Massage & Chiropractic


You can benefit in a number of ways by adding massage therapy to your chiropractic care program.


  • Recovery can be  faster and more complete when you address the muscular component.

  • Chiropractic treatment can be more comfortable when soft tissue has been addressed with massage.

  • Adjustments may hold longer when muscle tension is reduced.  

Why soft tissue is important?

Addressing soft tissue problems is an important complement to chiropractic care. This is because muscles move joints, while ligaments and fascia support them.

If a subluxation is adjusted without addressing related soft tissue problems, you may still experience pain. In addition, your tight muscles and shortened fascia can pull your joint out of alignment again.


If you are using massage therapy for pain but find your pain persists, or even worsens after your massage, chiropractic care could help in these ways.

  • If your pain involves a subluxation, chiropractic adjustment may give immediate relief as your joint is restored to alignment and mobility.

  • You may find that surrounding soft tissue heals quickly once it is no longer subjected to the stress of misaligned joints.

  • The joint movement in chiropractic adjustments can  relax deep layers of soft tissue that can be difficult to reach with massage.

  • Your chiropractor can use x-rays  to evaluate other possible causes for your pain and can make appropriate referrals if necessary.
