If you are suffering from back pain or neck pain, our Atlanta chiropractor Dr. Simon understands just how frustrating and life-altering this pain can be. Whether your pain is due to a recent accident injury or a chronic condition, you may be a good candidate for hydro massage. Hydro massage is a specialized type of therapeutic massage that uses customizable water pressure to target stiff, sore muscles in the neck, shoulder, mid-back and lower back. This cutting-edge treatment is a natural complement to chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy. Hydro massage delivers important physiological and psychological effects for the body. The massage treatment releases tension trapped deep within the body’s muscles and soft tissues. This naturally relieves pain and restores a fuller range of mobility back to the body after injury, in addition to reducing stress.

During a hydro massage treatment session, you will lie on a comfortable massage table that provides full spinal support for proper alignment. Our supportive headrest cushions the head for correct neck position. Inside the sealed table, water moves in specific therapeutic directions to target your sore, stiff muscles. Our Atlanta chiropractor Dr. Simon will program the table for precise levels of water pressure, temperature and direction. The heat and pressure from the water is not only soothing and relaxing, but also beneficial for your back or neck pain. Hydro massage increases circulation, flushing out toxins that can block the healing process and delivering fresh, nutrient-rich blood to support tissue repair.
Hydro massage at Century Center Chiropractic is a natural complement to chiropractic care and physical therapy. If you have recently sustained a sports injury, car accident injury, or workplace injury, hydro massage can help bring a fuller range of motion back to the body. After an injury, the body will naturally tense up and adjust its movements in an effort to minimize pain and reduce weight on the injured area. Hydro massage helps to relax the muscles and release trapped tension as the body heals itself. This adjustment helps to bring a fuller range of motion to the back following injuries that would otherwise lead to mobility restrictions.
For patients who are receiving chiropractic adjustments or physical therapy treatments, Dr. Simon may recommend a water massage before or after treatment. Prior to a chiropractic adjustment, the hydro massage will relax and warm the muscles, making them 1more supple and less tense. Massage after physiotherapy exercises relaxes the muscles and also dilates the blood vessels, allowing them to circulate through the body more efficiently. Increasing circulation relieves muscles tensions, reduces soreness, and accelerates the recovery process. Your heart rate and breathing rates will also lower as you enter a state of deep relaxation during the hydro massage.
