MEDICINE DOESN’T HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS

Medical massage is not a replacement for your physician or surgeon, but modern medicine is not the answer to every physical problem you may encounter. Surgery may repair the bone or muscle, but often times the patient still suffers other issues. For instance, examples include, persistent pain, reduced range of motion or lack of strength.  In other situations, medical tests like MRI’s and x-rays reveal no medical reason for a patient’s complaints.   Consequently, all the doctor can offer is pain medication, which comes with a wide variety of side effects, including addiction.

PalpitationMEDICAL MASSAGE CAN FILL THE PAIN GAP

Palpitation, the primary tool of assessment used by a Medical Massage Practitioner, can identify issues medical tests cannot.  Palpation is a highly technical skill requiring significant knowledge of anatomy.  However, a knowledge of anatomy is only the beginning.  A Medical Massage Practitioner goes through significant training to understand subtle differences in tissue, muscles and organs.  They must learn what these differences indicate and how they can be treated.  As a result, with practice, they can effectively utilize the technique of palpation and apply the proper therapy.

Much of the therapy provided by a Medical Massage Practitioner can be traced to problems within the skektal and fascial systems of the body.  Most everyone is familiar with the skeletal system or skeleton.  These are the bones which provide a framework for our bodies.   In contrast, the fascial system is less well-known.

netbagThe fascia is a web-like system of connective tissues holding your muscles and organs in place.  Think of it like a net bag holding fruit in the grocery store, but a whole lot stronger.  It has been attributed with up to 2000 pounds of tensile strength.  Therefore, you could be in a bad collision and, as with the tomatoes or apricots, your liver could suffer damage.  However, the liver will remain in the net bag of the fascial system, unless you also suffer a severe laceration in that area.
