The carpal tunnel that runs through the wrist and the cubital tunnel that goes through the elbow are small channels that contain vital nerves and blood vessels that support the hand and forearm. Both can be damaged through degeneration of the joint, a serious injury, or repetitive movements that are made during the performance of job-related duties or athletic play. Over time, the irritation to the tunnel and the connective tissues surrounding it can lead to inflammation and pain. The condition can continue to worsen, resulting in extreme pain and discomfort. If not properly treated, the condition can worsen to the point where the joint is so inflamed that mobility and range of motion are dramatically affected.
Chiropractic adjustments to the neck combined with massage therapy can help relieve the pressure on the nerves and muscles and have a profound effect on headaches, migraines, dizziness, and vertigo. Neck injuries or strain on the muscles of the shoulders and neck can result in inflammation that decreases the flow of blood to and from the head. Inflammation applies pressure to the blood vessels and nerves that travel through the area. The greater the pressure, the higher the risk of headache pain. Chiropractic adjustments can re-establish structural balance, while deep tissue massage and physical therapy can strengthen and tone the soft tissues, reducing inflammation and discomfort.
The peripheral nerves that leave the cervical portion of the spinal column travel through the shoulders and down into the arms. If a person receives a neck injury, the resulting pain will follow the same path as the nerves that are affected. Shoulder pain that results from an injury to the neck will often be eased by treating the neck through deep tissue massage, physical therapy, or chiropractic care. Manual muscle manipulation or manipulating the muscles with the the use of a TENS unit or other type of electrical stimulation will help reduce the pain and eliminate any inflammation that has started to build in the area.
Massage therapy and chiropractic care are effective treatment options that can be used together or on their own in a comprehensive pain management program. When used together, massage therapy offers support to the chiropractic adjustments and helps the musculoskeletal structure retain the adjusted position. With each adjustment and massage therapy session, the soft tissues become stronger and are better able to stabilize the area, preventing re-injury and hastening the healing process. Combining both modalities allows for a more complete healing especially in cases involving plantar fasciitis and other health conditions that affect the joints and connective tissues in the feet.
Massage therapy reduces joint pain by improving circulation, eliminating inflammation, and offering comfort through the use of healing touch. Deep tissue massage involves manipulating the soft tissues of the body. This manipulation releases toxins and by-products that are released as a part of the body's physiological function. As circulation improves, wastes are flushed from the body and new, stronger tissues are formed. Knee, hip, shoulder and other joints often become stiff and immobile due to inflammation from injuries and illnesses. The impact that massage therapy has on the soft tissues of the body extends to other areas of the body as well, including the joints and vital organs.
Patients who suffer from fibromyalgia and other health conditions that affect the musculoskeletal structure can benefit greatly through healing touch. Massage therapy allows the comfort of physical touch with the manipulation of the soft tissues. Deep tissue works the muscles much in the same way as regular exercise without the physical stress on the skeletal system. Exercising with fibromyalgia can be difficult. Chiropractors have found that combining massage therapy along with chiropractic adjustments can help a person regain their strength and actually reduce their level of pain. This allows for more freedom of movement and an increase in overall flexibility and range of motion.
