Spas advertise their massage experience as a relaxing appointment. But when you’ve got an injury or need some physical therapy to get back in the game, a therapeutic massage is just what the doctor ordered – literally. At Tulsa Spine and Rehab, there are three clinical massage therapists on hand including Derek Jones. When Dr. Riley and Jones were treating some of the same patients they decided to join forces and work together.
Therapeutic massage differs from a spa massage in that therapeutic has a specific goal in mind. If you come in with a shoulder, neck or other body ache, therapeutic massage may cause initial discomfort but the plan is to fix the problem so you can be pain free or at least live in less pain.
Therapeutic massage is ideal for anyone with a neuro muscular issue whether it is skeletal or muscular in nature. Clients are first educated on the procedure and then depending on the nature of the injury, massages are performed according to the treatment protocol. It could be two visits or as long as three weeks or more. There may be some initial soreness after the workout but once the injury is dealt with and the masseuse gets to understand your body, healing is well on its way.
But you need a trained professional who understands what you need while paying attention to what works with your body and the injury. At Tulsa Spine and Rehab you’ll get the best care with the latest technology and the best professionals. Give them a call today or send them an email to see what they can do for you, (918) 743-3737.
