Orthopedic Massage is purposeful bodywork meant to bring functional balance to the fascial and musculoskeletal system. In balancing these support and loco-motor systems, the orthopedic massage therapist will reduce effects of mechanical forces responsible for chronic pain and tissue disruption.
Orthopedic Massage sessions will include physical assessments such as postural analysis, range of motion testing and/or other special orthopedic tests as well as palpation of tissues. Once the orthopedic massage therapist has a good picture of the clients presentation and a treatment plan has been determined the client will receive bodywork to promote functional balance with the intention of addressing the root causes of pain and dysfunction, thus eliminating the symptoms.
Please call to schedule an appointment with one of our Orthopedic Massage therapists. These sessions are not available for scheduling online.
