Remedial & Sports Massage
Remedial & Sports Massage is a form of physical therapy used to treat or prevent soft tissue pain, improve joint movement and rehabilitate muscular injuries and dysfunctions.
What is Remedial Massage:
Remedial Massage can assess and treat
myofascial pain, injury and dysfunction affecting
movement and mobility. It is applied in the
preventative, corrective and rehabilitative phases
of therapy to restore and maintain the normal
integrity of the soft tissue structure (muscles,
tendons, ligaments and fascia) of the body.
Pain or symptoms caused by muscle (myo) or connective soft tissue (fascia) is described as myofascial pain. Myofascial pain is usually not specific and is often described by the patient as a ‘deep ache’, ‘tightness’ or ‘tenderness’ in an area. Other symptoms can include reduced range of motion of muscles and joints, stiffness, fatigue, weakness, numbness or a tingling sensation.
