Massage for Pain Relief
Pain can affect your life, your quality of life, and your work. In many people, pain medications can have unpleasant side effects. Considering the growing number of people reporting pain and its negative effects on quality of life, the American public has become interested in examining other methods of pain relief. Research indicates that massage can reduce pain and pain intensity in patients with somatic pain on an immediate, intermediate and long term time frame. Often massage can resolve the initiating source of your pain. In other cases, it effectively manages both the pain and functionality of conditions it cannot cure. In either case, it is a valuable therapy in the recovery from injuries and surgeries.
It is also an effective treatment for those with general myalgia. Regular massage can reduce pain levels and improve the quality of life for adult cancer patients. In many cases, it can often relieve symptoms of Carpel Tunnel Syndrome by reducing chronic muscle tension in affected arms and hands.
