Paravertebral massage in our office is mainly used in as an adjunct to adjusting. paravertebral massage is basically a massage table that patients will relax on either prior to or after an adjustment.
The main goal of paravertebral massage is to relax our patients and all their muscles. Generally most of our patients tend to be pretty stressed out. By helping them to relax it makes the adjustments easier to perform and they last longer.
And its always good to get in a little extra power nap.
