Chiropractic care and massage therapy are both well known commodities. As a chiropractor, my main focus is the neuroskelatal system and the joints, while massage interests itself with the muscles. Typically, the public is exposed to one or the other forms of treatment.
For more than a five years now, we have utilized a treatment protocol which we call our Signature Service. This involves a focused massage (typically 30 minutes) of a region(s) of particular clinical concern, followed by chiropractic adjustment to those same regions. The effect is to first address the muscular and myofascial components (superficial), and then the skeletal/nervous components (deep) in succession. Working deeper into the issues that are causing pain and dysfunction are akin to peeling layers of an onion; getting down to what is truly at the root of the problem.
It is my professional opinion, that chiropractic adjustments alone can (in some cases) be less effective than chiropractic adjustments with massage therapy incorporated.
If you haven’t tried massage and chiropractic care, you owe it to yourself to try it soon. Call our office today! 330-877-3177
