A Complete Treatment Plan.
The therapeutic touch of massage is safe and effective. In addition, it is a non-pharmaceutical-based form of relief, making it a perfect complement to other health care approaches and interventions such as working with Physical Therapists, Acupuncturists, Chiropractors, Exercise Specialists, Doctors, & Pharmacists.
Massage works exceptionally well as part of a complete treatment plan in conjunction with physiotherapy for injury recovery, especially for Motor Vehicle Accidents, strains and sprains. Many clients find incorporating massage and physiotherapy treatments give them the most optimal and efficient healing outcomes and help them manage the physical discomfort of stiff and painful muscles as they work through the healing process, therapeutic exercises, etc.
Massage doesn’t cure conditions. Instead, massage works with your body and nervous system to promote the optimum circumstances for the body to heal, find relief, and manage chronic conditions (mental or physical). Some things to look for when considering if massage therapy is the right option for you are:
Depending on the client’s goals, sometimes a single appointment is enough. Other times, a series of appointments are needed, with gradual improvements realized after each appointment. Even after they are healed from an injury, many clients find that keeping up regularly scheduled massage appointments can help them function at their best. For instance, clients may come every week or every two weeks when first working through an injury and then come once a month or once every two to three months for help. You are not locked into any plan at Innovation; we only want you to come in for massage appointments if you find massage helpful.
There are several different massage techniques, but at Innovation, we don’t make clients guess which one might be best for their needs when they book. Instead, the RMT and the client discuss the client’s goals at the beginning of each appointment and create a customized plan for that appointment. The RMT adjusts the pressure in each appointment to suit the client’s tolerance, the stage of healing, condition, and goals. So, you don’t have to worry if you prefer lighter or deeper pressure; you will get to work together with the RMTs to get the pressure that is right for you.
To make the experience as smooth as possible for our clients, Innovation Physical Therapy Direct Bills most major insurance companies and always provides a receipt the client can submit themselves if direct billing is not possible. Additionally, all massage therapists at Innovation are Registered Massage Therapists with a minimum of 2200 hours of training so that insurance companies will accept claims for their services.
Innovation clients for physical therapy and massage include individuals on WCB claims, MVA claims, and Military members (currently serving and veterans), so please contact us if you fall into these categories and need our assistance!
