Aches and tension caused by injuries or overuse of certain parts of your body can often be eased and relieved with the best deep tissue massage Baton Rouge has, delivered at Ozark Chiropractic clinic.

You may have had massages in the past to relieve aches and pains in muscles, or just to relax  yourself. Deep tissue massage is different to a standard massage for a number of reasons.

Deep Tissue Massage Baton Rouge

It’s effective

Where regular massages just gently manipulate the muscles of your body, deep tissue massage works – as the name implies – at a deeper level. More pressure is used than in other massage practices, and multiple layers of tissue are affected by the motions and pressure applied. This allows the massage to be more effective at a deeper level within your body.

The tendons and ligaments will be affected by the massage, and adhesions within your muscle and other tissues can be broken up. This is a beneficial process, as these adhesions are a type of scar tissue that can cause pain, inflammation and stiffness in your muscles and joints.

Breaking it up allows the body to heal properly and enables you to move with ease again. From head to toe, your body can be effectively massaged for relief of aches and pains including stiff necks, sore elbows, back pain, and much more.

Pain with Deep tissue massage Baton Rouge

While deep tissue massage will help reduce pain in your body, there can be a misconception that the process itself is painful. The pressure applied during the massage is much greater than a regular massage, but not enough to be painful. As the areas being treated are often injured, there is likely to be a small amount of discomfort, but as we care about the wellbeing of our patients, we’ll try to keep this to a minimum.

If at any stage you need us to stop or reduce the pressure, we’re more than happy to oblige.

Other benefits of deep tissue massage

The deep tissue massage Baton Rouge residents receive will certainly help with conditions like tennis elbow, pain from arthritis and other similar problems, but there is also a wider range of benefits.

Massage can reduce the level of stress hormones along with lowering heart rate and blood pressure, improving your overall wellness at the same time as loosening your muscles and freeing your joints.

Getting the best results

Deep tissue massage Baton Rouge experts agree that no massage should be performed over wounds, infected skin, or bruises. Additionally, patients with fragile bones or recent bone injuries and other conditions may need to avoid deep tissue massage.

After the treatment, you may feel sore for a short period of time, but this will soon pass and you’ll feel the benefits that deep tissue massage provides.
