How massage can help
Massage carries numerous benefits, including for people with chronic conditions. Done correctly, massage can provide a wonderful respite from the stress of living with arthritis or another stressful condition. It can aid in relaxation, which in itself promotes healing and reduces stress. It can also reduce pain, improve joint movement, relax tense muscles, and stimulate blood flow. However, massage for people with arthritis should be approached as a complementary therapy that is used in conjunction with other regular medical treatment such as physical therapy.
In some cases those with Arthritis have bene able to reduce the amount of pain medicine.
