Total Knee Replacement surgery has become increasingly common, but stiffness is a troubling side effect. The scar tissue caused by surgery will vary from patient to patient, but this tough fibrous material can limit your range of motion.
Massage therapy has proven effective in breaking down scar tissue, which improves the recovery process. Another advantage of massage, according to Dr. David Katz of Yale University’s medical school, is that it’s “free of any known side effects and, according to our results, clearly shows therapeutic promise.” Even for people whose knees feel fine, massage increases serotonin which acts as a natural pain reliever, reducing anxiety and promoting deep sleep. Anyone facing stress on knees, joints or anywhere else can benefit from the effects of a massage therapy. Call 480-540-7555 to schedule.
