Muscular Massage Therapy and Chiropractic Care: A Corrective Combination

A brand new Amazon.com fulfillment center has opened its doors here in Seattle, not too far from Stability Health Center’s offices. And while we’re just as excited as you are to take advantage of same-day delivery from Amazon.com, we also see the potential for helping people prevent and resolve chronic back pain through a combination of muscular massage therapy and Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP).

Fulfillment centers are a great way to create jobs in the community. Most of the time the work involves sorting packages, moving inventory, packing and unpacking shipments, and other forms of manual labor. This type of work will definitely bring home a paycheck, but it might also trigger chronic back pain and the like.

By using a combination of muscular massage therapy and targeted chiropractic care, Stability Health Center could help ensure your new job at a fulfillment center doesn’t become a catalyst for long-term pain.

Massage therapy loosens muscles

Unless you’re a frequent gym-goer, your muscles probably aren’t getting an intense daily workout. That’s quick to change if you’re suddenly employed at a fulfillment center, however! Between lifting, moving, and handling packages of varying weights and sizes, your muscles are in for a very quick change of pace.

When you go from passive use of your muscles to active, every day, strenuous use, there are bound to be side effects. For most people, it’s fatigue and soreness. For others, it can be minor strains, pulled muscles, or even tears. Because your job involves flexing your muscles each and every day, you’re not going to have much time in between shifts to let them recover.

Muscular massage therapy is a great way to facilitate beneficial healing and alleviate some of the chronic tension you might be feeling. Finessing muscles and massaging them works to facilitate blood flow and stimulate nerve tissue. This helps expedite the healing process.

Seeking muscular massage therapy is a great way to relieve physical stress and “reset” your body naturally, so you’re better prepared for the stress of future work.

Complementing with corrective care

Chiropractic care is the next step towards healing your body if you maintain a physically demanding job. After loosening up your muscles and promoting blood flow with muscular massage therapy, corrective chiropractic care can help reassure spinal stability.

If you’re lifting heavy objects all day, for example, your back muscles are going to endure a lot of stress. They’ll tighten up, which can cause your spine to absorb more than its fair share of stress. This can lead to compression or subluxations (misalignments). After only a few work shifts, you might easily develop a small spinal issue that has big effects on the way you feel.

Choosing chiropractic care to complement muscular massage therapy is a great way to avoid potential long-term spinal problems. You’ll be able to maintain better spinal health, which means feeling better, which means working to your fullest potential at your job!

Whether you’re slinging orders at the newly opened Amazon.com fulfilment center down the way or you’ve enjoyed a long-time career in a different warehouse, it’s important to consider your spinal health. Stop on by Stability Health Center today for a free consultation with Dr. Justin Favreau, and to learn more about how a combination of muscular massage therapy and targeted chiropractic care might benefit you.

Seattle Chiropractor Explains Common Chronic Conditions Resulting from Auto Accidents

Have you or a loved one been involved in an auto accident? Most people who walk away from an auto accident without sustaining major injuries do so thanking their lucky stars. But, before you celebrate too jubilantly, it’s absolutely critical and essential to see a corrective care chiropractor to make sure you’re not leaving the accident scene with the makings of a chronic issue.

A car accident at any speed is a traumatic experience for your spine. From the inertia that pushes your body around, to the sharp motions that result in whiplash for your neck, your spine is bound to suffer during and after an accident, even if you don’t have any cuts, bruises, or broken bones. Visiting a chiropractor could yield insight into areas of concern in your spine post-accident and help you remedy them before they turn into something worse.

Take a look at some of the more common chronic conditions that can develop as the result of spinal trauma from an auto accident that’s left untreated:

  • Whiplash: Whiplash is both the action and the ongoing condition that results from your cervical spine swinging violently backward and forward after a collision. As this happens, it can cause micro-tears in the muscle and ligaments that support this region of your neck and head. Untreated, whiplash can cause permanent mobility conditions in the neck, long-term stiffness, and chronic pain. It could also generate problems with your hearing and vision, as this area of the spine is home to nerve pathways for these senses.
  • Herniated discs: Rapid compression of the spine can cause the discs between your vertebrae to slip out or shift to the side. Even after your spine decompresses post-impact, these discs may remain out of alignment, which results in a loss of buffer between vertebrae. A slipped disc can be responsible for everything from pinched nerves to chronic back pain, as well as loss of feeling in certain areas of your body. Depending on where the disc is slipped and which vertebrae are affected, you may also see conditions such as tremors or restless leg syndrome (RLS) develop.
  • Compression fractures: At high speeds your spine can’t handle the movements of your body and is therefore unable to act as a shock absorber. What happens instead is a dramatic compression of your spine, resulting in compression fractures. This extremely painful condition opens the floodgates to a number of chronic conditions, including long-term pain, hunched posture (kyphosis), and even permanent mobility issues.
  • Spondylolisthesis: A low back condition that occurs when one vertebrae slips out of alignment onto the one below it, this condition frequently accompanies herniated disks. The chronic conditions that arise from this type of injury are prolific, but commonly focus on nerve interruption. Numbness in the extremities, tremors, phantom pain, or loss of muscle control in different areas of the body can all be traced back to spondylolisthesis.
