Massage Therapy Erie PA

Massage therapistDid you know that massage therapy is an excellent complement to chiropractic care? Both Dr. Bannister and Dr. Coursen frequently recommend massage to their patients as it helps to loosen the muscles. “A lot of times a patient’s pain is coming from chronic tightness that they’ve had for years,” says Dr. Coursen.
