Remedial Massage

What is Remedial Massage

Most patients find great relief from muscle pain and soreness with remedial massage. At Manchester-Bedford Myoskeletal LLC, remedial massage refers to working on specific muscle tightness and spasm causing pain, limited range of motion, and function. We also work with the deep layers of fascia that sometimes adhere to surrounding tissues, which also restrict movement of those tissues and create pulling sensation or pain.

Some reasons you may receive remedial type work include:

  • Muscle overuse
  • Muscle pain of unknown origin
  • Muscle strain
  • Vehicle accident recovery
  • Recovery from surgery
  • Workplace soft tissue injury
  • Fascial adhesions
  • Pain from repetitive motion injury
  • Reduction in appearance of surface scars
  • Muscle inhibition/facilitation/dysfunction
  • Surgery avoidance/delay
  • Many diagnosed, functional soft tissue pathologies such as:
    • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
    • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
    • Frozen Shoulder (adhesive capsulitis)
    • Sciatic nerve entrapment/compression
    • Groin pull
    • Plantar fasciitis
    • Shin splints
    • Soft tissue-related headaches, eyestrain
    • Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJD)
    • Cervical, thoracic, lumbar neuralgia
    • Medial/lateral epicondylitis (golfer’s/tennis elbow)
