Massage and Adjustments
Local massage is often used in preparation for an adjustment. Massage relieves tension and warms up the soft tissues in the area, making joints more pliable and more easily adjusted.
A general massage (1/2 to 1 hour long) can also be good preparation for an adjustment. In addition to preparing the immediate area of concern, it helps you relax over all and become more receptive to other hands-on treatment.
A massage after an adjustment is also beneficial for further relaxation. With regular therapeutic massage, chiropractic adjustments may hold longer and allow your body to return to an optimal state of function/health quicker
