In British Columbia, over 75 percent of medical doctors regularly refer their patients to a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) – and they make these referrals because Massage Therapy is both accessible and effective in the treatment of their patients’ conditions. Today, RMTs use a blend of modern science and ancient philosophies, utilizing specific techniques and modalities to treat many conditions that may include, but are not limited to:
Strains and sprains
MASSAGE THERAPY MAY INCLUDE:
Biomechanical Assessment: A detailed soft tissue assessment to reveal any issues with muscle tone, muscle balance and the presence of any adhesions. Postural assessments may be done to detect any compensatory mechanisms in the body’s response to pain structural imbalance or disability.
Manual Therapy: The appropriate application of approved Massage Therapy techniques may be utilized to provide tissue care and symptom relief. Various active and passive modalities will be employed to treat and prevent dysfunction, injury, pain and adhesions of the soft tissue.
Therapeutic Exercise: Remedial exercise may be prescribed if required to improve range of motion, prevent dysfunction, and restore natural, pain-free mobility via coordinated muscle activation.
Patient Education: Provide information regarding pain management and lifestyle changes to enhance the rehabilitation process, promote health, and manage injuries independently.
