Orthopedic & Sports Massage

 


A highly specialized, clinical mode of manual therapy

I practice a mode of therapy designed specifically to treat orthopedic conditions; the techniques I use  often alleviate symptoms that haven't responded to other therapies. Conditions treated include:

  • Low back pain

  • Neck & shoulder pain

  • Rotator cuff injuries

  • Tennis & golfer's elbow

  • Shin splints

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Sciatica

  • Chronic tightness/lack of mobility

The therapy addresses these conditions through a unique protocol that incorporates:

  • Mobilization of soft-tissue and joints to break up adhesions in muscles and ligaments and to reposition soft tissue for correct movement patterns

  • Muscle Energy Technique, or active muscle contraction, to reduce muscle hypertonicity (tightness) and to re-activate weak or deconditioned muscles

Treatment is done over clothes, so please wear loose-fitting clothing.
