Touch is the core ingredient of chiropodist massage therapy for patients, especially when it comes to addressing pain, and also combines science and art. Practitioners learn specific techniques for chiropractic massage and use their sense of touch to determine the right amount of pressure to apply to each patients and locate areas of tension and other soft-tissue problems. Touch also conveys a sense of caring, an important component in the healing relationship with patients.
When muscles are overworked and causing back pain, chiropractic care and back massage therapy, while providing their services, must also consider therapist liability.

What to Expect in Chiropractic Massage Therapy?
At your first appointment, our Chiropractor St Paul will discuss your health and goals for chiropodist massage therapy.
Traditionally, chiropractic practice involves chiropractic massage, which is typically performed with the client unclothed, but you may undress to your own comfort level. You will always be draped with a sheet and only the area being treated will be undraped. However, keep in mind that for many conditions, working directly on your skin will provide you with the best possible treatments.
Once a treatment protocol is determined to reach your goals in massage therapy and chiropractic care, your message will begin. A variety of massage tools such as handheld massagers, foam rollers, or massage balls may be utilized to enhance the effectiveness of the treatments, alongside chiropractic techniques. A light oil or gel will still be used to avoid excessive friction to the skin, ensuring a smooth and comfortable experience.
During a chiropractic adjustment and massage therapy session, close your eyes and allow yourself to relax as completely as possible. Focus your attention on breathing slowly and deeply, enhancing the effects of the chiropractic adjustment.
Results may be noticed within the sessions of chiropractic care and massage therapist treatments will continue after the session has ended. Following a chiropractor massage, it is important to take care of your spinal health and drink plenty of water to help flush out any toxins that have been released from your soft tissue during spinal chiropractic massage therapy and other treatments.
