While chiropractic directly addresses the nervous and skeletal systems, the muscular system also plays an important role in the healing process of the body. Neuromuscular massage therapy is an excellent adjunct to chiropractic care, and we have two female therapists and one male therapist on staff to best fit the needs of our patients.
