Who Can Benefit from Medical Massage:

Patients who have been in an accident, experienced trauma, or muscular-skeletal injury find relief and healing from medical massage therapy.  Whether an injury occurred at work or home or is the result of a sport or automobile accident, this massage modality aims to increase range of motion, while promoting the healing mechanisms of the body.  In addition, sufferers of migraines, chronic neck and back pain and edema of joints find great relief from medical massage modalities.

What to Expect:

Medical massage is focal point oriented and therefore varies greatly from full body massages.  Franklin will use a variety of techniques to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, soreness and stiffness and optimize the functionality the area of concern.  This approach frequently goes beyond soft tissue manipulation, as devises such as tens units and ultrasound are utilized to further speed the process of healing.  Contrast therapy (hot and cold therapies) and Graston techniques stimulate blood flow to reduce inflammation and pain.  Medical massage has a simple goal: with the benefits of treatment, the patient should be able to return to their fully functioning life sooner and with more ease.
