complimentary to each other.

Chiropractors work on restoring the mind-body connection by removing the nerve interference and allowing the body to heal itself.  Often with the bones out of place, the muscles and tendons have become quite tight and rigid.  Massage can help soften these muscles allowing for the new aliment to conform to the body quicker than on its own.  Massage can also increase circulation which can speed healing and recovery. Your south Edmonton chiropractic and massage clinic offers both massage and chiropractic in the same building, making it easy for you to receive the relief you are looking for.  Call for an appointment today 780-430-7549.

Combining massage and chiropractic care can also be quite beneficial as having a massage before your adjustment can loosen the muscles, thus increasing the effectiveness of the chiropractic adjustment.  A massage can release tight muscles, inducing a sense of calm and relaxation that can last well after your massage, often a welcome feeling for those who have been suffering from headaches, back aches, neck pain or any other type of pain. Often those that have been suffering from these ailments may also not be sleeping.  Massage can help not only sleep disorders, but diabetes, surgical recovery, chronic neck and back pain and so much more.  Talk to your south side Edmonton Chiropractor about how massage can help benefit or check out our website at www.whitemudchiro.com.
