Should I see a physiotherapist or a massage therapist?
Many people live with persistent discomfort or pain. It is amazing how often we see people who are so busy they forget to think about their own well-being. Over the summer, keeping kids busy, managing work and social lives and going away on holidays can knock people
out of their exercise or stretching routines, increase stress and reduce the amount of sleep you get. It is extremely common to feel stiff or achy as a result of a busy work, family and social schedule.
You may be wondering, should I see a physiotherapist or a massage therapist?
Physiotherapists have a special understanding of the biomechanics of the human body. That allows them to identify specific structures that can be causing your issues and treat them accordingly. They can advise you on a treatment plan specific to you and advise if you need to come back and if so, how often.
Massage therapy can help alleviate musculoskeletal disorders associated with everyday stress, muscular overuse, physical manifestation of mental distress and many persistent pain syndromes.
Massage therapy can be an important part of your health maintenance plan by:
Reducing or eliminating pain
Improving joint mobility
Improving lymphatic drainage
Reducing muscular tension
Massage therapy can treat both acute and chronic conditions. RMTs work with a wide variety of patients in the treatment of illness, injury, rehabilitation and disability.
Here at Excelsior, we don’t provide just your ordinary massage. We use specialized manual therapy techniques, as well as TECAR and Focal Vibration therapy as standard for every massage. These two pieces of technology have been used in elite sport for many years to aid and enhance recovery.
