Why do doctors prescribe medical massage?
Medical massage can provide effective relief from pain, soreness, and injury.
4 reasons doctors prescribe medical massage include:
1. Treatment of musculoskeletal issues;
2. Physical therapy to build strength and flexibility;
3. Treatment of sports injuries, car accident injuries, muscle pains and cramps, migraines, and edema;
4. As a complement to psychotherapeutic programs.
Note: A doctor will write specific recommendations for the licensed massage therapist to follow and will monitor the treatment and recovery.
