When used with Physical Therapy, the goals of massage are to relax muscle spasms, reduce swelling or break down scar tissue in an effort to facilitate movement. Massage has a tremendous, immediate effect on restoring normalcy to the soft tissues. When introduced early in a treatment program, it profoundly affects how the patient feels and promotes early recovery from injury or surgery.
A relaxing, stress reducing massage may also be booked privately. Each treatment can address various issues because the massage is specifically tailored to your needs. Listed below are the types of treatments available at Ultimate Physical Therapy.
