Are you considering alternative treatment options and how they can improve your health?Message Therapy

While traditional medicine can certainly be great, there are times when even the treatment options you’ve been given aren’t tackling your symptoms, as they should. Don’t let pain and discomfort become the norm for you. Find out whether our Houma, LA, chiropractor, Dr. Patrick Haydel, could help improve your health and wellbeing.

What is massage therapy?

If you’ve ever dealt with aches or pains in the ligaments, tendons, soft tissue or muscles of your body then massage therapy could help you. Our Houma chiropractic specialists use manual manipulation to these areas to improve injuries, facilitate healing and relax achy, overused and tight muscles, all while promoting a stress-free wellbeing.

There are different modalities from which to choose (from relaxation to rehabilitative), and our chiropractor will work with you to determine which kind of massage therapy will benefit you the most.

Who can benefit from massage therapy in Houma?

Pretty much anyone can benefit from what massage therapy can offer. After all, this is a safe, non-medicinal way to improve the health and wellbeing of your body and mind. Since massage therapy offers both relaxation and therapeutic approaches, even those who just want to give their mind and body a little pampering can take advantage of what massage therapy has to offer. Here are just some things that massage therapy could do for you.

  • Improve functionality, range-of-motion, and flexibility in ligaments, muscles, and tendons
  • Increase circulation and blood flow to soft tissue injuries to promote faster healing
  • Reduce stress
  • Reduce pain and swelling
  • Lower heart rate and blood pressure

As you may already be able to tell, there are many conditions that can respond to massage therapy including:

  • Sports-related injuries
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Some forms of arthritis
  • Strains and sprains
  • TMJ disorders

Of course, it’s important to note that while massage therapy can certainly help with a multitude of conditions it shouldn’t be considered the sole treatment option. Massage therapy is a great complement to your treatment plan but should not replace medications or other treatments enforced by your doctor.

Whether you are just looking to give your body a little pampering or you want to treat lower back pain, turn to the experts at Haydel Chiropractor in Houma, LA, to give you the TLC your body deserves for working so hard day in and day out.
