Chiropractic & Massage Therapy

Chiropractic

Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.

Doctors of Chiropractic – often referred to as chiropractors or chiropractic physicians – practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis, and treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary, and lifestyle counseling.

Therapeutic Massage 

Therapeutic Massage is the physical manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being. There are dozens of types of therapeutic massage methods (also called modalities) including Deep Tissue, Swedish and Sports massage which are incorporated by our practitioners here at Tri-Cities Pain Clinic. These therapies offer a natural and effective way of reducing stress, promoting good health and relieving musculoskeletal pain ailments. In addition to helping with chronic pain, studies have found that massage therapy is beneficial for anxiety, digestive disorders, fibromyalgia, headache and many other conditions. In cooperation with our chiropractic office, a specific therapeutic massage treatment plan can be put together to ensure that you receive personalized and effective care. If you just need to relax and unwind or need specific pain relief from sports or work injuries, a car accident, or other types of related injuries, please call our Massage Practitioner today!
