Massage can be an effective adjunct to physiotherapy and involves the manipulation of superficial and deep layers of muscle and connective tissue to aid healing, improve blood circulation, promote relaxation and well being and enhance muscle function, break down scar tissue and reduce or relieve pain. Massage can be performed on muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia, skin and joints.
Massage treatment can be used as a part of your physiotherapy treatment for conditions such as tendon injuries, arthritis, back pain, sports injuries, post fracture or surgery, migraines and headaches. The degree of force or pressure may vary depending on your sensitivity and pain.
