Is Physical Therapy all about exercise and Massage?
Not really, Physical Therapy involves exercises but more specifically they’re movements designed to enhance the body’s healing, balance and pain relief. And the massage is not a general type of massage but more accurately a “mobilization” of soft-tissue structures for the purpose of normalizing them, which results in enhanced pain relief, balance and musculature and healing. Massage may be part of your treatment. Contrary to common belief, massage does not increase circulation. Physical therapists are movement, bio mechanical and healing specialists requiring a license from the state board. Physical Therapists are licensed, board certified movement/bio mechanical specialists who are trained in variety techniques that may help with your recovery.
