At the Family Chiropractic & Physiotherapy Centre we offer Massage that compliments our treatments or is also beneficial on its own.
Massage is a manual therapy of the connective tissues, used to aid recovery and promote relaxation. This involves primarily muscle and fascia but also tendons and ligaments.
Types of Massage include:
Therapeutic Massage, used mainly to compliment other treatments and focuses on specific areas around an injury.
Deep Friction Massage, a specific deep tissue massage that maintains the mobility within the tissue structures to prevent adherent scars from forming.
Trigger Point Massage, a technique that aims to deactivate painful knots or tender spots known as Trigger Points.
Sports Massage, a combination of massage techniques with the aim of not only promoting quicker healing but also lowering the risk of re-injury and helping the body to perform better.
