“I have been treated by Keishi for over 2 years now and it is my pleasure to highly recommend his service. He is always polite, and although busy can usually fit me in within a day or two. Although his premises are not ‘fancy’, they are always impeccably clean and comfortable.

His treatment is thorough and quite relaxing but, more importantly, is genuinely REMEDIAL. When I first began treatment with him I was suffering regular, significant pain due to an ongoing problem in my back that resulted in reduced mobility and almost continual headaches.

I had already tried several other practitioners with little or no improvement. Since I have been seeing Keishi I have experienced significant improvement in my condition. The painful flare ups that were previously occurring monthly, now happen at most only once or twice a year, and when they do occur they are resolved much quicker than they used to.

I now primarily attend his practice as a preventative measure. Thank you Keishi!”

How To Stay Pain-Free In Bed

Whether you are recovering from an injury, having trouble sleeping, suffering from fibromyalgia or you simply spend a lot of time in your bed, there are some aspects that you need to consider, especially if you are experiencing pain in certain areas such as the lumbar region or your neck and shoulders.

There are millions of people experiencing pain due to various factors; sometimes spending too much time in bed may eventually worsen it, especially if you have sensitive areas. The act of sleeping itself is another issue and most people are actually using incorrect positions for their body, making their condition even worse. So whether you are simply lying in bed, sleeping or spending time on your laptop, these are the things you need to consider in order to minimize your injury risk and stay pain free.

Sleeping properly – the first thing a person needs to learn is to have a correct sleeping position. This is important even if you don’t experience pain while in bed yet; incorrect sleeping positions mean poor sleep, poor posture, muscle strain, tendon pain, etc. The most important aspect is to support your back properly while sleeping.

If you are sleeping on one side, you can easily support your back by using a body pillow, or two large pillows which will be placed as follows: one between your knees and the other hugged in front of you. Make sure that the third pillow, the one that holds your head will allow your neck to rest in a comfortable position that aligns it properly with your spine. If you prefer to sleep on your back, putting a pillow under your knees will allow you to keep the strain from the lower back and help it relaxed.

Sleeping on your stomach is not really recommended for your neck and lower back and should be avoided as much as possible; however, there are ways to make sure it’s a safer way to sleep by putting a slim or no pillow under your head and possibly by having another pillow in front of you to rest your shoulder on and one under your pelvis to keep off the strain from the lower back.

If you sleep in a correct position it will help you wake up pain free in the morning by allowing your aching muscles to relax. And since we’re talking about sleep, having a good mattress is also something you need to take into consideration. There are no good mattresses or bad ones so it really depends on how you feel when you use it, some people prefer firm mattresses while others prefer soft ones.

It’s always a good idea to have a heat pack next to you if you experience pain during the night; heat will help you reduce pain and it’s a good way to alleviate whatever pains you have before going to sleep. Another thing that helps is to have a hot shower before going to bed.

If you are bound to your bed due to an injury or illness, it can put a lot of stress on your back and joints, causes loss of muscle mass, muscle pain, and people are even more prone to developing blood clots. A few good ways to stay pain free is to change your position frequently as much as possible and make sure that the pillows you are using are helping your body sleep more comfortably.

People who are completely immobilized due to injury should have someone come and massage their unaffected areas to help with the circulation as well as the stiffness and pain that often occur when being in the same position for hours. As noted earlier, warm compresses, as well as ice compresses will also help with pain. Don’t forget to ask for help when changing positions and use multiple foam pillows to keep your legs elevated or keep your neck in a comfortable position.

If you are not bed ridden but experience pain whenever you go to sleep, getting a full body massage a few hours before going to bed might help you relax and alleviate muscle pain. Another way to alleviate pain is to do some stretching as well as some light exercise just before going to bed as it will also help you sleep better. Some people also find taking a short walk just before going to bed a good way to relax and studies show that walking helps with back pain due to muscle injury more than bed rest does.

This might work just as good or even better than taking pain medication before sleeping, but if you still feel a bit sore, you should take some over the counter anti-inflammatory pills before going to sleep for an uninterrupted rest.

If you would like to get rid of the pain and aches you always suffer when you get up in the morning, visit www.remedialmassage-goldcoast.com.au and book an appointment. Pain relief in the form of remedial massage, sports massage and deep tissue massage on the Gold Coast is just a phone call away.

Minimize Pain And Discomfort While Driving

At the Pain Relief Massage Clinic on the Gold Coast, some of our regular clients are truck drivers, bus drivers or even airplane pilots. They are stuck in the driver’s seats for hours and it’s almost impossible to stay pain free or discomfort-free.

People who drive for extended periods of times, such as professional drivers, know how painful it can become if done excessively. They often have problems most commonly with their lower back, shoulders or neck, but other problems that may occur are headaches, foot cramps or swelling of the legs. These symptoms as well as any injury that occurs due to spending too much time driving is called a Repetitive Drive Injury.

You don’t need to be a professional driver to get such a discomfort as it can happen to anyone who doesn’t drive as much, but who is simply going on a road trip and will be spending many hours driving. A good idea would be to have someone with you who can take up part of the driving and save you a lot of pain, but that’s not always possible and professional drivers don’t have that option.

Fortunately, there are several tips that can help you minimize the discomfort or stay pain free while driving and avoid any strains and injuries that might occur during this activity, even when performed for hours.

It is normal to feel pain and discomfort when you are stuck in the same position for a long amount of time, and sometimes, without realizing, we go for much too long before we actually stop to stretch our body. This is why, if you are planning a long drive, you should use your alarm clock and pause every hour for a quick stretch.

If you are worried you might not make it on time to your destination, note that this stretch should take no more than a few minutes, but it’s an important step to stay pain free and avoid putting a strain on your body. Even before you start your driving, you should do some stretching exercises to help prevent any back or shoulder pain. This is very important since driving is associated with bad circulation and it might help you prevent more serious issues that may occur in the future.

Another common problem that is associated with driving injuries is bad posture. The majority of people have trouble maintaining good posture while driving which causes a multitude of problems later in life and may be the main reason why they experience pain while doing this activity. Some keep their shoulders forward, others keep their head too forward or their back slumped, all postures that put a tremendous strain on your lumbar and shoulder area.

