Boulder Chiropractor Improves Back Pain With Massage Therapy Solutions

Back pain affects the majority of people at some stage of their lives. It is becoming increasingly common due to sedentary jobs and stressful lifestyles. Medication can help to mask the symptoms, but is not a long-term solution. A chiropractor in Boulder provides safe, drug-free relief for back problems with effective massage techniques.

 

 

Back pain can result from prolonged muscle contraction. The muscles stiffen when one position is maintained for extended periods, as in jobs that involve driving or sitting in front of a computer. Muscles also tense up on response to emotional stress. Tight back muscles do not give adequate support to the spine and can lead to a range of other painful disorders.

 

 

Muscle knots are another source of back pain. They can be caused by sudden strain when bending or lifting or form gradually due to repetitive stress. The sensitive nodules in the muscle tissue can persist long after the injury that caused them has healed. The area surrounding them becomes stiff, sore and achy.

 

 

At the Boulder clinic, the chiropractor spends time with patients discussing their pain and other symptoms before performing a physical examination. She checks for bumps, bulges or taught bands in the muscles of the back and determines which areas need most attention. Different massage techniques can be used depending on the patient’s individual needs.

 

 

Massage therapy offers a variety of health benefits. It improves blood circulation to reduce soreness and accelerate healing. It relaxes stiff muscles to increase flexibility and range of motion. It also promotes the release of endorphins. These neurotransmitters interact with opiate receptors in the brain to reduce the perception of pain.

 

 

The chiropractor in Boulder often uses massage in conjunction with spinal adjustment or other therapies. Once the pain has been resolved, patients are assigned physical rehabilitation exercises to restore muscle strength and suppleness. They are also advised on stress reduction and lifestyle modifications.
