Comprehensive Medical Massage Assessment
Your first visit allows us to take a look at your medical history, including onset of injury or pain. We take our time to problem solve and to analyze your movement and your daily activities that may be contributing to the issues that brought you in. Palpation and manual therapy are the final stage of the assessment, allowing the therapist to feel areas in your tissue that may be the cause or source of pain and/or injury. Following these steps to identifying the problem, the therapist will create a plan for therapy that will begin the journey to health and recovery in your followup appointments.
Medical Massage Therapy
Medical massage is outcome-based massage; primarily the application of a specific treatment targeted to the specific problem(s) the patient presents with a diagnosis and are administered after a thorough assessment/evaluation by the medical massage therapist with specific outcomes being the basis for treatment. Medical massage therapy is concerned with providing relief for medical conditions.
Fascia is the dense, spiderweb-like connective tissue surrounding every muscle, bone, nerve & organ in our bodies. When fascia is tight or bound, it can torque joints, constrict muscles and can lead to limited range of motion, pain & injury. With the use of specialized tools and fascia release techniques, we can release the fascial tissue which will not only relieve pain & increase flexibility, but can improve the body's ability for more functional movement.
This is a form of bodywork geared toward participants in athletics. It is used to help prevent injuries, to prepare the body for athletic activity and maintain it in optimal condition, and to help athletes recover from workouts and injuries. The purpose is designed to prepare the athlete for their best performance, reduce fatigue, and relieve muscle swelling and tension. During physical activity—especially strenuous—muscle tension builds up in the body's soft tissues. Dynamic Therapeutics is specially trained to work with athletes that have disabilities and is able to make appropriate accomodations.
