THERAPY FOR BOTH THERAPEUTIC
TREATMENT AND RELAXATION
WHAT IS MASSAGE EXACTLY
AND WHY SHOULD OUR PATIENTS CONSIDER MASSAGE AS PART
OF THEIR THERAPY?
Massage is a term describing
a variety of techniques to therapeutically stimulate
or soothe soft tissues of the body. Massage works to
relax and stimulate muscles by increasing blood flow,
temperature, lymph flow, and also to break-up scar tissue
between muscle fibers.
Massage is used for more
than relaxation. It is incredible at reducing swelling,
muscle spasms, and improving range of motion. Oftentimes,
when applied appropriately, insurance will cover massage
as part of a patient's therapy. Massage can also be
used exclusively as therapy.
Massage therapy can be
used as treatment for:
Low Back Pain
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Many people report improvement
Flexibility and Range of Motion
Massage isn't limited to treatment protocol. Should
you decide that you need relaxation and want to relieve
tension associated with the stresses of your daily life,
massage can be very therapeutic. Doesn't everyone love
to feel pampered with a massage?
