Massage therapy and chiropractic care are both medical practices. However, they are considered alternative medicine because they offer alternative ways of diagnosing and treating disease. The field of massage therapy focuses on muscular and nervous system disorders. Chiropractic studies the effects of the skeletal and nervous systems, which is where these two practices overlap.
There are two main methods of massage therapy you can find locally at a chiropractor. One is Swedish massage, the most common type of massage that actually originated from Sweden. Swedish massage involves five strokes ranging from light to vigorous. These strokes are made by five movements including kneading, shaking and vibration on the muscular areas. The other type of massage therapy available at a chiropractic clinic is sports massage. This method pinpoints areas of injuries or pain to relieve them immediately after workouts or games.
Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when you have pain, numbness, or tingling in certain fingers. We offer natural and surgery-free carpal tunnel syndrome treatment here at the Roxbury Spine and Wellness Center.
Numbness and tingling in one or both of your legs are signs of sciatica. Often associated with lower back pain, sciatica occurs when you have a pinch on the sciatic nerve. This nerve runs through the muscles in your lower back, buttocks, and back of your legs. When the nerve is pressed or pinched it causes numbness and tingling in the affected leg. We treat sciatic nerve pain here at the Roxbury Spine and Wellness Center.
