The licensed massage therapist will treat your client with care and will review what the medical provider has prescribed for treatment. Then we will do an assessment based on postural evaluation, joint range of motion, and soft tissue assessments to determine the source of pain. By addressing the source of the pain, we restore balance to the body and achieve lasting results rather than temporary relief of symptoms.
Sometimes patients will be asked to be dressed as they would for PT or exercise. This allows the massage therapist to perform techniques that work on range of motion work.
At the end of the session the patient and therapist will review appropriate home care. If patients are in physical therapy, we defer to the exercises prescribed by the physical therapist.
Rest assured, your patient will be our top priority throughout the entirety of the healing process. Through our hands-on approach, we will ensure that your patient is not alone on the road to full recovery.
Have you, or someone you love, been involved in a recent auto accident? Accidents, no matter the seriousness, can have major effects for years to come if untreated. Sometimes symptoms will show up immediately or in as many as 30 days. In the moment, you may feel ok after the accident, only to discover two weeks later that you have headaches from the whiplash you experienced from the accident. In fact, whiplash is the most common injury after an auto accident. Blurry vision, hearing problems, dizziness, and headaches are all common results of whiplash. Soft tissue injuries (soft tissue includes muscles, tendons and ligaments) from an auto accident can cause chronic pain for months and years to come after the accident if left untreated. When muscles are injured, they will build up scar tissue to heal themselves. This can cause the muscles to be weaker, less elastic and prone for re-injury and pain. Medical Massage can help prevent that from happening to you.
When you go to the hospital or emergency room, the physician is focused on looking for major injuries due to an auto accident. They may not notice soft tissue injuries because they don’t show up on an X-ray, and they can be overlooked when addressing your injuries. This can mean debilitating pain.
Fortunately, we do have some good news. If you have been injured in an auto accident. Auto insurances, in most cases, will cover your medical massage therapy.
