Massage Therapy and Circulation

Our Red Bank massage therapist also helps our patients with improving blood circulation. Massage treatment will allow blood to flow easier throughout the body while simultaneously moving toxins and waste away from critical regions including the organs and muscles. Another great result from effective massage therapy is that it could lower blood pressure over time. Lowering blood pressure is especially important for our patients with heart conditions and pulmonary diseases.

Improving Range of Motion with Massage

Massage therapy will help patients increase their range of motion. Whether due to age, injury, or just plain lack of movement, the body’s tendons, ligaments, and muscles begin to tighten up. This gradual tightening of our body creates a loss in motion and in-turn disables us from doing things we enjoy. Massage therapy at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation helps patients regain that motion and give back the ability to live life to its fullest. Our therapists will work on restoring that range of motion by implementing techniques that will help promote circulation that serves to provide natural lubricants between joints and muscles. Our Red Bank massage therapists will also work on stretching muscles and tendons to revitalize the body and return original flexibility and movement. By keeping our bodies flexible and loose, we can prevent a lot of potential injuries and maintain our body’s health and wellness.

Headaches, Depression and Anxiety Relief through Massage

Depression and anxiety pose real problems to both our mental and physical health. Both of these disorders can lead to stress, fatigue, and even make us more susceptible to disease by decreasing the strength of our immune system. Scientific studies have shown that massage therapy can help build our immune systems by increasing our body’s levels of cells that act as our first line of defense against viruses. Many of our patients at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation have stated that receiving massage therapy at our Red Bank facility allows them to feel more relaxed and healthy during their week. These patients have also mentioned that their newly found relaxation helps them cope and release their feelings of anxiety that have stricken them in the past.

Headaches can also be disabling for an individual. Many of our patients at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation have come to us with excruciating tension headaches, migraines, and headaches resulting from lack of sleep or poor diet. Research proves a direct relationship between neck pain and headaches. Massage can be an excellent therapeutic method to heal these types of headaches. Massage therapy relaxes muscles. This relaxed state will ease the tightness and pressures built up in our bodies that help create headaches.

Massage Therapy after Surgery and Injury

“Many of our patients have told us that they were under the impression that surgery alone would fix everything. Many have underestimated the rehabilitation process that comes along with that path.” – Thomas Dandrea, DC.

Rehabilitation after an injury or surgery can take a long period of time to take lasting effect. We at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation feel that a very effective approach to numerous types of rehabilitation is to implement a segment of massage therapy in our patient’s recovery process. Our Red Bank massage therapists have been integrated into numerous patient rehabilitation programs for sports injuries, post-operative surgeries on the back and extremities, and even in the case of injuries obtained in day to day accidents such as auto accidents and workplace mishaps. Massage therapy can play an important piece to the rehabilitation process by promoting the body’s muscle and joint movement as well as making the body’s muscles and organs more receptive to nutrients such as minerals and vitamins.

Swedish Massage: This type of massage is one of the most common and popular massage therapies available. Swedish massage utilizes five different massage techniques. The first technique used is called effleurage, also known as the “light touch” technique. This technique is used to prepare the muscles for deeper tissue massage. The second technique in a Swedish massage is kneading which is the first step in beginning to work the deeper tissues during the session. The third technique is friction where the palms of the hands are used in a circular motion to release pressure in the muscles. Vibration is the fourth technique in a Swedish massage and percussion is the fifth which is light tapping on the patient’s body.

Deep Muscle Tissue Massage: Our Red Bank massage therapists at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation use deep tissue massages to work deeper muscles and connective tissue in the effort to realign these muscles and relieve deep pressure and tension that is commonly formed. Deep tissue massages are very often used on the neck, shoulders, and back. This type of massage focuses on these deeper muscles and alleviates pain and discomfort that is created from a variety of problems including Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pain, and injuries from accidents.

Myofascial Release: This form of massage is very beneficial for alleviating pain and increasing range of motion. Myofascial Release therapy is based on the understanding of the body’s fascial system. Fascia is like a sweater-woven muscle system within our bodies. This form of massage therapy focuses on this system and utilizes techniques to relax this group of muscles and promote a better range of motion and remove pain caused by tightness, pressure build-up, scarring, and more. The fascial system is interwoven throughout our body so any tightness, strain, or pull in this system can inadvertently affect every part of our body and create an array of symptoms and issues. Myofascial Release will eradicate those problems in the fascial system and help you return back to a healthy life.

Massage Therapy Can Help Many Types of Conditions

Massage Therapy at our Red Bank Wellness Facility is designed to provide relief for many different types of conditions ranging from musculoskeletal problems like low back pain, neck pain, and shoulder pain to stress management and energy balance. Our Red Bank massage therapists treat many different types of pain conditions every day.

Monmouth County Frozen Shoulder Syndrome Treatment and Myofascial Release Massage Technique

Frozen Shoulder Syndrome is a complicated condition that can have an underlying metabolic cause such as diabetes or metabolic syndrome. It can be caused from a chronically pinched nerve in the neck and/or the shoulder. Regardless of the cause, our Monmouth County massage therapists are trained to treat Frozen Shoulder Syndrome. The best massage approach to the Frozen Shoulder Syndrome is through a technique called Myofascial Release. This technique uses manual sustained pressure at different key points on the muscle until the tight and taut muscle band releases and softens. Sustained pressure is used from 10 seconds to as long as 60 seconds per muscle point. This is based on the work of Dr. Janet Travell, M.D. Dr. Travell used this technique to treat President John F. Kennedy’s severe chronic low back condition.

Massage Therapy at our Red Bank Rehabilitation facility to Treat Low Back Pain

There are many causes of low back pain. Regardless of the cause, treating your back pain with massage therapy will help. Massage therapy will help low back pain for several reasons. First of all, it will improve circulation in the muscle. By improving circulation, new fresh blood will flow through the painful area in the muscle and replace the inflammation and swelling in the area. The improved circulation will reduce the pain. Second, by treating the area of pain naturally with manual massage, the muscle will respond by loosening and increased flexibility will follow. In other words, massage therapy will help you move better.
