There are a wide variety of reasons that neck pain can become a daily challenge. Dealing with restricted movement such as not being able to turn your head fully or turning it too quickly and triggering an intense pain reaction can quickly become both physically and emotionally draining. Deep tissue massage or trigger point massage physiotherapy techniques are likely to provide the most effective pain relief along with some gentle stretching techniques as part of a rehabilitation program.
Tennis Elbow (epicondylitis)
The condition medically named Lateral Epicondylitis is a musculoskeletal condition and is typically the result of strenuous overuse of the tendons and muscles in the forearm, in proximity to the elbow joint. Pain is often experienced when lifting or bending your arm and when gripping smaller objects like a pen. Deep Tissue Massage and manipulation of the affected area can relieve pain and stiffness as well as improving the range and reach of movement in the arms and wrists.
Upper, Mid, & Low Back Pain
Our daily lives often see us working in positions that are not considered ergonomic and poor posture or a herniated disc can be the result of added pressure on the spine and spinal nerves. General overuse or muscle strain and injury are also common complaints when it comes to the back. Low impact strength and core building exercise regimes along with Active Assisted Muscle stretching and Hot Stone Techniques release the tightened muscles and increase blood flow so that the muscles and ligaments relax and aid with pain relief.
There are several forms of headaches which can affect daily life, such as tension and cluster headaches but there are also a range of secondary headaches. The secondary form of headaches can be induced by an injury or an underlying complaint. It’s not just the pain that sufferers experience but also the difficulty of not being able to think clearly which very often leads to frustration, tiredness and increased stress levels. Shiatsu and the Myofascial Release Technique can help to significantly improve flexibility in the neck and shoulders and any associated emotional conditions bought on by trauma.
Foot and ankle injuries are one of the most common musculoskeletal injuries and are prone to reoccur because we often try to walk before the injury has fully healed. Sprains can occur in both the low and high ankle which involve the ligaments and the bones. Bone fractures, muscles tears and muscle rupture or stressed tendons are also common injuries when an ankle is sprained. Extended periods of elevation are not compatible with everyday life, so we need to look at the most practical physiotherapy treatments to find pain relief. Active Assisted Stretching supports the distressed area in the foot or ankle to provide this, and Scar Tissue can also be worked on to heal the injury.
The long-term effects of sleep disorders can have serious consequences on general health and well-being of both the body and mind. Without a period of rest and relaxation, the body struggles with its natural maintenance, and this impacts the immune system. Overall physical fatigue can make it difficult to achieve everyday tasks. Combination therapies such as Reflexology and Shiatsu are able to reduce stress levels and work as part of any sleep management program to restore balance and peace.
Numbness – or tingling in arms or feet
The condition medically termed Paresthesia (numbness in the arms or feet) can be quite frightening as this type of distress is often associated with more serious conditions including heart attacks and strokes, but they can prove to be the simple result of diabetes or other more common conditions.
The tingling sensation is uncomfortable and painful, and release from these symptoms can be found in the Active Release Technique, Lymphatic Massage therapies and similarly Deep Tissue Massage depending on how the condition presents itself.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
This type of affliction is becoming much more commonplace with the increased use of technology and keyboards for extended periods of time. It’s also commonly found in athletes that play tennis and other repetitive movement-based sports such as golf. The condition occurs when one of the major nerves from the arm to the hand becomes compressed as it passes through the wrist. This type of constant pain can become wearing, but Deep Tissue Massage can help to reduce numbness and increase required movement in the hands and fingers.
The shoulder area covers a much larger area of the body than people realize until they have experienced the pain of a Frozen Shoulder. Frozen Shoulder is also known as adhesive capsulitis and can make turning in any direction or moving from side to side unbearable and stop you from functioning in a normal physical manner. There are two forms of this condition primary (idiopathic) and secondary. Primary causes are synovitis or inflammation of the joint and the swelling is caused by synovial fluid collection on and around the joint. Secondary frozen shoulder is associated with trauma, rotator cuff disease, and impingement. Relief can be found with deep tissue massage and active pressure applications to the rotator cuff and joint area making movement more bearable and easing the constant pain.
