Why Message Therapy?
Massage therapy is a specialized form of physical therapy that is delivered using the hands instead of a machine or device. If your Clearway healthcare practitioner includes massage therapy as part of your personalized pain management regimen, it can play an important part in pain relief and restoring physical function. This technique to reduce pain is also proven to get you better, faster, as we work individually with patients to meet their needs. This translates to being able to return to work sooner, less out-of-pocket expenses, and avoiding taking any extra medications. Massage therapy is commonly used to:
- Alleviate low back pain and improve range of motion
- Ease medication dependence
- Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles
- Increase joint flexibility
- Lessen depression and anxiety
- Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation
- Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles
- Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkiller
- Relieve migraine pain
How is massage therapy performed?
Massage therapy is performed by a uniquely trained Licensed Massage Therapist by using their hands to put pressure on muscle tissue and manipulate joints. This technique is done to attempt to relax tense muscles and restricted joints in order to decrease back pain caused by muscle spasm, joint dysfunction, and muscle tension. One of the techniques to employ massage therapy is to use soft tissue work. This technique applies pressure to the soft tissue of the body, such as the muscle, and helps to relax the muscle, increase circulation, break up scar tissue, and ease the pain in the soft tissue.
Our Licensed Massage Therapists provide therapeutic massages at a Clearway location in one of our warm, clean, and comfortable rooms complete with soft music and a therapeutic table specially designed for your comfort.
