Dealing with an injury is never pleasant, and no matter how you sustained it, you want to recover as quickly as possible. Your doctor may prescribe physical therapy and massage to help you recover, and a luxury massage chair could be extremely beneficial as you attempt to heal a torn muscle or strained ligament. At The World’s Best Massage Chairs (WBMC), we want our customers to get the most of their new chair, and if you’ve been injured, a chair could be the key to a quicker recovery.
Improving Circulation and Mobility
Massage can provide many benefits, and when it comes to injured muscles, it’s important to promote proper circulation and mobility as the muscle heals. You may not be able to move your shoulder or knee too much at first, but with regular massage therapy, you can restore blood flow and tissue repair at the injured site. It’s important to speak with your doctor about whether or not using a massage chair will benefit you, but if he or she gives you the go-ahead, you may find that you experience less pain and better circulation and mobility in a shorter amount of time.
Shorten Recovery Time
Regular massage can also help shorten your recovery time following an injury. Lactic acid builds up in the muscles after use, and massage can flush that acid away and help your muscles heal faster. This can also be beneficial once you’re back on your feet and exercising regularly, and can also help you avoid re-injuring the same muscle.
If your injury involves a broken bone, you’ll have to wait until the bone is healed before you can be active once again. This sedentary period can lead to stiffness and soreness in the muscles surrounding the affected bone, and massage can help restore movement so that you can get back to doing the things you love. Any bruises associated with the broken bone can also be healed by using massage to stretch the connective tissue in the affected area.
Picking Your Massage Type
Your doctor may recommend that you visit a massage therapist on a regular basis until you’re fully healed, and while you want to heed your doctor’s advice, you could give yourself an advantage by adding a massage chair to your home. If your injury keeps you from driving, you’ll have to find transportation to the therapist’s location. With a new chair, you can use it whenever you want or whenever you need to. If you’re recovering during the colder months of the year, your chair will save you from having to go out in inclement weather to receive treatment.
However, it’s important to know which massage will benefit you the most. Will Swedish massage be the best, or will you heal better with Shiatsu techniques? Our inventory of chairs offers those options and more, and you can program your chair’s presets to provide the right amount of pressure with overworking your muscles.
If you’re healing from an injury and you feel that a massage chair could help you, speak with your doctor and then find your new model at WBMC!
