At Kauffman Chiropractic we believe that the muscles are an essential part of most painful conditions of the spine and extremities. By addressing the muscular component of your condition we can improve our response to chiropractic care and provide more lasting relief. Our chiropractors all do some massage as part of your visit but in some cases addition therapy targeting specific muscles or muscle groups improves a patients response to care dramatically. In those cases massage therapy is prescribed as part of your treatment program. We currently have four certified massage therapists working at our clinic. Their methods differ slightly but all are skilled in deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy. Most are also trained in active release techniques or PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation).
Therapeutic massage is done in our clinic in a relaxed but professional environment. Our caring massage therapists work under the supervision of our chiropractors which helps them to target the areas that are most problematic for you. Each has the ability to use deep pressure but the amount of pressure is up to you. In some cases this therapy is covered by your insurance company if it is part of an active care plan established by a doctor or chiropractor. We do accept patients on a cash only basis who are not under a doctor’s prescription. We offer day and evening appointments as well as appointments one Saturday a month for your convenience.
