For some years, we’ve stocked the Dr Graeme General Purpose Massager and our clients love it. Most patients with back and neck stiffness find it penetrates to the deep tight areas of pain and allows an easier adjustment to take place.
These light and powerful hand held massagers are great presents and they are popular around Christmas time. The models have been improved several times and carry a 12 month guarantee.
The Dr Graeme Massager is available at Armadale Chiropractic Centre and Manningham Road Chiropractic Centre for $85.
Why do we get patients to supplement our care with massage at home? It’s because most people with chronic (long standing) problems need more massage than they get from their professional. This is not due to some oversight by professionals. It’s because there is usually too much to do given normal economic and time constraints.
At our clinic we deal with a lot of patients with chronic (long standing) musculoskeletal problems, such as backs, necks, shoulders etc. etc. In addition to the type of care I provide, these conditions often need large amounts of massage type treatment.
Why? The patient’s muscular and soft tissue issues are usually quite extensive and to deal with them effectively (rather than just provide temporary relief) usually requires regular massage over a long period of time. If each massage is extensive and it needs to be repeated a large number of times this can quickly add up to a lot of time and a lot of money.
What this means is unless you are someone with lots of spare time, cash and motivation you won’t get all you need. It’s a major reason why most patients never recover as they should, and one of the reasons most musculoskeletal problems tend to re-occur.
