Treatments We Offer...

 
 
We offer nursing services and specialize in pain management of soft tissue.  We are a primary care multispecialty group.  I work  with physicians,Photo of treatment options chiropractors, and physical therapists on a referral basis. A member of our staff will discuss medication and body mechanics, explain test results, and assist with pain management. We start each client by conducting a medical history and physical assessment (range of motion, structure analysis, sites of pain, and review of systems), which enables us to get acquainted and provides us with a direction to begin work. We keep progress notes, which are open to the patient, and can be used to keep other healthcare providers informed.  In addition, we provide case management for nursing services.

Are there different types of massage treatments?

The individual massage techniques that comprise massage are generally described as physical actions performed on the body, such as touch, compression, stroking, joint movement, friction, kneading, vibration, and percussion. There are more than 50 variations and techniques. Massage therapy providers may utilize multiple techniques. Some of the most common techniques are:
 

 

Neuromuscular Massage: An advanced method of soft tissue massage for the relief of muscular discomfort, using accurate assessment and precise treatment and measured results to increase function.
 

   

Deep Muscle/Deep Tissue Massage:  Uses deep pressure and slow strokes to release chronic areas of tension and contraction. This technique is usually applied to specific areas of tension in the body, but may also be used for a full-body massage.
 

   

Swedish Massage: This type of massage is probably the most common. It uses long strokes, kneading and friction applied to the superficial muscle layers to promote relaxation and circulation. This technique is often used for full-body massage.
 

   
Trigger Point Therapy: This technique uses deep pressure at tender areas called trigger points. Trigger points are often like a “knot” in your muscle. Trigger point therapy is often used in cases of chronic soft tissue pain.
 
How many treatments will I need?

Depending on the duration, severity, and nature of your complaint, as well as your physical activity, the number and frequency of treatments may vary. Your massage therapist may recommend only one massage or a series of massages over a few weeks.

 
How long will my appointment be?
Initial appointments will take approximately one hour and thirty minutes. Thereafter, massage treatments will range from 30 to 60 minutes, contingent upon your treatment plan and what other medical treatment(s) you are receiving. In certain cases, patients may book 90-minute appointments.
 
Who should NOT get a massage?
Someone who has a contagious condition (i.e., poison ivy, warts, or other highly contagious diseases) or someone who does not want a massage.
