Massage Therapy at YourBack Chiropractic

Jason massaging womans neckMassage is more than spending a day in the spa. YourBack Chiropractic offers massage services that help your body heal naturally. You can receive massage therapy as part of your overall chiropractic care or as a standalone treatment. Our massage therapist uses different techniques that set him apart from what you will find at a spa, yet we have designed our practice to feel more like a relaxed, soothing, tranquil setting than a medical office.

Retraining Your Spine

Long-standing spinal problems are accompanied by ingrained muscle patterns. Muscle spasms and scar tissue are often involved. By augmenting your chiropractic care with massage therapy, these muscle and soft tissue problems can be addressed. This can help speed your recovery and enhance the retraining of your spine.

Types of Massage

There are many different kinds of massage. They all involve systematically working the muscles and other soft tissues of the body to optimize the functioning of the various bodily systems. Massage can enhance your vitality and sense of well-being. Massage has been shown to…

  • Reduce the development of muscular patterning
  • Improve posture and re-balance your body/mind
  • Relieve pain in your muscles and joints
  • Ease constipation, gas and heartburn
  • Promote general relaxation
  • Stimulate intestinal movement
  • Eliminate excess fluid retention

Plus, it just feels good!

How Does it Help?

Our massage therapist uses microcurrent point stimulation that is a type of needleless acupuncture. Delivering a low amp, low voltage electrical stimulation to certain points in the body helps with natural healing. Results of chiropractic care are enhanced with our massage therapy, including function and pain reduction. When performed outside of chiropractic care, massage removes toxins from your body, promotes proper blood flow, and much more.

Microcurrent point stimulation (MPS) is one of the massage techniques that we use at our Mississauga practice. It is used in many fields of medicine, such as physical therapy. The technique works by applying a low level of electrical to certain points in the body, such as trigger points, and it is most often recommended for relieving pain, stiffness, limited range of motion, and discomfort. MPS works by relieving tension in the muscles that contributes to misalignments and puts stress on joints and other tissues. Most patients feel the positive effects immediately after the treatment.

Can Anyone Have Massage Therapy?

Our massage therapist uses several techniques for treatment. If MPS is not right for you, he develops a plan of care that targets problem areas in your body. Massage therapy is safe for people of all ages, including newborns, children, teens, adults, and seniors, including women who are pregnant.
Does MPS Hurt?

The sensation of MPS therapy is similar to what you feel during acupuncture. Most patients find the treatment to be relaxing and soothing.
What Can Be Treated with MPS?

MPS is recommended for people with:

  • Concussions
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Stiffness
  • Scar pain

  • Post-surgical pain
  • Stress and tension
  • Leg, knee, ankle, and foot pain
  • Hip pain
  • Arm, hand, wrist, and shoulder pain

How Does MPS Help with Scars?

Scars form when you have an injury to your skin, including incisions from surgery. In response to the injury, your body produces collagen fibers very quickly. These fibers are formed in a somewhat random and chaotic manner. This is why your scars have a different texture ad color than the surrounding skin. Often times, scars form in a way that affects range of motion. When you try to use the affected area, you may experience discomfort. MPS restructures the collagen fibers to revise the scar and reduce your discomfort. You may need a series of MPS treatments for your scar.
