Carson Chiropractic Team Heals Knots

Will Massage Therapy and Chiropractic Care in Carson Help Unravel Knots?

The short answer is yes, both massage therapy and chiropractic care will relieve you of any knots that are making your life uncomfortable. Before describing how our medical professionals alleviate patients’ knots, let us first find the answer to this seemingly simple question: what are knots?

Defining A Knot

While there is a type of knot that measures the speed of boats, the variety we are discussing is the type that builds in our muscles and causes discomfort. Commonly found in the back and neck, knots form when muscles tighten and remain that way even while they are not in use. Common reasons they form are:

  • Overuse or injury
  • Poor posture
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Unhealthy diet
  • Dehydration
  • Stress
  • Anxiety

If you feel a tense, almost ball-like buildup in any of your muscles and resonate with anything listed above, you have now determined what you are feeling and what caused it!

Next step: get rid of your knots!

How Our South Bay Chiropractors and Massage Therapists Can Help

Luckily for you Marina Sports Medicine offers two services that treat knots: massage therapy and chiropractic care. Continue reading to learn how both soften your muscles and loosen up your entire body.

Massage Therapy

Since massage therapy improves the body’s circulation and encourages blood flow, a massage will effectively loosen up your muscles’ knots. It will take time, but eventually you will notice how massages return your muscles to their proper form. 

Chiropractic Care

One of the main ailments our chiropractors in South Bay heal is a limited range of motion. When your muscles crumble up into a rock-hard ball, you are going to suffer from this. Marina Sports Medicine’s chiropractic team will work towards getting your range of motion back and adjust your joints utilizing its spinal manipulation methods. You also have the benefit of being told how you can soften your muscles on your own time with the at-home exercises our chiropractors will teach you.
