Questions to ask your doctor:
How many sessions will I need to schedule before I start seeing improvements?
What specific stretches and exercises can I do after and in between sessions to accelerate my recovery and prolong the benefits of my orthopedic massage?
Pre-procedure prep for orthopedic massage: When dealing with a soft-tissue injury or any other health or medical concern, it is always a good idea to make an appointment with a medical physician to discuss all treatment options ahead of time.
What To Expect
Orthopedic massage begins with a thorough evaluation and therapeutic assessment that involves manipulation and movement of the affected soft-tissues. The treatment itself draws upon several bodywork techniques, including but not limited to sports massage, trigger point therapy, active and passive movement and myofascial release. Progress is typically monitored post-treatment.
Duration: The number of sessions required will vary based on the client's individual condition or concern. A proper treatment program can be designed and implemented by a licensed massage therapist following the completion of a thorough evaluation process.
