We take pride in having our very own certified orthopedic massage therapist on staff to help you.
Sergey Raiter has helped hundreds of people eliminate their chronic pain and regain their mobility through his advanced manual manipulation massage therapy treatment. A student of world-renowned Massage Hall of Fame Inductee James Waslaski, Sergey has also studied Orthopedic massage therapy and Advanced Cyriax Frictions under the tutelage of well-known Calgary therapist Dr. Lanre Salami. Sergey’s greatest joy in life comes from helping his patients return to their normal pain-free lives, and it was his own battle with chronic pain that led to him becoming a therapist.
THE 3 PILLARS OF ORTHOPEDIC MASSAGE
Assessment - Treatment - Preventative Maintenance
IDENTIFY THE ISSUE
We start with a comprehensive assessment that ensures your treatment is tailored to you, your specific condition and your goals in order to identify the issue…
“Sergey was able to quickly assess my shoulder and neck and fixed my tightness and pain.”
Your assessment begins with a standard questionnaire and targeted conversation about the pain you’re suffering from. We then perform range of motion, passive range of motion, and resistance testing. Once complete we’ll be able to single in on the cause of your pain or discomfort, allowing us to move forward with treatment.
Once we’ve isolated the issue that’s causing you pain we begin treating it with Advanced Cyriax Frictions which target tendons, ligaments, connective tissue, joints and nerves to provide immediate pain relief…
“I am blown away by Sergey’s treatment.”
Our treatments are hyper-focused and highly specialized to the exact physical problem you’re facing. Using our extensive knowledge of the musculoskeletal system, we start off by opening up the surface muscles of the affected area in order to access the deep tissue where tendons and ligaments are located. We then generally apply a back and forth motion to the lesion causing pain or discomfort, which provides immediate pain relief and mobility. Once treatment is finished we put you in the best position to remain pain free with preventive maintenance.
PREVENTING FURTHER PAIN
“Really great experience. The assessment and recommended stretches were definitely bonuses!”
Before leaving we tailor and develop a preventive maintenance plan which well help you avoid pain or discomfort between sessions. Primarily made up of stretches that will keep the affected area mobile in order to promote further healing, these plans play a big role in your recovery and are simple enough to do at home or work.
