Back pain can be debilitating if it goes untreated. Long-term, chronic pain can limit a person's activities and reduce their quality of life which can cause depression. Dr. Coogan, a Kirkland chiropractor, knows how to relieve back pain, which increases a patient's mobility and helps them to become more active. Increased levels of activity can strengthen the body and mind. Continued chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy sessions are part of a complete treatment program that addresses back pain at its source, allowing for complete healing and faster recovery time.
Massage therapy can be extremely beneficial when dealing with back pain. While chiropractic adjustments correct the physical problem and restore balance to the spinal column, massage therapy strengthens the soft tissues by improving circulation, releasing tension from the muscles, and flushing away toxins and contaminants that become lodged in the muscle tissues. Manipulating the soft tissues through the use of massage therapy techniques makes them more flexible allowing for a greater range of motion and less stiffness and discomfort. Massage therapy also works to reduce stress and frustration that can build up in the muscle tissues and cause muscle cramping and fatigue.
Chiropractic care is beneficial because it helps to restore balance and form to the body. When the body gets injured or damaged by illness, scar tissue and tight muscles can cause the spinal column to become misaligned. When the body stays out of balance for long periods of time, the scar tissue limits range of motion, reduces mobility, and result in permanent damage to the joints and connective tissues. Chiropractic care helps to prevent scar tissue from forming and allows the injured area to begin healing. When combined with massage therapy, the healing process moves forward at a faster pace.
