If you are one of those people affected by Chronic Pain, then you will know that there is nothing worse than being in pain all the time.
There are three different classes to pain management:
- Mild Pain
- Mild to Moderate Pain
- Moderate to Severe Pain
When looking into the problem area, our therapists use techniques to gauge where the pain is coming from. More often than not, the problem may not be directly related to where you feel pain, as that pain is the result of a domino effect of problem areas.
When there is a problem area, the muscles around it work to support it as it is the bodies’ way of balancing out however this, in turn, puts greater pressure on other areas of the body. To get the right balance, we must trace back the original problem to ensure complete balance within the body.
In doing this, we gradually release the unnecessary pressure placed on unusual parts of the body thus lessening the pain and discomfort.
Pain can be relieved with mild paracetamol or anti- inflammatory. This pain may be reoccurring.
Mild to Moderate Pain
You may have to use both an anti- inflammatory and a paracetamol to release pain. This pain may be more frequent and less bearable.
Moderate to Severe Pain
The pain is unbearable. You may have trouble with regular activities such as walking/ sitting for an extended period of time etc.
In all cases listed, there are problem areas which need to be addressed. These areas can be relieved with massage therapy. Our highly trained professional therapists know the best techniques in which to begin to break down the problem and give you ideas of how to manage the pain at its best and worst state.
When you come in for your consult, please communicate with your therapist and ensure you give them as much information on where the pain is so they can help you the best they can whether it be with deep tissue, pregnancy massage, myofascial, relaxation massage, injury massage; we will have something for you.
You don’t have to live with pain. We can assist you to release the pressure and the extent of the pain and help you on your way to leading a happy and healthy life.
With the assistance of a massage therapist and strengthening exercises, you could be in less pain within weeks. You must begin retraining the body out of bad habits because inevitably, “if nothing changes, nothing changes”.
If you have a persisting problem or accute pain that has not settled, before making your next booking, please consult your doctor to ensure there are no potential pathologies or other problems that would contraindicate massage.
(With pain management it is always good to keep your doctor in the loop as they hae the clearest picture within the medical wheel)
