Massage room at Back in Motion Chiropractic

Massage therapists, like Pat Rose LMT, use a variety of techniques to address soft tissue problems and increase circulation.  The increased blood supply and nutrition to the muscles reduces inflammation and promotes healing because massage does not add to the load of toxic lactic acid produced through voluntary muscle movement.  So massage helps prevent buildup of harmful "fatigue" products that result from strenuous exercise or injury.

Massage also helps improve muscle tone, increases the number of red blood cells, improves circulation and nutrition of joints, and disperses the edema following an injury to ligaments and tendons and facilitates movement.
