Massage Can Help With Chronic Pain

Chronic pain affects 116 million Americans, one out of every three people.  Most people have low back and knee pain. The next most common problems are headaches and neck pain.  Prescription pain medication is usually given for relief, but there are other options.  Robert Twillman, a veteran pain psychologist, reminds patients that living with chronic pain can take an emotional toll but it’s an area in which you have the power to create change.
Pain management centers are now focusing on improving your body’s function rather than just eliminating pain.  Positive rewards are increased mobility, better mental outlook, and on occasion improved overall health.  Massage can be a useful tool towards putting your attention on your body’s abilities versus its limits.  It also helps retrain your nerve endings to signal more pleasant sensations rather than sending pain messages.

  1. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
