Chiropractic care is a conservative, non-invasive treatment used to relive pain and treat underlying conditions of the neuromuscular system. Although it is highly effective on its own, chiropractic works synergistically with massage therapy to deliver faster, more effective results. Massage in conjunction with chiropractic treatments helps muscles function better and makes them respond more quickly to chiropractic adjustments. Dr. Witherspoon not only recommends massage to his patients – Fix the Cause Chiropractic offers it at our Duncanville location!

that massage therapy has been used for thousands of years to relieve muscle stiffness and back pain related to stress and injury? Today, it is used around the world for those same reasons.

Frequently Asked Questions
Should I get a massage?
Dr. Witherspoon’s assessment may reveal a need for treatment involving both muscles and joints, in which case massage may be recommended. Additionally, our message therapist is available to those wishing only massage therapy.
What should I expect during my massage?
Your massage experience will depend primarily on the type of massage you get. When you see our professional massage therapist, you can elect Swedish massage for superficial muscle relaxation or Duncanville deep tissue massage to target the muscles deep beneath the skin. You can elect Swedish massage for superficial muscle relaxation, lymph massage to address blocked lymph glands and improve the immune system, or deep tissue or medical massage to target the muscles deep beneath the skin. All of these styles are available at Fix the Cause Chiropractic in Duncanville. Massages are usually available in durations of up to 90 minutes, although you can reap the benefits of massage in just 30 minutes or less.
Will I need to follow any special instructions following my massage?
Yes. Massage therapy helps loosen muscles by relieving toxins that are stored in them. These toxins need to be flushed out of your system in the hours following your massage, so it is recommended that you drink plenty of water once you complete your treatment.
