A manual therapy intervention, a type of passive movement of a skeletal joint. Which describes the range of motion of the target joint. Passive movement technique for musculoskeletal conditions. Mobilization is in cases when range of motion is lacking. Joints are points in the body where two bones meet. They are surrounded by soft tissue, which is susceptible to injury or disease. Joint mobilization is a physical therapy technique designed to relieve pain and muscle spasms, release tension and improve flexibility in a joint.
Treat individuals with neuromuscular diseases, injuries in order to reduce symptoms such as pain, muscle spasms or contractions, Massage therapists will work to restore fitness and health high possible degree, finding and eliminating trigger points causing pain, helping to restore postural alignment and flexibility. Treatment goal is to rebuild the strength of tissue injured to restore physical functioning, also to improve the flow of blood and lymph in the body. Patients who require neuromuscular physical therapy such as fibromyalgia, scoliosis, low back pain, arthritis, sciatica
Trigger point therapy
Spots of Hyperirritable in the skeletal muscle. They are associated with palpable nodules in taut bands of muscle fibers, myofascial knot as an identifiable source of pain.
Aims to bring back full function following injury through restoring muscle strength, endurance, power, and improving flexibility. Therapists achieve these results by carefully selecting and planning various exercises and drills for each client.
Safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.
Deep Tissue Massage
Mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. This helps to break up scar tissue that forms following an injury and reduce tension in muscle and tissue. It may also promote faster healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation.
Muscle Energy Technique
Manual therapy techniques directed at improving musculoskeletal function or joint function, and improving pain. Injury can occur as a result of trauma, accidents, overuse, strain/sprain, Muscle Energy is a direct and active technique, meaning it engages a restrictive barrier and requires the patient's participation for maximal effect. Muscle energy techniques can be employed to reposition dysfunctional joint and treat the affected musculature. Indications include, but are not limited to: muscular shortening, low back pain, pelvic imbalance, limited range of motion, somatic dysfunction, respiratory dysfunction headaches & many other's
Stretching, Range of motion Exercises:
Limited range of motion refers to a joint that has a reduction in its ability to move. The reduced motion may be a mechanical problem with the specific joint or it may be caused by injury or diseases. Physical and occupational therapy can help to improve joint function by focusing on range of motion exercises & sometimes include Thai massage stretch. The goal of these exercises is to gently increase range of motion while decreasing pain, swelling, and stiffness.
Benefits of stretching:
- Reduced muscle tension.
- Increased range of movement in the joints.
- Enhanced muscular coordination.
- Increased circulation of the blood
- Increased energy levels
The type of technique or treatment applied is dependent on the nature of the stage of training or competition, sports injury or condition and the assessment of the remedial massage therapist. Sport massage is a blend of techniques that aim to enhance performance and help overworked muscles to recover quickly.
Benefit of Sport Massage
- improved relaxation
- minimal muscle tension
- higher range of movement
- scar tissues improvement
- better blood circulation