But before working on your posture, make sure that your car seat has been set correctly so that you can sit comfortably, with your back straight and enough room to keep your arms on the wheel in a comfortable position, you shouldn’t feel the need to move your body forward as it will increase the stress on your back and neck. Lower back support is a must. A rolled towel placed between your lower back and the back rest works very well.

How to avoid stiffness – while driving, you can also try to change your position a bit or move a little from time to time to make sure that there isn’t too much pressure on the same point. For example, putting too much pressure on your lower back will cause pain which can be quite severe and even debilitating for some.

Another aspect that you need to evaluate is also your driving style; good posture and driving style shouldn’t cause pain, even during prolonged hours, so note the areas where you feel stiff or where you feel pain and consciously adjust your position while driving in order to re-learn to have a better posture.

Professional drivers might also benefit to do some changes in their daily life if they develop certain pains due to their occupation. There are many issues related to excessive driving that can be easily prevented with a few changes. Some great ways to prevent pain, circulation problems, stiffness and repetitive strain injuries as well as to improve overall health is to start having a regular exercise routine, get enough sleep every night on a comfortable bed, stretch more or visit a massage therapist regularly. These activities will not just improve your posture but also your life quality as well as preventing any issues while driving.

If you tend to suffer from any kind of pain, stiffness or ache while driving on the Gold Coast, click and visit www.remedialmassage-goldcoast.com.au and have a treatment at least once a month. Regular clinical massage on the Gold Coast will keep you going.

Consequence Of Seeing Undertrained Massage Therapists On The Gold Coast

Massage therapy on the Gold Coast seems to be a risk-free approach to symptoms of pain and stiffness, but sometimes the level of experience and knowledge of your massage therapist might complicate things. There are numerous cases of people going for a quick massage to relax only to end up later in the hospital with various health issues due to an undertrained therapist. Although serious complications are indeed rare, they do exist and sometimes they can leave permanent damage, such as paralysis.

One of the most common consequences of going to unqualified massage therapists on the Gold Coast is worsening the injuries you already have or simply causing new injuries. For example, there have been cases where a patient with a sprained ankle ended up going to the emergency room after being massaged by someone who was under-qualified and didn’t realize the sprained ankle shouldn’t have been massaged so vigorously.

There was another case of a man who collapsed after being massaged for a couple of hours which was due to blood poisoning from a detoxifying massage that lasted too long.  A qualified therapist would have known how long the massage should last, depending on the man’s age and medical status and would have asked for feedback during the course of the massage.

Another common injury that is often seen when people go to unqualified massage therapists on the Gold Coast is a neck injury; a neck injury can cause various adverse effects, from numbness to extreme pain and soreness. Although some deep tissue massage techniques may cause a bit of soreness afterwards, too much soreness with inflammation should be a concern.

There have been cases of people who suffered from compression of the upper cervical spinal cord which lead to an emergency trip to the hospital. If you start experiencing nausea during your massage, you should stop immediately and check if it’s due to a spinal cord injury.

Of course, this would not usually happen with a qualified massage therapist on the Gold Coast who knows how and where to put pressure in order to provide safe therapy. Cases in medical journals reported people getting a stroke from massaging their neck for too long and too deep.

Another alarming case was with a man who had his ribs cracked due to an unqualified massage therapist who was massaging his back. If you are wondering how that might happen, it is usually due to heavy pressure put by the massage therapist in the rib region and by pressing the ribcage on the massage table. Of course, the rib cracking is probably one of the most severe things that can happen.

A very common injury that is caused by an underqualified massage therapist who puts pressure in the rib area is the sprain of the costochondral joints. This isn’t as severe as a cracked rib but it can take weeks to heal and the patient will usually experience moderate to severe pain, especially at night, while in bed whenever they are lying on their stomach.

Broken bones and other short term injuries eventually heal, but what would be more frightening than paralyzing just because you chose the wrong massage therapist on the Gold Coast? A man from China was the unlucky patient of a massage therapist with very little experience. While practicing her skills on the man he collapsed and seemed to have trouble breathing.

At the hospital, doctors noticed that he was unconscious and was unable to breathe on his own. X-rays showed that somehow the massage therapist had managed to displace the first and second vertebrae of his neck, which left the man paralyzed.

A similar experience happened to a woman who received a neck massage at her workplace. The woman suffered a stroke after the massage, which ultimately left her paralyzed from the neck down. She considered the massage to be very rough and felt sore and dizzy afterwards, only to be found collapsed in her home a few days later.

This is why health professionals urge those seeking massage to make sure that they fully understand their medical history and they do enough research to find a good Gold Coast massage therapist beforehand. Those suffering from chronic illnesses should be especially careful. Even more, people seeking to relax with a massage or planning to follow a course of treatment that includes regular massage sessions should ask their medical practitioner whether they are a good candidate for this procedure.

Your medical doctor is the only one who can give an accurate opinion based on your medical history. Even then, there’s still a risk that you might end up in the hands of someone inexperienced. There are many unqualified massage therapists on the Gold Coast who leave permanent damage even if you are completely healthy, so researching and dealing with someone with years of experience and great reviews is always the key to a safe massage therapy session.

If you would like to see qualified well-trained massage therapists on the Gold Coast, click and visit www.remedialmassage-goldcoast.com.au and see what you think. This is a massage clinic for pain relief purpose and even medical doctors on the Gold Coast come regularly as patients.

Best Lower Back Pain Relief Device When You Are Flying

I have no medical issue with my lower back. No osteoarthritis. No bulging disc. No nothing. But I always suffer from bad lower back pain whenever I have to sit on a badly shaped seat. It’s horrible. Especially when you are flying overseas for hours.

A humble-looking inflatable beach ball just like this works like a magic when you are flying or sitting inside a car. It costs between $1 and $3 at toy shops. Seats in the airplane and cars are usually badly designed and you can’t maintain natural curve of the spine without some kind of support.

A ball Inflated with two breaths and a full size ball

A ball Inflated with two breaths and a full size ball

The beauty of a beach ball is that you can make it very small when carrying it and when it’s used properly it fits any shape of lower back and the seat you are sitting on. All you have to do when you want to use is inflate it with two or three breaths and place it between your lower back and the back rest or your seat. I wouldn’t fly anywhere or drive anywhere without it.

