Massage therapy and soft tissue injuries
At Chiropractic and Rehabilitation of South Florida we provide manual/massage therapy to help you heal from whiplash injuries, neck pain, back pain, as well as daily pains such as tendonitis, shoulder pain. Massage therapy is also helpful for weekend warrior injuries like golf elbow and tennis elbow, that many of us are prone to. There are several types of massage therapy techniques although when it comes to accident pain injuries the techniques most commonly used are trigger point therapy and manual therapy. 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, 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. Most people know that 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 or stress, feel less pain and evoke feelings of calmness. A massage can be a work out so we recommend you start drinking water immediately after. The reason for this is although massage affects the body as a whole, it particularly influences the activity of the musculoskeletal, circulatory, lymphatic, and nervous systems and we want to make sure the body has water to perform all of these functions effectively. Drinking plenty of water 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.
