What Injuries can Massage Treat?
Headaches & Migraines
A headache or migraine can be caused by many things. A quick head massage may relieve the stress temporarily, but recurring head pain could be a sign of neck, arm or back problems. A massage consultation can help find a deeper cause and ultimately relief from these debilitating problems.
Frozen shoulder can also be known as Bursitis and pain is the most common symptom. Frozen shoulder can develop when you stop using the joint normally because of pain, injury, or a chronic health condition, such as diabetes or a stroke. Any shoulder problem can lead to frozen shoulder if you do not work to keep full range of motion.
Sore Shoulder and Neck
Did you sleep funny last night? Or is it something more? Be assured a trained massage therapist can safely work on your neck and advise whether you need a new pillow or a doctor!
Back Pain & Sciatica
One of the most common phrases we hear in the clinic is, “My back hurts”. There are countless reasons for a “sore back”, but a trained massage therapist will consult with you and your own doctor if necessary. The back contains the backbone of our body, literally, and needs specialised attention. Back pain can radiate to our neck, legs, and arms, so consider a massage consultation from our trained therapist next time you have pain.
Tennis and Golfers Elbow
You don’t have to play sport to suffer elbow pain. Tennis elbow is an inflammation of the tendons that join the forearm muscles. The forearm muscles and tendons become damaged from overuse — repeating the same motions again and again. This leads to pain and tenderness on the outside of the elbow.
Your qualified massage therapist can help relieve the pain.
Sprains, Strains and Tears
A common sports injury, nearly everyone at some time has suffered a sprain, strain or a muscle tear. Even a small strain can be painful, but you don’t need to suffer through the healing process. Massage with a qualified therapist can help get you back into action a lot more quickly.
A problem mostly associated with runners, but can also be caused by hard floors, ill fitting footwear, poor core stability, tight hamstrings/calf muscles and weak quadriceps or foot arch muscles. Massage can help alleviate these problems and therefore get you back on your feet again.
Whether your treatment consists of a single session or a course of therapy, there is no need for your body to suffer pain.
