Why Chiropractic Massage is a Great Solution for Pain Relief
If you’re in pain, it’s important to get your aches under control. Even seemingly minor pains can disrupt your quality of life, and the well-being of your pets and animal companions as well. Fortunately, chiropractors can help and Dr. Keith Billstein at Motion Wellness Center can provide chiropractic massage treatment in Princeton and Anoka for both animals and people.
Treat Pain Without Relying on Medications
Crucially, chiropractic care is hands-on care, meaning it doesn’t rely on medications. Medications can block pain signals, thus masking aches, but often they fail to address the underlying problems that are actually causing the pain. As a result, when the medications wear off, the pain will frequently return, leaving people and pets suffering.
Pain medications can be expensive and hard to obtain. Over time, they may even lose their effectiveness because the body will frequently build up immunity. Sometimes, new medications can provide relief, but they too may someday become ineffective. Other times, patients may increase their dosages of currently used medications, but for some, this can raise the risks of addiction and dependency.
It's better to address the underlying issues that are causing pain in the first place. Fortunately, chiropractic treatment, including spinal adjustments and chiropractic massages, may effectively address underlying problems. Need chiropractic massage treatment in Princeton and Anoka?

Using Chiropractic Massages to Treat Pain
Pain is often the result of muscle tension. For example, tension in the neck muscles might exert tension on muscles in the face, which could produce jaw pain and headaches. By using massage therapy to address tension in the neck muscles, it may be possible to relieve both headaches and jaw pain.
If you or your animal companions are suffering muscle tension in the back, it could result in pain not just in the back, but also in the limbs, neck, and face. Chiropractic massages can be used to relieve muscle tension, thus delivering pain relief throughout the body. Since the root cause of your pain is being addressed (namely muscle tension), the relief is often long-lasting.
Other chiropractic treatment methods can also be used alongside massage therapy to deliver even longer-lasting pain relief. Popular treatment methods include spinal manipulation and a variety of exercises and stretching routines that can reduce muscle tension and thus pain.
