When pain and poor function affects your ability to perform work tasks or impacts everyday actions, you want effective help without the side effects of strong medications or the long recovery periods of surgery. At Jex Chiropractic in Kent, WA, we offer chiropractic massage therapy to help patients get back to their normal activities.
Massage is an ancient healing technique that uses touch to improve the flow of blood through the body and particularly to injured tissue. Massage uses a variety of techniques, including pressing, kneading, stroking, tapping, shaking or vibrating to stimulate circulation and reduce tension to affected areas. As a result, the increased blood flow helps to improve healing of tissues and to decrease discomfort.
Studies show that massage can improve health in a variety of ways. It can reduce discomfort from soft tissue strains and injuries, improve frequent headaches, improve healing of sports and auto accident injuries, help myofascial pain syndrome and improve immune system function. Massage increases the circulation to affected areas of the body and improves the healing of tissues. It can also be used to reduce discomfort from a variety of medical conditions. Our chiropractor, Dr. Christopher Jex, will determine if massage therapy is an appropriate method for dealing with your pain or problems with physical function.
Many people enjoy an occasional massage to decrease the effects of daily stress and get relief from minor aches and pains. But massage can also provide therapeutic improvement for a number of painful conditions. Recurring massage sessions are the best way to achieve improvement from medical problems or injuries, due to the repeated release of beneficial biochemicals that are stimulated during the process that helps to heal tissues and boost immune system response. If you have a painful medical problem, repeated massage sessions can help you to heal faster and improve your physical function more quickly.