I used to use a rolled towel when I was flying but it’s just too bulky and heavy to carry with me all the way to the destination. Then I decided not to take the rolled towel and instead tried an empty water bottle after drinking it. It worked ok when flying. But when I got to the destination, as soon as I started driving a rental car, it failed. Just because of the badly designed car seat, my lower back ache was so bad I couldn’t keep sitting in the car for more than a few minutes.

The beach ball works wonder both when flying and driving.

What a technologically advanced device!?

Pain Issue Related To Rectus Femoris Muscle And Sports Massage Therapy

Our clinic called Pain Relief Massage Clinic on the Gold Coast often receives customers who have huge muscles in their thighs such as hamstrings and quadriceps. Bodybuilders tend to have what I call overgrown muscles in their legs but rectus femoris muscle is easy to palpate and treat regardless of its size. Regular sports massage is essential for bodybuilders and athletes on the Gold Coast unless they don’t mind being accident-prone.

The rectus femoris muscle is one of the quadriceps muscles located in the front part of the thigh, linked to the hip area and the knee joint. All parts of the quadriceps are attached to the knee cap via the quadriceps tendon. The other three parts that make the quadriceps muscle are called vastus lateralis, vastus medialis and vastus intermedius. The rectus femoris muscle is located exactly in the front on the thigh, right in the middle and its function is to help extend the knee as well as flexing the thigh.

One particular characteristic of the rectus femoris muscle is the fact that it is the only muscle used in hip flexing so injuries to the rectus femoris are also called hip flexor strains. Due to its location, rectus femoris injury occurs in athletes who use force movement such as kicking a ball or sprinting, so football and soccer players are statistically more prone to injury either from overuse or a force movement.

Explosive movements, lack of warming up before exercise or an abnormal posture of the knee while engaging the rectus femoris muscle are the most common causes of injury. People who feel pain and continue heavy exercising or activity involving this muscle risk deep tears and possibly the complete tear of the muscle so caution is advised, especially with athletes and people who work out regularly.

The first sign of injury and inflammation is a sharp pain in the groin area during the use of the rectus femoris as well as pain during knee raises and kicking. A person with a rectus femoris injury will usually feel like something is blocking their movement and may experience a high level of pain when trying to force their movement past their stiffness. In most cases, mild to severe pain as well as weakness is experienced at first.

If a person experiences severe pain and impairment, especially if they are a younger person such as an adolescent who hasn’t had fully developed bones and muscles yet, a medical opinion is needed to make sure that no bones have been broken. Sometimes, if the muscle has been torn completely, surgery is needed, but in most of the time, when tears are not as severe, bed rest and over the counter treatment along with some massage therapies will lead to complete healing.

Some people may experience bruising and tenderness when pressing the area. Immediate care should include the immobilization of the knee in 120° of flexion and ice application; this is extremely important because if the leg is held into a resting flat position the muscle will form scar tissue that will impede flexing the knee properly and will cause a delayed healing process and even more pain during the first phases.

The treatment for a rectus femoris injury is usually simple and it includes rest and applying ice on the area while there is swelling and pain. Ice should be applied for the first 48 hours, once every 20 minutes to an hour; this helps greatly reduce the inflammation and pain. Patients can also take over the counter anti-inflammation medication to help with the swelling and pain. As the swelling subsides and the pain disappears it is important to restart your normal day to day activities as much as you can.

Light exercise, such as using a stationary bike as well as long walks can help a person with an injury recover faster. If the person is an athlete, they will need to follow the guidance of their doctor and sports massage therapist to see what type of rehabilitation workout would be appropriate at their respective healing phase. Recovering from a rectus femoris muscle injury will usually take a couple of weeks, if the tear is more superficial it could take up to a week to heal but if it’s a severe tear it will sometimes take a couple of months to a year, which can make things difficult for athletes who have to participate in competitions.

If the patient is not an athlete, they can do stretching at home by slowly flexing their knee for a few times a day until it is comfortable to increase the difficulty.

Other natural methods can help with the treatment of a muscle injury as well as making sure that you prevent any other injury. Practicing yoga, stretching regularly or regular sports massage sessions between workouts can do wonders in making sure that your muscles are healthy and strong, as well as help you relax and rest properly.

Sports massage therapy is extremely important and can be of great help for athletes who are going through an intensive workout regimen to help their muscles cope with the amount of exercise needed. Those recovering after an injury will notice that sports massage therapy can help eliminating scar tissue as well as managing any pain that they might still experience.

Remedial Massage For Pain Symptom Related To Triceps Brachii Muscles

The triceps brachii muscle is located in the upper arm and goes along the humerus between the elbow and the shoulder. The medial head of the triceps is one of the main elbow extensors while the long head adducts and extends the arm. It also serves to stabilize the shoulder which is one of the more sensitive joints, prone to injury so the triceps brachii has an important role in keeping it stable and healthy.

It’s very easy to access and treat the triceps brachii muscle as no other muscle is in the way when a remedial massage therapist is targeting this muscle. Even firm squeezing motions are possible and it’s easy to loosen this muscle.

This muscle is usually worked through triceps extensions with weights or cable push downs as well as push ups or bench presses. A lot of care is needed by those who are just starting to work out or athletes who are pushing themselves too hard, because an injury can cause more than just a great deal of pain but also numbness and difficulty performing simple day to day tasks.

It is very common to injure the triceps tendon or the muscle itself. A strain usually occurs in the area where the triceps muscle and the tendon connect, either at the elbow joint or the shoulder joint but it can occur anywhere on the muscle. Strains can be classified according to their severity, from light sprains that only involve over stretching of the muscle with minimal inflammation or pain to more severe strains that may involve the complete separation of the muscle fibres and the loss of the arm’s function.

The most common cause is overuse or a sudden use of the muscle that may twist it or require more force than the muscle is able to provide. Some people might not even notice that they have an injured tendon because they might have micro tears in their tendon. If no special care is taken they can lead to partial tears or a complete rupture of the tendon. A completely ruptured tendon or partial tear can also be due to overuse or sudden force.

It is very important to act quickly in the first few hours of the strain or severe injury by applying a cold compress over the affected area. This will help reduce inflammation and swelling. After the swelling goes down you can try applying warm packs to reduce pain. Using anti-inflammatory drugs can help you relieve pain as well as reduce inflammation and swelling in the affected area.

