Massage Treatment For Chronic Pain

Chronic pain impacts every facet of your life, from your professional career to your personal relationships. Though medication can help you deal with the challenges of chronic pain, it often leaves you feeling groggy, unable to think clearly, and simply not like yourself. Massage therapy is a very helpful alternative for many people. This comprehensive approach can help relieve your pain without the side effects most prescription pain relievers come with.

Natural Serotonin Release

Serotonin is a chemical in your body that naturally relieves pain. Massage therapy helps to trigger production of serotonin, boosting your levels of this all-important natural pain management chemical.

Better Range of Motion

Stiffness and an inability to move easily are typical complications for chronic pain sufferers. The resulting restricted movement contributes to your discomfort, inhibits your ability to perform daily tasks, and decreases enjoyment of life overall. Massage therapists are skilled in working on range of movement for chronic pain sufferers. Through this therapy, you can learn to move more easily and fluidly, easing much of the stiffness you experience, which greatly helps to relieve pain.

Improved Sleep Patterns

Chronic pain sufferers typically experience many sleepless nights. When you can sleep, it’s typically restless and marked with several periods of wakefulness. Lack of sleep greatly contributes to your discomfort. Fatigue and irritability are common side effects of poor sleep patterns. When you are always tired, it’s that’s much more difficult to manage pain. Massage therapy is a relaxing technique that helps you fall asleep and stay asleep. This allows you to deal with your daytime activities more effectively and to manage pain.

Enhanced Moods and Lessened Anxiety

Massage therapy has an impact on emotional wellness too. Your improved sleep patterns will help greatly with mood. And several studies have shown that people who undergo massage therapy experience reduced anger, depression, and anxiety.

The combination of boosted serotonin levels, improved sleep, and better range of motion helps chronic pain sufferers with a marked decrease in pain, better ability to walk and function physically and emotionally and much improved overall mood. Massage therapy is a natural method of delivering all these benefits to chronic pain sufferers.
