Massages Aren’t Just For Spa Days!
Everyone loves a good massage, especially after a long day of work! Many people view massages as a special treatment reserved for taking a visit to the spa, however, massage therapy is actually an extremely beneficial mode of treatment used by physiotherapists to help relieve all types of pain.
According to Healthline, a 2014 study involving 59 participants found that deep tissue massage helped to reduce pain in people with chronic low back. The authors likened its effects to those of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen. That’s a pretty powerful affect for a massage to have!
If you’re struggling with back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, osteoarthritis, or even chronic headaches, massage therapy could be your best bet to long-lasting pain relief. Contact Lake Country Physiotherapy in Orillia today to learn more about how massage therapy can benefit you.
What Is Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy has been around for a really long time, in fact, it’s one of the earliest forms of pain relieving treatment that we know of. Massage therapy involves acting on and manipulating the body with pressure – structured, unstructured, stationary, or moving – tension, motion, or vibration (which can be done manually or with mechanical aids.)
Therapeutic Massage at Lake Country Physiotherapy can help with a variety of different conditions. A few commonly experienced ones are as follows:
- Back, shoulder, and neck pain
- Joint pain
- Sports-related injuries
What Should You Expect From a Physiotherapy Massage?
Physiotherapy massages are more therapeutic in nature, and they are performed with the intention of immense pain relief. By using deep pressure and specific stretching exercises, our (practice name) physiotherapists will be able to manually break up scar tissue and adhesions caused by inflammation or injury, and manipulate soft tissues for pain relief. This way they can pinpoint exact areas of your body with a limited range of motion to release muscle tension and restore proper blood flow and circulation of the affected muscles and soft tissues.
One of our (PRACTICE NAME) physiotherapists will do a full assessment of your body and talk with you about the areas you’ve been experiencing the most pain in. From there, he or she will put together a treatment plan of action to address your problem areas. Depending on your areas of concern, your in-office massages will target tissues, muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin and joints, as well as lymphatic vessels, or organs of the gastrointestinal system.
