Remedial Exercises & Home Care
One of the most important elements of an effective healing path has to do with what you do when you're on your own—your habits of posture and activity.
Many common injuries that massage therapists treat are directly related to overwork, such as tendonitis, muscle strain and spasm, carpal tunnel syndrome, and a whole host of other nerve impingements and functional muscular imbalances.
While massage therapy is very effective is treating and even resolving all these conditions, the best way to achieve total resolution is through the combination of therapy and retraining. It makes sense—if your old habits brought you to an injured state, changing those habits will help resolve and prevent that injury from ever occurring again. By taking personal responsibility for that aspect of your healing process, your results will be far greater than if you look to a health care professional alone.
