Orthopedic Massage Therapy
Massage therapy may be recommended by your physician as a part of your treatment plan following an injury. This is not the traditional Western (spa) Massage for general relaxation. Orthopedic Massage Therapy is a form of manual therapy focusing on correcting musculoskeletal dysfunction through creating movement and restoring muscle balance. These techniques can be used to treat specific injuries or help with pain from a non-specific cause.
Our Massage-Xpert has an extensive knowledge and background in manual therapy techniques, anatomy and physiology, orthopedic injury evaluation, movement and posture analysis, and rehabilitation. This technique will most likely be combined with further instruction to continue healing, including strengthening exercises, a stretching regimen, and corrective exercise.
