Massage and Arthritis

The other day I was asked if I thought a massage would help Arthritis ..and my answer was yes a regular massage would help ….

“According to the Arthritis Foundation, massage can help with arthritis in two ways. First, it reduces muscle pain that is usually caused by spasms. Second, it increases your body’s ability to produce endorphins which reduces pain

Massage helps the arthritis sufferer by loosening up the joints. Namely, in the muscles and ligaments that break up the adhesions that slow or hinder motion. And, when gentle joint stretching is done it can actually stimulate the production of synovial fluid which acts as a cushion. This reduces inflammation and pain.

 

 

Just like all therapies, this requires some attention to repeating to make it most effective. Sure, the first time you go in you will get some relief. But, to get the most out of it you really need to do massage therapy on a regular basis
