6 Signs You Need A Remedial Massage

Remedial massage is an excellent treatment for patients who want to stimulate the healing of soft tissue injuries or alleviate stiffness or soreness in the body. It’s also great for general health and well-being and can help to reduce stress and support good mental health.

There is a range of common conditions that benefit from remedial massage. Unlike a relaxation massage that primarily promotes calmness, remedial massage is a targeted therapy that identifies specific issue areas and uses expert techniques to treat them.

Repetitive Motion Disorder

Certain sports including tennis, running, boxing, and golf require athletes to complete repetitive, uninterrupted motions. This prolonged overuse of the same muscles can cause conditions like tennis elbow. Remedial massage is a recommended therapy for patients with Repetitive Motion Disorder.

Other non-sport-related motions can also cause Repetitive Motion Disorder. These repetitive actions include typing, using a shovel or rake, or chefs chopping ingredients.

Back Pain

Back pain is a complex and frustrating condition that can be caused by injury or lifestyle factors such as poor posture. Back pain sufferers benefit from remedial massage due to the easing of tight or damaged muscles. Remedial massage therapy can also help to calm the nervous system which is excellent for patients who suffer from prolonged back pain or a chronic pain condition.

Body Tension

Individuals with tight or strained muscles can benefit from remedial massage. The remedial massage therapy can help to ease the pain and distress associated with tension headaches, splints and strains, muscle cramps, and frozen shoulders.

Joint Disorders

Remedial massage therapy can improve joint strength and mobilisation, making it a popular and effective treatment for patients with a joint disorder. Conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome and arthritis are commonly treated by remedial massage.

Scar Tissue

Remedial massage can promote tissue regeneration and therefore benefit people with damaged superficial tissue. The presence of scar tissue can be reduced by deep tissue massage treatment. Remedial massage is an excellent recovery and preventative measure for patients who have experienced an injury and are seeking to reduce the chance of re-injury.

Anxiety and Depression

Managing anxiety and depression requires comprehensive, multidisciplinary care. Remedial massage can help to reduce cortisol levels in the body which are related to the body’s stress response. The therapy can also increase serotonin and dopamine which are hormones in the body that promote good mood and relaxation.

Remedial massage is a popular, non-invasive treatment for a range of conditions. Northern Districts Physiotherapy and Sports Clinic are proud to offer remedial massage to their patients. Book an appointment online or call (02) 9874 8410.
