How Does Massage Help?

Clients often want to know the difference between the soft tissue work that Dr. Valente offers and the therapy provided by massage therapists.

Both methods are beneficial and offer their advantages, and many of them have techniques that overlap (like cupping and trigger point release).

In fact, Dr. Valente often encourages clients to receive massage in tandem with his own treatment. The two techniques are like peanut butter and jelly, two great things that are even better together!

Chiropractic treatments often address the whole kinetic chain along an affected part of the body (for example, the movement of the leg when a patient walks). By combining tissue work, corrective exercises, and nerve flossing, Dr. Valente treats the musculoskeletal system as a whole, finding the root cause of pain and seeking to correct it.

Massage therapy can be beneficial for patients with especially tight or sensitive soft tissues due to overused or underused muscles. The hour-long treatment deeply targets problem areas, allowing for noticeable improvement in mobility and health of soft tissue and muscles in the body. By loosening the tight tissue or myofascia in a patient's back, they allow the patient to recover faster from pain or injury. This treatments while soothing and relaxing, is also an intense way of addressing the symptoms of pain.

Massage therapy is great for athletes, and also beneficial for patients with arthritis, chronic pain, and chronic inflammation. It can energize, reduce anxiety and insomnia, reduce inflammation and improve the body's circulation.

The best part? Some insurance plans may cover the cost of massage therapy! Inquire with our office to see what your coverage details will be like!
