Goals and Benefits:
Massage therapy for recovery is geared to provide pain relief, improvement to circulation, improvement to the recovery of soft tissue injuries, and overall decreased recovery time. Studies show that when you add massage therapy alongside physical therapy and chiropractic care, your muscles can better regulate the inflammation that follows injury or intense exercise.
Lack of blood supply to soft tissues which causes hypersensitivity to touch.
Highly irritated points in muscles which refer pain to other parts of the body.
Nerve Compression or Entrapment
Pressure on a nerve by soft tissue, cartilage or bone.
Imbalance of the muscular system resulting from the movement of the body off the longitudinal and horizontal planes.
Imbalance of the musculoskeletal system resulting in faulty movement patterns (i.e., poor lifting habits, bad mechanics in a golf swing of tennis stroke, computer keyboarding).
