Massage Therapy for Pain Management
The evidence continues to build for the use of therapeutic massage as a tool in reducing pain and inflammation in the body. One of the oldest medical therapies, the usefulness of massage is that it can provide immediate and lasting pain relief without relying on opioids or anti-inflammatory drugs.
Massage therapy has been proven to be an effective treatment in relieving pain for a variety of conditions, including:
- Head, back and neck pain
- Lower back pain
- Post-operative pain
- Joint pain, included hip, knee and shoulder pain
- Tension and cluster headaches
- Muscle sprains and strains
- Arthritic pain
Massage works by increasing the circulation and blood flow to targeted muscles and joints, helping to trigger the body’s natural healing and anti-inflammatory response, and reducing built up tension in the muscles. Massage can also help by providing myofascial release, a massage technique that utilizes gentle, sustained pressure into the connective tissues to eliminate pain and restore motion. This can help improve range of motion and flexibility in almost any joint, and is an effect pain relief treatment for most types of joint or musculoskeletal pain.
