PORTLAND, Ore., March 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Patients at Laurelhurst Chiropractic report of a variety of benefits when they receive massage as a stand-alone service or as a component of their treatment program. Responses to therapeutic massage therapy include pain reduction and an increase in range of motion. Research is available that supports the relationship between massage therapy and shorter recovery times from injury. Chiropractors offering a holistic approach may incorporate massage therapy in an individualized treatment program to produce pain relief and ease muscle tension. Laurelhurst Chiropractic’s three massage therapists, Hayden, McKinley-Paige, and Jesse, offer specialized massage therapy techniques to address a range of chronic and acute conditions.
Massage has been shown to produce positive changes to the respiratory system, the lymphatic system, and immune function. Some advantages for those that receive regular massages as part of their treatment program include less severe and fewer headaches, better sleep quality, improved metabolism, more manageable blood pressure, and even weight loss. Other benefits include increased flexibility, reduced lower back or neck pain, decreased post-surgical swelling, increased circulation, and reduced anxiety levels. The Portland massage therapists at Laurelhurst Chiropractic use their skills and experience to address the needs of a variety of patients.
There are many modalities of massage therapy from which to choose. Swedish massage uses long strokes and gentle pressure, as well as rubbing and tapping, to offer patients tension relief and relaxation. Patients may fall asleep during such a session. Deep tissue provides more forceful pressure with the objective of addressing targeted tissues and tendons. Deep tissue is used to work on areas of scar tissue, reduce muscle adhesions that decrease range of motion, and even improve posture and gait. Amateur and professional athletes often receive sports massage sessions to not only address injury but to improve muscle health and flexibility.
“Massage therapy is a well-established tool to effectively address a wide range of issues in patients,” said Dr. Danielle McCary. “The hobbyist, office worker, athlete, executive, and mom-to-be can all benefit from the specialized techniques offered under the umbrella of massage therapy. Our massage therapists, Hayden, McKinley-Paige, and Jesse, are available to attend to the individual needs of patients. They look forward to helping our patients feel their best.”
