What is clinical massage?

Clinical Massage - sometimes referred to as orthopedic massage - is the clinical application of various soft tissue and manual therapy techniques designed to evaluate and treat soft tissue injuries. These include massage therapy, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, muscle-energy techniques, deep tissue massage, and many others.

Clinical soft tissue therapy can be effective in treating a number of conditions, which include but are not limited to: tendonitis and other tendon injuries, whiplash, low back pain, myofascial pain (pain due to failure of muscle and connective tissue to glide properly), sprains, strains, sciatica, painful trigger points, repetitive strain injuries, thoracic outlet syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome, post injury or surgical rehabilitation, sports injuries, headaches, edema...

The primary goals of Clinical Massage are to decrease pain, increase range of motion, and help restore normal function to the soft tissues of the body - primarily muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Clinical soft tissue therapy is normally performed with a specific goal for functional outcome.
