FROZEN

SHOULDER

Frozen shoulder is undoubtedly a debilitating and painful condition, and it is all too common. Massage therapists the world over will be well aware of this condition and the struggles that its sufferers present to them in the hope of some relief. The challenge is in knowing exactly how to manage this condition within the confines of the massage education.

The pain and stiffness in the shoulder can be so severe that you are unable to lift your arm over your head. It causes stiffness and a restricted range of movements in the affected shoulder. There is a medical term for it – ‘adhesive capsulitis’ and most sufferers will be familiar with the term because the pain can be so testing that they visit a Doctor at some point.

The worst thing about frozen shoulder is that it is persistent. Unfortunately the medical industry are more likely to inject the affected muscle with steroids than recommend a course of massage treatments, however, most frozen shoulder sufferers are likely to want to go down the massage route at some point anyway.

The condition of adhesive capsulitis usually entails a gradual onset of stiffness and increasing pain in only one shoulder; the joint capsule tightens and inflamed.

Benefits of Massage for Frozen Shoulder

Massage therapy is very beneficial in treating frozen shoulder as it increases the blood circulation to the injured region and also reduces the formation of scar tissue. Regular massage should be done to reduce the muscle stiffness. The pain and stiffness usually gets relieved after several massage treatments.

NECK

DAMAGE

Neck pain is a common complaint. Neck muscles can be strained from poor posture — whether it's leaning over your computer or hunching over your workbench. Osteoarthritis also is a common cause of neck pain.

Rarely, neck pain can be a symptom of a more serious problem. Seek medical care if your neck pain is accompanied by numbness or loss of strength in your arms or hands or if you have shooting pain into your shoulder or down your arm.

FULL

BODY/ WELL BEING MASSAGE

If there is a problem area that needs extra attention, such as a sore back or tight shoulders, request that I spend more time focused on those trouble spots but the trade-off may be less time spent on other areas of the body. To ensure the full treatment of every body part, as well as a focus on specific issues, make an appointment for a longer session time.
