Therapeutic Massage Options
Different Kinds of Therapeutic Massage
There are many different types of massage as well, and our physiotherapist may also recommend these to complement your physiotherapy treatments, including:
Deep tissue massage:
This type of massage loosens up your muscles and their connective tissues.
This type of massage relaxes any stiff or tense muscles you may have, allowing for increased blood flow and fluid drainage from swollen areas.
This type of massage creates room for tissues that may be trapped by distortions or fascial adhesions, freeing them from constriction.
Sports massage therapy can be used before you even begin your rigorous exercise regimen, targeting the specific muscles and tissues that see the most use for your sport.
By working to mobilize, loosen, and relax these muscles before you train, you can help them stay limber throughout the process. This will decrease your risk of strains, sprains, and ruptures.
