Orthopedic massage techniques address soft tissue injuries, orthopedic pathologies, and chronic idiopathic (of unknown origin) musculoskeletal pain.**
By applying sequences in a multi-step protocol, soft tissue imbalances and compromised joint spacing are identified and addressed; resulting in the release of soft tissue restrictions & neuromuscular trigger points, increased pain-free joint range of motion, and enhanced structural balance.
This highly effective protocol utilizes modalities such as functional assessment, muscle energy technique, active & passive release technique, strain/counter-strain, myofascial release, sustained pressure release, neuromuscular techniques, reconfiguration of myofascial scar tissue and Myoskeletal Alignment Technique.
Some of the conditions helped by orthopedic massage are:
|TMJ Disorders and Symptoms||Upper/MId/Low Back Pain|
|Tendinitis & Tendinosis||Disc Herniation (during non-acute phase)|
|Tenosynovitis||S.I. Joint / Hip Pain|
|Myofascial Scar Tissue (resulting from injury)||Sciatic Pain|
|Whiplash||Chondromalacia of the Knee|
|Adhesive Capsulitis (Frozen Shoulder or Hip)||Lateral Epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow)|
|Rotator Cuff Injuries||Medial Epicondylitis (Golfer's Elbow)|
|Thoracic Outlet Syndrome||Hip / I.T. Band / Knee Pain|
|Carpal / Cubital Tunnel Syndrome||Ligament Sprains/ Muscle Strains|
