How will a neck massage help you with acute pain?

 

Acute neck pain can be reduced through neck massage. Acute pain can be a result of muscle overuse, injury, accident, surgery or muscle tension. A neck massage reduces pain by relieving tension and disturbing the signal sent to the brain.

Muscle tension can cause an increase in acute pain. Tension can be caused by poor posture, injury or muscle overuse. A build-up of tension can increase trigger points or muscular knots. Trigger points lead to an increase in pain in a specific area unless it compresses a nerve. If a nerve is compressed by a trigger point, referred pain usually occurs. It causes an increase in shooting pains down the nerve pathway. Tension is released by an increase in muscle temperature. It also improves tissue elasticity and allows tension to decrease and muscles to relax. Decreasing tension prevents trigger points from forming and reduces acute pain.

How will a neck massage help you with tight muscles?

 

A neck massage treatment is useful for releasing muscle tightness. Muscle tightness is very common in people and is most often caused by poor posture, muscle overuse or injury.

A neck massage aims to reduce muscle tightness and improve muscle tissue elasticity.

A neck massage will help to increase blood circulation due to the creation of friction. As blood flow increases, muscle temperature rises. If muscle temperature rises it can loosen muscle fibres and they can relax. Relaxed muscle fibres allow a muscle to stretch to its full length and improve tissue elasticity. When muscles can stretch to their full length with no pain or restriction, muscle tightness has been reduced.

Just a few ways neck pain treatment can improve your life.

  • Reduce muscle pain and soreness
  • Improve blood flow
  • Tension headache relief or prevention
  • Helping improve your posture
  • Injury recovery
  • Building a stronger immune system
