What Exactly is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is a treatment that employs hand strokes, movements, and pressure for improving the condition of soft tissue, muscles, and nerves.

What Conditions Does Massage Therapy Treat?

Our Springfield chiropractic team employs personalized techniques that address your unique systems. For instance, the Swedish massage involves long gliding strokes, deep circular movements, vibrations or tapping. It provides relief from migraines, chronic back or neck pain, arthritis or tendonitis.

Deep tissue massages, which involves applying firm strokes across the muscle grain, also can provide relief of tendonitis. What is more, it targets muscles and connective tissues to relieve deep muscle soreness and arthritic swelling and pain.

Neuromuscular therapy also addresses underlying musculoskeletal and nervous system issues as pressure is applied to pain trigger points. It treats carpal tunnel, scoliosis, frozen shoulder, hip pain, sciatica and more. Myofascial release massages correct similar problems as the neuromuscular technique but work on the topmost musculoskeletal layer instead of the deepest one.

Lymphatic and hot stone massages can provide toxin releases and relaxation using light pressure. Combining lymphatic techniques with other massage movements can also alleviate prenatal back pain and improve circulation.

What Are The Benefits of Massage Therapy?

It provides pain relief without the use of medication, so a pregnant woman in labor could safely use it. In addition, it alleviates anxiety and depression and improves diabetic circulation, cancer patients and more.

How Effective is Massage Therapy?

New scientific evidence points toward massage therapy success. It works well as a standalone treatment used over several sessions or in conjunction with chiropractic care.

  • "Great staff! Friendly and efficient. Because of an insurance change, I was unable to come for too long. Thanks to a buyout, I am back! Doc does an awesome job. He listens to what the problem is and works to correct it. He doesn't rush you in and out as fast as he can. Excellent."

  • "I've been going to Twin Oaks Chiropractic for about a month now. I've had an awesome experience with the doctor and staff. I also purchased the pillow sold in the office. You add water to it so you get the perfect amount of "fluff." With the pillow, my neck pain has decreased dramatically, and I am sleeping better! Because of the treatments, massage, and pillow, I am in far less pain and overall, much happier. Thank you to the staff and doctor there!"
