Life is full of stressors, and when you add physical challenges such as chronic back pain, it can be difficult and exhausting to get through the day. Over time, your health, mood, and overall quality of life suffers.

Fortunately, residents of the Philadelphia, PA, area can turn to Dr. David W. Nadler & Associates for relief from aches, pain, and stress. Dr. Nadler’s chiropractic care office in Newtown Square, PA, offers massage therapy for patients from Broomall, PA, West Chester, PA, Bryn Mawr, PA, and the surrounding communities.

Dr. Nadler specializes in drug-free pain relief and natural healing, and in addition to massage therapy, can receive various forms of physical therapy treatments, including:

All of these treatments can help to actively heal sports injuries, work injuries, auto injuries, chronic pain, and other musculoskeletal and nervous system disorders.

Two of the most recommended pain-relief therapies are soft tissue and deep tissue massage therapy. Both options are effective tools used by Dr. Nadler to help remove toxins that can build up in the muscles. These deep muscle massage treatments also help to break up muscle adhesions, decrease muscle spasms, increase your range of motion and blood circulation, and reduce your pain and its associated symptomatology.

Contact our office to find out more about our various massage therapy options for sports injury rehabilitation, increased mobility, and overall stress relief.


In contrast to deep tissue therapy, soft tissue massage therapy is most commonly used for muscle pain closer to the surface of your skin. It uses direct physical action to target your muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia, which is the thin layer of fibrous tissue enclosing internal organs. This trigger point practice is performed with a controlled instrument that is primarily utilized for the management of soft tissue adhesion, trigger point lesions, and deep fascia restrictions.

This soft tissue treatment can also include a sports massage. Dr. Nadler has worked with several professional sports teams to help remedy the various injuries suffered by athletes, facilitating their healing to ready them for their next big game in a shorter span of time. If you have a physically active lifestyle, receiving regular soft tissue massage therapy or even a deep tissue sports massage can allow your muscles to repair themselves faster.


Deep tissue massage therapy focuses on the layers of muscles and fascia deeper within the body. It uses finger pressure and slow strokes to help heal scar tissue and lessen arthritis symptoms. It facilitates the movement of toxins from the body and helps stretch deep, twisted muscle masses. 

Deep tissue massage therapy works exceptionally well in conjunction with chiropractic manipulation for people suffering from chronic back pain. In addition to reducing chronic pain, this remedy can promote a balanced posture, improve blood pressure, and rehabilitate injured muscles.

Dr. Nadler’s deep muscle massage treatment assists those who suffer from repetitive strain injuries, sports trauma, or injuries sustained in car accidents. Deep tissue therapy can also help you get a better night’s sleep by relieving stress and its side effects. If you are dealing with tension headaches, migraines, tight muscles, or stiff shoulders, a deep tissue massage from Dr. David W. Nadler & Associates can help your mind and body relax.

If you have already been receiving soft tissue massage therapy or have made deep tissue sports massage part of your athletic training routine, Dr. Nadler and his staff also offer other valuable treatments such as rehabilitation, spinal and joint manipulation, and game-ready therapeutics. If you reside in Newtown Square, PA, West Chester, PA, Broomall, PA, Bryn Mawr, PA, or any nearby community in the Philadelphia, PA, area, we encourage you to contact our office and schedule an appointment for a deep tissue shoulder massage or soft tissue massage therapy today.
