Woodlands Spine understands that patients need options, including those that help them heal without surgery. That is why we implemented a program that expands our non-operative services for patients. Our goal is that most of our patients not require a surgical intervention.

Massage therapy helps relieve pain by rubbing the body’s soft tissue, such as muscles. Tension and pain can be reduced with this therapy, as well as improving blood flow and encouraging relaxation. There are over 80 different types of massage that range from gentle massage to others that are intense.

What Massage Therapy Can Do

Massage therapy can help relieve pain and promote patients to relax, which is a major issue for those with muscle pain. It also helps relieve pressure on the nerves and restore normal joint movement.

Types of Massage Therapy

Deep tissue massage is a type of intense massage and is used to treat long-lasting tension. Another common type of massage therapy is trigger point massage. Similar to deep tissue massage, trigger point massage is not gentle and may be uncomfortable to some. However, by applying firm pressure on the knots or tight muscle helps make the muscle relax. Swedish massage is very gentle and can help those who need help moving their joints and relieve muscle tension.

The type of massage we perform on you will depend on the type of pain you are experiencing. It is common to combine massage therapy with other pain relief methods if you choose to do so. Many find relief with only massage therapy while others need further help, such as medication.