Treatment for severe strain and injuries can include a remedial massage therapy to help with recovery as well as surgery when the ruptured muscle has been disconnected from the bone so if you suspect something severe has happened you should seek medical advice immediately.

Patients who are recovering from the triceps brachii muscle injury should do gentle elbow movements to avoid experiencing stiffness and strengthen their muscle. A compression bandage is also helpful as it supports the muscle and the joints so that it can heal properly. Obviously having a regular remedial massage is the best way to keep the muscle loosened and healthy.

The most common symptom after the injury has taken place is pain, followed by tenderness, inflammation and, eventually, a bruise on the exact location that was injured. Some people might also experience a popping sensation when they injure themselves and afterwards the inability to extend their shoulder or their elbow, depending on where the injury is located. One of the most concerning symptom for some is a sound when they move their hand.

Unfortunately injuries of the triceps brachii muscle can take a long time to heal and people might spend up to 12 months to recover properly. It is recommended to do some light exercise and a short session of massage therapy during this period.

Although injury of the triceps brachii is common, there are some people who are more at risk. Athletes who use their shoulders and hands such as tennis players, basketball players, etc. will eventually injure themselves from overuse. Another group that is often affected by triceps brachii muscle injuries is bodybuilders who lift weights or people who incorporate push ups in their training regimen.

The use of steroids and even corticosteroids injections will make people more prone to get injured. The last group is comprised of those with overall poor strength and flexibility in that area, as well as those who haven’t recovered properly from an injury.

There are some precautions you can take to make sure that you don’t injure yourself. If you have a regular exercise regimen or you are an athlete, you should warm up and stretch beforehand. Allowing your body to adapt to a new exercise regimen by resting properly between workouts will also decrease your chance of injury. Another important aspect is to learn how to use the correct techniques and posture while working out. Maintaining a good physical fitness can also help you avoid injuries.

If you have trouble with your upper arm or triceps brachii muscles and need a treatment with a remedial massage, sports massage or deep tissue massage on the Gold Coast, click and visit www.remedialmassage-goldcoast.com.au and feel better already.

Deep Tissue Massage For Pain And Neurovascular Symptoms From Pectoralis Minor Muscle

At the Pain Relief Massage Clinic here on the Gold Coast, sometimes we need to treat this small muscle called pectoralis minor. Clients with pectoralis minor problem tend to show the symptom of pain in front of the shoulder. If this muscle is shortened, tightened and contracted, it can also cause neurovascular symptoms by entrapment of the neurovascular bundle to the arm.

As this muscle is relatively small and located underneath the thick pectoralis major muscle, it’s often hard to find and treat it. It is easy to find and treat it if the client is very skinny. But if the client’s pectoralis major is very thick and tight, or if the client’s muscles are covered by thick fat layer, it is almost impossible to locate this small muscle. We just have to do our best.

We would like people to know that even what we call Deep tissue massage is unable to access and treat deep tissue if muscles are covered and protected by thick different type of tissue.

The pectoralis minor is found underneath the larger pectoralis major. The muscle has a flat shape and is quite thin, particularly when compared to the other pectoral muscle and is one of the smallest muscles in the chest.

The muscle is connected to the third, fourth and fifth ribs, where it also originates, and stretches to the hook-like coracoid process of the scapula, also known as the shoulder blade. The muscle is identical on both sides of the ribcage and in both cases the origins of the pectoralis minor are the lateral costal cartilages.

The pectoralis minor has the function of pulling the scapula (shoulder blade) forward, downward and inward. Stabilizing the scapula can be achieved by depression of the shoulder by this small muscle. This muscle also works as an accessory respiratory muscle during forced inspiration. During strong inhalation by upper chest, the pectoralis minor is activated.

The muscle’s actions can be quite varied, depending on the situation and how other elements and muscles in the body are functioning. For example, when contracted, the pectoralis minor muscle can pull the shoulder blade down and forward on the ribcage. In case the shoulder is held rigid by other muscles groups (like the levator scapula or trapezius muscle for example) contracting the pectoralis minor muscle will lead to an elevation of the ribcage.

Tension in this complex muscle can have a series of complications and consequences. For example, the winging of the scapula can occur when there is chronic tension in the pectoralis muscle. The winging of the scapula means that the medial border and inferior angle of the scapula are lifted away from the ribs and it is easily visible on the outer shape of the body.

Another repercussion of pectoralis minor pressure can be neurogenic pain and even numbness in the hand, fingers and forearm. This happens when the tension in the muscle compresses the nerves of the brachial plexus which are found in the general shoulder area. Tension in this muscle can also affect the blood flow to the forearm. This happens due to the compression of the axillary artery. Trigger points in the pectoralis minor muscle can also lead to thoracic outlet syndrome.

When it comes to trigger points in the pectoralis minor muscle, there is just one major one, however, if activity is intense in said trigger point, a second one can appear in the area where the muscle attaches to the coracoid process. The second trigger point can easily be resolved once the first trigger point is treated and no longer produces discomfort.

Pain in the pectoralis minor muscle is generally felt in the anterior shoulder part and in some rarer occasions it can be felt across the chest. It is also quite often that pectoralis minor muscle pain can radiate to the upper part of the arm, the elbow, the forearm, the palm as well as the pinkie, ring and middle fingers.

The way the pain radiates from the pectoralis minor muscle is similar to the way trigger points cause pain in the clavicular division of the pectoralis major.

Regarding the symptoms of a trigger point in the pectoralis minor muscle, the following may be the most frequent:

Pain felt in the shoulder region which often radiates to the chest while also radiating down the arm towards the pinkie, ring and middle fingers. Pain felt in the muscle, which can also often be confused with heart pain due to its proximity.

Another symptom for trigger points in the pectoralis minor is pain on the inside of the elbow that is similar to golfer’s elbow. The hurt arm can also make it hard to reach forward and upward, as well as give out a weak pulse at the wrist.

Pain Relief For Biceps Femoris Muscle Issues

At the Pain Relief Massage Clinic here on the Gold Coast, sometimes customers bring their leg issues. Runners and athletes on the Gold Coast tend to complain of their leg soreness and sharp pain regularly. The cause of the symptom is often related to one of the hamstring muscles called biceps femoris.

Although pain relief for this muscle by what we call remedial massage, sports massage and deep tissue massage is not too difficult, regular maintenance massage before you notice any symptom is a must for runners and athletes on the Gold Coast.

