Deep Muscle Massage Helpful for Cerebral Palsy Patients

Deep tissue massage, which is used to release chronic patterns of muscular tension, may offer an added edge for cerebral palsy patients when combined with more traditional treatment options.

This type of massage involves the application of pressure directly on a problem area, specifically targeting the deeper layers of muscle. Deep tissue massage can be performed using minimal pressure, so “deep” doesn't have to mean “hard.”

Athletes have long resorted to various deep tissue massage therapies to alleviate muscle damage. However, the technique has also been proven effective in helping correct the symptoms of serious muscle conditions including cerebral palsy.

One particular technique known as Canadian massage, developed by Therese Pfrimmer in the 1940's to reverse her own paralysis, uses deep tissue manipulation to stimulate circulation and cellular regeneration.

While deep muscle tissue massage has been shown to aid in the correction of damaged muscles and tissues, individuals considering such treatment for cerebral palsy should consult with their doctor before beginning therapy to determine if it is right for them.

If your child, or someone you know, suffers from cerebral palsy, contact a cerebral palsy lawyer who can help you determine if they are eligible to obtain compensation that will help cover the cost of cerebral palsy.
