Medical Massage

Medical Massage is result oriented and the treatment is specifically directed to resolve conditions that have been diagnosed and prescribed by a Physician. The therapist may use a variety of modalities or procedures during the treatment, but will focus the Medical Massage treatment only on the areas of the body related to the diagnosis and prescription.

Medical massage is useful in addressing conditions such as:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Piriformis syndrome
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Pain associated with bulged or injured spinal disks (medical massage cannot ‘fix’ the disk, but can help alleviate much of the pain associated with the injury).
  • Migraines/headaches
  • Pain associated with pregnancy
  • Constipation
  • Range of motion issues
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Back and Neck pain
  • Plantar fasciitis (involving pain in the foot)
  • Repetitive use injuries such as those listed and tennis elbow, Golfer’s elbow
  • TMJ
  • Pain associated with restricted fascia
  • Pain associated with postural imbalances
  • Muscle cramps
