Dynamic Orthopaedic Massage Therapy

As part of our comprehensive approach to care, Baldwin Bone & Joint physicians and providers may prescribe a treatment plan for a patient that includes orthopaedic massage therapy.

In addition to bringing balance to the body and helping to prevent injury, orthopaedic massage therapy is often used in rehabilitation to treat the cause of muscle imbalances, such as poor posture and tension, and may also prevent chronic aches and pains in the future.

Who may benefit from massage therapy?

Patients who suffer from a variety of medical issues including:

  • plantar fasciitis
  • frozen shoulder
  • piriformis syndrome
  • migraines
  • chronic neck and back pain
