Medical massage incorporates many techniques to address muscle and skeletal issues diagnosed by a doctor.
While the specific benefit depends on the condition being treated, medical massage therapy can:
relieve nerve entrapment and compression
decrease pain and inflammation
improve coordination and posture
prevent future chronic pain conditions
Eliminating the base cause of pain, medical massage therapy is also cost effective due to less time away from work for side-effects with pain reducing drugs.
For this treatment we may use the massage gun, and/or electric stimulation most of which can be performed fully clothed.
Massage Therapist can't legally diagnose a patient with a condition therefore a doctor referral or prescription is required especially to bill the patient's insurance. The therapist may work from a physician’s prescription or as an adjunct healer within a hospital, chiropractic or physical therapy setting.
Performing medical massage requires a firm background in pathology and utilizes specific treatments appropriate to working with disease, pain, and recovery from injury.
