Massage Therapy Improves Post-Operative Surgical
An important aspect of any surgical procedure is the post
rehabilitation recovery process. It's during this process that
natural movement is re-learned, and freedom of movement is
re-enforced. Massage plays an important role as a supplement to
standard rehabilitation procedures after surgery.
Spine surgeon Johnny C. Benjamin explains how massage
can help promote healing.
"Massage is great in helping to bring blood and nutrients to the
affected area to repair the soft tissue. Massage also can help
break up scar tissue and keep the muscles supple so less scar
tissue develops in the first place."
By increasing circulation while relaxing the muscles, massage
can help the body pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and
vital organs. This allows the surgical rehabilitating area(s) to
become more flexible and heal at an accelerated rate.
Even when there's no injury, massage can helps athletes of all
levels improve their flexibility and muscle suppleness. Our
professional massage therapists can also stretch the muscles in
trouble areas, promoting increased flexibility when the body is
warm and more elastic.
When you book your massage, request a therapist experienced in
sports massage, and ask that special attention be paid to any
