Chiropractic Soft Tissue Massage

A soft tissue massage might seem like an odd thing to receive at your chiropractor’s office, but it can actually play a vital role in your healing and relief. Learn why in this quick guide from Dr. Hanson and the team at Meyer Chiropractic in Stillwater, OK.

Your Soft Tissues and How They Impact Spinal Health

You might only think of your bones when you think of your spine, but they are but one component. Your spinal column is a complex system that includes various soft tissues that support your movement and keep everything connected. They are involved in everything you do each day.

Various things can damage, tighten, or weaken your soft tissues. For example, a spinal misalignment can put extra stress on your muscles, which can create a great deal of tension. Tension can be at the core of many complaints, including headaches.

On the other hand, tension or damage in the soft tissues can cause problems for the spinal column. If you have a great deal of muscular tension in your back, for instance, it can put strain on your bones and cause a misalignment. That misalignment can then cause further tension.

In short, both the soft tissues and the bones can impact and be impacted by one another. Together, they can cause a wide range of symptoms and suffering.

How Soft Tissue Massages Can Help

Massages are well known for their relaxation benefits, which often cause them to be viewed as more of a treat than a necessity. Though they can certainly be a treat, a massage is a natural healing technique that can help with various issues.

As the massage takes place, tension is released, which relieves undue stress on the spine. Blood flow improves, which not only improves general health and wellness but also stimulates healing in the damaged tissues. Endorphins, or natural painkillers, are released and inflammation is reduced. Additionally, the patient’s range of motion is improved, which not only helps you function better in your daily activities but also keeps the blood and healing nutrients flowing better.

Though massage provides these incredible benefits, it is typically not used as a stand-alone treatment. Instead, it is combined with adjustments and other techniques to achieve optimal healing.
