Is it better to get a massage or chiropractic adjustment first?


The answer to this question may depend on the specific needs and goals of the individual. Both massage therapy and chiropractic care can be beneficial for improving musculoskeletal health and reducing pain and discomfort.

Massage therapy can be helpful for reducing muscle tension, increasing blood flow, and promoting relaxation. Chiropractic care can help to realign the spine and improve joint function, which can help to reduce pain and improve mobility.

In some cases, it may be beneficial to receive massage therapy prior to a chiropractic adjustment. This can help to loosen up the muscles and prepare the body for the adjustment, making it easier for the chiropractor to perform the adjustment and reducing the risk of discomfort or injury.

However, in other cases, it may be more beneficial to receive chiropractic care first, particularly if there is a specific joint or spinal issue that needs to be addressed. Your chiropractor or massage therapist can provide guidance on the best approach for your individual needs.
