It is well established that the careful application of pressure and manipulation can stimulate the body's natural healing mechanisms. Touch alone is associated with a cascade of biological effects, including reduced stress, increased blood flow, decreased autoimmune symptoms and even elevated mood. That's why one of the most popular chiropractic treatments combines the traditional power of touch with a wealth of medical knowledge: chiropractic massage.
Unlike the traditional massage you are likely to receive at your local spa or resort, chiropractic massage is designed to aid in healing. Doctors of chiropractic are trained to discover and relieve many sources of pain and misalignment, including herniated disks, pinched nerves, collagen cross-links and other issues. Because the pain that results from these ailments can keep many patients out of massage therapy altogether, chiropractic massage offers a good alternative: sound medical care that relieves your pain instead of exacerbating it.
Dr. Keith Nussbaum typically designs patient-specific massages to suit and resolve the symptoms that bring you into our offices. Back pain, neck pain, headaches and joint pain may all experience significant relief through the expert use of medical massage.
