Massage therapy reduces pain, boosts athletic performance, enhances flexibility, and improves the body’s natural ability to heal injuries. Orthopedic massage is a specialized form of massage that reduces pain and dysfunction by working with soft tissue and strengthening weakened muscles. It is a highly successful therapeutic technique for chronic pain, musculoskeletal dysfunction, and recovery from injuries and surgery, and can help prevent new injuries and correct chronic physical pain. Many athletes and dancers use orthopedic massage as a part of serious athletic training.
During an orthopedic massage, the therapist does a comprehensive assessment of muscular imbalances, body alignment, posture, and flexibility to determine the source of chronically sore muscles and joints. This assessment identifies the specific areas of the body that need rehabilitation, realignment, and strengthening. The therapist uses a number of muscle balancing techniques and deep tissue massage to correct alignment and alleviate pain.
Massage techniques include Myofascial Release, Trigger Point therapies, Neuro-Muscular Technique, Sports and deep-tissue massage, Scar Tissue Mobilization, and Active-Isolated stretching. Each massage includes specific client home-care exercises and stretches.
