Massage Therapy Allen Texas

Massage Therapy

There is a large range of health conditions that massage therapy can effectively alleviate, the most common being stress-related tension. At McDermott Chiropractic, our skilled and licensed massage therapists (LMTs) specialize in treating various conditions, as well as providing relief for conditions related to soft tissue and joint dysfunction.

Massage therapy is part of your overall chiropractic plan and involves manipulating the muscles and other soft tissues of the body which are directly connected to the spine. Our goal is pain management and rehabilitation.

Massage therapy relieves back pain by undoing painful muscle spasms, increasing blood flow to the muscles to nourish cells and speed tissue repair. Massage therapy increases circulation of the lymphatic system to flush out waste products that have built up in the tissues and reduces inflammation, softening and breaking up scar tissue and adhesions.

There are different methods of massage therapy.  Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but more pressure is used while kneading and manipulating the deeper muscles and tendons releasing chronic muscle tension. 

Deep tissue massage therapy is also used in sports injury treatments. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).

Massage therapy is good for treating back pain caused by muscle spasms or chronic muscular tension.  The pain relief provided by massage therapy from loosening of muscles is augmented by the benefits of contact with the skin, which seems to have a great influence on mood and pain.

A study in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that people’s blood pressure fell after a single 45 to 60 minute deep tissue massage. Additionally, a 2010 meta-analysis in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry found that massage modalities like deep tissue reduce stress hormone levels and heart rate while boosting mood and relaxation by triggering the release of oxytocin and serotonin.