The biceps femoris muscle is one of the hamstring muscles and has a long head and short head. The long head crosses both the hip and knee joints whereas the short head crosses only the knee joint. Proximally the long head originates from the ischial tuberosity.

Distally it is joined by the short head and they form a tendon that inserts in the head of fibula. The short head originates proximally from the lateral lip of the linea aspera. The short head distally joins the long head in a common tendon and inserts into the head of the fibula.

The basic function on the biceps femoris muscle is the extension of the thigh at the hip joint. A major function of the hamstring muscles including the biceps femoris is to restrain the tendency toward hip flexion during walking. The biceps femoris muscle is also essential when it comes to running as it helps with acceleration and deceleration.

Pain associated with the biceps femoris muscle is usually caused by an injury; the muscle can be easily injured from overuse or too much stretching during common day to day activities but also through an exercise regimen that was executed too much or incorrectly. Sometimes a severe injury can even lead to torn muscles and ligaments so it is important to seek medical advice if you experience a great deal of pain and numbness.

Repeated injuries in this area can even cause a chronic inflammation of the tendons and the sheath, called tendonopathy. Unfortunately, injuries sustained in this area can take a long time to heal, from one to six months with continuous pain even while resting.

There are some risk factors that may play an important role in the injury of the biceps femoris muscle. When it comes to athletes there may be an imbalance between the strength of the hamstrings and the quadriceps which can cause a strain. Another important factor is warming up before exercise as a muscle that hasn’t been properly stretched is at the highest risk especially if the exercise regimen is severe.

Fatigue is another common risk that athletes take every time they overuse their muscles; resting properly should be part of their regimen and can prevent many common injuries. Poor exercise techniques as well as bad posture can also contribute to developing a strained muscle so before starting exercising people should ask a professional for guidance to avoid such injuries.

People with trigger points in the biceps femoris often experience pain when walking. They tend to limp as loading this muscle when walking can be very painful. When sitting, people with those contraction knots usually experience pain at the back of the knee due to the pressure on the muscle contraction knots.

Other symptoms and discomfort that originates from biceps femoris muscle are usually related to everyday activities as people will have trouble performing simple exercises due to pain or stiffness. Activities as simple as walking, climbing the stairs or even bending over are made almost impossible to perform when the biceps femoris muscle is injured.

Tendonopathy is widespread within athletes and people who do regular exercise and it’s associated with micro tearing of the muscle.

Immediate treatment for injuries of biceps femoris include: compression in the area, avoiding any effort for a couple of days and immediately applying ice on the affected area. Other ways to alleviate symptoms are: resting the affected leg elevated, avoiding sitting, light exercise after a couple of days when the pain has subsided, light stretching, etc.

People who get any type of muscle injury should always wear an elastic support to reduce swelling and support the joint at least until a few days pass and the injury is somewhat healed.

Medication for tendinopathy usually consists of anti-inflammatory pills such as ibuprofen to deal with the pain but also with the swelling and inflammation. Sometimes ultrasound and laser treatment, as well as physical exercise are suitable ways to heal faster; the most important thing a person needs to do is make sure that they rest properly and do light exercise to maintain their flexibility and muscle mass during recovery.

It is important to remember that people who had prior injuries of the biceps femoris muscle have an increased chance to injure the area again and they are prone to severe muscle tears and ligament rupture so they should take extra attention if they are planning to exercise or overuse this particular area of their body. It is also important to make sure that the area is completely healed after an injury and ask for professional help if the pain doesn’t go away within a week.

Getting back into your routine should be done slowly with special attention to exercise and movement that use the hamstring muscle in order to avoid a more serious tear while the muscle is healing. Special precautions should be taken by elderly people, pregnant women or overweight people as they are more susceptible to injuries.

Polymyalgia Relief By Professional Massage Therapy

At the Pain Relief Massage Clinic on the Gold Coast, we sometimes come across the diagnosis called Polymyalgia rheumatic. It is an illness that causes pain in the joints and muscles of the lower back as well as other parts of the body such as thighs, hips or neck.

The reason for the pain is due to the lining surrounding the joins and tendons as it becomes inflamed and may cause a great deal of discomfort. There doesn’t seem to be a clear cause for this particular illness, but genetics can play a huge role and it seems that some environmental viruses can also be blamed.

We believe symptoms of Polymyalgia can be helped by a natural manual treatment called remedial massage therapy. Remedial massage therapy is the treatment of soft tissues such as muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in pain and discomfort management, injury management including rehabilitation.

The main aim of remedial massage is to remove or reduce pain, ache, stiffness and to normalize range of motion of joints. Remedial massage is completely different from ‘feel good” relaxation massage on the Gold Coast.

The disease polymyalgia usually affects people who are older than 55 but it can also occur in younger people sometimes and symptoms can get worse as time passes, especially if people don’t take special care or follow a medical treatment for the symptoms.

Some of the most frequent symptoms when it comes to polymyalgia are usually pain and stiffness in the shoulders, upper arms, neck, lower back, thighs and hips. In some rare cases this illness can be associated with giant cell arteritis, a condition where blood vessels are inflamed and it can lead to stroke. The first symptoms people usually experience are pain in the shoulders and upper body.

However, stiffness can also occur, especially in the morning or after being at your desk or simply being inactive for a long time. These usually lead to a limited range of motions in the affected areas as well as other symptoms that at first glance seem unrelated, such as fatigue, a loss of appetite, depression, a mild fever, etc.

This illness can last for a very long time, especially if left untreated. Usually treatment is necessary for at least six months in order to see positive results and sometimes it’s even prolonged to one or two years. Treatment usually consists in anti-inflammatory drugs but it’s rarely helpful if the symptoms are severe. Corticosteroids and vitamins are also prescribed as well. For some people corticosteroids can have severe side effects.

There are also other treatments that are more natural such as physiotherapy and remedial massage therapy as they can be a great help for managing pain caused by polymyalgia symptoms. Besides pain, one of the main problems people with polymyalgia can expect to develop is insomnia; sometimes a bad flare up of pain may cause lack of sleep as well as anxiety. This is where remedial massage therapy can play a huge role, as the patient is able to relax and also alleviate the constant pain they are experiencing.

