Start on the road toward recovery today! Intersegmental traction massage is a great way to do just that. Intersegmental traction massage is delivered through the use of a traction table; during its application, you’ll be asked to lie down on your back. Rollers are just underneath the surface of the table. These rollers are adjusted, depending on your condition and weight, to gently and specifically elongate and stretch your spinal joints and muscles. Intersegmental traction massage therapy in Altamonte Springs can reduce and prevent muscle spasms and begin to re-establish a normal range of motion for the joints in the spine. When your muscles are more relaxed, your vertebrae can begin to move normally; this fluid range of motion can prevent further injury and reduce your chances of arthritis later in life.
Altamonte Springs massage therapy, under the direct supervision of Dr. Ross, can provide you with the most sophisticated, comprehensive chiropractic care. Recent studies have shown that, when used in the context of chiropractic care, massage therapy can be especially effective in relieving pain, "coaxing" vertebrae and supporting muscles into alignment, and rehabilitating sports injuries. On top of that, massage therapy is tremendously useful in relieving everyday stress — and who couldn’t use a little stress alleviation from time to time?
