Active Health and Wellness Center provides patients with therapeutic massage in our South Bend location. Massage therapy is often thought of as a luxury or special treat. Actually, massage offers many health benefits to patients, from reducing muscle tension and chronic pain to an increasing range of motion and enhancing exercise performance, to name just a few. Under the guidance of Dr. Lisa Meyers, therapeutic massage is an extremely beneficial part of each patient’s treatment plan.
Chiropractic treatment and massage therapy complement each other. Deep tissue therapeutic massage can relax muscles to make adjustments more effective, and also to prevent muscles from tightening up and moving the patient’s structure back out of alignment. A release of stress through therapeutic massage can help relieve pain caused by chronic tension. In the case of injuries, massage therapy can stimulate the immune system and also increase blood flow to the affected area to promote healing.
Whether you are seeking treatment for neck or back pain, headaches, or a sports injury, massage works with other treatment plan components to provide pain relief and speed the healing process. All treatment plans begin with a careful evaluation by Dr. Meyers to determine the cause of pain. The full course of treatment may include chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy, deep tissue therapeutic massage, ultrasound, and electrical muscle stimulation. Further treatment with therapeutic stretching and exercise rehabilitation results in proper biomechanics, which reduces most musculoskeletal problems in our patients.
Dr. Meyers and her staff are trained in therapeutic massage, offering patient-specific treatment tailored to your condition. Because Active Health and Wellness Center’s facility has grown in the last 20 years to accommodate the needs of our patients, we have multiple treatments and examination rooms, in-house X-ray technology, traction roller tables, massage chairs, and large physical therapy and exercise rehabilitation room. Our patients benefit from receiving all of their care at one convenient location.
We truly care about each and every patient at Active Health and Wellness Center and work one-on-one to ensure that you are comfortable with each aspect of your care. We want the healing and relaxation you experience through our therapies to continue as you maintain your health and the best of pain-free living.
