Massage, Medical Neuromuscular Therapy
Massage Therapy is a type of physical therapy modality with a hands-on technique that involves applying sustained pressure and other manual techniques onto the various connective tissues of the body where restrictions, trigger points, muscle damage, and tendonopathies are present. These techniques help eliminate pain in damaged or overused tissues, and restore motion back to the joints, muscles, fascia and other connective tissues.
There are many conditions that will benefit from Myofascial release and other neuromuscular techniques. Many conditions especially long standing conditions and injuries may cause alignment problems due to compensation or limping within the lower extremity. Deep tissue therapies will help to alleviate these compensation patterns and coupled with other PT therapies we offer in the office, the patient can become pain free again.

We offer this and other techniques at our office, including Cupping, Trigger point therapy, Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (ASTYM).
