Massage therapy provided at Parkwood Massage and Laser Therapy is used as a supporting modality treatment to assist regeneration and total rehabilitation provided by the BioFlex Laser technology.
It is very focal, skillful and short in duration, targeting specifically the involved tissues. Swedish massage is invaluable to deactivate trigger points, remove or decrease painful muscle spasms and assist with circulation to the affected area. Its very important function is to brake and eventually eliminate the pattern of holding a protective, compensating pattern of partial spasm that is responsible for considerable amount of pain associated with injury. A pleasant side-effect of massage is relaxation and a sense of well-being.
In addition, patients are given individually tailored exercises and stretches routine to further aid in their recovery. The exercise regime and massage frequency changes with the progression of the treatment.
