Muscle Therapy

Muscle Therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen when paired with Chiropractic Care. Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress-related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, Muscle Therapy can, without a doubt, help manage stress.

This translates into:

  • Decreased Anxiety.
  • Enhanced Sleep Quality.
  • Greater Energy.
  • Improved Concentration.
  • Increased Blood Circulation.
  • Reduced Fatigue
  • Reduced Inflammation and Swelling
  • Reduction in Joint Stiffness
  • Loosens Tight Muscles
  • Promotes Lymphatic Drainage
  • Aides in the Development of Muscle and Connective Tissue Reconstruction
  • Decreases Scar Tissue Formation

An Advanced Method to Decrease Pain and Improve Function

Muscle Therapy is an advanced method that allows us to decrease pain and improve function in areas that may suffer from:

  • Scar Tissue
  • Chronic Inflammation
  • Adhesions in Muscles, Tendons, and Ligaments
  • Repetitive Stress Injuries to Muscles, Joint Capsules & Connective Tissues
