Massage therapy has been used around the world for thousands of years as a natural healing practice. Over the past several years, modern medical science has started to unlock the reasons behind why massage is so effective at helping the body heal in so many ways. Here at Old Bridge Spine and Wellnesss Center, our chiropractors Dr. Peter Bufano and Dr. Arlene Kazio often recommend massage to help patients struggling with back pain and neck pain, and for many other conditions as well. Massage is also often an integral part of physical therapy for recovering from car accident injuries and sports injuries, and also enhances the effects of spinal adjustments.
At Old Bridge Spine and Wellness Center, our certified massage therapists Christie Denney, Nicole Richiusa, and Nicollette Melo are trained to provide several types of massage therapy for effective pain relief and pain management. They both work closely with our chiropractors to design massage sessions tailored to your condition and healing needs.
Massage therapy works to relieve pain on many levels, and also helps to accelerate healing naturally. First, it works to relieve musculoskeletal tensions throughout the body, particularly in tight, painful areas. By using manual hands-on therapy, our massage therapists actually help to relieve muscle tension and relax the body. It also improves circulation, which helps the body rush nutrients and oxygen into injured tissues to aid in the healing process.
Massage therapy also spurs the release of endorphins into the bloodstream, which are the body's natural painkillers. The combined pain relief and tension reduction helps improve flexibility and range of motion to injured, sore areas. Recent studies have also shown how massage reduces inflammation in overworked muscles, right down at the cellular level. It also better prepares the body's supporting soft tissues for spinal adjustments, which can make them more effective overall.
Massage therapy helps to minimize and combat the detrimental effects of rampant stress on our health. Studies indicate that nearly 90% of visits to the doctor stem from conditions worsened or caused by stress. This includes conditions like headaches and migraines, heart disease and high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma and allergies, depression and anxiety, obesity and many others. Science has uncovered the fact that when individuals suffer stress for long periods of time, their immune systems are less able to fend off infections and communicable diseases. Fortunately, massage can deeply relax both the mind and the body. It tones the skin, which is the body's largest organ, and it improves sleep patterns, which gives the body the rest it needs to heal itself. Studies show that regular massage therapy can also boost the immune system and improve the outcomes of many problematic health conditions.
