Massage and Adjustments

Local massage is often used in preparation for a chiropractic adjustment. Massage relieves tension and warms up the soft tissues in the affected area, making joints more pliable and easily adjusted.

A general massage, which lasts 30 minutes to one hour, can also be good preparation for an adjustment. In addition to the immediate area of concern, it helps you relax and become more receptive to other hands-on treatment.

On the flip side, a massage after an adjustment is also beneficial for further relaxation. With regular therapeutic massage, chiropractic adjustments may hold longer and allow your body to return to an optimal state of function and health quicker.

"I had been suffering from hip and leg pain for about year when a respected yoga instructor recommended Dr. D. I attended a Monday night seminar to check the place out and promptly overcame my skepticism. Dr. DeFrancesco is knowledgeable, caring and professional with an office staff that supports his philosophy. This is a state of the art facility providing first class health care. Dr. D has been a true partner in my healing process."

"I have been to Dr. D multiple times for back pain and each time, he has helped me get rid of the pain entirely! I encourage anyone struggling with pain, or just looking for a way to stay healthy overall, to give his office a call. He is an amazing person who truly cares about his patients!

"They are not only extremely professional and helpful but genuinely care about your well being! In addition, the group is very supportive of the community. I love that they partnered with We Are the Children to donate thousands of dollars worth of toys.

Payton Lussen
"This office was the best experience I have ever had with a doctor. The staff are warm, friendly and accommodating. There was never a long wait to see my doctor. Dr. Wade helped with some long term lower back pain that I thought I would have to live with, however after going through the treatment process, I'm happy to say i'm no longer in any pain. I would highly recommend the office to anyone."

"I started adjustments for neck, back, and tailbone pain and at the end of the 10 weeks the pain was completely gone. Dr. Wade is kind, funny, and very good at what he does. He brings positive energy into the office every single day and is in a good mood 100% of the time. During each session, he gave me tips on faster healing and lifestyle changes I could make to help in the future."
