Massage Therapy Techniques Used in Chiropractic Care
Whether your pain problem is a result of a degenerative condition, or due to direct trauma or injury, certified Mission Chiropractic massage therapists are trained to adapt various hands-on techniques where pressure is carefully applied to muscle tissue to gently manipulate joints and decrease pain caused by muscle spasms, muscle tension and joint dysfunction using a variety of techniques that include the following:
Swedish Massage – Incorporates several massage therapy techniques from light, to moderate and deep manual pressure. Swedish massage can be targeted to offer relief for various injuries and to promote overall wellness and stress reduction.
Deep Tissue Massage – Helps to release tense and tightened muscles, offers relief from chronic pain, improves flexibility and mobility and improves posture and physical performance. Slow and methodical strokes penetrate the deeper layers of soft tissue to release pain and tension patterns.
Lymph Drainage Techniques – The lymphatic system is important to the proper functioning of the immune system. Mission Chiropractic massage therapists apply controlled pressure to stimulate muscle contraction and release allowing lymph to move through the body via these muscle groups found within the larger lymph vessels.
Myofascial Release – Trauma or injury can lead to myofascial dysfunctions that limit your range of motion and compress muscles or nerves causing chronic pain. Our Sunnyvale massage therapists carefully stretch and release adhesions that condition your body to release natural endorphins for pain relief.
Trigger Point Therapy – Trigger points in the body may be commonly referred to as tight and tense “muscle knots” that are frequently the source of chronic pain that may actually originate in other parts of the body. Mission Chiropractic chiropractors regularly observe that a trigger point in the spinal column for example, may be the source of pain that is felt in the neck area. Certain trigger points may also be associated with chronic pain syndromes that include fibromyalgia and other conditions. Qualified Mission Chiropractic massage therapists are trained and experienced to identify the source of muscle pain discomfort and administer professional trigger point therapy treatments to provide lasting relief.
