Injury treatment massage is for injuries arising from overuse, a traumatic event, surgery, or any other reason. Injury treatment utilizes techniques used in deep tissue massage and swedish massage, among others. Often times essential oils can be introduced to aid in the healing process. Each massage is tailored to treat the specific injury. With injury treatment massage some times it is necessary to treat only certain parts of the body relating to the injury. Though, as time allows, it may be possible to address areas that do not appear to relate to the injury.

Here is a brief list of the conditions that benefit from injury treatment massage:

  • Whiplash
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Migraines
  • Strained muscles
  • Sprained ligaments
  • Pre and post surgery
  • Rotator Cuff injuries
  • Non-specific post injury pain

The list goes on. All injuries need proper blood flow to bring oxygen and nutrients to the injured tissue so that the body may begin to heal itself. With this in mind, there are very few injuries that cannot be treated by the use of injury treatment massage. On a very basic level, massage increases circulation, thus improving the delivery of healthy nutrients to the injury site.

Injury treatment seeks to take the injury at it’s current stage of healing and help it to heal. Injury treatment can help to relieve stuck muscles, decrease inflammation, relax supporting/compensating muscles, and much more. Injury treatment massage is ideally used as soon as possible after the injury is inflicted and will continue to be beneficial for some time.

As mentioned before, sometimes injury treatment can include moments of Swedish, or deep tissue massage, or another type of massage. It all depends on the stage of healing, how the client responds and feels, during and after.

Injury treatment massage seeks to treat beyond just the injured muscles. It seeks to keep other muscles from over powering the weak ones, stabilizing those weak ones, treating the connective tissue to reposition itself to allow for proper healing. It seeks to offer mental relief to the client dealing with and healing from the injury. Though a treatment massage might not be one you can sleep through, it should help you find relief from your injury. It should be noted that often times as the body reforms itself into a more optimal position, you may experience soreness, pain and inflammation. It takes time for the body to heal properly and to re-learn where muscles and connective tissue should be resting when not being used and what paths they should follow when moving. Fully healing does not happen in just one visit. It is a continual process beyond just our office and treatments, including your nutrition, and self healing you do at home using ice, heat, rest, relearning proper posture, etc as needed.
