“Massage therapy is an important part of our overall health and wellness strategy.” – The Neck and Back Clinics
If you are new to massage therapy, you may think of massages as a nice indulgence when you visit the spa. Sure, a massage feels good and is a great way to relax. However, massage therapy is much more than this. Our licensed massage therapists have studied the science behind this important treatment; mastering important techniques that may help your body heal and manage chronic pain.
Q: How does massage therapy help with my physiotherapy treatments?
Massage therapy increases the effectiveness of our physiotherapy treatments by improving circulation to the injured areas, increasing the range of motion of the back, neck and extremity joints and decreasing muscle pain. It also releases endorphins, which help improve our patients’ moods, and it helps rid the body of toxins.
Q: Does therapeutic exercise really work?
Yes. Physiotherapy can successfully treat your chronic or acute injuries and prevent future injuries. Some of the most common benefits include increased strength and flexibility and reduced pain. Physiotherapy treatments have also been scientifically proven to help individuals suffering from many neurological disorders, including cerebral palsy, strokes, traumatic brain injuries and injuries to the spinal cord.
NECK AND BACK FACT: Massage therapy is a critical component of pain management and promotes the body’s natural healing process. Massage causes your blood pressure to drop as you begin to relax, along with the production of Cortisol, a common stress hormone.
