Pacific Health Known for Quality Chiropractic Care for You

Massage Therapy and Chiropractic Care, sometimes are said to be an alternative medicine. They can be used together or alone. Both practices through manipulation of certain elements of the body can be of benefit to the patient in many ways. Both of these methods are considered to help the body to heal faster, such as in sports injuries, car accident injuries, such as whiplash or other back sprain type damages.

Therapy can help to reduce pain and inflammation. The certified massage therapist (CMT) will use different techniques to aid in better circulation of the blood through the body. Improving the body’s circulation can result in removing certain waste products. Better circulation will also bring needed nutrients to the body improving the healing process. Through the therapist trained hands the muscles soften and lengthen, allowing for a realignment of the injured muscle fibers.


The use of Chiropractic treatment connected to Massage Therapy can prove to be very successful. The one benefit of combining the two together is that it can usually speed recovery. The CMT can give definite support to the Chiropractic adjustments. The patient who has been the recipient of massage therapy preceding the Chiropractic treatment may have a more relaxed, less anxious feeling. Normally, when the muscles are less tense the Chiropractic adjustment will be more effective.

The soft tissues of the body need to be in a healthier, relaxed state, for healing to take place. This can be accomplished through massage therapy. Pain may still be present, if the soft tissue problems are not recognized. Our bodies’ muscles work to move the joints. These two professions together may very well present many benefits to the person needing care for injuries or on a course of preventive and maintenance care of their body.

Chiropractors are known for making manual adjustments to the spinal column. They use the force from their hands to exert pressure on the bones of the spine to align them. Most people are familiar with the cracking or popping sounds of getting an adjustment to their spine. Chiropractors use massage therapy to warm up the muscles and soft tissue areas around the spine prior to making an adjustment to a patient.

Massage chairs are increasingly used to perform massage therapy for chiropractic patients. A massage chair helps to loosen tight muscles, ligaments and tendons. This helps the spine to adjust more freely.+

Typically pressure on the spine is concentrated on a few of the vertebrae which put undue pressure on the muscles, tendons and ligaments which hold the spine together. This concentrated force causes stiffness in these soft tissue areas. This can be caused by incorrect posture, improper lifting techniques or by an injury.

Pacific Health provides an effective means to help the soft tissues to become more flexible and elastic. They help to elongate the muscles with soothing massage techniques. As the muscles relax, then elasticity is restored allowing a greater range of motion. Regular massage chair therapy helps to reduce built up tension and stiffness in these critical areas.
