One of the most common questions Myrtle Beach chiropractors hear is if they get a massage before or after the chiropractic adjustment. It really doesn’t make any difference in most cases. Although chiropractic care and massage go hand in hand, it’s crucial to ask how they benefit each other and why they are working well perfectly together. By doing that, the client can decide if they want to have it.
Massage and Chiropractic Care
Muscle can move bone according to basic physiology. Once bones are no longer aligned, it is crucial to check how the musculature surrounding the area is out of balance. Rebalancing the musculature isn’t as simple as one would think. Different forms of treatment could be used to help in muscular rebalancing, from pinpoint stretching to the mild kneading of the tissue. Although most chiropractors are good at pinpointing stretching, it is uncommon for them to have the time needed for less aggressive methods to do their work, or to be extremely thorough in taking care of the musculature. This is when the massage is advantageous.
