Massage therapy is a safe and effective form of therapy, involving the manipulation of soft tissues within a specific area of the body. It can be a very effective form of therapy in the treatment of podiatry related conditions.

What is massage therapy?

Massage therapy uses various different manipulation techniques in order to relieve pain and treat various injuries within the foot and lower leg. From gentle rubbing of the affected area, to more intense massage of deeper muscles, massage therapy works to reduce healing times and improve function.

What podiatry related conditions can massage therapy help with?

Massage therapy can help in the treatment of the following podiatry related conditions;

  • Tight calves
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Tendinopathy

How does massage therapy work?

Massage therapy can work in the following two ways;

Improving circulation
When an area becomes injured, waste products can accumulate in that area, which subsequently becomes stiff and painful. Applying pressure using massage can help to clear such waste products, improving the circulation of blood and oxygen to the area. This in turn can improve the body's ability to heal itself and enhance recovery.

Relaxation of soft tissues
Massage therapy can also work to reduce the inflammation within a muscle which often occurs following trauma. This inflammation can lead to compression of surrounding nerves causing irritation and discomfort. Massage therapy works by relaxing these muscles, reducing any inflammation and preventing nerve compression from occurring.

What are the benefits of massage therapy?

There are a number of benefits associated with the treatment of podiatry related conditions using massage therapy. They include;

  • Improved rate of recovery
  • It eliminates the need to go down alternative routes with greater associated risk such i.e. surgery or prescription drugs
  • Improved muscle condition ' the flexibility of the muscle increases, reducing the risk of problems recurring in the future
