Therapeutic Massage Techniques
Our Licensed Massage Therapist, Dianna Martin, utilizes therapeutic massage. This therapy aids in patients’ rehabilitation by focusing on manipulating and realigning the deepest layer of muscles and connective tissue. It is the most beneficial therapy to release chronic muscle spasms. At Superior Spine Care we provide specific massage and muscular therapy tailored to meet the patient’s condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
When there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement, and inflammation. Deep-tissue massage is a specific type of therapeutic massage that breaks down adhesions by concentrating on the deep layers of muscle and fascia in the body. By using deep pressure and slow, firm strokes, deep tissue massage breaks down adhesions and restores normal movement. Multiple techniques and methods within the practice of massage therapy are used to treat a variety of physical ailments such as Muscle Tension and Postural problems. Below are brief descriptions of the methods Dianna is likely to use as a licensed massage therapist. Use the link in each brief description to learn more:
What Our Patients Are Saying
I used to get migraines frequently, so I thought I’d give Superior Spine a try. I’ve been going to Superior Spine for close to two years now. Ever since I started getting a monthly massage and adjustment, my migraines have lessened immensely! I recommend Superior Spine!!
I can't speak highly enough of Dr. Wensink's practice. After hurting my back about a year ago, I have been visiting on a regular basis and they are always accommodating with scheduling. Dr. Wensink takes the time to get to know you as a patient, and asks thoughtful questions to ensure that his treatment meets your needs. The practice is conveniently located and with occasional Saturdays makes it easy to find a time to visit.
Dr. Neil and his staff provide truly superior care. He is an experienced, very talented chiropractor who carefully investigates and effectively treats painful, complicated conditions. He is thoughtful, kind, and focused. The pleasant office is clean and well managed. He is one of the very best chiropractors I've seen. I highly recommend his practice.
