Massage therapy can be an effective aid in reducing many types of pain, especially pain caused by muscle spasm or tension caused by living with chronic pain. It improves blood circulation and relaxes muscles which helps muscles recover from pain and injury. This also helps increase range of motion in the affected areas. Massage can also lead to an increased release of endorphins in the body. These are chemicals that help make us feel good which, in turn, help patients manage chronic pain.
Chiropractic care addresses how the structure of the body, especially the spine, affects the body’s functions. It can help relieve pain through spinal manipulation and is often used to help alleviate back, neck or limb pain. Spinal manipulation involves applying careful and controlled pressure on the joints of the spine to increase movement in the joints and relax muscles.
Massage and chiropractic care are often combined with other pain-relief treatments for optimal results.
