Unlike other massage places that typically provide the same cookie-cutter service, Park Forest Chiropractic is problem-focused and solution-oriented. Usually clients come seeking relief for a specific condition such as neck, shoulder, back and/or sciatic pain. Fortunately, these are the most common and easily treated conditions.
Deep tissue massage is intended to relieve tension within the connective tissue (called fascia) and the deep muscles of the body. Not to be confused with “deep pressure”, deep tissue starts with light compression and progressively gets deeper, ultimately removing tension from the fascia and interconnected muscular structures.
Sports massage addresses trigger points and adhesions (dense collections of scar tissue) in the muscle that hinder one’s ability to function at an optimal level. Sports-related pain conditions also take away the mental edge needed for competition, often leaving athletes discouraged or frustrated. Sports massage relieves pain and has been clinically proven to improve athletic performance.
