Most of our patients will tell you that getting a massage during therapy is a great thing. Why wouldn’t it be? Massage is relaxing and makes you feel better. But it’s even more beneficial for physical therapy patients. We know that to be true.
Physical Therapists don’t use massage just because it feels so good, but because it is critical when addressing tight and dysfunctional muscles. Massage has physical benefits for the injured. It improves circulation to those muscles. It lessens the tension in them and massages away the pain. That improved circulation also accelerates healing.
Our Massage Therapists work closely with your Physical Therapist on every aspect of your Customized Treatment Plan in an effort to expedite recovery and aid in reducing your pain. Don’t hesitate to ask your Physical Therapist about whether it will benefit you.
