Massage therapy is an important part of rehabilitation. Massage is also used in the treatment of chronic health conditions, such as headaches, neck and back pain, fibromyalgia and many other medical conditions. This type of massage is known as neuromuscular therapy. Therapeutic massage, when combined with chiropractic care and/or physical therapy can be an unbeatable team.
While this type of massage retains a relaxation element, advanced techniques such as lymphatic drainage, deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy can be used for pain and chronic health issues. These forms of massage increase blood circulation, aiding in the development of muscle and connective tissue reconstruction, function, and movement while decreasing scar tissue formation. Massage techniques can also be adapted to reduce muscle inflammation and discomfort, while improving motion.
Our massage therapist carefully reviews your medical history and health evaluation. By performing a muscle stress test prior to your massage, we are able to better target your problem areas. Most often during neuromuscular therapy the therapist will see a patient very frequently for the first few weeks or months to decrease the amount of scar tissue formation from an injured area.
Our licensed massage therapists are highly trained and perform all massages under the direction of a supervised physician. Doctor-prescribed massage may be covered under your health insurance.
