The Difference Between Massage Therapy and Chiropractic Massage

Massage therapy is focused on providing relaxation to your body. A masseuse uses gentle force to massage your muscles and joints and bring peace to your mind and body. Approaches to massage therapy and chiropractic massage are slightly similar. However, chiropractic massage is more of a holistic method of treatment. People who suffered an injury or accident may consider getting a chiropractic massage from a licensed chiropractor.

Note that only a licensed chiropractor is allowed to perform a chiropractic massage.

Massage therapy is centered on providing the much-needed relaxation of your muscles while alleviating tension. On the other hand, chiropractic massage covers the entire musculoskeletal system including the neck, spine, ligaments, nerves, tendons, and many others.

Things That Happen During a Chiropractic Massage

Before a licensed chiropractor proceeds with any treatment plan, a careful assessment is done to determine if there are any underlying conditions that will be affected. It is important that you tell everything about your medical history and any medications you are taking. From there, your chiropractor will come up with a treatment plan including a chiropractic massage if your condition permits it. Your overall treatment plan will include the duration and methods of treatment that you will undergo.
The duration of your treatment will vary depending on the extent of your injury. This means that you might need to go to the chiropractor’s office a couple of times a week. On top of that, your chiropractor may separate your adjustments from your chiropractic massage sessions.
As your condition gets better and more manageable, that’s when your chiropractor will decide to alter your treatment plan. Your visits to their office may become less frequent. Although, necessary adjustments and massage sessions will still take place.
