About Musculoskeletal Therapy
Musculoskeletal therapy is a step up from Remedial Massage since therapists are more proficient in soft tissue methods such as myofascial release, trigger point release, muscular energy techniques, joint mobilization, cupping, dry needling, and strapping.
Musculoskeletal therapists, unlike conventional massage therapists, are also educated to look at injury prevention and rehabilitation.
What are the benefits of Musculoskeletal Therapy?
The intersection between bone and tendon or tendon and muscle can often be a common area of pain due to overuse or trauma. Musculoskeletal shock therapy is a means of healing these sources of pain before they lead to the degeneration of the muscle or tendon in the affected areas of the body. This treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of issues, such as:
- Low back pain
- Neck pain
- Knee pain
- TMJ disorders
- Plantar fasciitis
How Musculoskeletal Therapy Works
Tension in the muscles is often the source of chronic muscle pain. Musculoskeletal therapy is designed to alleviate this type of strain by stimulating the body’s production of growth factors, which enhance the number of healing cells in the area(s). In addition, the neurotransmitters in the body become depleted, which can alleviate pain during this time of healing. This therapy is usually done on a routine basis to manage muscle pain, but the benefits are incredible. Each session is highly customized to meet your specific needs.
