Physical Therapy at Vaida utilizes a wide variety of manual/hands-on techniques that are designed to restore function, prevent injury, alleviate pain, as well as many other benefits. Our Physical Therapist addresses soft tissue and joint problems with myofascial release, sports massage, and functional exercise to treat various musculoskeletal dysfunctions and allow patients to reach their full potential.
Sports massage is geared toward all kinds of athletes, from professionals to weekend- warriors. The technique is specific to the athlete's sport of choice, and focuses on areas of the body that are overused and placed under excessive stress. Commonly, this targets muscle-tendon junctions and joint capsules.
Sports Massage is a crucial component of a training regimen, and can be used to enhance performance and reduce recovery time. Studies have shown decreased muscle soreness in athletes who received massage before or after exercise.
