This is why it is important to be able to recognize the symptoms, particularly in the early stages when rest and gradual exercise can fix the problem. Symptoms all repetitive strain injuries have in common and should be one of the first signs to raise concern are frequent sore and exhaustion of the affected limb, usually occurring during performing general work-related tasks with symptoms diminishing or disappearing at night. When these symptoms start occurring every day and they persist for longer periods of time and performing usual tasks becomes uncomfortable or challenging, the condition is in its intermediate stage. Advanced and severe cases of repetitive strain injuries are highly debilitating and associated with poor life quality, with many being unable to escaped the aching, fatigue and weakness in limbs or perform the smallest of duties. Massage therapy involves the systematic manipulation of soft tissue using different levels of touch intensity, depending on the problem. In spite of many people seeing this therapy as more of an optional pampering, massage therapy branches out into a variety of techniques with the potential to heal, not only relax. Therefore, a technique such as deep tissue massage can work to release tension and boost blood flow and lymph circulation. These outcomes translate into pain alleviation and play an important role in helping prevent disease or accelerate recovery. In the fight against autoimmune diseases: In the fight against autoimmune diseases Massage therapy has been used for centuries to improve joint flexibility and circulation, alleviate pain, and reduce stress and anxiety. All of these outcomes while they won’t offer complete remission can help loosen the burden and improve quality of life for millions. However, many people with rheumatoid arthritis still shy away from massages out of panic of experiencing even more pain and worsening the symptoms. The potential of therapeutic massage treatments for this type of condition has been more and more visible especially in the past 10 years. Studies have highlighted the ability to achieve qualitative muscle tension release around the affected joint, while simultaneously boosting the patient’s mental health wellbeing. A 2013 research has revealed the highly beneficial effects of massage therapy in cases where rheumatoid arthritis affects the upper limbs. People who suffer from this type of autoimmune disorder experience inflammation around tissues surrounding each joint, leading to swelling and damage of the cartilage. Due to the way various massage therapies work, improvements in blood circulation can be observed from as early as first sessions. This promotes and expedites healing, providing temporary pain relief. At the same time, by following a regular massage schedule, people increase their chances of regaining mobility and limiting flare-ups. Enhancing Your Athletic Performance Through Massages: Enhancing Your Athletic Performance Through Massages Pain and soreness are frequently reported symptoms following trainings or performances, and they might just be the toughest ones to handle without proper care.

Why we all need to be proactive about neck pain: Why we all need to be proactive about neck pain When talking about neck pain prevention, we can’t stress enough the importance of adopting healthy lifestyles and taking care of your body. We are aware life is busy and stressful, and it’s easy to overlook apparently minor aspects, such as how you sit at your desk or how much the pressure is causing muscle tension. But working to find effective ways to reduce stress will ensure a lifetime of benefits for your neck and overall health. Exercise and stretch your neck as often as possible and don’t forget to take a step back and breathe. Massage therapy can also help a great deal. Taking the time to focus on your care and well-being is important. In the U.S. alone last year, about 15.4 million adults and 385,000 children reported having used massage therapy to help them relieve symptoms of stress, pain and tension. A well-trained massage therapist will be able to efficiently break the pain tension cycle that occurs in the neck and interferes with nervous system activity in the spine. By assessing your body and learning more about the potential causes, the therapist can decide upon the best way to approach your pain and correct your posture. Generally, treatment begins with sessions focused on relieving tension and increasing shoulder and neck mobility. When both you and your therapist feel confident about moving to the next stage of the treatment, the goal is to strengthen the muscles and correct posture and work to prevent pain from recurring. The Rise Of Teenagers And Young Adults With Ankylosing Spondylitis: The Rise Of Teenagers And Young Adults With Ankylosing Spondylitis We know how uncomfortable and at the same time sensitive a spine pain is. That is why every single case is evaluated in detail and should the therapist consider the levels of pain and inflammation are too intense, the treatment is postponed until the flare up settles. For the patients who can tolerate the treatment, deep tissue massage techniques have been shown to have greatest results. The manipulation involves sliding, gentle strokes in long sweeping movements while deep pressure is often applied where the tension or pain is. In a recent 2017 study , researchers have published the results of a small study comparison between deep tissue massage and therapeutic massage for lower back pain, disease activity, and functional capacity of ankylosing spondylitis patients. 31 male patients diagnosed with the disease participated in the randomized study with both groups undergoing 30-minute deep tissue massage sessions or therapeutic massage daily for two weeks. The aim was to identify and alleviate musculoskeletal contributors to lower back pain. While both techniques used generated positive outcomes for patients, deep tissue massage showed to have helped decrease pain levels. These numbers are encouraging for healthcare professionals to consider massage therapy techniques as supplements in ankylosing spondylitis treatment. The End: The End For more details, please visit:
