Benefits of Massage Therapy at a Chiropractic Office

We have discovered that many people are unaware of the benefits of getting massage therapy done at your chiropractic office. Massage therapy can be performed as an additional treatment to your chiropractic services or can be scheduled on its own. The pros to scheduling your appointment alongside a chiropractic treatment is that the chiropractor is able to discuss with your masseuse the areas that he/she sees need work. Also, having massage work done at a doctors office is much more credible. Below is a list of just a few massage therapy benefits.

Chiropractic Care for NHL Star

Earlier this year, Pittsburgh Penguins NHL superstar, Sydney Crosby, severely injured his head two times in the matter of one week. Both hits eventually lead to a  severe concussion, which left Crosby with constant dizziness, light sensitivity, balance issues and extreme headaches.

For many weeks following the incident, Crosby spent his time at multiple doctor offices, exhausting every effort, trying to find a cure for his symptoms.

All About Adjustments

When a client comes in for an adjustment here at Towne Lake Chiropractic we first give them an examination to see what needs adjusting. Our goal after that is to correct spinal subluxations that were detected from the exam. When the chiropractor adjusts your back he is not putting the bone back in place, yet freeing up the bone to align itself on its own. Sometimes an adjustment takes several tries because bones are similar to humans in that we are both creatures of habit. After a few visits the bones should learn where to be repositioned. Not every adjustment will be the same. Sometimes you will sit up for a certain adjustment and other times the doctor will have you lay down.
