Doctor prescribed Massage Therapy uses a combined protocol of advanced massage techniques to rid the body of pain (local or referred), inhibit scar tissue formation and/or muscle dysfunction and atrophy. Medical Massage is often prescribed pre/post surgery to speed up recovery time and limit atrophy to the muscles involved. The approach used will be in alignment with the doctors prescription and treated according to time (in units) allowed for the diagnosis.
This technique will aid in bringing the body back to homeostasis and speed up recovery from pain and injury. Medical Massage in many cases is reimbursable to the patient because of its MEDICAL NECESSITY (check with your insurance carrier). Automotive and Slip and Fall cases are usually covered by insurance.
