Massage Therapy FAQs
Everything in your body is connected. Your muscles and your bones work in unison with one another. So, if there is an issue with one bone or muscle, it can cause problems throughout the rest of your body. That is why here at La Ruffa Chiropractic & Sports Rehab in Jupiter, we use massage therapy to reduce pain and bring balance to the body. Massage therapy alleviates muscle pain and stiffness, promotes blood flow, and eliminates cramps and spasms. Massage therapy also helps those with chronic illnesses, injuries, training for sports, and overall wellness.
How Does Massage Therapy Help?
A chiropractic massage can be beneficial for adults and even children. It improves circulation in the veins and arteries and often lowers blood pressure. It relieves pain, stress, and strengthens the immune system. Our team will recommend the right massage therapy for your condition. We use different types of massage therapy treatments depending on the patient’s condition.
What Are the Common Types of Massage Therapy?
A deep tissue massage heals injuries from accidents, chronic pain, limited mobility, accidents, muscle strain, carpal tunnel, and chronic illnesses. It focuses on treating deep tissue layers and muscles. Our team will apply heat or ice packs to relieve the pain after a massage. Often, deep tissue massage is combined with exercise therapy that can be done at home to increase movement and reduce pain. We use this massage therapy to manage pain and improve mobility in more serious chronic illnesses and injuries.
Sports massage is a regular massage with special stretching exercises designed to do at our office or home. Often, we use this to treat athletes and patients who work out. It can help the healing process of sports injuries and relieve muscle pain. Our chiropractor can design special exercises to help patients strengthen their arms, legs, back, and muscles.
Trigger point therapy is a form of massage therapy used by our chiropractor to treat muscle tension, mobility, and pain. Our doctor will massage trigger points that cause pain in the body. We use this treatment to help align the spine and soothe pain in the body.
How Many Massage Therapy Sessions Do You Need?
How many sessions you may need depends on the type of health concern being treated, whether it is part of a treatment or preventive care plan, the progressive results of each session, and your overall health goal. Our chiropractor will work with you to determine how many massage therapy sessions will be required in your specific case.
