Millions of Americans receive chiropractic care every year. They go in for treatment from anything from neck pain to headaches. Chiropractic care has continued to grow every year because of the many benefits that it offers.
You know what we mean, “that time,” the time right before you get your monthly period when you may feel crampy, achy, depressed and a whole lot of other things.
In general, massage therapy is used to relieve and rehabilitate physical dysfunction and pain through the normalization of the muscular, nervous, circulatory and lymphatic system. Massage therapy improves blood circulation, digestion, muscle healing and recovery. A specific form of massage therapy is called chiropractic therapy. Chiropractic therapy involves readjusting misaligned joints (called subluxations) in order to bring back joint mobility and effectively utilize pain management. If left untreated, misaligned joints can cause increasing amounts of pain. A study in Britain even showed that those who underwent chiropractic therapy experienced more long-term benefits compared to those who only underwent hospital treatment.
