Chiropractic Massage Therapy for Repetitive Injuries

June 25, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 208

Are you having recurring injuries that keep troubling you? Then you may consider chiropractic massage therapy for quick relief of your boring condition. The good news is that massage therapy is not only safe for your health condition, the treatment is comforting and soothing as well.

Repetitive strain injuries (RSIs) are "injuries of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems that may be caused by repetitive tasks, forceful exertions, vibrations, mechanical compression (pressing against hard surfaces), or sustained or awkward positions." Chiropractic massage therapy focuses, essentially, on the causes of musculoskeletal dysfunction rather than just narrowing down on relieving the pain. This is because chiropractic treatment is a holistic approach that uses various techniques and procedures to locate the root cause of the pain and repair it while at the same time supporting and speeding up the body's own repair mechanism.

What is Massage therapy?

Basically, "massage therapy is the specific manipulation of soft tissue (muscle, ligament, tendon and fascia) that can help restore function by treating and preventing specific health issues, musculoskeletal dysfunction and injuries". Chiropractors apply massage to the body with the use of fingers, knuckles, palm, forearm and elbow 'by working from the most superficial to deep layers of tissue within the body.'

Chiropractic massage therapy is very effective in the treatment of repetitive injuries which are commonly associated with people engaging in sporting or work-related activities. Conditions such as muscle spasm or contraction, whiplash, stress anxiety, back pain, tension headaches, depression, irritable bowel syndrome, poor circulation, postural restrictions etcetera can be treated using massage chiropractic therapy.

A technique such as deep-tissue massage is applied. It helps in correcting inappropriate pattern of movement by returning deep, chronically tense muscles to a relaxed state. Deep tissue massage helps in increasing joint mobility and circulation. Also, myofascial release massage is another form of therapy that chiropractors applied in repetitive injury cases. Myofascial Release is a non-oil technique involving the application of stretches and pressure to the fascia and muscles which helps to relieve tension and pain by lengthening the fascia allowing the muscles to return to their correct position, length and function. Acupressure is also used. A firm digital pressure is applied to specific points that cause pain and limit movement. Acupressure therapy is very effective in the treatment of repetitive injuries or for conditions associated with trauma or poor posture.

Chiropractic massage therapy is very effective in treating the treatment of repetitive injuries, focusing principally on the causes of musculoskeletal disorder associated with repetitive chore which is commonly reported by athletes. Chiropractic massage therapy is safe and effective, and it provides quick heal for all your boring injuries.
