An estimated 30-50% of adults report having neck pain during the year. Usually the pain is caused by something simple, like hunching your shoulders over a keyboard or work surface. Posture can be another factor. Neck pain can be caused by inflammation, whiplash, sleeping in the wrong position or just a wrong sudden movement. It can be very painful or just a dull, nagging ache. Whether it’s chronic or episodic, neck pain can definitely be relieved by massage.
Neck pain massage may exacerbate symptoms at first, but gentle massage of the arms, chest, legs and back ultimately reduces pain in the neck. Along with relieving neck pain, receiving massage at Garden Springs Therapeutic Massage Center on a regular basis will help keep all your joints limber. It can improve your posture and flexibility, increase range of motion, lower blood pressure and heart rate and relieve stress. Certain pressure points can sometimes relieve issues concerning pain and tension during the fall and winter. Garden Springs Therapeutic Massage Center uses hydrocallator steam packs, which almost always relieve the stress.
One of the general misconceptions for those who suffer from chronic or traumatic neck pain is the belief that the neck or vertebrates are out of alignment. It is also common for people to experience anxiety when it comes to neck pain, as the neck and spine area can seem vulnerable. Most neck pain appears to not have a serious cause and likely will eventually sort itself out, especially with the help of neck pain massage therapy.
Massage around the spine can be soothing as the muscles that surround the cervical spine may alleviate tension with the neck. Moreover, any amount of touch and relaxation massage for neck pain may be beneficial. Much neck pain is chronic, and those who suffer from it may experience constant anxiety in response to the pain. Neck pain massage is not just for pain management, but for reducing the need for it before a trauma or accident even happens. Massage sessions scheduled at regular intervals will have the biggest benefit on neck pain.
There are different types of massage used for neck pain. Swedish massage is the most common type of massage and involves the use of long, smooth strokes using oil or lotion. Deep tissue massage targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. This type of massage is used for chronically tight or painful muscles. With the benefits of hot stone massage therapy, neck pain relief can be quickly provided.
