Massage Therapy for Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain can be caused by many different reasons. A major cause in this day and age is due to our posture while sitting at a computer for long periods of time.
Does severe shoulder pain interrupt your sleep at night? Are you unable to lie on the affected side? Do you experience muscle spasms throughout the day? Massage therapy can help with these shoulder pain symptoms. Regular massage treatment sessions will help relieve muscle cramping, reduce shoulder/neck pain and tightness, help reduce frequency of headaches, and decrease shoulder pain.
Massage therapy is an excellent way to relieve pain or discomfort in your neck and shoulders, especially that “stabbing” pain people sometimes experience between their shoulder blades. Being mindful of posture and getting regular massage therapy such as Deep Tissue and Swedish massage combined with Cupping Therapy can significantly reduce the frequency of shoulder pain.
By incorporating massage into a regular healthcare regimen, many find a better quality of life and additional relief from a multitude of health issues. Shoulder pain can negatively affect a person’s quality of life. It can be occasional, acute or chronic, depending on whether the person has had an accident, is suffering from musculoskeletal dysfunction, or lack of movement or mobility. One pain management strategy to consider is massage therapy, which recent research suggests may be a helpful aid for managing shoulder pain symptoms.
Massage therapists do not diagnose medical conditions nor is this information intended to replace medical counsel. It is always advised to consult your physician first when you are seeking pain relief as there are many conditions with similar symptoms and some of them are life threatening and require medical attention.
