What exactly is Muscle therapy?

You’ve probably heard of Myofascial release, Deep tissue massage, Acupressure, Neuromuscular Therapy, Orthopedic massage, Sports massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Active/Passive – Pin & Stretch, and Structural Bodywork/Integration (Rolfing).

All of these methods are part of what Muscle therapy in Abbotsford is People have the wrong idea about whether or not this type of therapy hurts or not. My experience has taught me that the body is like an onion in that if you want to get deeper, you have to work on the layers above it, one at a time. This type of muscle work gives you the best long-term results because it is designed to go right to the source or areas that are causing the problem in the surrounding soft or connective tissue. Basically, we look for “issues in your tissues” to make it easier for you to move in the area where pain or dysfunction is happening. In a way, it hurts, but not more than a patient can take. Patients often feel a little sore after this work, just like you do after you exercise. This is why we carefully explain what to expect and ask for open communication, so we don’t go beyond a patient’s threshold. When this type of treatment is done for the first time, it can be painful, but the more work that is done, the less painful it gets and the more it “hurts so good”)

The perfect combo

Even though each has a lot of benefits on its own, they often work well together to make a complete treatment plan for many illnesses or injuries. Muscle therapy in Abbotsford focuses on the soft and connective tissues of the body. It involves applying pressure to the fascia, muscles, tendons, and ligaments in specific ways to relieve pain and tension. Chiropractic adjustments, on the other hand, are done by a trained person applying controlled force to different parts of the skeletal system of the body to correct what is physically out of place. This helps the nervous system quickly reboot so it can send signals to the rest of the body to make it work better. As you can see, everything is linked, and our bodies are very smart and beautifully made. Our skeleton gives all of our muscles their shape, and our muscles move our body with the help of tendons and ligaments. Everything in our body is held in place by fascia, which wraps around everything. Clearly, the best way to deal with pain and disorder is to use both treatments at the same time to speed up the time it takes to heal and get back to full body function.

Muscle work before or after an adjustment?

When muscles are warmed up with Muscle therapy before an adjustment, the body is more relaxed and can take the adjustment better (like those with chronic, dull pain). Also, if muscle work is done after an adjustment, it helps to reduce the soreness that some people feel (like those with acute sharp pain). When a patient gets both muscle therapy and a chiropractic adjustment, they will heal faster and better than if they only got one treatment. So, before or after depends on the person, but doing both within 24 hours will help your body recover faster and make it more open to the adjustment or muscle work.
