MASSAGE FOR PAIN MANAGEMENT FAQS

What types of pain can massage therapy help manage?

Massage therapy can help manage various types of pain, including back pain, neck pain, headaches, muscle tension, and joint pain.

How does massage therapy break the pain cycle?

Massage therapy helps break the pain cycle by reducing muscle tension, improving blood circulation, releasing endorphins (the body’s natural painkillers), and promoting relaxation.

How does massage therapy reduce perception of pain?

According to the gate control theory of pain, massage therapy can help override pain signals by stimulating other sensory pathways. The pressure and touch sensations from massage can block pain signals from reaching the brain, effectively “closing the gate” to pain perception.

What massage techniques are used for pain management?

Techniques such as deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, and Swedish massage may be used to address specific areas of pain and tension. At DC Therapies, the technique performed will be determined by your specific concern.

How many massage sessions are recommended for pain relief?

The number of sessions needed depends on the severity and cause of the pain. Your therapist will assess your condition and recommend a personalised treatment plan.

Is massage therapy safe for managing chronic pain conditions?

Yes, massage therapy is generally considered safe and effective for managing chronic pain conditions when performed by an experienced, qualified therapist.

Is massage painful?

Sometimes pain management massage can feel a little tender during and after treatment due to a release of lactic acid in the muscles. The level of discomfort varies from person to person depending on the problem area, the level of pre-existing pain, and the amount of pressure used.
