Massage Therapy in Panorama City

Adjusting patientMassage can be a very important component of your overall customized care plan after an accident or other injury. At Paramount Family Health Centers, we incorporate massage therapy for our patients who can benefit from additional soft tissue healing techniques.

Our Approach

For over 25 years, we have been providing comprehensive care for patients hurt in auto accidents and other types of accidents, including workers’ comp and other personal injury cases. Based on a thorough examination, your chiropractor will design a care plan that is tailored to your specific injuries and needs. Often, this plan will include massage therapy.

We do not do massage in the early, acute stages of your injury while your muscles are in spasm. Later, as your pain has subsided, we will introduce massage as a way to break up scar tissue and calcification that can build up in muscles and ligaments as part of the body’s defense mechanism after an accident.

We offer both manual (hands-on) massage, and mechanical massage (using a massage “gun” or other therapeutic device) to provide deep-tissue massage and myofascial release. This is not a full-body massage; we focus our care on the specific areas of your body that are in need.


Since we do not offer massage therapy as a stand-alone modality, there is no separate preparation or paperwork involved. You can wear your normal clothing. In some cases, if we need to access a large part of your body for your massage, we may ask you to change into a gown.

We will do your massage therapy prior to your chiropractic adjustment. This helps to relax the muscles, release any knots and soothe your body so it does not tense up during your adjustment. This allows us to do your adjustments with lower force, making it more comfortable for you. Working on the soft tissues before your adjustment can also help retrain your muscles to help hold your adjustment longer.
