If you work in an office, chances are that you find sitting in the same position for hours on end fairly uncomfortable. Do you find yourself getting stiff, so you get up and stretch on a regular basis? Does your mind wander because of your discomfort, and do you find it hard to stay motivated on your tasks? These problems and more can occur when your work space isn’t working for you as an individual and you may be one of many people who would benefit from something called ergonomics.
Most people think that getting a massage is purely for relaxation purposes and whilst it certainly is a very valuable tool for helping to relieve stress and anxiety, it has far wider benefits. Massage therapy is actually an ancient treatment that dates back thousands of years. Today, it is widely used in varying capacities, including as a core technique by chiropractors. This is because chiropractors specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. These principally affect the muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, nerves and other supporting structures inside the body. Chiropractors may use a variety of different massage therapy techniques depending on the needs of the individual patient.
