Remedial

Remedial massage is the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. It’s performed by massage therapists in both our Gold Coast and Underwood clinic’s to create favourable conditions for the body to return to normal health after injury and is defined by the premise that the treatment can reasonably reverse certain physical effects a patient may be presenting. If a patient has suffered a moderate injury resulting in structural pain and/or loss of function, then remediation is required to reduce or eliminate pain and restore that function.

Remedial massage is designed to balance muscle/soft tissue length, tension, tone which will in turn promote the return to normal joint/capsular/bone position; increase the flow of blood and lymph, particularly in the injured areas, thus removing blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions resulting from injury.

A remedial massage therapist must be qualified and have knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology to determine where to treat patients. Their services must be based on best practice principles and before any remedial massage treatment begins, a thorough patient consultation and assessment is to be performed to ascertain the patient’s current health status. If the patient is suitable for remedial massage and relying on the patient’s feedback to identify the areas that require attention, the therapist can then apply the relevant and appropriate treatment.

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger points are areas of muscle where the fibres are bunched together and irritated. Sometimes they can cause intense pain or a pinching sensation where the trigger point is located, or may produce a ‘referred’ pain that may be felt in another area of the body. Active trigger points or areas of extreme tightness can cause discomfort and muscle spasm until they are released, usually by firm pressure on the area.

Trigger Point Therapy can be provided by our qualified massage therapists in both our Gold Coast and Underwood clinics, and this massage therapy can assist with:

  • shoulder pain
  • neck pain
  • headaches
  • sciatica
  • arm and hand pain
  • TMJ issues
  • tennis elbow
  • carpal tunnel
  • and other unexplained areas of pain

Injury Management

Muscles make up the largest part of our body by both volume and mass. The next largest is the skeleton which, teamed with the nervous system, is our locomotive structure.

When your body is perfectly balanced as a whole, you are functioning fluidly however if this is not the case, you have the potential for pain. Pain will naturally affect us in different ways as we are all built differently; whether in size or neutral response.

Qualified MASSAGE THERAPISTS ARE MUSCLE SPECIALISTS. Doctor’s have specialists for every part of the anatomy; everything apart from the muscles. Muscles are most commonly the forgotten factor, however they have such a great impact on our wellbeing and if not treated effectively, could relate to ongoing pain and discomfort. Injury Management helps to take care of your muscles, relieving pain and discomfort.

Myotherapy

Myotherapists assess and physically treat myofascial pain, injury and dysfunction affecting movement and mobility. Myotherapy is applied in the preventative, corrective and rehabilitative phases of therapy to restore and maintain the normal integrity of the soft tissue structure (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia) of the human body.

Pain or symptoms caused by muscle (myo) or fascia is described as myofascial. Myofascial pain is usually not specific and is often described by the patient as a ‘deep ache’, ‘tightness’ or ‘tenderness’ in an area. It can vary in intensity and radiate to other areas. Other symptoms can include reduced range of motion of muscles and joints, stiffness, fatigue, weakness, numbness or a tingling sensation. There are many other symptoms depending on the condition and patients can have one or many symptoms.

Common conditions that Myotherapists can treat include:

  • Sporting & occupational injuries
  • Stiffness & pain associated with poor posture
  • Associated joint & vertebral dysfunction & pain
  • Acute & chronic conditions affecting function & mobility
  • Scoliosis / Kyphosis
  • Headaches / migraines
  • Acute and chronic stiff and painful neck
  • Chronic overuse syndromes – tendonitis, RSI, tennis/golfer’s elbow, carpal tunnel
  • Acute & chronic back pain / ‘sciatica’
  • Shoulder pain, impingement syndrome, frozen shoulder
  • Hand & finger numbness / tingling – thoracic outlet syndrome
  • Knee, leg & foot pain – shin splints, patella tracking dysfunction, runners knee, ankle sprains
  • Arthritis / Multiple Sclerosis

  • Chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia
  • Pain & dysfunction associated with stress & tension
  • Rehabilitative stage of an injury or illness

What to expect

Assessment – Clinical assessment is reliant on history taking, examination routines of particular joints or regions, assisted by highly developed tactile, palpatory skills and a thorough understanding of joint and muscular assessment procedures. These skills distinguish Myotherapy from other physical therapies. Assessment of potential causes of dysfunction is also important, as is a detailed postural examination.

Treatment – Soft tissue manipulation, Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial dry needling, Myofascial release, Cupping, Thermal therapy / Cryotherapy, TENS machines, Postural assessment and correction, Corrective exercises (stretches, strength), Core stability exercises and workshops, Diet and nutritional advice.
