13. If I already see a chiropractor why do I need massage?
Chiropractors and massage therapists truly make the best duo when treating an injury. Usually if a bone has rotated out of its normal position a chiropractor can use their skills to reset the bone. Sometimes if the injury is left for an extended period of time the muscles which attach to the offset bone can shorten and hold it in this unnatural position. Even more common however is the taut muscle that is the culprit for rotating the bone out of position. While chiropractors can reset bone, if the muscle is left untreated it will continue to misalign the bone. Massage can reset bones overtime but it can take much longer than a few visits to the chiropractor. Using chiropractics and massage therapy together can ensure both the skeletal and muscular systems are thoroughly treated and can speed up the healing process of an injury.Return to FAQ page.
