Neck pain…most of us have experienced or had an episode with
this unfortunate side effect of life. Not to sound negative, but the
numbers seem to agree, with estimates of 1 in 10 to 1 in 5 individuals
who will experience neck pain in a year’s time. Fortunately, it isn’t a
lifelong sentence, and many people recover over time, but also some
can see neck pain develop into more of a chronic issue.
Is there anything a neck pain sufferer can do? Luckily, YES! There
is! Massage Therapy and soft-tissue management is your answer for
creating an effective plan to ease and even erase the issues that lead
to neck pain. In fact, (more numbers…yah!) many health studies
indicate neck pain as the #2 most common reason for people to look
to massage therapy, with back pain coming in as the #1 reason.
Often we work with clients who have suffered from neck pain in the
past but have seen significant improvement after just one session,
such as: ~decrease in pain levels ~increase in range of motion
~headache relief ~better sleep. In some cases, a second or third
session is in order to truly ease your neck pain…and keep it from
reoccurring. Specific neck stretches are also a proven way to help the
benefits of massage therapy last longer, but we will be covering these
methods in another blog.
In the meantime, if you’ve suffered from Neck Pain, know that relief
is available! We’ve lost count of how many clients we’ve hear say
“what neck pain?” after their session(s), and we hope to assist you, a
friend or loved one in achieving the best results to help you feel
better! Why keep putting it off, schedule your session today!
