Massage for Pain Management

Research shows that massage therapy is safe and effective at managing both acute andWoman getting therapeutic massage in Redmond, OR chronic pain. We urge our patients here in Redmond, OR to incorporate massage therapy, chiropractic care, and naturopathic medicine into their pain management plan. Our massage therapists work both independently and integratively with our Redmond, OR Chiropractic and Naturopathic Doctors to develop an individualized treatment plan to get people out of pain.

Massage therapy assists in pain management by increasing blood flow to sore, stiff joints and muscles. Increased blood flow brings needed oxygen and nutrients to the site of injury in addition to taking away inflammatory cytokines thereby decreasing pain and swelling. Massage therapy excels at reducing muscle tension and muscle spasms in addition to breaking up adhesions and scar tissue. Massage therapy is recommended after surgeries to facilitate proper healing for damaged tissue to minimize adhesions and scarring. In most cases you should avoid massage for 6 weeks after your surgery so please consult with your physician as they know your specific medical situation. Massage also triggers the production of natural painkillers in the brain in addition to oxytocin (aka “love hormone”) which is a hormone that improves mood in people who suffer from anxiety and depression.

If you suffer from pain or tension, call our clinic to schedule an appointment with our Redmond, OR massage therapists, chiropractor or naturopathic doctor! 541-516-1045.
