Massage Therapy Care is a Natural, Drug-Free Health Care Service
We understand that pain medication may sometimes be required; however, there are often alternatives that will help you without having to rely on medication to manage your pain.
While there seems to be universal agreement that massage “feels good,” it also offers many specific benefits. The therapeutic use of massage affects all systems of the body, most particularly circulatory, muscular, facial, and nervous systems. Massage therapy is also effective in the control of pain – both chronic and acute, in stress reduction and in creating a sense of relaxation and well-being.

National Spine & Wellness’ 3 Step Treatment Plan
Our care involves the diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders
of the muscles, bones, and joints, especially the spine. Your first visit to National
Spine & Wellness is dedicated to learning about the history of your pain and how
it impacts your daily life.
The information we gather during your initial assessment is used to create a 3-
step treatment plan.
Step One: Pain Relief
Did you know that manual therapy is one of only very few treatments science has proven to be the most effective for relieving your back and neck pain? Our team are experts at this treatment but also understand that this isn’t all you may need to get better.
They also work collaboratively with your health care team to get you out of pain and get you moving in a safe, controlled fashion.
Step Two: Rebuild Strength & Agility
Ask yourself, if you were 100% what would you be doing?
That is the question we put to you first and foremost so we can customize your treatment plan.
Once your pain begins to go away we empower you to gain the knowledge, understanding, and tools to build your resiliency to get back to the activities you love.
Step Three: Maintain & Improve
By using a wellness model customized to your specific needs, we can give you the knowledge and tools to maintain and improve your health in a wellness model. Once the problem that was causing your symptoms is corrected, we will also work with you to learn ways to prevent the pain from returning.
The goal of our care is to offer preventative maintenance for pain-free living.
Maintenance and Prevention
The care you receive at National Spine & Wellness goes beyond just treating your ailment. Our
goal is to have our clients maintain the results of their treatment and learn how
to prevent injury in the future. We work with you to develop a plan that
helps transition our patients from active therapy to an injury prevention and maintenance plan.
