Massage therapy has many different uses in the modern world – a number of healing properties include improved circulation, decreased inflammation, and the promotion of rapid healing.
The doctor and massage therapist will discuss symptoms, medical history, and the desired results. Under the supervision of a doctor, the physical therapist will develop a customized massage therapy plan for the patient.
Referral information is an important part of developing the massage therapy plan
Occupation and level of stress are also points of discussion. Some evaluations will be made through touch to determine the patient’s pressure tolerance. Depending on the condition, massage therapy may be localized, or total body.
Massage Therapy and Exercise
