Massage therapy has been known to increase circulation, boost the immune system, promote nervous system function, reduce blood pressure, increase flexibility, and aide in pain relief. It can also help prevent future injury and speed up recovery time, allowing you to get back out there faster and stronger.
Massage Therapy partners beautifully with Physical Therapy Treatment, aiding in healing of injuries and through preventative maintenance to ensure proper care of the body and its systems. An example of this is when muscle guarding occurs. Muscle guarding is the body’s natural response to an injury where the muscles form a tight, protective wall in an attempt to further protect an injured site. When this process occurs, the healing process can be delayed by the body’s own protective reactions, causing the great amounts of pain and dysfunction. Massage therapy can relax and release those muscles allowing the Physical Therapist to perform their job more efficiently; allowing them to work on the actual cause of the original injury rather than spending a large portion of time managing post-injury symptoms and trying to work around a wall of tight and stiff muscles.
