Massage Therapy and Chiropractic Care
The fact is, the power of the human touch to heal has been known for centuries, even millennia. The difference in modern times is that this power to heal has been refined and turned into a science. There are numerous tried and true, tested holistic techniques that can heal injuries and ease the pain. While a chiropractor is commonly associated with spinal adjustments, people don't always realize that the nerves that run through and down your spine lead to almost all parts of the human anatomy.
Chiropractic care adjustments can directly affect pain and discomfort anywhere in the body. Also, there are many different types of massage that serve unique, valuable purposes in our chiropractic practice at Summit Medical Care Center of Broomfield.
Massage Serves Many Purposes
Massage can loosen muscles and reveal painful areas you've had for so long, that you take the pain for granted. Whether for specific aches or pains or just for a general feeling of well-being, massages promote good health. Massages boost blood flow, which increases healing effectiveness and speed. Different types of massage target different areas and tissues. Swedish massage focuses on muscles near the body surface. Trigger point massage targets knots of muscle that produce pain. It helps manage conditions such as fibromyalgia and break down scar tissue. Sports massage is frequently used to target specific muscle groups that are overused and/or strained. Pregnant women use prenatal massages to relieve the aches and pains of pregnancy.

Holistic treatments, besides being the most natural, are often the most effective.
