Massage therapy is another hands-on, natural treatment for pain and stiffness relief, muscle function improvement, and overall relaxation and wellness. Our knowledgeable, caring massage therapists are focused on providing the care and technique(s) that will result in the best healing and wellness for you. Massage therapy, integrated with Chiropractic Care, can help improve your overall healing and wellness results.
Exercise & Nutrition
Exercise and nutrition can help provide you with better results from your care at Shelton Chiropractic Center; Exercise is valuable for helping to provide better spinal stability, and sound nutrition will give your body the fuel it needs to minimize inflammation (pain) and improve repair and healing of connective tissues.
