Why is massage therapy rarely prescribed for treatment of muscle tension.?

Why is massage therapy rarely prescribed for treatment of muscle tension.?

Just a guess...: It may be because it is not covered by insurance and can be expensive, making it less likely to be prescribed.

Osteopathic drs are trained in manipulation treatments, some include muscle stretching/massage-like treatments. ...Read more
