Massage therapy

Massage therapy can be used to treat a wide range of different types of painful conditions and injuries. It can be used on its own or as part of a comprehensive physiotherapy treatment plan. The objective of massage therapy is to help alleviate pain related to the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other soft tissue structures, while helping to promote natural healing.

Massage therapy at Progressive Rehab Clinic also helps speed recovery of illnesses and injuries. Through manipulation, which is part of massage therapy, the functioning of the nervous system, muscular system, circulatory system, and skeletal systems are improved.

Each of these systems work together with each other. By restoring their functioning through massage therapy and other methods of treatment, you will notice you feel better, have improved strength, have more energy, and are often less likely to reinjure yourself.
