Back pain is more than pain, it can also be interference into how you want to live your life. Depending on the intensity and location of your pain, you may notice a restriction to your range of motion, a limitation to the activities you are able to take part in, and much frustration.
There are many different types of back pain. As a noninvasive approach to healing, massage makes a great tool to combat discomfort. Several of the most common types of complaints we receive at Elements Massage Scottsdale Promenade about back pain include:
- Muscle Spasms
Muscle spasms happen as a result of a repetitive action, incorrect posture, an event such as whiplash, or even a simple muscle strain. Massage can address these issues by boosting circulation to deliver nutrients and oxygen to needed areas to facilitate quicker healing.
- Spinal Osteoarthritis
In this particular condition, the cartilage breaks down between spinal joints resulting in painful bone-on-bone rubbing. Massage can bring about relief by lessening the severity of the symptoms and allowing you to relax and release stored up tension.
Categorized by full-body pain in the joints, tendons, and connective tissues, massage can bring aid to the more than 5.8 million Americans that suffer from this condition. By working to induce a deep sense of relaxation and encourage the movement of limbs along with a pliability of the muscles, massage can mitigate fatigue and reduce pain.
Depending on what type of pain you are experiencing, we encourage you to talk openly with our talented team to address your needs. We can tailor a customized and therapeutic massage experience that fits your specific condition.
