Clinical Massage Services
Adkore therapists use a variety of procedures, including neuromuscular massage and stretching, to address your specific injuries and manage your pain. We develop a customized treatment plan for each patient in order to ensure the effectiveness of your massage treatment, whether independently or in combination with other therapies. A combination of the following techniques may be recommended to help you accomplish your recovery goals:
Swedish massage therapy includes gentle to medium-pressure massage strokes performed in rhythmic and long-flowing, non-specific motions to promote general relaxation and a feeling of overall well-being.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep pressure massage strokes are targeted at the deeper structures of muscles and fascia in the body. This practice is primarily used to promote therapeutic healing to the body’s soft tissues. Deep tissue massage strokes are slow and deep.
Trigger Point Massage
Trigger point massage is a very specific massage technique that involves locating specific trigger points (often felt as knots) in muscles and applying focused pressure to the point. Additional pressure is slowly and progressively applied as the pain/tenderness of the point eases up. This method of massage is typically effective in relieving muscle pain that could be the result of chronic activities (such as cradling the phone) or acute activities (such as whiplash).
Medical massage is sometimes defined as “medically necessary massage” and usually prescribed by your physician. It is generally practiced in relation to a specific goal focused on improving your health. It can typically be helpful to individuals who suffer from an assortment of health conditions, including repetitive motion injuries, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, muscle spasms, neuromuscular conditions, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, chronic headaches, whiplash, rotator cuff injuries, and soft tissue injuries.
