Boca Raton Chiropractor Announces Massage Therapy Treatments

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - Feb 12, 2012) - Shadowood Chiropractic Center announced that the practice provides massage therapy as part of its comprehensive wellness services for pain management and injury rehabilitation. The practice's licensed massage therapist offers several different styles of massage, including deep tissue, trigger point and pregnancy massage. A typical session lasts between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on each patient's individual wellness needs.

Boca Raton patients who are recovering from an injury or managing chronic pain have a new treatment option. Boca Raton chiropractor Dr. Allan DellaBella announced that his wellness center, Shadowood Chiropractic Center, offers massage therapy treatments.

"Massage treatments are an important complement to chiropractic adjustments for pain management," said Dr. DellaBella "This treatment offers important benefits for everyone from personal injury patients to individuals who suffer from chronic pain."

According to Boca Raton chiropractor Dr. DellaBella, massage is an effective treatment choice for helping the body heal following an injury. The act of massaging injured tissue promotes the flow of fresh, oxygenated blood, which flushes out toxins. A build-up of lactic acid and other toxins following an injury impedes the healing process, and can lead to the formation of scar tissue.

"When treating patients for sports injuries or car accident injuries, our goal is to help the body naturally heal," said Dr. DellaBella. "Massage treatments unlock the body's inner ability to heal while also naturally managing pain by increasing endorphin levels. Regular treatments are an important complement to chiropractic adjustments, and they also help reduce stress and enhance overall well-being."

During a massage treatment at the wellness center, a licensed massage therapist will apply varying pressure to points of tension, soreness or stiffness on the body. Every treatment at the practice is tailored to each patient's individual wellness needs.

The wellness center offers a variety of massage styles, including Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, trigger point massage and pregnancy massage.

A deep tissue massage can help patients manage chronic pain by penetrating deep into the musculoskeletal system, beyond the superficial muscle layer. This deep penetration can help release tension trapped deep inside knotted tissues.

Dr. DellaBella also recommends trigger point massage for pain management. This style of massage focuses on specific trigger points associated with pain. By stimulating these points with deliberate, focused pressure, Dr. DellaBella says patients enjoy relief from chronic pain, headaches and migraines.

According to Dr. DellaBella, many expectant mothers benefit from regular massages during their pregnancy.

"Pregnancy massage is safe, and helps expectant mothers naturally relax while relieving pain on the lower back and pelvic area," said Dr. DellaBella. "By increasing the pliability of the skin and underlying tissues, these treatments can also help prepare the body for childbirth."
