Churn Creek Chiropractic offers massage therapy as a natural complement to our chiropractic care for enhanced pain management and faster recovery after an injury for our patients from Redding, Anderson, Bella Vista, Centerville, Happy Valley, Cottonwood, Shasta Lake City, Red Bluff, Palo Cedro, Weed, and Yreka. Massage therapy is a conservative treatment for managing musculoskeletal pain, including back pain, neck pain, jaw pain, leg pain, hip pain, sciatica and other pain conditions. In addition to naturally relieving pain, therapeutic massage also supports the body’s natural healing process after an injury and relieves chronic stress and anxiety. Massage treatments enhance all aspects of our patients’ well-being and play a critical role in our approach to whole body care.
Chiropractic Care & Massage Therapy: Complementary Treatments for Better Pain Management
Our chiropractor, Dr. Donovan Hutchings, understands how frustrating it can be to struggle with chronic, daily pain. That’s why our treatment focus at Churn Creek Chiropractic is two-fold: provide immediate pain relief and support the body’s healing process. Therapeutic massage does both. The seemingly simple act of massaging sore or tight muscles has a profound impact on the body’s health. After an accident injury, muscles may tighten, trapping tension and restricting mobility. Massage helps to release this tension by lengthening the connective tissues, bringing a fuller range of mobility back to the body. This includes releasing from “knots” in the body’s connective tissues and muscles. This tension release translates in real relief from back pain, sciatica, neck pain, jaw pain/TMJ and other pain conditions.
Additional benefits of massage therapy:
- Increased blood circulation
- Reduced swelling
- Muscle tension release
- Muscle pain relief
- Reduction in muscle spasms
- Aid in overall body recovery
- Increased range of motion
- Relaxation/Stress reduction
In addition to relieving chronic pain, regular massage treatments can help the body heal faster after an injury. Massage increases the flow of oxygen-rich blood through injured muscles, flushing out toxins that block the healing process and reducing inflammation. This fresh blood also delivers vital nutrients, helping the injured soft tissues heal faster. Our massage therapists offer several styles of massage, including sports massage. Sports massage is especially helpful for supporting the body’s natural injury recovery process. Even if you have not sustained a sports injury, sports massage can also help reduce the risk for possible injury should you be training for an upcoming race.
One of the most popular massage therapy styles offered at our Redding, CA wellness center is Swedish massage. This style of massage is designed specifically to relax the body and mind, strengthening the mind-body connection. From hectic work schedules to gridlock traffic on your morning commute, daily stressors can truly add up over time. All this stress causes the body’s muscles to tense up and contract, making it hard to truly “relax.” A 90-minute Swedish massage session helps to lower the heart rate, cortisol levels and insulin levels, while increasing endorphin levels, the body’s natural “feel good” hormone. Our patients from Redding, Anderson, Bella Vista, Centerville, Happy Valley, Cottonwood, Shasta Lake City, Red Bluff, Palo Cedro, Weed, and Yreka not only feel less stress, but they sleep better at night and have more energy for living a full, active life!
