Massage therapy for pain relief in Tacoma, Washington

Therapeutic massage, or as we call it in our disc pain treatment program, Manual Therapy is a very effective component we use to manually break up and soften scar tissue that develops from chronic inflammation and lower back pain

Massage therapy for pain relief in Tacoma, WashingtonMany back pain victims suffer from very tight and imbalanced spinal and lower back muscles which can lead to inflammation in the muscle tissue.

Chronic inflammation of muscles or connective tissue can lead to non flexible scar tissue much like the gristle in certain cuts of beef.

Very tough and inflexible tissue or muscles can result in your loss of flexibility and ability to move properly which can lead to more inflammation due to lack of muscle contractability to pump out inflammation when your muscles are supposed to active and move.

Our certified massage technicians are experts at softening these chronic inflamed connective tissue and muscles to increase your ability to move and normally pump out the inflammation to decrease nerve pressure and pain.

Many patients perceive massage as an hour long session for stress relief, relaxation of fun. This is not the focus, intent or result of Manual Therapy. The difference is highly focused and modified manipulation of muscles and tissues directed by the doctor to decrease pain.

Manual Therapy type of massage does not always feel very good while performed but the benefits of increased movement and decreased back pain is a very welcome result.
