Massage Therapy Q & A

I’m sore. Will massage therapy help or make things worse? 

Not at all. Massage therapy is a noninvasive treatment that involves the manual manipulation of your skin, muscles, and other soft tissues. 

During treatment, the Pinnacle Sports Performance and Rehabilitation team uses different pressures, hand movements, and manipulative techniques to relieve stress, loosen tight muscles, and encourage healthy circulation.

Some people associate massage therapy with spas and relaxation. Though massage can certainly promote well-being, it’s also an excellent way to treat pain and stiffness without medication or surgery.

What types of conditions can benefit from massage therapy?

The Pinnacle Sports Performance and Rehabilitation team uses massage therapy to treat various medical conditions, including:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Joint pain
  • Sciatica
  • Auto-accident injuries
  • Pregnancy-related pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Work injuries
  • Migraine and tension-type headaches

Some people use massage therapy to speed up recovery after playing sports or participating in other physically demanding activities. 

Massage therapy is all the same, right?

Nope. The Pinnacle Sports Performance and Rehabilitation team offers several types of massage therapy, including:

Swedish massage

Swedish massage uses gentle touch, rhythmic tapping, and joint movements to promote relaxation. It helps calm the nervous system and promotes a sense of well-being. If you’ve never had a massage before, Swedish massage is a great place to start.

Deep tissue massage

This type of massage uses slow strokes and direct pressure to relieve tense muscles beneath your skin. It’s a go-to therapy for people suffering from injuries, general muscle tightness, and chronic muscle pain.

Sports massage

Sports massage focuses on specific muscle groups that undergo general wear-and-tear while playing sports or doing other physical activities. It combines firm pressure, kneading, and tapping to increase flexibility, prevent injuries, and promote healing.

Trigger point massage

Trigger point massage focuses on trigger points –– tight muscle knots beneath your skin. It uses focused, direct pressure to break up these areas of tissue, increasing blood flow to the treatment site and relieving pain. 

What are the benefits of massage therapy?

Undergoing massage therapy at Pinnacle Sports Performance and Rehabilitation offers various benefits, including:

  • Reduced stress and anxiety
  • Better sleep
  • Less pain and muscle tension
  • Improved immune function
