What Are The Benefits Of Remedial Massage?
Remedial massage therapy can provide a number of benefits for those who are suffering from muscle pain and tension.
Your remedial massage therapist will work to release knots and trigger points in the muscles, which can help to reduce pain and improve range of motion.
Remedial massage can also help to improve circulation and lymphatic flow, which can speed up the healing process. If you are looking for a way to reduce pain and improve your overall health, remedial massage therapy may be the solution for you.

Treatment for Sciatica
Our team at Modern Medicine consists of experienced allied health professionals from a range of disciplines, which allows us to approach your care holistically and collaboratively.
We will provide a thorough assessment to diagnose sciatica and identify the underlying cause. This involves a discussion regarding your symptoms, lifestyle and the history of your pain, and a physical examination. An imaging test, such as an x-ray, MRI, or CT scan, may be required in certain circumstances to confirm the diagnosis and plan treatment. Recovery time for sciatica will depend on the severity of your condition.
Depending on your needs, one or more of our therapy options may prove beneficial for you.
Using a personalised exercise physiology program can help to improve certain underlying issues, strengthen and improve mobility of the surrounding area, and minimise deconditioning in the rest of your body. Education and guidance regarding activity modification, posture, and injury prevention can also be included.
