Backsmart Wellness Center Combines Chiropractic Care and Massage Therapy

EDISON, N.J., April 24, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Backsmart Wellness Center utilizes a combination of chiropractic care and massage therapy to help patients in the Edison area reduce pain and enjoy increased health.

When it comes to helping patients achieve optimum health, Backsmart Wellness Center knows exactly what it takes to reduce pain and discomfort. Located in Edison, the clinic combines traditional chiropractic adjustments with massage therapy to offer a complete approach to healing.

“When the spine is misaligned, the entire body can exhibit symptoms,” explains Dr. Michael Lagana. “Restricted mobility, central nervous system interference, and chronic headaches are all indicators that something is off in the spinal area. But that isn’t all that can happen when a patient is injured in an accident or other situation.”

“What we do at the center is combine two different treatments together: chiropractic adjustment and massage therapy. And there’s a reason for this,” he continues. “Doing so helps ensure that we are targeting both the spinal misalignment and any muscular issues associated with the patient’s discomfort.”

For most patients, the basic benefits of massage therapy include decreased muscle tension and an overall sense of relaxation. Chiropractic adjustment can help relieve pain, increase joint mobility, reduce spinal issues, and much more.

According to Dr. Lagana, the reason why this process is effective is that it includes both systems of the body that can be injured in an incident—the spine and the muscular system.

“Tense muscles can contract and shorten, which limits range of movement. The body instinctively tries to make up for the tension, which can actually push the spine back into misalignment,” says Lagana. “By making sure we are targeting both facets at the start, we can ensure that the treatment works.”

According to medical research, this combination is actually quite sound. Massage has long been known to reduce inflammation, increase oxygen flow, and overall relax the body to reduce pain and tension. In fact, certain varieties have been used for centuries. In addition, proper spine alignment can help fend off many different ailments, such as migraines and chronic pain.

For patients, Backsmart Wellness Center offers patients a variety of different massage options, too. Deep tissue, sports injury, Swedish, neuromuscular and pre-natal services are available from licensed, certified massage therapists, Leah Kleiner, Joanne Rinna Goloyugo and Rose Zhou. A certified Reiki Master, Bunnie Rogers, is also onsite for those interested in the process.
