Yes and no. After assessing your injury/problem your Physio will come up with a plan of management. This could include any or more of the following as appropriate to your condition:
Joint mobilisation or manipulation, soft tissue release / massage / muscle release / dry needling, muscle energy techniques, McKenzie therapy, shockwave therapy, postural and lifestyle advice and movement pattern retraining, exercise therapy and exercise prescription.
In other words, we often use therapeutic massage as part of your treatment based on what we think will give you the best quickest and most effective outcome for your problem.
Our primary method of solving clients problems is via a hands on approach.
In this approach combined with massage are other techniques such as release of stiff and immobile areas.
We do not provide general remedial or relaxation massage.
