Remedial Therapy: Q&A with Aiden

Massage Therapy Blog

Discover the ins and outs of Remedial Therapy as we dive into a conversation with our experienced Remedial Massage Therapist, Aiden.

What is a Remedial Therapist? A Remedial Therapist employs hands-on therapy, stretching and specialised techniques to identify and address conditions impacting the muscles, tendons and ligaments, especially related to pain, injury or musculoskeletal dysfunction. Our treatments are beneficial for individuals experiencing pain or injury in specific areas of the body.

When should I see a Remedial Therapist? Physiotherapists or Exercise Physiologists commonly refer clients with specific conditions, pain, or injuries to Remedial Therapists. These allied health services work together to offer comprehensive treatment.

If you have a sore muscle or a simple issue, visiting a Remedial Therapist can be beneficial. For more complex cases, consulting a Physiotherapist to diagnose the issue and create a tailored plan may be a better approach. The Physiotherapist's plan may involve referrals to an Exercise Physiologist or Remedial Therapist based on your health needs and goals.

What does it take to become a Remedial Therapist? Remedial Therapists complete a minimum of two years of study, including 600 practical hours in diverse settings (i.e. hospital, community, rehab facilities).

Continuing education in techniques like dry needling and cupping ensures they meet varied client needs. Post-study, registration through a massage association is required for private health rebates and ongoing professional development.
