Massage Therapy

Come RELAX with an amazing medical massage!

My Approach

Massage is available in several forms such as relaxation, deep tissue, trigger point therapy, prenatal, neuromuscular or myofascial release. All of our massages are overseen by the doctor to provide the best treatment plan to meet your needs.

The massage therapist can promote faster healing of soft tissue injuries such as pulled muscles, sprain/strain or swelling. Some medical conditions that massage therapy can help are: allergies, anxiety and stress, arthritis, asthma and bronchitis, carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive motion injuries, chronic and temporary pain, depression, tension headache, insomnia, myofascial pain, sports injuries, and temporomandibular joint dysfunction.

The soft tissues surrounding the muscles and tendons can become inflamed or damaged due to trauma causing scar tissue within the fascia. We offer Myofascial Release and Active Release Technique here in the office for those patients suffering with connective tissue restrictions. These techniques can restore the motion of the joint and muscles attached as well as decrease or eliminate pain. Many patients seek myofascial treatment after losing flexibility or function following an injury or if experiencing ongoing back, shoulder, hip, or virtually pain in any area containing soft tissue. You may often here the term “trigger point” which is where the muscle fibers have contracted into a bundle. Trigger points can inhibit blood flow to the affected areas causing the muscle to contraction further until the area is treated. Soft tissue therapy can be uncomfortable while trying to break up the fascia and trigger points; we recommend you stay well hydrated like you would after having a massage.pibus.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is chiropractic care?

There’s nothing mysterious about chiropractic care. It’s a natural method of healthcare that focuses on treating the causes of physical problems, rather than just treating the symptoms. Chiropractic is based on a simple but powerful premise. With a normally functioning spine and healthy nerve system, your body is better able to heal itself. That’s because your spine is the lifeline of your nervous system. It controls feeling, movement, and all function through your body.

What is a chiropractic adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment is the art of using a specific force in a precise direction, applied to a joint that is subluxated, “locked up,” or not moving properly. The purpose of this safe and natural procedure is to eliminate interference to the nervous system, improving spinal function and overall health.

Can I tell if I have a subluxation?

Not always. A subluxation is like a dental cavity—you may have it for a long time before symptoms appear. That’s why periodic spinal checkups are so important. Although it may be possible to know you have a subluxation, it is rarely possible to be sure you don’t. Regular spinal checkups are always a good idea, and they promote good health from the inside out.

Is chiropractic safe?

Yes. Chiropractic has an excellent safety record. It is the result of a conservative and natural approach to health that avoids invasive procedures or addictive drugs. As proof, one merely has to compare malpractice rates between chiropractors and other healthcare professionals. Chiropractors’ malpractice premiums are a small fraction of those for medical doctors.

Why do chiropractors take x-rays?

Chiropractors take X-rays to reveal the internal structure and alignment of the spine. We are also concerned about underlying disease processes and disorders of the spine such as spinal deterioration, arthritis of the spine, abnormal development, bone spurs, disc disorders, tumors and spinal curvature. X-rays also provide a blueprint for correcting the spine back to optimal health and alignment.

Do children need chiropractic care?

Since significant spinal trauma can occur at birth, many parents have their newborns checked for vertebral subluxation. Naturally, chiropractic adjusting procedures are adapted for the child’s spine. Many childhood health complaints that are brushed off can be traced to the spine. Health problems that emerge in adulthood could often be prevented by having your children’s spine checked by a chiropractor early. Many parents report that their children enjoy their chiropractic adjustments and are healthier than their peers.
