Treatments that Compliment Chiropractic

So many treatments go hand-in-hand with chiropractic therapy. Below I have listed a few that may help you get rid of your pain even faster than with just chiropractic alone.

1. Muscle Massage- All of the bones in the body are connected by a network of tendons, ligaments, and muscles. For the purpose of this report, when we say “muscle” we will be referring to muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Relaxing the muscles helps keep the body balanced and motion of the spine fluid.

2. Acupressure- In some ways it is similar to muscle massage because it helps break up trigger points allowing muscles to work normally. It really works like acupuncture, which is a great compliment to chiropractic treatment also. Acupuncture is used to balance the body meridians. Restoring the various systems of the body allows things to function at their best. Acupressure is applying pressure to those meridian points you would put the needle in for acupuncture.

3. Physical Therapy- Rehabilitative exercises or strengthening exercises help us build back strength to weaker areas of the body. This will also help to even out or balance out the body. Your physical therapist may be able to actually work directly with you to perform specific exercises and stretches to the areas most affected in your particular case.

At CT Spine & Disc Center we utilize various other treatments such as trigger point massage, back exercises, back stretches, decompression therapy, and traction in addition to various chiropractic techniques to help our patients receive fast and comfortable pain relief.
