Several studies from the American Massage Therapy Association have demonstrated the effectiveness of massage therapy in treating back pain, neck pain, and headaches, especially when utilized with chiropractic care.
The studies show that massage therapy enhances the effects of chiropractic care by relaxing the muscles and increasing blood flow to the musculoskeletal system in an effort for it to heal faster.
Massage therapy can be used for general aches and pains or for more specific conditions. Some of these specific conditions are: pregnancy massage, sports massage, and fibromyalgia.
Massage therapy also lowers stress. Stress has been linked to several health problems, such as: heart disease, depression, diabetes, hypertension, and chronic pain.
