While there are some people who turn to anti-inflammatory medications to ease pain and discomfort and others may opt for non-medicinal approaches like icing or heat therapy, sometimes this isn’t enough to improve your condition. In fact, while a lot of these treatment options can mask your symptoms they don’t always effectively treat the underlying issue. This is where our Houma, LA, chiropractor, Dr. Patrick Haydel, comes in.

If at-home treatment options aren’t providing you with the relief you had hoped here’s how massage therapy might help you:

  • Reduces or even gets rid of your pain
  • Reduces inflammation and swelling
  • Improves blood flow and facilitates faster healing
  • Improves joint function and range of motion
  • Reduces muscle tension (great for headache sufferers)
  • Boosts your immune system
  • Reduces stress and anxiety

Massage therapy is a safe alternative treatment for patients of all ages that involves manual manipulation of the soft tissue (e.g. ligaments, muscles, etc) to improve how these areas of the body function.

Whether your child is dealing with a strained muscle from a game or you are having trouble with shoulder mobility, there are many scenarios in which getting massage therapy in Houma could finally get your body back on track.

Getting massage therapy regularly could greatly improve a host of health conditions, including:
