What Is Chiropractic Massage Therapy?
When patients from Harrisburg and the surrounding areas come to Skocik Chiropractic after injury, the first thing they crave is relief. Chiropractic massage therapy is one of many available therapies for pain management. Taking a whole-person approach to wellness, Dr. Skocik will start your immediate recovery with traditional chiropractic care and bolster it with massage and acupressure.
Massage therapy has been used for thousands of years for neck and pack pain relief. It’s a hands-on, therapeutic treatment that not only relieves pain, but also reduces stress and supplements injury rehabilitation. By engaging the soft tissues, chiropractic massage therapy can increase range of motion, enhance oxygen flow to muscles, and reduce swelling. Many of our patients from the Harrisburg, PA area begin with massage as part of their rehabilitation program, and then go on to add it to a lifetime wellness routine .
The Different Types of Chiropractic Massage Therapy
There are various types of massage your chiropractor will choose from, depending on your injuries and medical history. Swedish massage features long strokes, vibration, and circular movements, and it’s typically used for relaxation and stress relief. Trigger point massage targets specific knots that are central points for pain all over the body. For chronic tightness or repetitive strain injury, your chiropractor may choose deep tissue massage. This type uses aggressive pressure and slower strokes to get underneath stubborn tissue.
Over 16,000 patients from Harrisburg and nearby neighborhoods of Colonial Park, Hershey, Progress, Lower Paxton, and Grantville, PA have found relief from chiropractic massage therapy. Alleviating back and neck pain through the methods used by Dr. Skocik focuses on non-invasive, all-natural treatment for long-term pain relief. A cornerstone of chiropractic treatment supported by therapeutic techniques such as massage may be the approach you need in order to return you to a life full of health and wellness
