How Massage Can Help

San Angelo TX Massage therapyTherapeutic massage has been used for millennia as a natural pain relief solution. We use massage therapy in our San Angelo office, as it works great in conjunction with the chiropractic care that Dr. Pittman provides. Massage treatment does much more than just feel great. It also offers many positive effects as well. Some are physical and others are psychological, and here are medically documented benefits:

  • Pain reduction (back, neck, shoulder, legs, arm, and headache pain)
  • Enhanced range of motion and flexibility
  • Better cardiovascular function
  • Improved immune system function
  • Enhanced sports performance
  • Decreased depression or anxiety
  • Increased levels of energy
  • Lower levels of fatigue
  • Easier time getting and staying asleep
  • Easier labor and delivery for expecting mothers
  • Fewer stretch marks
  • Less scar tissue

Benefits such as these have been found to be particularly helpful for individuals who suffer with chronic conditions such as arthritis and asthma. Therapeutic massage has also proven advantageous for burn injury patients, people with higher than healthy blood pressure, and women who suffer from premenstrual syndrome. Even preterm infants have shown benefits with massage therapy as they have improved levels of weight gain.
