Portland chiropractor uses massage therapy.jpgPatients who come to see Dr. Samantha Stuart appreciate the fact that she does not rely on just one technique to provide relief from back pain, neck pain, stress, fibromyalgia, sciatica and auto accident injuries. In addition to spinal adjustments, Dr. Stuart may also recommend massage therapy to complement your treatment. This form of treatment has a long history of effectiveness and has proven so popular that estimates show that over 18 million U.S. adults and 700,000 children receive some type of therapeutic massage every year.

Massage therapy is now accepted as a component of a comprehensive treatment and rehabilitation program. Dr. Stuart may recommend the use of massage to provide relief for stress, pain, stiffness, high blood pressure and sports injuries. It has also proven helpful in boosting immunity and may provide comfort for those facing painful chronic conditions.

Massage Therapy Helps Relieve Back Pain and Neck Pain

If the doctor recommends massage as part of your treatment regimen, a variety of techniques can be used to provide relief. These could include kneading movements, long strokes, circular rubbing, tapping or gentle pressure. The goal is to invigorate muscle tissue and stimulate the flow of oxygen-rich blood as an aid to healing. Massage is also used to clear the body of toxins and increase endorphin levels, which adds to overall health. Patients always report feeling less pain and stress after receiving one of our healing massages.

People of all ages, from young to old, come to our Portland chiropractor for relief from some type of pain. Be sure to look for more information on a variety of healthcare and wellness topics in upcoming blogs.
