Massage Treatment For Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is not only an unpleasant thing to live with, but it can result in a variety of additional problems, including lack of sleep, anxiety, and depression. Conditions like fibromyalgia and chronic myofascial pain syndrome can be the cause of chronic pain, and massage can help to reduce and manage chronic pain for those who suffer from it. Seeing a massage therapist who is in contact with your doctor, to create an effective treatment plan depending on your condition, can be a way to manage chronic pain. Let's look at three reasons why you should consider visiting a massage therapist if you have chronic pain:

1. Relieve Joint Pressure and Stimulate Blood Flow

Sufferers of fibromyalgia and chronic myofascial pain syndrome both have different needs when it comes to their massage therapy and how specifically their pain needs to be relieved. Chronic myofascial pain syndrome often requires deep pressure to be applied around the joint areas, while fibromyalgia often requires a lighter stimulation on the skin's surface, stimulating blood flow. 

2. Your Treatment Can Be Adjusted

As your treatment continues, your massage therapist can adjust the kind of pressure and where it's applied as needed, allowing you to better reap the benefits of massage treatment. Chronic pain frequently requires these kinds of adjustments, so each person can get maximum relief from their massages.

3. Massages Can Be Relaxing

Outside of the pain relief benefits of massages, massage can be an all-around relaxing experience, as massage therapists will frequently utilize music, pleasant lighting, and oil to make the massage a calming experience. Massage therapists want their patients to always leave feeling better than when they walked in through the door. Keep in mind that these are also things that can be adjusted to your preferences.
