Massage Therapy in Burnley & Bolton
Massage therapy is an excellent treatment technique which aims to treat musculoskeletal disorders and pathologies, for example; muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia. Here at Physiofusion, massage is done by all our physiotherapists and sports therapists all of which are trained and certified by HCPC and the Society of Sports Therapists (SST).
A variety of different techniques are used within massage such as; deep and soft tissue release, muscle energy techniques, myofascial trigger point release and lymphatic drainage. Massage can be used in isolation or in combination with sports rehabilitation or Physiotherapy. This can help to relieve muscular pain, improve biomechanics, increase sporting performance and decrease post activity effects, for example ‘Delayed Onset of Muscle Soreness / ’ (‘DOMS’).
