Orthopedic Massage

What Is Orthopedic Massage? Orthopedic surgeons correct skeletal deformities and injuries. Orthopedic massage therapists use alignment and release techniques to help clients recover from injuries and surgery. With modern medical techniques and an evidence-based approach to massage, these practitioners can help you resolve your symptoms without exacerbating your existing conditions. To ensure orthopedic massage is right for you, be sure to talk with your doctor first, especially if you’re pregnant or have deep-vein thrombosis (blood clots). More therapeutic and medical-based than many other bodywork styles, orthopedic massage bears many similarities to Russian massage, physical therapy, and Rolfing. Practitioners of this “more physical than emotional” massage style put detailed anatomical knowledge into practice. They understand the ways soft tissues (muscles, tendons, and fascia) influence the musculoskeletal system and manipulate trigger areas to release bodily tension, decrease pain, and increase mobility.
