often plays an important role in the individualized treatment plans that we develop at Advanced Physical Therapy
for our patients throughout Philadelphia
and the neighboring communities. Massage-based techniques can be effective for both injuries and prevention, and many patients are able to heal with massage therapy exclusively. This is often the case with some chronic pain conditions, such as severe headaches. Massages can counteract the pain caused by a migraine but also reduce the frequency at which the migraines occur. Other conditions that we use massage therapy for include muscle pain as well as whiplash and other accident injuries.
