At Complete Care Chiropractic, we strongly believe in the benefits of massage therapy in conjunction with chiropractic care. By incorporating massage therapy with chiropractic care you can reduce the tension in the body and loosen it up so that the doctor can realign different areas with more effective chiropractic adjustments. Massage therapy has been shown to speed healing and increase range of motion.
When a patient experiences a serious injury, they often start developing scar tissue. This scar tissue will cause the fascia to connect to the muscles which in turn leads to pain and a loss in range of motion. Deep tissue massage is designed to provide pain relief by targeting the connective tissues that are deep inside the body.
We currently have 3 licensed massage therapists on staff. We offer a variety of massages including: Deep Tissue, Swedish, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point, Relaxation, Hot Stone and Prenatal Massages to meet your specific needs. Our massage therapists can also incorporate our rapid release tool which uses the power of high speed vibration to relax muscles and relieve minor aches and pains.
