PhysioDoc clinicians use a hand-on approach to facilitate recovery and utilise a range of different massage techniques. Whether it is a deep tissue massage or a sports massage, the therapist can discuss the different techniques with you to ensure the most appropriate technique is used to treat your injury.

Massage is often used in combination with other treatment modalities to treat an injured or painful area, or just for the purposes of relaxation. Typically, it is used to treat increased muscle tone/tension, myofascial trigger points which are causing referred pain, increased thickening of connective tissue or muscle tears.
