Learn more about how massage therapy could improve your general health.
When it comes to treating many physical issues you could turn to prescription medications and other common remedies to help you feel better, but sometimes these measures don’t always work as effectively as someone may want. Find out if you could benefit from seeing your Edmonton, AB chiropractors Dr. Christopher Oviatt and Dr. Michelle Martinook for massage therapy.
Here are just some of the incredible advantages that you can enjoy when you get massage therapy in Edmonton:
Reduce or Eliminate Pain
Whether you are dealing with neck, back or general muscle pain anyone can benefit from getting a massage. Many people experience pain because of sitting improperly at a desk for the majority of their day. Whatever the cause of your pain chiropractic care can relax stiff and tense muscles to provide the relief you need.
Increase Flexibility and Range-of-Motion
Flexibility and joint movement can decrease either as a result of an injury or just as a natural part of aging. But a massage can help to increase fluidity in the joints and make flexibility easier. Because of this increase in joint fluidity, you can also reduce your chances of injury.
Stress affects everyone at some point or another and trying to incorporate healthier habits into your lifestyle can certainly go a long way to reduce anxiety. Even one massage can reduce cortisol and insulin levels and leave you feeling more relaxed.
Massage helps to improve blood flow to certain areas of the body, which can improve overall function and also promote faster healing in injured regions.
Boost the Immune System
Some research has found that getting massages routinely can actually reduce cytokines, the molecules responsible for inflammation. Inflammation can lead to serious issues like cardiovascular disease and depression.
