As we understand the relationships between the bones and their surrounding muscles, tendon and ligaments, we believe that soft tissue work by a competent massage therapist is a valuable service to our patients. With that in mind, Tampa Family Chiropractic employs a Licensed Massage Therapist to provide therapeutic massage, myofascial release and trigger point therapy.
