MRT has effectively resolved many injuries that were supposed to be ‘non-treatable’. Specific injuries that are treated with MRT include repetitive sprains, muscle strains, joint dysfunction, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, chronic back pain, shoulder pain, knee problems, tennis elbow and shin splits. Most of the joint and muscle related problems are actually triggered due to overexertion and sports injuries. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.
Each of these factors can cause your body to produce tough, dense scar tissue in the affected area. This scar tissue binds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely. As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons causes tendonitis, and nerves can become trapped. This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and pain. If a nerve is trapped you may also feel tingling, numbness, and weakness.
An advanced massage therapy like MRT can prove to be very effective for such problems. The massage technique comprises stretching muscles and tendons, and applying pressure to breakdown scar tissue so that blood flow can be increased to the affected areas.
Every MRT session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. The MRT provider uses their hands to evaluate the tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific movements.
