Remedial Massage – Why you need it
Remedial massage helps with joint mobilisation, stretching, strengthening certain muscle groups to remove any imbalances and improving flexibility greatly. In this article, we explain why remedial massage is so beneficial for optimal joint and muscle health.
- Sports injuries
Every successful athlete knows that remedial massage is an essential part of injury recovery and prevention. By using remedial massage techniques for sports injuries, a massage therapist firstly relaxes and warms the muscles, then works on lengthening them and removing any knots. Regular remedial massage may also help to prevent injuries developing; by keeping the muscle groups balanced and certain muscles lengthened, it can prevent some of the more common sporting injuries like tendinitis, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff injuries and many more.
- Joint and chronic pain
Remedial Massage is often used to relieve common symptoms of many types of joint and chronic pain. It reduces pain and stiffness, eases anxiety, improves range of motion in joints, and promotes more restful sleep. It can result in a significant reduction in pain. One of the many message therapies we offers is deep tissue massage. Deep tissue massage focuses on manipulation of both top and deeper layers of muscles and tissues, often requiring intense, focused pressure by the therapist. Deep tissue massage is designed to address severe tension or pain in the muscles and connective tissues.
3. Post-Surgery rehabilitation
Post-surgery rehabilitation is so important to consider as this will be the key factor in recuperation. Not only will it promote healing and help you regain mobility, if you persist with post-surgery rehabilitation your healing time will be faster and it will give you the tools and confidence to learn how to manage your injuries and take care of your body. Post-operative treatment and rehabilitation may include joint mobility assessment, joint mobilisation, scar tissue friction massage and manipulation, stretching, trigger point therapy, massage, myofascial release, corrective and strengthening exercise, dry needling, functional assessment and sports specific rehabilitation.
