As the holidays approach, it can be easy to become stressed. Fortunately, there is a relatively simple way to help decrease those stress levels-a massage! Massage therapy offers many benefits, and here at Chicago Chiropractic and Sports Injury Centers we offer therapeutic deep tissue, sports soft tissue, trigger point, and myofascial release therapy, all of which are versions of massage therapy. Your body needs to relax and take advantage of the benefits that these types of therapy offer.
The number one reason many go get a massage is to relieve stress and anxiety. While an exciting time, the holidays can leave one feeling stressed and anxious about planning and having guests over. When you feel like this, it is harder to sleep, your blood pressure increases, and you can easily get headaches. Fortunately, massage therapy helps all three of these symptoms!
Different types of therapies available at our offices can assist with pain relief. Many utilize massage to manage lower back pain, fibromyalgia pain, symptoms of Carpal Tunnel syndrome, and more. When you are suffering from chronic pain, massage is sometimes one of the only things that work, especially for those with neck pain.
These types of injuries can occur essentially anywhere in your body. Fortunately, with sports soft tissue therapy, and the other available options, you can relieve these muscles, and hopefully speed up the recovery. Additionally, massage therapy can relieve postoperative pain, enhance exercise performance, increase the range of motion, and more, all of which helps athletes in the long run.
There are many benefits of massage therapy at any time of the year. However, it may be extra important during this stressful time. Contact your Chicago Chiropractic and Sports Injury Centers location to begin your massage therapy!
