Massage Therapy in the Tampa Bay Area
Gulf Coast Injury Center incorporates massage therapy as part of our injury & pain treatment.
This therapeutic modality can be beneficial for healthy individuals as well as for the chronically ill or injured. The deeper forms of massage therapy are used with the intent to release adhesions in the facial layer, ligaments and other soft tissues. Lighter forms of massage are suspected to have a more neurological effect acting as a "counter-stimulant" that may interrupt pain perception and the neurological stimulation cycle that perpetuates chronic pain.
