Massage therapy has been used for thousands of years as an aid in the relief of back pain and neck pain, but it is also helpful in rehabilitating injuries, reducing stress and promoting general health. This therapeutic treatment for muscles and soft tissues in your body can reduce swelling, increase range of motion and enhance the flow of oxygen. It is also very relaxing and helpful in reducing stress and tension, which may be a source of recurring pain. Many patients from Harrisburg, Hershey, Progress, Colonial Park, Lower Paxton, and Grantville, PA start with this therapy as part of a rehabilitation program and benefit from it in ongoing treatment for a lifetime of wellness.
Comprehensive Chiropractic Care Also Includes Acupressure for Healing and Balance
There are different types of massage which our chiropractor may use, depending on your injuries and medical history. Swedish massage is one of the most common types used, where long strokes, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping are implemented to achieve pain and tension relief. Trigger point focuses specifically on muscle knots that may be causing symptoms in other parts of your body. If you have chronically tight muscles, or have experienced a repetitive strain injury, Dr. Skocik may also use deep tissue massage, which employs slower strokes across muscles with more aggressive pressure.
Acupressure is similar to acupuncture but without the use of needles. Your body
contains meridians, or channels, which control the flow of energy or chi to all areas. Illness and pain can occur when this flow is interrupted. Acupressure
uses localized finger pressure, holding each point for a short period of time to improve circulation and restore balance and energy.
Over 16,000 patients (and counting) from Harrisburg, Hershey, Progress, Colonial Park, Lower Paxton, and Grantville, PA have found relief from back pain and neck pain through the treatment methods used by Dr. Skocik.
