Medical Massage Q&A

What is a medical massage?

A medical massage is a type of massage therapy tailored to your specific health needs. Whether you have an injury or chronic condition causing discomfort or strain, a medical massage can target specific muscle groups and tendons to improve healing and minimize your discomfort. 

Some noteworthy benefits you can get from a medical massage at Chiropractic, Rehab, and Sports Injuries of Louisville are:

  • Less aches and pain
  • Stress reduction
  • Mood boost
  • Better sleep
  • Better circulation

At Chiropractic, Rehab, and Sports Injuries of Louisville, Dr. Young specializes in medical massage therapy among other holistic services to reduce pain and improve the quality of your day-to-day life.

Can I benefit from a medical massage?

Medical massages can benefit acute (short-term) and chronic (long-term) conditions and injuries that cause discomfort and limit mobility. Dr. Young recommends medical massage for painful conditions like:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder
  • Tendinitis
  • Frozen shoulder 
  • Repetitive stress injuries from standing or sitting for hours at a time

Some injuries happen while playing sports, others in sudden accidents, and some from long-term overuse of a particular muscle or tendon. Dr. Young evaluates your injury before making recommendations for treatment. 

What should I expect from a medical massage?

The techniques Dr. Young uses for your medical massage are distinct according to the condition or injury you have and its severity, so not all medical massages are the same. 

When you visit Chiropractic, Rehab, and Sports Injuries of Louisville, Dr. Young welcomes you into a tranquil environment complete with low lighting and soft music. He manipulates your muscles and soft tissues with his hands, targeting particular regions of pain. 

This is different from a typical relaxation massage because of the targeted muscle groups. If you feel too much pressure at any time during the massage, you may let Dr. Young know so he can adjust his technique. 

A medical massage aids in healing and pain relief without pharmaceutical medications or invasive treatments. Call Chiropractic, Rehab, and Sports Injuries of Louisville or schedule a visit online to start a personalized holistic treatment plan today.
