Edmonton Manual Therapy
Manual Massage Therapy is a specialized form of Massage Therapy delivered with the hands as opposed to a device or machine. In manual therapy, practitioners use their hands to put pressure on muscle tissue and manipulate joints in an attempt to decrease pain caused by muscle spasms, muscle tension and joint dysfunction. As simple as this may sound, not all Massage Therapists dedicate the time and energy to becoming proficient in this area. At Body Tech Therapeutic Massage Inc., we believe that Manual Therapy is an important aspect of the overall treatment of any injury or chronic illness.
Edmonton Exercise Therapy
Almost any patients undergoing Massage Therapy can benefit from exercise therapy. It is a specific type of exercise tailored to rebuilding muscle and function over an extended period of time. Depending on the diagnosis, exercise can take the form of stretching or flexibility exercises, strengthening, nerve mobility exercises, pain-relieving exercises, and balance and proprioceptive exercises. Ultimately, the goal for all of our patients at Edmonton Massage Therapist is to reduce pain, regain full mobility and range of motion thus improving overall quality of life. We have a fully equipped gym facility for these types of therapies, as well as the ability to create exercise outlines so you can continue your recovery on a daily basis safely in between your sessions.
Edmonton Geriatric Therapy
There are many physical problems associated with the elderly which can be addressed by the use of Massage Therapy. There are three main categories to begin; the first is one in which the patient simply does not use their limbs or does not exercise. This can be corrected by utilizing range-of-motion exercises and other exercises. The second is problems directly related to cardiovascular disease such as heart disease and stroke. Massage Therapist have a number of tools to work with these issues such as exercise, aqua therapy, electrical stimulation, and more. The third are skeletal problems such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. These problems require special attention and training as patients suffering from these ailments are extremely frail and experience extreme pain. At Edmonton Massage Therapist all of our therapists are fully trained to work with geriatric patients.
