Massage’s Role in Physical Therapy

Massage is often used to promote healing in the physical therapy process. Studies have found that muscles heal faster when massage is used. It may squeeze inflammation-causing cells out of the muscle to encourage recovery.

Therapeutic massage also increases blood flow throughout the body. It delivers essential oxygen and nutrients to damaged tissues to promote repair. It breaks done scar tissue to restore natural muscle movement.

Remedial massage can repair damaged tissues and fibers to decrease pain and increase healing. It loosens muscles that are tight and tense. It reduces restrictions that interfere with recovery.

Swedish massage is also often used in physical therapy. It encourages lymphatic drainage that removes waste products from the tissue to promote healing. It also reduces anxiety and stress which can slow down healing.
