If you are combating an injury or experiencing chronic pain, clinical massage can help. Clinical massage or Orthopedic massage is outcome based and is aimed at a specific soft tissue problem. Using deep tissue massage, trigger point and neuromuscular techniques, this type of massage therapy can feel somewhat uncomfortable, especially during the first session.
Deep pressure, stretches and friction are used to reach underlying layers of muscle and fascia and break up adhesions and scar tissue. The outcome is a reduction in pain and an increase in range of motion. Massage therapy for chronic issues will utilize the greater portion of a session on specific muscles and their trigger points. This animation illustrates what a trigger point is. If you would like a full body treatment, this clinical approach to massage therapy is not for you.
This type of therapy can successfully treat such issues as carpel tunnel syndrome, postural issues that cause pain, IT band syndrome, whiplash, sports injury, back pain, knee pain, tendonosis, sciatica, piriformis syndrome, frozen shoulder, plantar fasciitis, just to name a few.
