Clinical and Orthopaedic Massage Therapy
Clinical and Orthopaedic Massage Therapy specifically involves therapeutic assessment, manipulation, and movement of the locomotor soft tissues to reduce or eliminate pain or dysfunction.
Primary modalities include functional assessment, myofascial release, neuromuscular therapy, scar tissue mobilisation techniques, neuromuscular re-education, PNF stretching, strengthening, and specific client home-care protocols.
It can treat musculoskeletal pain conditions or sports injuries, and its objectives are to restore structural balance in the muscle groups throughout the body, allowing focus on both prevention and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal dysfunctions.
Muscle groups shorten, due to prolonged poor posture or repetitive motions, and shortened muscle groups need to be stretched out or they will pull bones onto nerves and blood vessels, and cause or contribute to all sorts of orthopaedic conditions.
