Combining massage with an osteopath, physiotherapist or chiropractor

Tags: Nottingham, chiropractor, physiotherapist, Osteopathy

Last week we looked at the three practices of osteopathy, physiotherapy and chiropractic and how they differ from each other. All three of these practices do occasionally use massage as part of their treatment of patients, but it is not a focus and is not done a great deal. So, in this blog we are going to look at how you can benefit from combining regular massage with your treatment from an osteopath, physiotherapist or chiropractor.

If you are injured or are recovering from an injury, you will want this recovery to go as quickly and as smoothly as possible. Whether you are going to see an osteopath, physiotherapist or chiropractor, adding regular massage to your treatment is a great way to complement the therapy you are receiving and speed up your recovery.

We always joke with clients referred from the the above therapists that they like to diagnose a problem, but don't like to do the heavy work.  That's when we are called in, all elbows and thumbs the beat up the offending tense muscles.

Sports massage uses slightly different techniques and principles to the above practices, but the end goal is the same; to free you of pain and injury, amongst other things. So, if you have two professionals working on the same affected area using different techniques, they are likely to complement each other and boost the progress you are making towards recovery.

Going for massages in between treatments will help you keep on the intended path. it will make sure everything is moving correctly and functioning as intended. we will have a constant dialogue with the other therapists and if requested work on certain areas. A general massage will also help you to relax mentally; physiotherapy in particular when recovering from an injury or operation can be a very stressful experience on both your mind and your body. You are being pushed to your limits and may be experiencing a great deal of pain. 

When the pain you're experiencing from the condition you are having treated is bad enough, it could cause disruptions to your sleep. Massage helps lots of people with difficulty sleeping, so you can get a good night's sleep without worrying about your pain.

There are many benefits to combining regular massage with your sessions with an osteopath, physiotherapist or chiropractor. So if you want to speed up your recovery process, call 0115 8373553 or book your massage today.
