Can Deep Tissue Massage Help with Poor Posture?

Back massageHave you ever found yourself slouching at your desk or hunching over your phone for hours? Poor posture can cause pain, and even long-term health issues. Fortunately, there are several methods to help correct it, including deep tissue massage.

What Is It?

Deep tissue massage is a therapeutic technique that involves applying firm pressure to the deeper layers of muscle and fascia. This type of massage can help release tension and knots that may contribute to poor posture. When our muscles are tight and inflexible, they can pull our bodies into improper positions.

How Does It Help?

Deep tissue massage can help lengthen and loosen these muscles, allowing us to stand and sit taller and straighter. In addition to releasing muscle tension, deep tissue massage can also improve muscle flexibility and joint mobility. This can further aid in correcting poor posture.

A Complement to Chiropractic Care

Dr Jeff (Chiropractor) looks at the whole body and how it functions together to optimise health. He can identify underlying musculoskeletal imbalances that may contribute to poor posture, and recommend a personalised care plan that may include deep tissue massage, as well as other modalities such as spinal adjustments and exercises.
