Everyone feels pain in their lifetime; it’s only natural, therefore, to find ways to best deal with that pain. When pain becomes persistent and life-interfering, though, that’s when “chronic pain” is diagnosed.
How Is Chronic Pain Best Managed?
Of course, you need to determine if the pain is medically-related. After your physician has determined that your pain is non-malignant and of undetermined origin, you should consider massage therapy as a safe, effective pain management tool—possibly in combination with other pain management strategies.
Even if the pain emanates from a specific medical condition, massage therapy may still be a good idea. Some problems/conditions for which massage therapy is a good “fit” include:
- Low back pain
- Sports injuries/strain
- Carpal tunnel
What Can Massage Therapy Do for Me?
Although there are many good reasons to take advantage of natural, non-invasive massage therapy, the following 3 reasons stand out:
- Massage therapy greatly improves circulation, which could prevent and improve chances of overcoming many diseases.
- Massage therapy could also help save you money, because it’s less expensive than prescription drugs, physical therapy, and surgery, by preventing diseases and conditions, and by reducing recovery time.
- Massage therapy can help alleviate the symptoms of medical complications that accompany chronic pain, such as depression, stress, inability to fully enjoy life.
If you suffer from medically-evaluated chronic pain, massage therapy may be just what the doctor “ordered.”
