Ready to Learn About the Benefits of Chiropractic Massage Therapy?

At Walker Road Chiropractic, Dr. Gard and his team of Licensed Massage Therapists (LMTs) can promote healing and provide further relief from neuromusculoskeletal system issues and spinal disorders with massage.

As part of this holistic approach, Dr. Gard considers your situation and will often recommend a specific type of massage to facilitate healing. Massage can relieve pain while providing these benefits and addressing these issues:

  • Improving range of motion
  • Tissue flexibility
  • Muscle relaxation
  • Reduction in spasms and cramps that can inhibit a healthy lifestyle
  • Chronic pain, like Myofascial pain syndrome
  • Soft-tissue strains or injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Temporomandibular joint pain (more commonly referred to as TMJD)
  • Headaches, migraines, and more

As a chiropractor, Dr. Gard focuses on the nervous and skeletal systems and their role in the alignment of the vertebral column and other joints in your body. Similarly, LMTs deal with muscles as well as the skeletal system.

With this overlapping focus, Dr. Gard uses massage as an effective tool for treating stress- and strain-related problems as well as helping prevent other ailments that can arise from untreated problems. Massage reduces the stress in the muscles and nerves and improves circulation, including flow of blood, lymph, and intestinal fluids, which lead to a more pain-free and healthier life.

Meeting People’s Needs with Different Types of Therapeutic Massage.

Trigger Point

  • Recommended: people suffering from headaches or pain that affects the legs or arms.
  • Approach and Benefits: reduces muscle tension by “resetting the points” that leads to muscle relaxation.

Deep Tissue

  • Recommended: people recovering; injury treatment option as well as specialized massage therapy (Examples: it is highly effective in treatment of post-breast-cancer operation recovery and post-surgery problems in caesarean cases and joint repair.)
  • Approach: deep and constant pressure is applied slowly and it gradually increases as the muscles relax.
  • Benefits: eliminates muscle tension; reduces pain spasms; and slowly restores normal motion.

Pregnancy Massage

  • Recommended: women suffering from cramps, lower back pain, and spasms during pregnancy.
  • Approach and Benefits: chiropractic massage therapy is an ideal natural treatment for a woman and her baby. It relieves pain without medications and presents no harmful side effects.

Sports massage

  • Recommended: athletes and especially female athletes, who would like to speed their recovery after competitions and events.
  • Approach: Focusing on the Myofascial and musculoskeletal areas—as the athlete’s body experiences tension during activities.
  • Benefits: Myofascial release helps to restore movement. Athletes often benefit from this combination of chiropractic and massage therapy treatment, as they often (unnecessarily!) live with a great deal of uncomfortable tissue pressure.
  • Dr. Gard can also recommend changes in exercise routines to give the body time to heal and avoid serious pain.

The LMTs at Walker Road Chiropractic carry their Chiropractic Assistant (CA) license. This additional training enables them to use other tools, such as the Erchonia Percussor, TerraQuant Pulsed Cold Laser, the Acuscope, and the Myopulse. They also receive training on properly using the Kennedy Technique decompression table and the Active Therapeutic Movement (ATM2™) Concept, so they can assist and safely help patients onto machines and administer treatments under Dr. Gard’s supervision.
