Medical/Sports Massage

Massage therapy is manual manipulation of soft body tissues used to improve the functionality of the circulatory, lymphatic, and nervous systems. At Gardner Chiropractic & Injury, we combine movement, pressure, and depth to relax and heal various muscles and tissues in the body.

Benefits of Massage Therapy

Generally, massage therapy is used to enhance the circulation of blood, restore flexibility and alleviate pain, muscle spasms, and stress. During treatment, patients are asked to either lay down or sit while Dr. Gardner targets the areas that are causing pain.

Many patient cases have proven massage therapy to improve the following:

  • Injury Recovery
  • Blood Circulation
  • Flexibility
  • Sprains/strains
  • Muscle trigger point relief
  • Adhesion reduction
  • Muscle Stiffness
  • Muscle Tension
  • Posture
  • Excessive Scar Tissue Formation
  • Headaches
  • Anxiety
  • Mental Relaxation

Sports Injury Massage

Most sports-related injuries are soft tissue injuries such as muscle sprains, ligament sprains, or injuries caused by overuse. Athletes benefit from massage therapy as pre-event preparation and post-event recovery treatments.

Depending on the sport that our patients are involved in and the area of the body that is causing them pain or discomfort, we offer multiple techniques that focus on the affected area.

"First class" is how I would describe Dr. Paul Gardner. I thought there was no hope when I suffered aggravating neck pain but after one visit I felt brand new. Dr. Gardner is the only chiropractor I would ever consider if you want true professional treatment. He is able to narrow down the area of pain and his adjustments make a world of difference. He was also able to identify that I had a muscle strain when I thought it may of been a more serious injury. I truly feel he cares about the well-being of his patients and is the best chiropractor in Central Florida. Brian L.
