Chiropractic Massage Therapy for Pain Relief in San Diego
Chiropractic care and massage therapy go together like a great Merlot and sautéed mushrooms—the combination is transcendent when you want pain relief. If you live in San Diego and struggle with back pain, neck pain, headaches, whiplash, auto accident injury, sports injury, etc., our chiropractor Dr. Herfindahl and our massage therapist can join forces to help you feel amazing.
Chiropractic Care and Massage Therapy Together?
Your body is a complex system of many moving parts. While our chiropractor relieves nervous system interference and pinched nerves by correcting spinal alignment, the spinal support system of muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia must also adapt. Massage therapy provides healing kneading, tapping, stretching and movement to these soft tissues to help them heal, adapt to chiropractic adjustments and better support your spine. Chiropractic massage is a comprehensive pain relief system with many benefits:
- Pain relief for back pain and neck pain
- Drug-free pregnancy back pain relief
- Accelerated healing after an auto accident injury
- Boosts athletic performance by helping muscles recover more quickly
- Improves circulation
- Stimulates natural pain relief by releasing endorphins
- Relieves musculoskeletal tensions
- Reduces inflammation and painful trigger points
- Improves sleep quality
- Boosts the immune system
- Relieves stress to reduce headaches, high blood pressure and other stress-aggravated conditions
And that’s just what science has been able to uncover so far about the benefits of massage therapy and chiropractic care.
