Massage for Chronic Pain
Massage therapy is one of the many options that will help manage and alleviate chronic pain for a variety of conditions. Chronic pain can stop you from doing the things you want to or need to do, but massage therapy can help get you back to normal function. For chronic conditions, studies have suggested that more frequent massage therapy treatments, closer together might be the most effective. Often chronic pain is accompanied by symptoms of depression, anxiety, and difficulty sleeping, and massage therapy is a proven option to help manage these difficult conditions.
In 2015, 16% of American adults discussed massage therapy with their doctors and other health care providers, and about 69% of the time, their physicians and health care workers strongly recommended massage therapy and gave them a referral. Physicians were the most likely health care providers to recommend massage, but chiropractors, physical therapists, and mental health professionals also encouraged their patients to see a massage therapist.
