Medical massage or manual therapy involves hands-on, therapeutic procedures designed to promote blood flow, relaxation, and healing in your injured areas. This is accomplished by working with the connective tissue that connects, separates, and supports your bones and muscles. Healthy, strong connective tissue is critical to the proper functioning of your body. Damaged connective tissue can create a cascading effect into other systems. Manual therapy can help treat damage in your connective tissues, restoring your health and proper functioning.

 

Physician Prescribed Medical Massage in Chattanooga TN

 

  • We may prescribe medical massage as a component of your overall treatment plan.
  • The objective is to relieve pain and discomfort in a specific area using pressure, rubbing, kneading, and stretching techniques to loosen the myofascial tissues.
  • Myofascial tissues are the connective tissues that wrap your muscles and bones.
  • Tight myofascial tissues can cause pain and discomfort, as well as decreased blood flow.
  • Myofascial release is a natural, effective method for healing a variety of health conditions.

 

Complimenting Medical Massage with Chiropractic Care

If you have experienced a tissue injury, it may restrict the movement of your joints. Damaged tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function.

 

If chiropractic care is part of your customized treatment plan, you may undergo a chiropractic adjustment, also called a spinal manipulation. During this procedure, the doctor will manually adjust your bones to restore joint mobility. Manipulation, or adjustment, of the affected joint and tissues restores mobility, thus alleviating pain and muscle tightness and allowing tissues to heal.
