The primary focus with Massage at Riverview Clinic is treating painful conditions which affect the soft tissues. Sports, Deep Tissue and Orthopaedic Massage provide relaxation to the muscles and offer necessary flexibility to the body. They enhances blood circulation in the affected areas thereby reliving the patient of pain and helping faster healing of the injured area. These forms of massage relax painful areas and prevent accumulation of body toxins which delay the healing process.
Orthopaedic massage is considered an advanced discipline within the field of medical massage, utilising a multi-disciplinary approach to assessment and treatment.
Medical Massage is not only restricted to medical patients; it has become popular for those with intense back pain, shoulder pain and arthritis. Many athletes around the world undergo regular orthopaedic massage sessions to relieve them from stress they experience in their profession. This form of massage is also common among those who suffer from age related pain (joints and back).
To determine the exact underlying condition we at Riverview Clinic® use myofascial release, neuro muscular therapy, PNF stretching, strengthening protocols, and optimising performance in athletes (reducing injuries and resulting in pain-free movement for optimal performance).
