Managing Chronic Pain with Remedial Massage
People who are living with chronic pain are all too familiar with its debilitating effects. If you have been dealing with chronic pain for any length of time, you have most likely tried many different treatments, and you may even be aware of massage as a potential treatment option. If you haven’t yet tried this holistic approach to pain relief, it’s time to learn about the considerable benefits of remedial massage therapy. Mi.ko Massage therapy specialises in relieving chronic pain.
Understanding chronic pain
Chronic pain can last for months or years and finding relief can be extremely difficult. This pain may occur because of an injury or illness and may be accompanied by other symptoms as well. There are some key differences between acute and chronic pain. With acute pain, your nervous system alerts you that you need to pay attention to something that is stressing your body and addressing the cause of the pain puts an end to it. Chronic pain, however, persists. Whether the trigger was an injury or infection or even if there was no discernible cause, chronic pain lasts and can cause complications such as anxiety and sleep problems. Chronic pain is also sometimes caused by a specific health condition such as fibromyalgia, endometriosis, inflammatory bowel disease, or chronic fatigue syndrome.
Seeking out remedial massage in Abbotsford, Melbourne, or Collingwood to address chronic pain
Massage therapy is a unique way to relieve stress and tension, ease joint and muscle pain, and generally improve your overall health and well being. When seeking massage treatment services, it’s important to discuss your condition with your therapist to ensure the treatment you receive helps rather than exacerbates your symptoms. Good remedial massage therapists know how to tailor their treatment to your health condition. Hence, during treatment, be sure to speak up about anything that increases your pain or feels “wrong.” Also, before beginning remedial massage therapy, speak with your healthcare provider to be sure that they know about and approve of you receiving remedial massage (as well as any other holistic therapies you use).
