Healing Hands Injury Rehabilitation Massage
Why is Rehabilitation so important after injury?
Do you have:-
Recurrent ankle sprains? A sharp pain when you raise your arm? Neck pain when you turn your head? An annoying niggle in your buttock/back of thigh which comes and goes? A weak wrist following a fracture?
The primary aim of injury rehabilitation is to enable you to return to full function, pain free in the shortest possible time. Without rehabilitation at Healing Hands Massage, your injury will ‘feel better’ after a while. This is the point where many people will assume that their injury is back to normal but it is not and re-injury can easily occur. Joints may feel stiff and lack their full range of movement. Tissues such as ligaments and tendons can take up to a year to regain full strength. Muscles will have become weak and imbalances can occur when you stop using the injured limb correctly and substitute a different movement.
All this may not be obvious until you do something that over stresses the area such as lifting a heavy object, DIY, gardening, running or jumping, going back to training, then… wham… excruciating pain and back to days or weeks of hobbling around!
A Healing Hands rehabilitation massage programme will be tailored to your needs and lifestyle. The programme will require several appointments to make sure that you are progressing and exercises need to be changed as your injury heals. This is really important to accelerate your recovery and stop you injuring something else!
