Massage therapy and chiropractic care both offer benefits...
Massage therapy treats muscle and soft tissue on elongating and broadening muscle fibers so blood can flow and heal. It can take place in a variety of settings, from a doctor's office to a spa to the finish line of a marathon.
Chiropractic care involves a diagnosis and treatment that usually includes the loosening of deep muscle tissue and adjustment of the spine.
Massage therapy is often a part of a long-term chiropractic treatment plan that uses various tools and technologies
