Connective tissues, called myofascial tissues, envelope your muscles and bones. If you have tightness in your myofascial tissues, you will likely pain, discomfort, and diminished blood flow. Medical massage is a natural, effective method to achieve myofascial release, which can help heal a range of health conditions.
5. What conditions can medical massage help address?
How does this all relate to chiropractic care? Because damaged tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function, a tissue injury may also restrict joint mobility. If the providers at Ultimate Medical Health determine that chiropractic care should be part of your customized treatment plan, you may undergo a chiropractic adjustment or spinal manipulation. During this procedure, the doctor will manually adjust your bones to restore joint mobility, thus alleviating pain and muscle tightness and allowing tissues to heal.
