A chiropractic treatment at the clinic begins with a massage from one of the staff’s licensed massage therapists. The welcoming and relaxing gesture is an integral element of Dr. Kelsall’s care, as this Portland massage therapy treatment helps prep the muscles to welcome the structural adjustment. In return, a structurally aligned spine means muscles don’t have to work as hard to support the bones. Ease reigns in the body.
