Massage Therapy for Arthritis
There are more than 46 million reported cases of arthritis each year in the United States.
Arthritis is an umbrella term used to describe joint pain or joint disease. There are more than 100 distinct types of arthritis but what they all have in common is that they all involve a person’s joints. Since there are so many different forms of arthritis, there are also numerous patterns that arthritis suffers can experience. Joint symptoms may include pain, stiffness, swelling and decreased range of motion of one or several joints. Symptoms may vary in intensity, come and go or be persistent and progressive. Most of the time, if arthritis isn’t managed well, the arthritic process can cause other health damaging effects.
The good news is that our massage therapists, Chiropractor and Naturopath have remarkable success at helping arthritis suffers to eliminate their pain and regain their health through massage, chiropractic therapies and natural medicine such as diet and nutritional supplements. Massage therapy lowers production of substance P, a neurotransmitter that is linked to a person’s pain response. Massage therapy also helps to increase circulation which brings needed oxygen and nutrients to the affected area while at the same time, inflammatory waste proteins are swept away, helping to relieve arthritis symptoms.
