Welcome to Sterling Physical Therapy, I’m Dr. Sterling Carter. One of our fans asked us to talk about the difference between massage therapy and physical therapy so lets get to it!

Let’s start with Massage Therapy. Massage Therapy involves the manipulation of body tissue to facilitate stress and pain reduction. This one-tiered approach is able to assist with some, but not all of the medical needs of the patients we see here at Sterling Physical Therapy.

Massage Therapy is a useful tool in our toolbelt as Physical Therapist, but this treatment technique is used in addition to modern equipment, wellness plans, and new technology. One example of our enhanced treatments is our spinal decompression machine to assist clients with back pain. Massage therapy may have some positive effects, but the use of this machine allows us to greatly enhances results for our patients.

Every patient that comes into our center receives a custom treatment plan that is best suited for their individual needs. Our use of new technology, updated treatment techniques, and customized wellness plans allows us to take a more holistic approach to getting people back on track.

Physical Therapy vs Occupational Therapy

Welcome to Sterling Physical Therapy, I’m Dr. Sterling Carter. Today we are going to cover the difference between Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy.

Occupational Therapist treat and assess conditions that affect a patient’s ability to perform daily task. These task include self care to high-level activities that can even be job related. In addition to assessing and treating these conditions, Occupational Therapist or OT’s design treatment plans and help patients with functional activities to improve cognitive, visual skills and general coordination skills.

Overall the goal of occupational therapy is to help patients function with the highest level of independence possible. We diagnose and treat patients of all ages with injuries that limit a patient’s ability to move and perform various activities in daily life. As a Physical Therapist, one of my passions is developing a personalized plan using different treatment techniques to promote increased mobility, reduce pain, restore function, and even prevent disability. Our fitness and wellness programs help our patients develop healthier, and more active lifestyles.

Welcome to Sterling Physical Therapy, I’m Sterling Carter. Over the past few weeks we have covered a few workout routines so it makes sense to talk about a few different techniques for managing pain. Massages are an effective option for managing pain and relieving stress.

Your body feels pain through impulses or signals run toward your spinal cord then into the brain. During a massage, other impulses are traveling along the same nerves interfering with the pain messages to the brain!

The result is not only reducing the pain impulses felt by the body, but also the release of endorphins into the brain and nervous systems which may also subdue pain.

Here are a few beneficial areas for massages to relieve pain originating from muscle tension: Remember, massaging tense muscles increases blood circulation to the area and relaxes the muscle which helps to reduce pain.

Your head, back, neck, and shoulders areas that may tense up causing discomfort of pain. Be sure to follow our post next week for some tips on how to give a killer massage.
