Therapeutic Treatment Massage
This is designed to target sore injured muscles due to a motor vehicle accident, post operation, work place accident, or other health challenges. In most cases a Doctor’s referral is required especially when insurance will be covering the cost.
Evaluation and in depth case history is taken by the Registered Massage Therapist. Muscle testing may also be required to identify injuries or conditions. Therapeutic massage specializes in the treatment of soft tissue and joint problems due to some kind of injury.
Often heat and / or ice is used throughout the treatment depending on whether the patient is in an acute / sub-acute or chronic phase. Rehabilitation may be incorporated by the R.M.T., for example therapeutic exercises and instruction are given to best suit the individual.
