How are chiropractic and massage different?
Chiropractors have extensive training that allows them to examine and diagnose conditions – they are doctors. In addition to working with the muscles, chiropractors return normal function to the joints using manipulation. Without normal joint function, muscle spasm and tension returns. Massage has many wonderful therapeutic benefits including improved circulation, release of toxins, decreased muscle tension and deep relaxation. Chiropractic and massage work very well together! Many of our patients receive massage therapy in addition to chiropractic as part of their total treatment program.
