Chiropractic is a primary care profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and management of conditions relating to joints, muscles, tendons, discs and nerves within the body.
Chiropractors use a biopsychosocial model for patient care, meaning not only do chiropractors assess movement of the body, they also consider lifestyle stresses that can impact upon it.
During periods of stress on the body muscles can create trigger points and tension. Having a regular massage can optimise tissue pliability, which may reduce injuries and improve mobility.
The effect of massage is that by increasing oxygen to the blood it helps filter out the different type of toxins that build up in the body such as lactic acid, uric acid and other metabolic waste.
