Injury Prevention

The massage therapist’s most important job is to work with a client’s pain and dysfunction before it becomes an actual injury. Often, patterns of pain and tension predispose an area to injury by causing inefficient or unbalanced movement.

For example, we work on Trigger Points and tension in the muscles of the lower leg before this pain and tension results in a more severe injury, like shin splints, stress fractures, or torn ligaments. We learn to explain this process to a client and then specifically plan out the appropriate bodywork and number of sessions needed to get the specific results.
