In my opinion chiropractic care is SO MUCH MORE than just the chiropractic adjustment. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE getting adjusted, but our profession is about the neuromusculokeletal system as a whole - including the bones/joints, muscles, nerves, movement patterns and even posture.
Think about it this way: If you are having pain and we are only addressing the joint itself, but the joint isn't the only issue, are you going to get back to post injury status? Maybe, but most likely not because there is MORE going on. Conservative treatment options, such as chiropractic and massage therapy, are meant to compliment each other.
If you have seen one of the chiropractors in our office you most likely had some type of deep tissue work done, whether it be myofascial release, pin and stretch or vacuum cupping. These therapies are beneficial in breaking up adhesions in muscles, helping to increase range of motion and increasing circulation - however you may only get 10 minutes of muscle work. A lot of the time this manual or instrument assisted soft tissue work isn't enough to really treat the muscle totally, especially because the chiropractic adjustment and rehabilitative exercises are also very important aspects of a patient visit. That is why we recommend complimenting chiropractic care with massage therapy.
The massage therapist's goal is to address the soft tissue structures in your area of complaint. Pinnacle Hill Chiropractic's two massage therapists pride themselves on offering high quality site specific soft tissue treatment that will compliment the patient's chiropractic treatment plan. Our 5 providers work together to provide effective complimentary care to all patients.
