The Knead MedMassage uses a combination of Massage Therapy and Physical Medicine/Rehabilitation Techniques.
What is Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation?
Physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R), is a branch of medicine that aims to enhance and restore functional ability and quality of life to those with physical impairments or disabilities. This is a goal oriented, medical procedure that focuses on restoring optimal function to people with injuries to the muscles, bones, tissues, and nervous system.
The major concern that PM&R deals with as a medical field is the ability of a person to function optimally within the limitations placed upon them by an impairment or disease process . The emphasis is not only on the restoration of function, but also the optimization of the quality of life. A team approach to chronic conditions is emphasized to coordinate care of patients. Comprehensive Rehabilitation is provided by specialists in this field, who act as a facilitator, team leader, and medical expert for rehabilitation.
Common conditions that are treated by the rehabilitation therapists include musculoskeletal pain syndromes such as (but not limited to):
neck, mid-back, and low back pain fibromyalgia
tension type headaches ligamentous injury
tendonitis muscle spasm
migraines muscle cramping
varies sports injuries general muscle aches and pains
