Massage Therapy FAQs

Although many people associate chiropractic care with adjusting the joints or spine, your chiropractor near you can also perform massage therapy to help you heal. You may wonder what makes massage therapy different from a standard massage and how it can help you. Hillcrest Chiropractic in Clarksville, TN, is here to answer frequently asked questions about this treatment to help you understand how effective massage therapy can be in your chiropractic treatment plan.


What Is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy manipulates your body’s soft tissue to promote healing and reduce pressure in the tendons, ligaments, and muscles. Our chiropractor applies pressure, strokes, and movements to the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia to relieve tension and restore range of motion. Doing this also increases circulation to affected areas and enhances overall health and wellness.

What Are the Benefits of Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy offers multiple benefits to your overall health and well-being. After a massage therapy session with our chiropractor, you may experience the following:

  • Reduced stress and anxiety
  • Improved relaxation and sleep
  • Pain relief
  • Improved circulation and blood flow
  • Better range of motion
  • Reduced headaches
  • Boosted immune system

How Is Therapeutic Massage Different?

Therapeutic massage differs from massage therapy in its focus. Massage therapy promotes general relaxation and circulation, whereas therapeutic massage targets specific areas to alleviate pain and restore mobility. Our chiropractor uses deeper pressure during a therapeutic massage to reach affected muscles and fascia. Doing this helps reduce inflammation and tension to improve your range of motion.

Can Massage Therapy Be Paired With Chiropractic Care?

Our chiropractor often pairs massage therapy with chiropractic techniques to enhance your results. For example, your back pain treatment plan may include massage therapy to improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic adjustments. Relaxing tight muscles allows our chiropractor to correct misalignments more easily.

Whiplash and neck pain treatment plans that include massage therapy help prevent future pain flare-ups and injuries. Sciatica treatment also benefits from massage therapy if your sciatica stems from a herniated disc. Reducing tension enables our chiropractor to return your discs to their proper placement, easing pain and restoring your range of motion.
