FAQs About Massage Therapy in Scottsdale

If you are new to chiropractic care and massage therapy, we understand you have questions about the process. Dr. Daniel Secrest, DC, aims to answer your massage therapy questions so you enter our care feeling confident and comfortable. Some of the most common massage therapy questions we are asked include:

How can massage therapy alleviate pain or tension?

Massage therapy loosens your muscle tissue by gentle, yet strong kneading of the area. This breaks up any scar tissue in the muscles from past injuries that is contributing to pain and tension. Massage therapy also helps to improve circulation to the area to reduce inflammation and promote healing of the tissues.

Can massage therapy alleviate my pain due to a sports injury?

If your sports injury is muscular related such as muscle strain, massage therapy helps your body repair the injury by bringing nutrient-rich blood to the area and speeding up the removal of toxins. If your injury is joint related, massage therapy focuses on the muscles surrounding the injured joint. We are able to keep the area loose and flexible to restore your range of motion.

What are different types of massage therapy?

We offer Swedish, which is an all-over relaxation massage; deep tissue which targets the deeper layers of tense muscle tissue; sports to alleviate discomfort in overworked muscles and to keep you flexible; chair for those who are uncomfortable lying down such as during pregnancy.

How can chiropractic care and massage therapy work to alleviate tension in my body?

Chiropractic care focuses on the spine and the joints. Dr. Secrest, DC, adjusts your back and joints into a healthy, pain-free alignment. This positioning is improved with massage therapy to train the muscles to support a healthy positioning and restore muscular balance.
