Massage, whether conducted in a softly lit day spa or a treatment room at a physical therapy clinic, is something many people use to soothe sore joints and muscles, to ease anxiety or to help them sleep better. Regular massage of muscles and joints, whether by a licensed therapist at a spa or by self-massage at home, can lead to a significant reduction in pain for people with arthritis.
In a recently published article entitled, “Massage Therapy for Arthritis,” author and expert, Jeff Denny, writes:
“There are over one hundred types of Arthritis disease known to modern science that afflict the human body. The manifests, symptoms, and conditions vary based on individual and type of Arthritis,” adding that often times massage therapy patients will attest to the fact that the simple touching of a therapist is comfort in itself. “Different massage therapists will offer different approaches to the treatment of Arthritis, and it is up to the client/patient to determine which one works best for them.”
If you’re interested in trying one of the many types of massage as a way to ease your arthritis symptoms, it’s important to consult your rheumatologist or primary-care physician first to ensure that massage is safe for you. Some techniques may involve strong pressure to sensitive tissues and joints, or moving limbs into various positions that may be difficult for someone with damaged joints from a disease like rheumatoid arthritis or ankylosing spondylitis.
“Elimination of toxins is also important for Arthritis patients. Toxins can accumulate and crystallize throughout the body in the tissue, blood stream, nervous system, and the joints. This creates congestion and virtual cesspools in the internal milieu that can manifest as symptoms of Arthritis,” Denny writes.”
