Massage Therapy Q&A

What is massage therapy?

If blood circulation to your muscles is impaired, they can get sore and painful. Massage therapy is the practice of manually manipulating your soft tissues and muscles to relieve stress, strain, soreness, pain, knots, and tension. It helps break up lactic acid that has built up over time and restores proper circulation.

What conditions does massage therapy treat?

In addition to helping you relax, massage therapy is an effective way to treat the following conditions:

  • Chronic pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sciatica
  • Recurrent headaches
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Hip pain
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

Talk to Dr. Bieganski, DC, about your needs and concerns so he can customize your massage.

What are the benefits of massage therapy?

Massage therapy is the perfect complement to chiropractic treatment because massage helps to:

  • Increase range of motion
  • Improve flexibility
  • Reduce chronic pain
  • Relieve neck soreness
  • Minimize shoulder tension
  • Alleviate headaches and migraines
  • Increase circulation
  • Decrease inflammation

After Dr. Bieganski, DC, realigns your spine, he works out the tension in your muscles and soft tissues to prevent the pain from returning.

What are the different types of massage therapy?

Depending on your health needs and concerns, Dr. Bieganski, DC, can customize your therapy using one or a combination of these techniques:

  • Swedish: alleviates muscle fatigue from sports or activity
  • Hot stone: relaxes and relieves tension
  • Deep tissue: minimizes knots, strains, and muscle tightness
  • Sports: improves flexibility to help prevent injuries
  • Shiatsu: treats sciatica and joint pain from arthritis
  • Pregnancy: alleviates the specific pains associated with pregnancy

Most massages last between 30 and 90 minutes, so they’re easy to schedule on your lunch break, after work, or while you’re out running errands.

How many massage therapy sessions do I need?

It depends on the severity of your muscle tension. If you’re experiencing mild symptoms, Dr. Bieganski, DC, may recommend one or two sessions. If, however, you’re working with him to eradicate chronic pain, sciatica, or other similar issues, you may see the best results with a series of massage appointments. During your consultation, he’ll customize a plan to meet your unique goals and needs, so you’ll know exactly what to expect.
