Orthopedic massage centers around the tissues and muscles that surround the joints of the body. This type of massage therapy focuses on alleviating pain and reducing tension in these areas. Massage helps restore muscle balance and structure and it also helps prevent further injury. By working on muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments, and joints, regular massage can improve your flexibility and range of motion, keeping your joints fluid and less prone to injury. Massage therapy is also a great tool in recovery! Massage therapy helps reduce inflammation, relax muscles and helps decrease the pressure on damaged/ recovering bones and joints. It also improves circulation, which helps nutrients and oxygen reach struggling tissues. That, in turn, encourages healing and pain reduction.