Limited activity and stiffness can disrupt normal day to day activities, especially for people who are used to doing physical labour. Remedial massage therapy can play a special role into allowing people a normal life while healing. Remedial massage therapy can help with regaining strength and reduce stiffness almost instantly, not to mention the fact that it can be part of a healthy lifestyle that those with polymyalgia can adopt to better manage their symptoms.

Another benefit of having remedial massage therapy when you are suffering from polymyalgia is reducing fatigue, which in some cases can be severe. People may also experience muscle burning and muscle spasm, which can become quite a nuisance while it takes for the body to completely heal.

Remedial massage therapy is also natural and can be used as a treatment on its own by those who don’t want to take medication, or, along with medication prescribed by your doctor for a complete recovery and a better management of symptoms. Patients should get a clear diagnosis from a physician before starting any treatment on their own, especially when it comes to inflammatory diseases such as polymyalgia.

Even after the illness is gone, some people might still feel a sensibility in their joints and a certain level of stiffness. Remedial massage is especially helpful for areas that are particularly stiff and tight. Through this massage therapy people can restore their flexibility and that dull sensation of pain that usually accompanies stiffness.

This clinical massage therapy will also relax people who are experiencing depression or anxiety as well as improve circulation which will help a great deal in the healing process. Circulatory massage is a great way to not just alleviate pain but also improve the quality of sleep and decrease stress.

One of the great benefits of opting for remedial massage therapy to manage polymyalgia symptoms is the fact that you can find some relief in the first session and even the complete disappearance of pain and other associated symptoms in just a few sessions. This is especially important as it takes a lot of time for the body to heal after this disease and some patients have trouble with the symptoms that usually disrupt their normal activities.

Pain Relief Massage On The Gold Coast Works For Shoulder Pain That Originates From Teres Minor Muscles

The teres minor muscle is basically a tiny skinny muscle that attached to your shoulder blade. Unless you know human anatomy very well, you don’t even notice this muscle exists there. But this tiny muscles plays a significant role in the shoulder motions and it’s a very important muscle that pain relief massage therapists have to pay attention to.

When you suffer from a constant shoulder ache due to regular physical hard work, you tend to do self-massaging the muscles above your shoulder blade. But often the aching problem simply comes from this tiny skinny muscle that’s hiding on your shoulder blade.

How do you know this muscle is the culprit? Learn human anatomy, palpate the muscle and poke it! Then see how you feel. If it’s too hard to do it yourself, you can always visit Pain Relief Massage Clinic on the Gold Coast and see the professional.

The teres minor is one of the rotator cuff muscles. It has a narrow elongated shape and is a key in the way we move our arms and upper body. The teres minor muscle attaches medially to the upper dorsal surface of the scapula near its axillary border and to the aponeuroses that separate this muscle from the infraspinatus muscle and teres major muscle. It attaches laterally to the low impression on the greater tubercle of the humerus bone.

The fibers of the teres minor have an oblique and upward laterally direction with the upper fibers ending in a tendon which is inserted in one of the lowest of the impressions on the greater tubercle of the humerus. The lower fibers of the muscle are inserted into the humerus, just below the above mentioned impressions.

The tendon of the teres minor is united with the posterior part of the capsule of the shoulder joint. When it comes to innervation, the teres minor muscle is innervated by a posterior branch of the axillary nerve at the point where a pseudoganglion is present. The pseudoganglion has no nerve cells, however it has nerve fibers with damage to these fibers being quite painful and complex to treat. Sometimes, the teres minor muscle’s fibers can be fused with the infraspinatus although it is very rare.

The teres minor, along with the infraspinatus, is part of the rotator cuff as they are both attached to the head of the humerus. One of their main roles is to keep the humeral head in the glenoid cavity of the scapula. Other roles include the lateral rotation of the humerus (with the help of the posterior deltoid) as well as other complex movements like transverse abduction, transverse extension and simple extension.

The teres minor muscle can sustain injuries in numerous ways, from atrophy to injury derived from exercising. Problems of this muscle are often times compared to bursitis in the shoulder. As the teres minor forms the rotator cuff along with the infraspinatus, supraspinatus and subscapularis, people who have experienced problems with the above mentioned muscle groups can also have problems with the teres minor.

The most common group of people who experience teres minor muscle problems (although not exclusively) are players of hand based sports (basketball, handball, volleyball, baseball etc.), swimmers and rock climbers.

Pain from the teres minor muscle is often times felt quite intensely in the shoulder, similarly to bursitis. It can also cause tingling in some fingers. When trigger points develop in this muscle, they can cause pain right at the spot where they have appeared or radiate said pain to other parts of the body. A teres minor muscle with trigger points will mostly show signs of pain on the side of the shoulder. Pain can also be felt on the backside part of the arm when the teres minor is injured or under stress.

When it comes to the causes of pain and over-solicitation of the teres minor, most specialists will agree that they are mostly the same as the ones that cause pain in the infraspinatus muscle. In fact, the teres minor is rarely injured or afflicted alone, more often being hurt along with other muscles of the shoulder which have a similar function.

One of the most often met ways of injuring the teres minor muscle is by throwing objects, particularly in the case of athletes. This is mostly due to the repetitive motion of extending and rotating the arm outward. Tears can also occur due to falling on the outstretched hand or while making repetitive sudden thrusts. These tears often take a long time to become chronic and mostly occur near the tendon due to it rubbing against the bone.

When pain or trigger points are present in the teres minor, certain movements can be affected. These movements are often times the same movements affected when infraspinatus pain or injury occurs. The most often met types of movements that are affected by this muscle’s injury are the ones where you rotate your shoulder outwards or where you reach backwards.

Atrophy is also a problem that can affect the teres minor muscle. It is often derived from more serious injury to the rotator cuff but it can also affect the muscle on its own.

People who experience problems with the teres minor muscle will most often complain of shoulder pain, particularly posterior shoulder pain and will rarely associate this problem with restricted motion.

Differentiating between an infraspinatus injury and a teres minor injury can sometimes be quite difficult, particularly as the latter is smaller and weaker. As both muscles basically have the same function, identifying any injury can be hard but not impossible.

One easy albeit painful way of identifying a teres minor injury is by doing a handstand. As balancing requires all parts of the shoulder the teres minor will also be involved. If balancing from side to side appears to be particularly painful or hard, then it is possible that the teres minor muscle may have some sort of injury or related problems.

