We are a hands on physiotherapy practice and provide quality one on one physio with all patients. This can involve joint mobilisation techniques as well as massage therapy techniques. We do soft tissue massage, sports massage, deep tissue massage and general remedial massage with the aim of providing pain relief.
We highly recommend massage therapy as a treatment technique on its own as well as part of an overall physiotherapy treatment. We have a remedial massage therapist on staff with health fund rebates applicable.
We treat many acute sports injuries as well as people with chronic pain issues. The massage therapy techniques vary depending on the type of injury or ailment. Early intervention with gentle massage techniques is highly recommended for pain relief and reducing inflammation. Everyone reacts differently to massage therapy so your physiotherapist or remedial massage therapist will usually take a cautious approach to see how a person reacts to the treatment.
Being a 7 day physiotherapy service we see many patients on a weekend who have had an extreme reaction to a deep tissue massage elsewhere. We consequently take a very gentle approach with your subsequent treatment to settle the condition down.
Initially we like to do a half hour session of massage therapy with patients to see how they respond to the treatment. If you cope well, we then look at longer sessions up to an hour, if appropriate, for full body massage.
Massage Therapy is used to manage and reduce pain, increase circulation and immune system function, reduce stress, increase muscle flexibility and joint function, as well as contribute to a sense of well-being. It is known that there is a direct link between our physical health and our mental or emotional state. Massage therapy is a therapy which can positively affect both. So, get in touch with Brisbane 7 Day Physiotherapy today and get better, faster.
Our massage therapists, based in Ferny Grove, will help get you on the road to recovery.
