Ready? Ok, here is my road map of tips and techniques to getting you out of pain fast:
Who hasn't reached up at the end of a long day and massaged their own shoulders? Massaging sore muscles is a natural way to relieve pain and we do it for ourselves naturally all the time.
After a car accident, neck pain treatment with massage therapy is one of the fastest ways to get rid of the pain. Its fast. It feels wonderful immediately. And it works short term and long term. You might think of massage first as a relaxation or spa event. The idea that massage has a treatment element to it, may be a new idea to you.
It may seem strange or even scary to imagine lying down on a table and having a therapist work on your muscles. If you have no experience with massage, please check out this page about what to expect from a massage, it will answer most of your questions and should help you feel a little more comfortable before scheduling your first appointment.
Massage therapy is a proven, centuries old treatment which is used by athletes, Olympians, and injured patients worldwide. No gimics, no gizmos, just hands on treatment for neck pain relief, and it works!
The technical: massage therapy reduces inflammation, which causes pain. Massage helps your muscles begin healing and helps them to move more freely, less stiffly. And massage reduces scar tissue which can cause restrictions and pain.
