How Massage Therapy Can Help with Pain Management

Those who live with chronic pain know it is no joke. Even the most simple, everyday tasks can be a problem if you are constantly living in pain. Fortunately, there is no need to suffer from nagging chronic pain though, as great strides have been made in pain management that can really change your life by getting you the relief you deserve.

Research indicates that massage therapy can be very effective in pain relief and management, so savvy medical professionals have begun to educate their chronic pain patients of the benefits of incorporating massage therapy into their existing pain management programs for relief. Study participants reported feeling pain relief after receiving a 60-minute therapeutic massage two to three times per week.

Specifically, research shows the effect massage has on pain in the back, hands, neck, and knees. There are a variety of massage techniques used to ease body tension and promote healing from conditions such as muscle pain, accidents, and sports injuries.

Results indicated that there was a noticeable reduction in hand pain as well as an improvement in grip strength for those who had used a combination of four weekly hand massage sessions and self-massage. In addition, the massage patients also reported better sleep and showed fewer signs of anxiety and depression than those who were part of the control group that did not receive massage therapy.
