Massage Therapy Q & A

What is involved in massage therapy?

Massage therapy involves physical manipulation of your soft tissue. Your therapist uses pressure and movement to manipulate your muscles, ligaments, tendons, and skin. 

Massage therapy offers several positive benefits. It can:

  • Alleviate muscle pain and tightness
  • Reduce stress
  • Improve sleep
  • Enhance function

Massage therapy also has the overall benefit of improving your physical and emotional well-being. It helps you build strength and release movement-impairing tension.

Orthopaedic massage focuses on the muscles and soft tissue that surrounds sensitive joints. It has the specific goals of restoring balance, creating a fuller range of motion, and relieving pain. 

The massage therapy you receive at Cascade Orthopaedics differs from that you might get at a spa. Your massage is specifically tailored to your body and physical needs. Your therapist works to help fix patterns of dysfunction, so you get relief from pain.

What are the types of massage therapy?

The therapists at Cascade Orthopaedics use many massage therapy techniques to address your orthopaedic needs. These include:

  • Connective tissue massage
  • Myofascial release
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Deep tissue massage
