WHAT IS THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE?
It doesn’t matter if it’s from recent surgery, an acute sports injury or anything else in between: nobody wants to deal with pain. If you’re looking for some extra relief on top of your typical physical therapy exercises, it might be a good idea to consider visiting CORE Physical Therapy’s massage therapist. Here’s why:
The Benefits of Therapeutic Massage
Therapeutic massage may be recommended after surgery or as part of an ongoing physical therapy regimen for acute injuries or chronic pain. They are very popular amongst avid athletes as well. Targeted massages will help reduce pain and stress as you recover from specific joint and muscle problems. Some of the key benefits include:
• Pain reduction
• Reduced stress
• The breakup of scar tissue for faster healing
• Improved blood circulation
• Reduced inflammation
• Targeted therapy
• Lymphatic drainage
• Faster relief and recovery

A therapeutic massage goes perfectly in combination with your physical therapy exercises. CORE Physical Therapy’s August employee highlight is Nathan Amezcua. Nathan has been a part of our team for almost three years. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from Cal State Fullerton and has also been an athlete his entire life, with a special passion for playing rugby. He went on to study and receive his certification in massage therapy and works as a clinical aide and fitness specialist. As an athlete himself, Nathan has experienced his own injuries and has personally used therapeutic massage many times to help with pain relief and recovery.
“I found relief with massage therapy in my own life,” said Nathan. “That’s why it’s an important way for me to use massage treatments to help others avoid injury or feel better after experiencing an injury.”
A Personalized Approach to Physical Therapy
Nathan was drawn to how individualized CORE’s approach was for each patient.
“CORE understands that physical therapy is not a cookie-cutter approach,” he adds. “These are really great therapists who really care. At CORE, we provide that quality of care that makes people feel like we’re there to help them heal.”
