What is Medical Massage?
Medical massage therapy is designed to strategically target medical conditions that are diagnosed by a physician. During your medical massage treatment, your therapist will use different massage techniques and procedures. Medical massages usually occur in 30-minute or 1-hour blocks of time.
Consulting a doctor or chiropractor first can ensure that you’re receiving the right form of treatment. Reasons your doctor might prescribe a medical massage include:
- Treatment of musculoskeletal issues;
- Physical therapy to build strength and flexibility;
- Treatment of sports injuries, car accident injuries, muscle pains and cramps, migraines, and edema;
- As a complement to psychotherapeutic programs.
Additionally, there are many types of massage that your therapist may use, from deep tissue massage to trigger point therapy, and even stretching techniques.
