Massage therapy and soft tissue injuries
At Chiropractic and Rehabilitation of Miami Lakes we provide manual therapy and massage therapy as some of our service. They are performed primarily to help heal injuries from whiplash, neck pain, back pain, or for daily pains such as tendonitis in the shoulder or knees.
Massage therapy is also helpful for weekend warrior injuries like golf elbow and tennis elbow. There are several types of massage techniques that are offered at our clinics. When it comes to accident pain injuries the techniques most commonly used are trigger point therapy and manual therapy techniques. Myofascial release is another form of massage therapy that helps increase blood flow and circulation to the muscles and tissue.
Massage is a “hands-on” therapy, which includes manipulation of muscles, soft tissues and connective tissue to enhance the function of those tissues. It is also useful to promote relaxation and well-being. Massage therapy is a proven and effective means of relaxation and stress relief.
Massage therapy can also provide a number of therapeutic benefits, including:
- Reducing stress and tension
- Improving flexibility
- Increasing endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers
- Assisting in recovery from auto accident injury
- Strengthening the immune system
- Improving circulation problems
- Alleviating chronic & temporary pain
After a massage you can expect to feel more relaxed. You will also feel less tension, less stress, less pain, and evoke feelings of calmness. A massage can be a work out so we recommend you start drinking water immediately after. Although massage affects the body as a whole, it particularly influences the activity of the musculoskeletal, circulatory, lymphatic, and nervous systems.
It’s important to stay hydrated to make sure the body has fluids to perform all of these functions effectively. Staying hydrated also allows the body to flush out built up toxins released from the muscle and tissues known as lactic acid. Excessive amounts of lactic acid in the blood stream is the reason for soreness after a massage.
