Research studies show that massage therapy can be an effective part of pain relief and management. Because of this data, massage is becoming a respected and sought-after pain management tool. At Mount Vernon Chiropractic, our licensed massage therapist specialize in treating:
Your body has a special way of reacting to injury, through an immune response that causes redness, heat, and swelling in the affected area, muscles, and joints. When lymph fluids and inflammation start to accumulate in your body, the excess fluid puts pressure on blood vessels, causing circulation to decrease and limiting blood flow to that area.
As the pressure increases, it irritates your nerves, which causes pain. Helping your body remove excess lymph and inflammation through massage therapy can improve blood flow, which will reduce the pressure that is irritating your nerves and can greatly reduce pain.
Massage is considered to be a non-pharmacological therapy, and has been successfully used for pain management.
Our massage therapists focus on your entire body system and its relationship to soft tissue that may not be the site of pain.
