What Is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is one of the many treatments the chiropractic doctors in our Wilmington, Newark and Dover Delaware offices provide. It involves applying pressure to the muscle layers and connective tissues manually. This pressure and motion helps to ease daily tension and helps patients recover painlessly after an injury.

It is a safe, natural form of treatment that is often quite pleasant and enjoyable for the patient. It can be used alone or in conjunction with other forms of chiropractic care and treatment. It really depends on the individual.