Pain relief massage therapists and some but not all so-called remedial massage therapists, sports massage therapists and deep tissue massage therapists on the Gold Coast have good anatomy knowledge to find out what’s wrong and relieve your ache and pain.

Treating Dysfunctional Deltoid Muscles With A Sports Massage On The Gold Coast

Men on the Gold Coast tend to have big Deltoid muscles. They do weight lifting regularly at the gym and it looks like they are trying to make those muscles grow bigger and bigger. But you have to be very careful when you do weight lifting regularly.

In general, the more you do weight lifting, the stronger the muscles become. At the same time, the more you do weight lifting, the stiffer the muscles become. Often those muscles eventually come to the point where they cannot be loosened by manual treatments any more and develop constant ache and soreness unless you have a regular sports massage.

The deltoid muscle is one of the most important muscles in the body when it comes to arm function, as well as quite a painful muscle to have injured, as anyone who has ever been to the gym can certainly confirm.

The deltoid is the muscle that gives the shoulder its rounded shape. The muscle is formed from at least seven groups which are independently operated by the central nervous system. The deltoid is made up of three groups of fibers which are also called “heads.”

The first group of fibers is called the anterior fibers or the clavicular fibers. They arise from a big part of the anterior border of the clavicle as well as the upper part of the lateral third of the clavicle. The anterior part of this fiber’ group as well as its tendons originate next to the lateral fibers of the pectoralis major muscle.

The fibers of the pectoralis major muscle and those of the deltoid are closely related with only a small space through which the cephalic vein passes stopping the two from being one continuous muscle. The anterior deltoid fibers are also called the front delts.

The second fibrous group is referred to as the lateral fibers or in some cases as the acromial fibers. Other names for this muscle group include middle deltoids, side deltoids or outer deltoids. These strains of fibers come from the superior surface of the acromion process of the scapula.

The third group of fibers is called the posterior fibers also known as the spinal fibers. They are also sometimes referred to as the posterior deltoids or the rear deltoids. These fibers arise from the lower lip of the posterior border of the spine of the scapula.

This complex muscle structure all leads to the point of insertion in the deltoid tuberosity on the middle lateral aspect of the shaft of the humerus. From the three fibrous groups the middle fibers pass vertically, the anterior fibers pass obliquely and backward and laterally while the posterior pass obliquely forward and laterally.

The insertion itself is divided into two, sometimes three areas which often times correspond to the muscle’s origin. The insertion of the deltoid fibers has an arch shape and also has strong fascial connections, both anterior as well as posterior. The deltoid fascia is also connected to the medial and lateral intermuscular septa as well as the brachial fascia.

The deltoid muscle gets its blood via the posterior circumflex humeral artery as well as the deltoid part of the thoracoacromial artery which is a branch of the axillary artery. As far as nerves are concerned the deltoid muscle is innervated by the axillary nerve which comes from the anterior rami of the cervical nerves C5 and C6.

When it comes to problems that may arise with this particular muscle group, tears, atrophy and enthesopathy are amongst the most severe. Unlike a lot of muscles in the human body, deltoid tears are quite rare, often appearing after severe injury or dislocation.

For atrophy, the causes can be several, with aging, lack of use, and muscular dystrophy being among the most often met. Other causes for atrophy include cachexia, denervation or iatrogenic injury.

Deltoid strains are among the most often met problems with this muscle. They can occur quite frequently and when they do, pain can be felt in the front of the shoulder. A quick way to see if your muscle has suffered a strain is by lifting your arm to the front while keeping it straight.

In case the muscle is torn, tenderness is a symptom while some swelling can also occur. In case of grave injuries, bruises can also appear. Rotator cuff strains are more common than deltoid strains and will mostly manifest the same symptoms.

The best way to keep your muscles trouble-free is to have a regular massage that loosens each muscles. As we always say, you do not need to request a service called Sports Massage, deep tissue massage or remedial massage at a massage clinic on the Gold Coast.

Instead, just explain the benefit you would like to achieve. All you have to say is, “I want to be loosened.” Then the therapist will come up with the feature for that requested benefit.

If you feel some pain in your shoulder and suspect it’s coming from your deltoid muscle, please click and visit www.remedialmassage-goldcoast.com.au and get a result you want by experiencing a sports massage on the Gold Coast.

Pain Relief Massage For Tibialis Anterior Muscle On The Gold Coast

I believe the tibialis anterior is one of the easiest muscles to see, find, feel, palpate and work on as it’s a surface muscle on the leg. At the Pain Relief Massage Clinic, we’ve found that this muscle tends to be tender to minor pressure whether the customer is a runner or not on the Gold Coast.

As you know, in general, healthy muscles are not tender to pressure. If it’s tender, the muscle needs some kind of treatment such as remedial massage, deep tissue massage, sports massage or what we call Pain Relief Massage on the Gold Coast.

The tibialis anterior muscle is one of the most often used muscles in the foot and certainly one of the more complex as well. It is formed in the upper part of the lateral surface of the tibia. It then inserts into the foot at the medial cuneiform as well as the first metatarsal. The tibialis anterior muscle is basically located near the shin and is used to dorsiflex or invert the foot.

It is formed from a thicker section on the superior part of the muscle as well as a thinner, more tendinous one on the lower part of the muscle. The muscle can be easily found on the lateral part of the tibia and one of its many functions is to overlap the anterior tibial vessels as well as the deep peroneal nerve which is located in the superior part of the leg.

The tibialis anterior muscle is first attached on the lateral condyle as well as the upper part of the tibia’s body. It also rises from a part of the interosseous membrane as well as a deeper part of the fascia’s surface; it also arises from the intermuscular septum.

The structure of the tibialis anterior makes its fibers quite fusiform with their position being parallel to the overall plane of the muscle on the insertion. These muscle fibers end in a tendon which is visible on the anteriomedial dorsal part of the foot close to the ankle.

As the muscle develops it passes though the medial compartments of the transverse as well as the cruciate crural ligaments. It ends by connecting to the medial and under surface of the medial cuneiform bone as well as the first metatarsal bone.

When it comes to the innervation of the tibialis anterior muscle it has a deep peroneal nerve which is a branch of the common peroneal nerve L4, L5 and S1.

