After the acute phase of an injury has passed, it is ideal to begin treatment on the soft tissue. This will increase the rate and efficiency of healing, especially during the repair phase which the body goes in and out of depending on activity. It is important to use massage to decrease scar tissue, increase joint of motion for the joints, and alleviate soft tissue pain.
I accept prescriptions from MDs, NDs, LaCs, DCs, PTs, and Osteopaths; and then I am able to bill your auto insurance carrier for ongoing, regular massage therapy session. I recommend weekly visits, along with the addition of other health care services. Massage can be an essential element in the recovery process.
I may use a variety of techniques in a session.
