The Effectiveness of Massage Therapy for Shoulder Pain
If you are like many people, you probably take your shoulders for granted. But if you start to experience pain in your shoulders, you will quickly realize just how important they are. If left untreated, shoulder pain can lead to chronic problems and interfere with your everyday activities. Fortunately, massage therapy can help.
At Winter Haven Wellness Center, Team Wellness provides high-quality massage therapy to eliminate shoulder pain and help you achieve a better quality of life. We can also use other techniques such as spinal decompression therapy for more effective and quicker treatment. If you are experiencing shoulder pain and live in or around Winter Haven or Polk County, contact Dr. Lindblad to schedule a consultation.
What is Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy is a form of physical therapy that uses manual manipulation of the body's soft tissues to improve health and well-being. Massage therapists use their hands, fingers, elbows, and forearms to apply pressure and movement to the muscles, ligaments, tendons, and fascia. Team Wellness also may use hot stones and warm bamboo. Massage therapy can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions, including shoulder pain.
The Effectiveness of Massage Therapy
Massage therapy is an effective treatment for shoulder pain. It can help to reduce inflammation, improve range of motion, and relieve pain. Massage therapy can be used as a stand alone treatment or in combination with other treatments such as chiropractic care or spinal decompression therapy.
After just one massage therapy session, you may notice that your shoulder feels less stiff and more flexible. After a few weeks of consistent treatments, you may experience less pain and stiffness as well as an improvement in your range of motion. If you are concerned about the health of your muscles and tendons, we can also perform other techniques to improve blood circulation and support the healing process.
Massage Therapists Relieve Shoulder Pain
Our chiropractic massage therapist will first ask you about your symptoms and medical history. We will then perform a physical examination of your shoulder to assess its range of motion and identify any areas that are causing pain. Based on the results of your physical exam, we will create a treatment plan that is tailored to your specific needs. Our massage therapists will use a variety of techniques to manipulate the soft tissues around the shoulder joint.
