Atlantic Chiropractic Center Offers Deep Tissue Massage
Different types of injuries may require different forms of treatment to encourage the healing process. When you have an injury to your muscles, tendons, or ligaments, massage may be recommended to relieve discomfort and improve mobility. Deep tissue massage can help to relieve those specific areas of pain. At Atlantic Chiropractic Center in Portsmouth, NH, we provide deep tissue massage as part of our chiropractic care, in order to improve comfort and aid healing.
What Is Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage used to treat trouble areas of the body that may be resistant to more superficial forms of treatment. Sustained pressure and slow strokes are designed to reach the deepest layers of connective tissue and muscle. It can be particularly helpful for managing discomfort and stiffness from athletic injuries and common strains. The method improves circulation to affected areas and reduces inflammation all to improve function and facilitate healing.
Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage Therapy
Deep tissue massage can provide both physical and psychological benefits. Although other types of massage can provide a sense of relaxation and relief from stress, deep tissue massage works directly on painful muscles. Because chronic pain can have a detrimental effect on mood and mental clarity, the relief of discomfort that comes from deep tissue massage can also provide improved mental well-being and focus. These effects make deep tissue massage helpful to anyone who is experiencing long-term discomfort from musculoskeletal disorders.
Massage Therapy as Part of Your Chiropractic Care
Your Portsmouth chiropractor will take a complete medical history and will thoroughly assess your condition before providing an individualized care plan for your needs. Manual adjustment, corrective exercise, massage therapy, and other modalities may be used to relieve your symptoms. Deep tissue massage can be a helpful adjunct therapy for treating musculoskeletal injuries and chronic disorders to improve movement, flexibility, and range of motion. A number of sessions are generally done before the full effects are provided.
