Remedial Massage

Remedial massage aims to alleviate and aid repair of acute and chronic musculoskeletal problems brought about by muscular and fascial tension. It typically involves deep tissue/ trigger point/ sports massage (good for athletes), and postural corrective work ideal for office workers and pregnant mums.

Massage helps promote blood and lymph flow, aids in the removal of waste products and promotes healing. It helps improve the elasticity of muscles and soft tissues.

Massage can be used to treat pain or can be used as a maintenance tool for the body as it can help prevent soft tissue injuries and reduce the effects of postural strain. 

Remedial massage is effective in the treatment of the following conditions:

  • Lower back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Tension Headaches
  • Postural strain due to computer use at work / home
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Arthritis
  • Sports and Occupational Injuries
  • Poor Circulation
  • Fluid Retention
  • Pregnancy related pain and discomfort

Interesting how powerful the language used by a healthcare practitioner is on influencing their patients' mindset and recovery.

Recommended management for treating back pain (published in The Lancet, March 2018) as discussed with Curves Rowville members today:

First Line Management
• Advise to stay active
• Patient education
• Return to work plan
• Exercise therapy: walking, pilates, gym, yoga, swimming, group exercise etc.

Second Line Management
• Manual Therapy: spinal manipulation, remedial massage, acupuncture/ dry needling.
• Approximately 90% of cases of acute back pain should improve in 4-6 weeks with the above treatments
• Chronic back pain (more than 12 weeks duration) requires a multidisciplinary approach so consider continuing the above treatments in conjunction with psychology treatments such as cognitive behavioural therapy and mindfulness.

If Above Management Fails
• Diagnostic Imaging: If back pain is unresponsive to 6-12 weeks of above management consider X-ray, CT or MRI. In most cases of acute back pain diagnostic imaging is not necessary as the condition improves in 4-6 weeks and imaging does not change the diagnosis or management. Exceptions are worsening neurological deficits, trauma, history of cancer etc.
• Drugs: Non Steroidal Inflammatory Drugs may have some limited benefit for acute back pain but very little benefit for chronic back pain. Opioids or pain killers have no real benefit for back pain.
• Surgery: Most surgeries are as effective or if not less effective than exercise and conservative management as listed above. There are certain indications for surgery such as instability and worsening neurological deficits.

Conditions like spinal disc bulges and spinal disc degeneration are normal physiological processes that also occur in the population without back pain.
