At Comprehensive Chiropractic & Wellness, we are dedicated to providing each of our patients with the most advanced techniques and highest quality patient care. By combining chiropractic adjustments with regular massage therapy in Ravenswood, we are better able to treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions for patients of all ages.
In medicine and wellness care, certain techniques go hand-in-hand, much like chiropractic manipulation and massage therapy. As your choice chiropractor in the Chicago and Ravenswood area, massage is an integral part of our practice. Some of the services offered at our offices include:
To provide each of our patients with complete pain management and wellness care, we may recommend any combination of these effective treatment methods. Depending on your health conditions and lifestyle needs, our chiropractic team will work closely with you to design a treatment plan that meets both your day-to-day needs and your budget. Additionally, we will periodically conduct check-ins to see how you are progressing with your current chiropractic treatment plan and make adjustments to the plan as needed.
Like chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy is made up of many different techniques, styles, approaches, and methods. For chiropractic patients, massage therapy works to make each of your adjustments even more successful in relieving your chronic pain symptoms. With a massage session before an adjustment, our team can effectively loosen thigh muscles allowing Dr. Haynes to adjust your problem areas more easily and more comfortably.
In the long term, regular massage therapy treatment can help to encourage muscles that are freed from chronic stiffness and tightness, making them less likely to pull unnaturally. This unnatural pulling can often leave a negative effect on freshly adjusted joints, so with massage, your joints are given plenty of opportunities to comfortably settle into a “new normal” after several sessions of chiropractic adjustments and massage.
In addition to easing your chiropractic adjustments, massage services can also help to correct poor posture by reinforcing healthy and more natural body movements. Great for stress relief, regular massage therapy treatment can also help relieve respiratory issues, promote faster healing and increase your chances of a better night's sleep.
Poor posture is an indication that your spine and the rest of your body are not properly aligned. When you hunch your body forward, you are forcing certain muscles in the body to work much harder than they are designed too, while others become much weaker. Poor posture can also put unnecessary pressure on your internal organs, impeding digestion and causing issues with circulation and your breathing capacity as well.
While everyone deals with stress in their lives, there can be severe health consequences for those who never get relief from their daily stresses. Over time, massage can help to lower your heart rate and blood pressure, reduce headaches and muscle tension and even increase your sex drive. And when used to compliment chiropractic adjustments, it can help your body to heal more quickly and without the use of prescription medications or more invasive treatment methods.
Massage has been proven to be successful in treating a wide variety of health conditions, including:
