Combining Chiropractic Care and Massage Therapy | Renton Chiropractors

Achieving good health requires multiple elements working together – staying active, eating a healthy and balanced diet, and taking a holistic approach to your healthcare are some key examples. Oftentimes, there isn’t an end-all-be-all solution to your physical ailments. Combining different treatment options provides the best chance to improve your symptoms and prevent future health issues from occurring.

While massage therapy is often categorized as a luxurious or pampering service, it can provide an excellent compliment to chiropractic care as a part of a comprehensive healthcare regime. The combination of the two hands-on treatments are known to produce more effective results, faster healing times, and other additional health benefits.

Chiropractic care focuses on the musculoskeletal system and nervous system, addressing the hard tissue of the body, such as the spine and other joints. On the other hand, massage therapy focuses on soft tissue manipulation of the muscles, tendons and ligaments. Soft tissue treatment helps to reduce pain, improve mobility, and prevent injury.

We offer massage therapy treatment for patients suffering pain in the neck, shoulders, back, and legs. Massage therapy is also known to be effective in treating migraine and headaches. During a massage treatemtn, your licensed massage therapist will apply different levels of pressure on your muscles, tendons, and ligament depending on your needs.

There are a variety of massage techniques that a licensed massage therapist might use.  Among the most common types of massage are Swedish and deep tissue. Swedish massage is typically used for relaxation, improving flexibility and circulation, and rejuvenating the tissues and muscles. Deep tissue massage focuses on the deep layers of muscle and fascia in the body to rehabilitate injuries and ease chronic pain.

At Petett Chiropractic, we believe that optimal health and wellness requires a holistic approach to care. Through a comprehensive regime of chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, and our other treatment services, we focus on properly maintaining the body to improve its functions and prevent future injuries.
