The Most Common Back Issues
Elements Massage Scottsdale Promenade Dec 22, 2016
Back pain can interfere with your ability to execute a range of tasks. Depending on location and severity of the pain, chronic back pain can restrict your range of motion, limit doable activities, and cause much frustration. Did you know that massage may be able to provide you with the relief you so desperately need?
Massage offers a diverse range of non-pharmacological and non-invasive benefits to help restore your health and wellbeing while addressing persistent and annoying aches and pains. Depending upon your specific conditions, there are many different massage modalities to help target your individual needs. Several of the most common back complaints we see at Elements Scottsdale Promenade include:
- Muscle Spasms
A common occurrence after lifting heavy items with the incorrect posture, as a result of whiplash, or simply just a muscle strain, this is the most common type of complaint we face. With this particular issue, massage can help diminish pain by addressing any torn or knotted muscles restricting blood flow, causing swelling, or helping to realign and reset your system while delivering a healthy dose of oxygen to the area to promote healing.
- Spinal Osteoarthritis
This painful condition is the result of when cartilage breaks down in between spinal joints and leaves bone-on bone rubbing to happen. One way massage can help bring about relief for those with this incredibly painful condition is to boost circulation to the area to lessen the severity of symptoms.
- More than 5.8 million Americans are estimated to suffer from fibromyalgia. This condition is characterized by full-body pain stemming from tender joints, tendons, muscles and other connective tissues. Massage can help induce a deep sense of relaxation, distribute pain, address stiffness and diminish fatigue for individuals with this type of pain.
