What is Orthopedic Massage Therapy?
Orthopedic massage therapy utilizes anatomical science and various musculoskeletal manipulation techniques to help clients recover from injuries or surgery, and aid in the overall improvement of other medical conditions and symptoms. The therapy is designed to relieve muscular and soft tissue pain, speed recovery from injury or surgery, improve flexibility, and restore structural balance. Researchers believe that orthopedic massage works by loosening connective tissue strain, improving circulation, and by helping the body release endorphins, among other active responses.
Other Benefits of Orthopedic Massage
Along with providing therapeutic benefits in the healing of injuries, pain relief, and correcting musculoskeletal dysfunctions and imbalances; orthopedic massage imparts numerous other benefits that stimulates overall health. Among recognized subsidiary benefits are:
- Reduced muscle tension that leads to an overall more relaxed state of mind and body.
- Overall enhancement of muscle and joint health, which leads to better diet and exercise results.
- Tension release spurs the production of hormones that help reduce anxiety and depression.
- Relief of some symptoms associated with a variety of conditions, including injury, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, migraines, arthritis, dementia, carpal tunnel syndrome, and various cardiovascular ailments.
- Improved sleep patterns.
Your Orthopedic Massage Therapy Session at Tru Glō Medspa
Your orthopedic massage therapy at Tru Glō Medspa begins with a consultation with Ricardo to discuss the problem condition, your general health, and desired outcome of therapy. Combined with a physical assessment, this will be used to customize massage therapy sessions that will best meet your needs.
