Neck injuries can be tough to live with. They make it hard to do even the most minor activity. Not only are they painful, but they can also seriously restrict your movement. Fortunately, chiropractic treatment offers a wide range of solutions including chiropractic massage.
If you’re suffering from pain due to a neck injury, our team of chiropractic therapists at Twin Cities Chiropractic in St. Paul can help you find the relief you’ve been searching for. Here’s what you need to know about chiropractic massage and neck injuries.
Why Neck Massage?
Traditional chiropractic treatment works well when supported by physical exercises and massage. The goal of chiropractic neck massage is to stimulate the muscle tissues in your neck and increase your blood flow. With increased blood flow, your body will also increase the oxygen flow to the area resulting in faster elimination of waste within the neck muscles.
This can help you get on the road to healing much sooner and reduce your overall healing time. Most importantly, it reduces the pain you’re experiencing while increasing your range of motion so you can say good-bye to a stiff neck that’s been causing you grief.
Types of Neck Injury Massage
You may be surprised to learn there are several types of massage available through our chiropractic office. Our experienced therapists can assess your needs and medical history. Depending on the type of injury, we will determine which type of massage works best for you. We’ll also create a treatment plan that combines massage with physical therapy or other treatments.
You may find relief from these types of massage:
1. Shiatsu Massage
Shiatsu massage is a form of Japanese massage which uses the therapist’s body weight to create pressure and adjust the flow of energy in your body.
2. Swedish Massage
Swedish massage aims to reduce tension and stress within the body using various techniques.
3. Deep Tissue Massage
The goal of deep tissue massage is to relieve tension found deep within your muscle and connective tissue using hard pressure.
4. Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger point therapy relies on the application of steady pressure to trigger points to promote blood flow while relieving neck spasms.
