Deep Tissue Therapy

Treatment Modalities

Hands-on techniques that we use in order to impact muscles or tissues on a deeper level.

Deep tissue therapy is a form of manual therapy that involves using deep pressure to reach the deeper layers of muscle tissue and fascia. The goal of deep tissue therapy is to release muscle tension, improve range of motion, and reduce pain. In the sports medicine setting, deep tissue therapy is often used to treat injuries such as muscle strains, sprains, and tendon pain. It can also be used to help alleviate chronic pain conditions such as lower back pain and neck pain.

We use a variety of techniques such as kneading, frictions, and compression to reach the deeper layers of muscle tissue.The pressure applied is intense but it should not be unbearable, and it should not cause bruising. It is a safe and effective technique that can be used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan for sports-related injuries. Your practitioner will work with you to create a treatment plan that fits your specific needs, which may include deep tissue therapy in combination with other forms of manual therapy and exercise.
