If you’re suffering from any acute or chronic pain, Dr. Ron Maugeri, Dr. Evelyne Leone, and Dr. Josh Ballenger offer massage therapy and chiropractic care at Malibu Chiropractic and Wellness in Malibu, CA to help relieve your pain and achieve optimal health.
What Is Chiropractic Massage Therapy?
When most people think about massage, they think about the relaxing process of relieving muscle tension and stress that often includes essential oils, candles, and calming music. While all of these things are beneficial to the body and mind, therapeutic massage is a bit different. Therapeutic massage in Malibu, CA focuses on spinal health and how the spine interacts with muscles, joints, and nerves throughout the body.
Benefits of Massage Therapy
Massage therapy can provide many benefits for the body. The main benefits include relieving tension in the soft tissues and increasing blood flow to the massaged area, both of which can help to treat the following and more:
- Neck and back pain
- Pain in the joints
- Pinched nerves
- Problems with the discs
- High blood pressure
- Trouble sleeping
- Foot pain
- Hip and knee pain
- Sports injuries
Massage therapy is often used in conjunction with chiropractic treatments for optimal results. This combination works well as the two treatments complement each other.
As massage therapy loosens the muscles and relaxes the body, tension is less likely to interfere with Dr. Maugeri’s, Dr. Leone’s, or Dr. Ballenger’s ability to reach the problem area. Therefore, when spinal manipulations are completed after massage therapy, it makes it more possible to fully realign the spine. Once the spine has been realigned properly, it takes the pressure off of the muscles, nerves, and joints, which leads to less tension and pain in the body.
During your next massage session, they can reach even deeper into the muscles, helping to break apart scar tissue that has been building up over long periods. And as more scar tissue is broken down, Dr. Maugeri, Dr. Leone, or Dr. Ballenger can provide even more effective adjustments.
Both chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy provide incredible benefits on their own. Together, they provide very effective treatment for conditions and support general health and wellness.
