Anoka Massage and Pain Therapy is the area’s leading complementary and integrative medicine (CIM) therapy clinic specializing in pain management. Besides having on-site acupuncture treatments, Anoka Massage & Pain Therapy specializes in Medical Massage Therapy. Medical Massage is an advanced discipline of massage therapy. Our Medical Massage Therapists are highly skilled, hands-on therapists in treating those with injuries and chronic pain.
Medical Massage differs from regular massage and bodywork in that the treatment is specifically directed to resolve conditions diagnosed by a medical doctor. Patients have typically had a physician’s diagnosis and/or referral prior to receiving treatment. Medical massage is administered after a thorough assessment/evaluation by the medical massage therapist.
Your individualized Medical Massage will focus on functional outcomes and results will be measurable. Your therapist may use a variety of modalities or techniques during the treatment, but will focus the treatment on the specific areas of your body related to the diagnosis. This enhances the body’s natural self-healing process and reduces the needed recovery time from injury.
Ongoing evaluations of symptoms are tracked throughout the treatment plan to measure progress, and will be shared with your referring physician and Healthcare Providers. With proper documentation, we will directly bill your Auto Insurance or Workman’s Comp Insurance for your convenience.
Medical massage is useful in addressing conditions such as:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
