Dealing with muscle pain or spasms? Having trouble getting around day-to-day and wondering what you can do to ease the pain? Wondering if your muscle pain will ever go away?
If this describes you, you’ll be happy to know that massage therapy in Naples is a treatment option that can help get you back to feeling amazing. There’s no reason to continue dealing with muscle pain and spasms. With massage therapy, you can get back to doing the things you love without having to worry about physical limitations.
What Causes Muscle Pain and Spasms?
Muscle pain and spasms generally occur when a muscle isn’t receiving enough blood and oxygen. When this happens, the muscle begins to produce lactic acid. And, as this lactic acid builds up, it eventually causes the pain and soreness that you’re currently experiencing.
How Does Massage Therapy Work?
For our massage therapy in Naples, we utilize proven methods where we strategically apply pressure to the affected areas of the body in an effort to release the lactic acid from your muscles. Pressure is generally applied using fingers and knuckles, although elbows may be used as well.Where and how pressure is applied will depend on the specific areas that you’re experiencing discomfort. In some cases, patients choose to receive a therapeutic massage as a way to refresh their body even if they currently have minimal muscle pain or discomfort.
What Areas of the Body Can Massage Therapy Treat?
Massage therapy can treat just about any area of the body where muscle pain and spasms are occurring. While the most common treatment area is the back, we often work with patients who are experiencing pain in their shoulders, arms, thighs, legs, etc.
If you live a highly active lifestyle or work in a career that requires consistent physical activity, you’ve likely experienced instances where a large portion of your body feels sore. In these cases, massage therapy can help minimize or eliminate soreness throughout the body. It can also be used as a way to prevent muscle soreness from occurring in the first place.
Is the Process Painful?
Depending on the level of pressure applied and your current level of pain, there may be some discomfort during the massage therapy process. It’s important to understand, however, that applying this pressure is necessary to ultimately ease the pain caused by your muscle strain or spasms.
At Hiler Chiropractic & Neurology, we do everything in our power to make you as comfortable as possible throughout the process. We communicate with you throughout your treatment session to understand what levels of pressure you’re comfortable with in order to ensure that your massage therapy session is both relaxing and effective.
