Manual & Massage Therapy
At FYZICAL, no treatment is complete without hands-on care. Our therapists have many years of training and experience in several types of manual and massage therapy. You might be familiar with the types of relaxing massage you would get in a spa, but manual therapy techniques are more injury or condition-oriented and focus on specific areas of the body.
After an injury, muscles, ligaments, and tendons (soft tissues) tend to tighten up, restricting circulation, contributing to pain, and decreasing joint movement. With techniques such as soft tissue and joint mobilization, neuromuscular massage and myofascial release, FYZICAL therapists manipulate soft tissues and connective tissue (sheath that covers bones, nerves, and soft tissues) to restore motion and ease the discomfort caused by muscle tightness and spasm.
When performed by skilled FYZICAL therapists, manual and massage therapy can:
- Relax muscles and ease muscle spasms
- Increase range of motion and flexibility
- Improve circulation
- Enhance post-surgical rehabilitation
- Decrease recovery time for orthopedic problems, neurological disorders, and sports injuries
- Improve posture and balance
- Strengthen the immune system
For pain relief without surgery or prescription medication, call a FYZICAL clinic near you. Our therapists will create a personalized treatment program, including all-natural, hands-on care, to ease your aches and pains and help you move better and feel better.
