ORTHOPAEDIC MASSAGE is a type of REMEDIAL MASSAGE that assists in injury recovery & postural improvement by increasing soft tissue flexibility, reducing muscle tension & spasm, restoring normal range of motion to affected joints, and addressing the biomechanical dysfunctions which caused the injury or postural problem in the first place. In particular, the restoration of normal, pain-free movement is crucial to a speedy yet thorough recovery, and is the aim of Orthopaedic Massage. This is achieved through deep compression techniques and friction along or against the grain of the muscle fibres, as well as kneading the impaired tissue to increase local blood flow to the affected area. Additionally, a specialised form of therapist-assisted stretching called "Muscle Energy Technique" (or "MET") may be used during Orthopaedic Massage sessions to increase movement & mobility. This technique involves brief contraction of a specific group of muscles, followed by relaxation of those muscles and gentle movement into a new, improved range of motion.
