We make extensive use of massage to treat Musculoskeletal injuries. These include trigger point massage, myofascial releases, as well as some lymphatic drainage for swollen joints and muscles. The 11 Myofascial Trains as advocated by Thomas Meyers are used to integrate various body areas into a holistic approach to treat the cause-of-the-cause as well as to prevent recurrences by improving body alignment through myofascial gliding. Massage is a great adjunct to dry needling and manual therapy techniques such as joint mobilisations. Kinesiotaping may also be employed to maintain myofascial alignment. Combining these approaches with exercise makes postural control and optimisation of movement easier.
