What is Remedial Massage?

Remedial massage is based on the study of anatomy and physiology which is applied to treating a range of injuries and conditions. Aching muscles and joints are massaged to relieve pain and tension and to increase movement. Remedial massage helps to speed up the healing process.

Remedial massage can help many conditions, it can alleviate pain and aid the healing of sprains, strains, fractures and injuries such as whiplash. It can help chronic conditions such as arthritis, postural problems, back pain and repetitive strain injuries. Remedial massage offers relief from stress and anxiety and can help soothe digestive disorders and headaches.

NICE guidelines on back pain and sciatica.

I was interested to read in December's newsletter from CNHC that the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has revised and now completed its guidelines for back pain and sciatica. Massage has been included under a recommendation for manual therapies when used as part of a multi-treatment package which includes exercise.
