Whether you have a sports injury, an injury from a car accident, a work-related injury or a chronic or acute condition that causes pain or discomfort, massage therapy may be the answer you seek.
At Advanced Spine & Rehab, we are pleased to offer comprehensive massage therapy services to treat a wide variety of conditions and injuries.
Dating back thousands of years, massage appears in the ancient writings of cultures around the world. These include Egypt, India, Japan, China, Greece, Rome and Arabic nations. The techniques became widely used in Europe during the Renaissance and later came to the United States after two American physicians studied massage in Sweden in the 1850s. Interest in massage dwindled a bit in the 1930s and 1940s in response to advances in medical treatment, but it experienced a revival in the 1970s and continues to be a valuable form of treatment for many who seek relief from injury or illness.
The 2007 National Health Interview Survey found that an estimated 18 million U.S. adults and 700,000 children received some form of massage therapy in the previous year. In addition to being used to treat injuries, massage therapy can also help to relieve pain, reduce stress, increase relaxation and address conditions such as anxiety and depression.
