Injury Recovery Massage
Therapeutic Massage that Heals Injuries and Chronic Pain
Is your body chronically tight due to an old injury or from being in a state of constant tension? Is this tightness causing you joint and muscle pain?
When you suffer an injury or are constantly tense, your muscles and soft tissue can harden, become fibrotic and lose elasticity. Scar tissue can form, which shortens your muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Hardened tissue prevents full range of motion, pulls bones out of their proper alignment and causes pain. A person who has been injured often has one hip or shoulder higher than the other, a knee, elbow or wrist that won’t bend or fully extend, or a neck that can’t fully turn.
Restore your muscle elasticity and range of motion
An injury recovery massage from Kristina Lentz helps restore muscle elasticity and range of motion and decreases or completely eliminates muscle pain. Depending on your needs, Kristina may use myofascial release to realign your hips and shoulders, trigger point massage to release muscles, orthopedic massage to put muscles in their correct position, Swedish Massage to relax muscles and Active Release Therapy to break down adhesions and scar tissue.
During an injury recovery massage, more oxygen is pumped into soft tissues, allowing muscles to heal at an accelerated rate. Injury recovery massage supports and enhances the benefits of other healing modalities, including chiropractic, acupuncture and physical therapy. Some of the common injuries Kristina treats are: rotator cuff, carpal tunnel, whiplash, pulled hamstrings, thoracic outlet, bursitis, nerve entrapments, sciatica, medial and lateral collateral lesions of the knee, all types of tendinitis, ankle sprains, plantar fasciitis, hammer toes and arthritis of the thumb and fingers.
If you have painful muscle tightness, injury recovery massage from Beyond Massage will help get you back to full functionality.
