Massages can be used both to aid general wellbeing as well as treat particular physical problems. Some of the recognised benefits of massage include: increased circulation, improved flexibility and movement around mechanical structures and boosts to energy levels. It can also help to relax muscle tissue, helping muscles to feel less ‘tight’ after treatment. At Morley Chiropractic Clinic we believe massage can help our patients in many different ways. These include:
In a busy world of work and family life it is often easy to forget to make time for yourself. Having a massage not only allows you to have some ‘me time’ but can also help to reduce feelings of stress and anxiety. Other benefits include better sleep patterns and improved mood, which is good news if you are always on the go.
Aiding injury recovery
Specialist massage can also be used as a way of treating many different types of injury. This massage may form part of an overall treatment plan that could also include exercises and stretches. Injuries that massage can help with include: muscle tears, tendon tears and whiplash. Massage can also help general muscle recovery, for example, if you have overused muscles or competed in a long race or high intensity sports event.
Helping with conditions
Massage can also be used to help manage different problems. These are wide-ranging but include conditions such as: sciatica, tension headaches, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Therapists are able to use a combination of techniques to help address the issue and allow the patient to better manage the pain they are experiencing.
