Medical Massage Center Offers Open House, Ache Relief
PLANO, Texas, Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Dallas has a new ally -- part medical super sleuth, part alignment specialist -- in the battle against persistent aches and pains.
Medical Massage of Plano will host an Open House Feb. 28-Mar. 1 at Polo Towne Crossing in Willow Bend. Visitors will receive a free medical massage and have a chance to speak with licensed therapists about their chronic pain.
"This time of year, aches and pains are everywhere," says Kathy Platt, a former research scientist at Texas A&M University and Holistic Healthcare Provider. "The holidays, work, taxes ... it adds up. But those tensions may be masking a deeper problem with your body structure."
It's there, in the body's structure, that the hands-on work of medical massage offers something you won't get from a traditional "comfort massage."
Medical massage focuses on eliminating chronic pain at its source and relaxing the client. It's a powerful alternative to injections or surgery for pain relief.
"The real source of chronic pain sometimes plays hide-and-seek inside your body, but it leaves clues," says David Ryder, an orthopedic therapist with Medical Massage of Plano. "Medical massage allows us to follow those clues to reveal the source of your pain, and eliminate it."
One of MMP's clients had excruciating pain in her shoulders since undergoing a double-mastectomy. Hydrocortisone treatments had eased her pain, but the medication hampered her family life.
After one session at Medical Massage of Plano, her pain was reduced by at least half, and was completely gone in 4 sessions, Platt says.
"We see it all the time," she explains. "A client has tried medicine, tried stretching, even considered surgery. What we offer is a medically proven alternative that could help you avoid a costly, painful and possibly ineffective surgery."
Chronic pain is said to be the most costly health problem in America. Estimated annual costs -- including medical expenses, lost income, lost productivity, compensation payments and legal charges -- are about $90 million, according to Oklahoma State University's Medical Center.
Medical Massage of Plano, which opens March 3, has 10 highly trained
therapists on staff, with specialties in advanced sports medicine,
orthopaedics, chronic pain, and structural alignment. The center is located
at 2100 Dallas Parkway in Polo Towne Crossing in Willow Bend.
