Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being. There are dozens of types of massage therapy methods (also called modalities).

 

People seek massage therapy for a variety of reasons – to reduce stress and anxiety, relax muscles, rehabilitate injuries, reduce pain, and promote overall health and wellness.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy focuses on restoring functional movement and alleviating pain in people of all ages who have mobility limitations due to pain, injury, illness, disability or birth conditions. Physical therapy also helps prevent loss of mobility with individualized fitness programs that encourage a healthier lifestyle.

 

Your physical therapist will perform an evaluation to diagnose dysfunctional posture and movement patterns. The evaluation will include an assessment of your current symptoms, strength, balance, posture, breathing patterns, movement patterns, sleep habits and lifestyle.

 

A personalized treatment plan is developed to improve mobility, reduce pain, restore independence and meet your individual needs and goals. You will also be instructed in a home program to help you achieve maximum independence in mobility and self-manage your symptoms. When appropriate, recommendations will be made for treatment by other healthcare providers in conjunction with physical therapy.
