Whether the injury is in its acute phase or is something that just won’t go away, massage is extremely effective to bring you back to your normal activity level. Consistent specific work on the injury site as well as taking structural and other imbalances into account help not only heal the injury, but prevent future injuries by getting to underlying potential problem areas.
Common injuries like Plantar Fascitis, tendinitis, frozen shoulder, and IT band syndrome can be very effectively treated with massage. Additionally, massage can accelerate recovery from joint replacements and other surgeries. I am an insurance provider for most carriers. Check with yours to see if massage is covered.
