Why You Should Try Massage Therapy

What massage therapy from your chiropractor in Oswego, IL, can do for you

Massage therapy can help you relax, but that isn’t all it will do. The truth is, massage therapy can help you feel better in many ways. Dr. Eric Carson at Carson Chiropractic in Oswego, Illinois offers a wide range of chiropractic services including massage therapy, to help you feel better.

Massage therapy is an effective treatment for relieving pain from:

  • Chronic headaches and migraines
  • Jaw disorders including TMJ problems
  • Arthritis and other degenerative joint problems
  • Carpal tunnel and other nerve issues
  • Diabetic neuropathy in your extremities
  • Sprained or strained muscles or ligaments
  • Circulatory and digestive problems
  • Allergies and respiratory issues
  • Sinus problems and congestion
  • Insomnia and stress management

Massage therapy is an effective treatment to help in your rehabilitation from an accident, injury, or even a surgery. While you are healing, full range-of-motion and flexibility can often be lost due to scar tissue buildup and adhesions. Massage can help restore flexibility, mobility, and range-of-motion by breaking up adhesions, and lengthening tight muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

Great circulation is one factor that can help your tissues heal, and massage therapy has been shown to boost circulation. Massage can help you heal faster, and feel better during recovery from an illness, accident, or injury.

If you enjoy being active or playing sports, sore muscles can keep you from feeling and performing your best. Massage can help relieve soreness by easing tense, aching muscles, and helping you relax.

At Carson Chiropractic, your chiropractor may recommend combining massage therapy with other treatments including adjustments, thermal therapy, and stretching exercises to help you feel your best. Massage techniques may include moving and fixed pressure, compression, and vibration to give you the best, most relaxing, and therapeutic results.

Massage therapy can help you and your body feel better. To learn more about why you should try massage therapy and what it can do for you, call Dr. Eric Carson of Carson Chiropractic in Oswego, IL, at (630) 551-1003. Call today!
