How Massage Therapy Can Help With Your Physiotherapy Treatment
All of our Massage Therapists have a Physiotherapy background which makes our massage treatment more efficient as it can be tailored to any type of injury you may have. Following your Physiotherapy with a Massage Session will speed up your recovery time.
Every massage treatment is customised based on your diagnosis. While Physiotherapy focusses on joint manipulation techniques and exercise, the Massage will give a complete finish, treating all the adjacent muscles and soft tissue, using specific massage techniques related to your condition.
Sports / Remedial Massage
As the name suggests the Sports / Remedial Massage aims to improve any type of injury from a common pulled muscle to serious sport injuries, a frozen shoulder or a stiff neck. Along with specific techniques our therapists will often use different products with heating or cooling properties to help relax the adjacent muscle and tissues in order to gain a better range of movement.
Sports / Remedial Massages involves passive / active movements, trigger points, stretches and special relaxation techniques for each group of muscles depending on the injured area.
Also combined with Physiotherapy sessions, Sports / Remedial Massages prepares your body for physical manipulation and physical exercise therefore speeding up the recovery process.
When Is The Best Time To Have A Massage - Before Or After A Physiotherapy Treatment?
Having a massage after Physiotherapy will make your treatment complete. The massage boosts up the blood circulation which feeds back the microcells with oxygen. In this way, oxygenated microcells feed up the muscle fibres and make the muscle healthier and flexible. It also boosts the Lymphatic Circulation which helps the body to flush out the toxins and as a result: boosts your immune system.
Sometimes individuals with extra tensioned muscles will benefit from Massage Therapy before having Physiotherapy treatment - cutting down tension and relaxing the muscles will make it easier for joint manipulation. However your Physiotherapist will advise when is better for you to have the massage treatment if you are unsure.
