Everett chiropractors Dr. Mike and Lisa Ilyankoff announced that a new licensed massage therapist has joined their practice, Cornerstone Chiropractic. Lisa has over eight years of experience providing deep tissue massage therapy to treat back pain, neck pain, headaches and car accident injuries, including whiplash. Deep tissue massage therapy is also effective for managing pain associated with chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia and sciatica.
"We are excited to welcome our newest massage therapist to Cornerstone Chiropractic," said Dr. Lisa Ilyankoff. "Massage therapy is a natural complement to chiropractic adjustments, providing enhanced pain relief by releasing tension trapped deep within the muscles and the body's connective tissues. Massaging sore and tight muscles is essential to relieving pain and speeding the injury rehabilitation process."
Massage improves circulation, delivering fresh, oxygen-rich blood to the muscles. This flushes out toxins and lactic acid from the muscles, which helps the body heal faster after injury. Research studies show that massage lowers cortisol levels and increases endorphin levels for natural pain relief.
"Massage produce important physiological changes within the body," said Dr. Mike Ilyankoff. "Releasing tension from the muscles helps them relax and lengthen, which is important for the body's recovery process after an injury. Our massage therapist's substantial experience and intuitive touch will make a significant difference for patients with a chronic pain condition or an injury like whiplash."
Dr. Mike and Lisa Ilyankoff work closely with the practice's massage therapy team to integrate massage therapy with chiropractic care. Each treatment session is tailored to a patient's specific pain management needs.
"Customized, personalized care is essential to effective pain management," said Dr. Lisa Ilyankoff. "By working closely with our massage therapist, we ensure that all treatments support a patient's long-term health. We find that this integrated approach to care delivers optimal results for our patients."
Massage treatment sessions typically last between 50 and 55 minutes, depending on a patient's pain management needs. For information about the clinic visit: http://cornerchiro.com/.
