Giving yourself a massage, like throwing yourself a surprise birthday party or asking for your own hand in marriage, is a surefire disappointment. Leave kneading to the knowledgeable with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a one-hour deep-tissue massage (a $70 value) and a spinal consultation with an adrenal stress test (a $105 value) at Armstrong Chiropractic (a $175 total value).
Dr. Billie King Shaw and the friendly staff at Armstrong Chiropractic seek out stress strongholds with adrenal tests and apply deep-tissue massage techniques to free limbs from their tormentors. A thorough consultation involving two to three specialized assessments analyzes spinal states to determine areas of concern and to identify evidence of injury from common activities such as raking leaves or juggling rakes. Dr. Shaw then investigates adrenal glands for signs of invaders that might be causing discomfort in the form of chronic fatigue, arthritis, or high blood pressure. Once pinpointed, tension becomes the target of a deep-tissue massage, with deft digits dedicating attention to specific areas of concern as specialized strokes delve below superficial layers to relieve stress in connective tissues and fascia. As residual aches fade, the therapeutic kneading can result in improved posture and an expanded range of motion, freeing bodies to once again respond appropriately to boxes that need lifting by pointing to someone else.
Doctor of Chiropractic Billie King Shaw and the staff at Armstrong Chiropractic pride themselves on providing advanced pain-relief treatments. One such technique, rapid-release therapy, uses planar waves to break up scar tissue into scar confetti. Once that happens, soft-tissue aches such as muscle spasms, tendinosis, and carpal tunnel syndrome have a good chance of feeling better. Before any treatment is scheduled, Dr. Shaw performs a chiropractic exam and takes x-rays to pinpoint the problem.
