At Chiropractic and Rehabilitation of South Florida we provide manual/massage therapy to help you heal from whiplash, neck pain, back pain, and such daily pains as tendonitis, shoulder pain, and weekend warrior injuries like golf and Tennis elbow, that many of us are prone to.
Massage is a “hands-on” therapy, manipulation of muscles, soft tissues and connective tissue to enhance the function of those tissues and 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, 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.
