HAVE PAIN BUT AFRAID OF AN ADJUSTMENT? MAYBE AN ADJUSTMENT JUST ISN'T WHAT WORKS FOR YOU.
Massage therapy is a natural, non-invasive approach to treating and relieving musculoskeletal pain for many patients. At Dallas Chiropractic Metrics, we use massage therapy to compliment our chiropractic care techniques or help treat patients who are afraid of or unable to receive a chiropractic adjustment. Our team will create a unique treatment plan tailored for each individual patient based on health history, level and location of pain or injury. Massage is often beneficial in providing pain relief, rehabilitating sports injuries, reducing stress, increasing relaxation, addressing anxiety and depression, and aiding general wellness. Massage therapy may also be recommended to help patients cope with the pain and stress of cancer, heart disease, stomach problems, fibromyalgia or other health conditions.
MASSAGE THERAPY AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO ADDICTIVE PAIN MEDICATIONS?
As the United States struggles with the Opioid Epidemic and its devastating effects on lives, society and the U.S. economy, it's important to consider non-invasive, alternative therapies as a method of pain relief. Two out of three drug overdose deaths in the U.S. in 2018 involved an opioid. Overdoses involving opioids killed nearly 47,000 people in 2018, and 32% of those deaths involved prescription opioids.
According to a recent economic modeling analysis, providing massage therapy as a tool for pain management instead of opioid medication could reduce social and economic costs to the American economy associated with early death, treatment and crime prevention by up to $25.99 billion annually. As many as 5 million patients in the U.S. could benefit from massage therapy and potentially reduce the number of people with an addiction disorder by 111,137 people per year.
