Massage For Shoulder & Lower Extremity Pain
Shoulders are one of the most used muscles, and are involved in everything from pulling and pushing to lifting and throwing. Any activity that involves arms or hands requires movement of shoulders. You need to move your shoulders even while doing something as simple as wearing a shirt or taking it off.
Shoulders can get easily injured due to collision while playing any sport, or by falling on your shoulder or because of an accident. They can also get hurt if your arm is hyperextended. Other injuries include a dislocated shoulder or rotator cuff injury.
If you think that you do not play any sport so your shoulders will be safe, you are mistaken. Shoulder pain can also be caused by weak muscles, bad posture and sudden intense activity. Working 5 days and overexerting yourself over weekend can do you more harm than good. Something as simple as lying on one side for too long or sitting in one position for too long can also cause soreness or stiffness in neck and shoulders region.
Massage Therapy For Shoulders
If you are experiencing stiffness or lack of range of motion in shoulders, massage therapy can help you. Massage helps the muscles in getting oxygen-rich nutrients with the help of increased supply of fresh blood. Swedish massage and deep tissue massage work great for providing relief from shoulder pain. You get relief when you rub your own neck when you are in pain, imagine a professional massage therapist working on your neck and shoulders and getting you rid of those adhesions with just the right amount of pressure.
Frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis is a condition that might take a year or two to heal on its own but the Swedish massage and Trigger Point Therapy can help in reduction of pain, and regular massage therapy can help in going through daily routine with minimal or no pain.
Lower Extremity Pain Massage Therapy
Massage therapy is also great for any lower extremity pain or discomfort. Legs get tired of walking around, driving, or even by sitting for long hours at work. Massage therapy works best for relaxing tired and sore legs besides stretching the muscles. It helps in assisting lymphatic drainage besides reducing swelling in legs or ankles. Massage therapy is also one of the best ways to get rid of muscle cramps and spasms. It helps in lengthening the muscles and strengthening the muscle fibers. It also helps in protecting the joints.
