Massage Therapy in Katy, TX

At FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers - Cinco Ranch East, TX, no treatment is complete without hands-on care. Our therapists have many years of training and experience in several types of manual and massage therapy. You might be familiar with the types of relaxing massage you would get in a spa, but manual therapy techniques are more injury or condition-oriented and focus on specific areas of the body.

After an injury, muscles, ligaments, and tendons (soft tissues) tend to tighten up, restricting circulation, contributing to pain, and decreasing joint movement. With techniques such as soft tissue and joint mobilization, neuromuscular massage and myofascial release, physical therapists manipulate soft tissues and connective tissue (sheath that covers bones, nerves, and soft tissues) to restore motion and ease the discomfort caused by muscle tightness and spasm.

When performed by skilled FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers therapists, manual and massage physical therapy can:

  • Relax muscles and ease muscle spasms
  • Increase range of motion and flexibility
  • Improve circulation
  • Enhance post-surgical rehabilitation
  • Decrease recovery time for orthopedic problems, neurological disorders, and sports injuries
  • Improve posture and balance
  • Strengthen the immune system

Why Seek Treatment from a Massage Therapist in Katy, TX

You may remember the day your pain started. Perhaps you were in a car accident, fell, or had a mishap at work. For many, pain sneaks up while sitting at a computer or looking at a phone, performing other repetitive tasks like shovelling, working as a hairdresser, or on an assembly line. These are all good reasons to seek treatment from a massage therapist. 

Your pain could be severe, but it needn’t be! Mild pain can increase over time, and working out the stiffness in your joints and muscles makes a huge difference to how you feel overall. 

Severe pain or discomfort in specific areas or all over aches and pains respond well to massage therapy. 

Massage physical therapy with a registered massage therapist at FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers begins with an assessment of your situation. Your doctor or physical therapist may recommend you receive massage physical therapy. Still, just you and your massage therapist can decide if massage therapy would be beneficial.

How often should you get massage therapy?

How often you get a massage is a personal decision. Your massage therapist or physical therapist may recommend a specific frequency based on your condition and how you respond. Some people enjoy weekly massages, some every other week, and many prefer a monthly schedule or make an appointment based on how they feel.
