Most conditions and injuries cause inflammation or tension as well as pain, so we offer custom treatment plans and therapeutic techniques that relieve pain while promoting healing and restoring balance to the whole body. Our massage therapy and chiropractic teams work together to create personalized treatment plans for each and every patient. If your treatment plan includes massage therapy, you’ll enjoy the benefits of an ancient therapeutic approach that is designed to heal and relieve.
How Massage Therapy Complements Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care is a holistic health approach that works best when it’s integrated into a healthier overall routine. If you’re seeking chiropractic care for an injury or condition that includes inflammation, scar tissue, muscle tension, or weakness, we may add massage therapy to your treatment plan too. Massage therapy allows us to reduce inflammation and restriction in the soft tissue while promoting blood flow and energy balance. When your muscles are tense or inflamed, they cannot regenerate quickly enough to restore mobility and prevent pain. If you’re in chronic pain, you may need massage therapy to loosen your muscles and ligaments while restoring blood flow to the body parts that need to heal the most. We use massage therapy to rebalance the body and encourage its own healing processes.

- Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Herniated Discs
- Tension Headaches and Migraines
- Auto Accident Injuries
- Pregnancy and Post-Natal Recovery
- Sports Injuries
- Workplace Injuries
Types of Massage Therapy We Offer for the Surrounding Communities of Wyoming, Grand Rapids, and Kentwood, MI
We offer a variety of therapeutic massage techniques at Chiropractic First. Your own massage therapy regimen will depend on your symptoms, the pace of your progress, and any lifestyle factors that contribute to your pain or stiffness. For example, patients with posture-related neck and shoulder pain may need deep stimulation of the underlying tissue before spinal manipulations will work. Other patients may have anxiety-related tension, which responds to massage therapy that loosens up the restricted tissue and releases anxiety-busting endorphins.
Here are some of the therapeutic massages we offer at Chiropractic First:
- Swedish Massage – A common, whole-body massage that relaxes the muscles and joints to allow the body to heal properly
- Deep Tissue Massage – A more intensive, forceful massage that stimulates deeper, underlying muscles and ligaments to reduce chronic tightness, or to promote blood flow and tissue regeneration after traumatic injuries
- Pre- and Post-Natal Massage Therapy – Pregnancy and childbirth cause a variety of physical changes and challenges, and our massage therapist is happy to work with expectant patients to help decrease swelling, reduce anxiety, relieve pain, and stretch and strengthen muscles that are under additional stress
