Massage, when it is combined with chiropractic care can be an unbeatable team.

Many practice members ask about the value of massage in combination with their chiropractic care. While chiropractic care focuses on the relationship between the spine and its impact on the nervous system, massage focuses on the muscle component. Both disciplines work together.

Massage Sessions

Sessions with our massage therapist can be just what you would expect in some circumstances, a relaxing light rub down or they can be of the more deeper tissue variety. This will depend on what you and the chiropractor determine is the best course of action to take. Additionally, our massage therapist is trained in performing a controlled stretching technique called PNF or proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation. This will be done with the massage therapist, if appropriate after recommendations are made from the chiropractor and it is much more effective than simple stretching. The assisted stretching and massage when combined with chiropractic care can help shorten the time to achieve great results and make you feel much looser and more flexible.

Chiropractic First

Massage therapy feels good. If you’re tempted to choose massage over your chiropractic care, keep in mind that your nervous system-the focus of your chiropractic care-controls muscles. If you must choose one or the other, choose chiropractic. Because as helpful as massage therapy can be, ultimately the integrity of your nervous system is more important.
