Chiropractic Massage

At USA Health and Therapy, we have a licensed massage therapist who performs a therapeutic massage or chiropractic massage. He works in conjunction with Dr. Singer to select the type of massage to be delivered and what areas of the body need to be targeted. During a therapeutic massage, the soft tissues and muscles of the body are manually manipulated. There are a wide variety of chiropractic massages depending if the purpose is to restore, relax or prevent injury versus treating an already injured muscle or joint. Chiropractic massages have many advantages including:

  • Massage calms the nervous system and promotes a sense of relaxation and well being by releasing endorphins, the body’s natural pain killer.
  • Massage reduces tension and anxiety.
  • Massage improves blood circulation, which delivers oxygen and nutrients to the cells.
  • Massage stimulates the lymphatic system, which carries away the body’s waste products.
  • Massage prevents and relieves muscles, cramps and spasms.
  • Massage therapy can help with pain management in conditions such as arthritis, sciatica, migraines, fibromyalgia, depression and muscle spasms.
  • Massage can lower blood pressure and reduce anxiety.

Good nutrition, training, mental preparation and dealing with sports injuries are just a few of the challenges that every athlete faces. At his chiropractic clinic in Oakland Park, FL, Dr. Singer offers not only the best in standard chiropractic care but also the best in sports chiropractic care.

A sports massage is a specialized type of massage therapy that is designed to optimize athletic performance, lessen recovery time, increase flexibility, and prevent a sports injuries. The massage can be performed before an athletic event to stimulate blood flow, prevent injury and strain, and warm up muscles. A sports massage can also be conducted after an athletic activity to reduce the amount of recovery time that the body needs and lessen the possibility of cramping. For athletes that have sustained a sports injury, a massage focuses on the injury to relieve pain, reduce swelling and cut down on healing time. A sports massage can include a variety of techniques, such as pressure-point manipulation, moving the joints and stretching the muscles, water or ice massage, and the application of heat or friction.

  • " Have been adjusted by over 50 chiros in my life and Dr Craig is right up there with the best. His method of relaxing each client (hydro-jet-bed then massage) before the adjustment really helps. There is also a physical therapist with his own therapy room to help get your range of motion back like he did for me. VERY REASONABLE pricing and VERY flexible hours SO PLEASE be nice and try to avoid his lunch hour so he and his staff can eat because the poor guy refuses to say no. "
