Alleviate Pain With Massage Therapy

Monday, October 20th, 2014

Not only do massages feel good, but they have therapeutic benefits too. Let’s face it: all pain is not created equal. There is pain from a back injury that feels different from fibromyalgia pain, or from repetitive motion. However, a combination of massage therapy and chiropractic care in Amarillo can alleviate all types of pain no matter what the cause is.

Insurance coverage

Did you know that, in many cases, your visit to a massage therapist or chiropractor in Amarillo, and any rehab that is performed, are likely all covered under ONE insurance co-pay? Amarillo Pain & Accident Chiropractic Clinic can help you decipher whether or not your session will be covered!

Lasting results

Massaging reduces stiff, tense muscles that can contribute to chronic pain. With regular massage provided by our therapists in Amarillo, patients feel their muscles loosening up over time, which reduces the pain that has plagued them. Studies show that long term massage therapy can have lasting results by actually stimulating the whole nervous system. Long term massage therapy can also help pain-relieving endorphins and serotonin levels kick in, providing much needed relief to patients in pain.

In addition, after our Amarillo chiropractor makes adjustments, muscles tend to spasm from time to time or work against the correction. Massage therapy helps to reduce these muscle spasms, making the visit to the chiropractor more durable, more effective, and longer-lasting.

Relieve stress

It’s widely known that the emotional feelings of stress can manifest themselves physically, creating pain in the neck, back, shoulders, and head. When people become stressed, they tense up, making muscles work harder to relax at the end of the day. The key to managing the pain that comes with stress is to treat the symptoms with massage therapy.

Think of a massage like the unraveling of a knot. The knot represents the tightness of your body during stress. Massage therapists in Amarillo work the knot out and loosen it, so that your muscles can breathe a sigh of relief. Regular massaging keeps your muscles relaxed and you’ll begin to form new habits. Instead of tensing the knot, you may find other ways to channel your stress and your pain will be gone.

Chronic pain treatment

Experts have found that regular massage therapy helps treat chronic pain, whether it’s from an illness or from an injury. Massage therapy can improve quality of life for patients in pain, and ease muscle strain. Massage therapy is a viable option to prescriptions, surgery or other more traditional treatments. Massage is tailored for each type of pain, such as a lighter touch for fibromyalgia patients. When you are dealing with chronic pain, consistent treatment is the key to feeling better. Schedule regular massage therapy appointments in Amarillo to fully resolve your pain and begin to live life feeling a lot better. Massage is even recommended for frequent or chronic headache pain and migraines.

Repetitive motion causes pain

Many of us sit behind a desk, typing for hours on end, and end up with carpal tunnel syndrome. Or maybe you lift heavy things at your job daily, creating neverending back pain. Any type of repetitive motion over time will end in pain, and massage therapy can help. Some injuries that result from repetitive motion include pinched nerves, back pain, tennis elbow, and sciatica. Since these are all muscle related, a massage therapist in Amarillo can help. With soft tissue pain like this, massage therapy can ease away the pain and tightness and actually help heal the muscles. Using massage therapy may also alleviate the need for surgery to treat these types of injuries, and stop muscle spasms, contractions, tingling, and numbness. Massage therapists in Amarillo can also help prevent new injuries by loosening your muscles; it’s easy for a tight muscle to become injured.

Get chiropractic care with massage therapy for better results

Partnering chiropractic care with regular massage can be just what your body needs to relax and become pain free. Chiropractic care focuses on the alignment of the spine, which can help your entire body move without pain, reduce any nerve pain, and provide much relief to your back and the rest of your body. Couple massage therapy with chiropractic treatments in Amarillo to ensure that you keep feeling your best and that your visit is even more effective in the long run.