One quite rare variation of this muscle is that a deep portion of it can be inserted into the talus or otherwise a tendinous slip may go to the head of the first metatarsal bone. It can also pass to the first phalanx of the great toe.

The tibialis anterior muscle is considered the most medial muscle in the anterior compartment of the leg with numerous connections to other muscles, tendons and bone. It allows the dorsiflexing movement and inversion of the foot. The muscle basically allows for the toe to be lifted and held in a fixed position.

It also allows the ankle to be inverted with horizontal movement being a direct repercussion. This horizontal movement is one of the most important bracing and cushioning aspects which protects the foot in case the ankle should ever be inverted.

The muscle is extremely important when it comes to basic human actions like walking or running, but it also plays an important role when climbing, kicking or other such activities which involve its movement or verticality of the leg. It helps lock the ankle when the foot touches the ground during walking or running and also plays a role when the foot is pulled back up. The tibialis anterior also locks the ankle when kicking certain objects.

When the tibialis anterior muscle is used (either by being contracted or stretched), the tibialis anterior tendon is placed under a considerable amount of tension. When the muscle is used to intensely or when there is a significant amount of repetition, the tendon can suffer damage. One of the most often met problems is called tibialis anterior tendonitis. The condition involves damage, inflammation and the degeneration of several parts of the muscle.

When it comes to identifying this condition or numerous other problems of the tibialis anterior muscle, it is important to note that people will feel some sort of pain at the front part of the shin or ankle whenever doing any activity that requires an amount of stress on the muscle. Activities like walking, hiking, playing sports that require kicking, kneeling or even wearing tight shoes can lead to pain in the shin or ankle due to tibialis anterior tendonitis.

Pain often appears gradually and increases as the condition is unaddressed. Pain doesn’t just come from activities that solicit the muscle; it can also come during the rest period after said activities or, in more severe cases, when the muscle’s tibialis anterior tendon is being firmly touched. Another less known cause for the condition is direct rubbing of the tibialis anterior muscle and tendon.

Other conditions that can affect the tibialis anterior muscle are ruptures or even paralysis of the muscle. Paralysis can be a repercussion of polio while ruptures can be easily diagnosed thorough the apparition of sharp pain in the muscle as well as problems coordinating the movement of the ankle.

Pain Relief For Tensor Fasciae Latae Muscle Related Issue With Remedial Massage On The Gold Coast

We usually call this long muscle with long name TFL. TFL is short for tensor fasciae latae. It’s a surface muscle and easy to be accessed by manual therapists such as remedial massage therapist. When our clients have a problem with this muscle, they tend to say they have pain symptom on their hip, lower back or leg. It tends to create constant ache and disturb their sleep.

It’s not difficult to get rid of this pain symptom if you find a good remedial massage therapist.

The tensor fasciae latae muscle is one of the key muscles when it comes to the balance and stability of the pelvis when standing, walking and even running. It is located in the thigh and is related to the gluteus maximus.

The muscle arises from iliac crest, more precisely from the anterior part of its outer lip. It also arises from the outer part of the anterior superior iliac spine as well as, in part, from the outer border of the notch below it.

The tensor fascia latae also arises from the deep surface of the fascia lata. This fascinating muscle is inserted between the two layers of the iliotibial band belonging to the fascia lata at the middle or upper part of the thigh. The muscle helps tense the iliotibial band while also bracing the knee. The final insertion is on the lateral condyle of the tibia.

The tensor fascia latae muscle has a very complex and interesting innervation system. It is mainly innervated by the superior gluteal nerve L5 and S1. The superior gluteal nerve exits the pelvis area by greater sciatic foramen superior towards the piriformis. The superior gluteal nerve is associated mostly with motor innervation and as such there is no innervation for sensation. It rises from the sacral plexus.

The main role of the tensor fascia latae is to help move the hip outward and forward. This flexor and abductor muscle also has a role in rotating the hip inward. Due to the numerous movements it is required to help perform, the tensor fascia latae is one of the quickest muscles to tighten up in this part of the body. While stretching exercises can help the muscle grow in length the muscle is often cited as a source for knee pain or lateral meniscus pain and other issues.

The fascia latae muscle’s fibers are placed in an oblique direction, allowing the muscle to stabilize the hip when it comes to extensions thus helping the gluteus maximus. The muscle is a tensor of the fascia lata which is basically a coat of fibers that surrounds the thigh binding all the muscle structure found there.

The fascia lata combines several tendons fom the gluteus maximus with the tensor fasciae latae on the lateral surface to make the iliotibial band. The iliotibial band stretches from the iliac crest to the lateral condyle of the tibia.

The tensor fascia latae as well as the fascia lata help steady several parts of the body, both in numerous positions. The pelvis is stabilized on the head of the femur thanks to the iliotibial band. The condyles of the femur are also stabilized on the articular surfaces of the tibia thanks to the fascia latae. The muscle also helps the gluteus maximus support the knee in an extended position.

The internal rotation of the tibia is also a movement which is helped by the tensor fascia latae muscle. The same muscle, along with the gluteus minimus and medius help abduct and rotate the femur.

The tensor fascia latae is a key muscle when it comes to walking correctly. It is heavily used for other activities as well. These include riding horses, bicycles or motorcycles as well as skiing. The muscle can sometimes be tightened or shortened and can thus cause a series of problems which result in pain to the hips, lower back as well as the knees.

The easiest way to determine any possible injury or affliction of the tensor fascia latae muscle is by raising the leg opposite to the suspected injury. The tensor fascia latae is immediately activated and tries to maintain balance thus showing any possible injury or weakness in the hip or knee. The most often met injury when pain is felt in the hip and knee is a tensor fascia latae strain.

When it comes to how the muscle produces pain, the first step is a longer period of tightening which can vary from individual to individual. Then, myofascial trigger points tend to appear which can have to do with pain in the hip, groin, buttocks or other parts of the leg.

A more serious contraction of the tensor fascia latae muscle will result in a strain on other muscles due to altered joint movement. Some of the most often met cases of this strain are in the gluteal or piriformis muscles. In this case pain is often felt in the groin, in the hip joint, around the outer hip, in the gluteal muscles, in the sacroiliac joint or in numerous other parts of the leg.

One important reason for problems and pain in the tensor fascia latae muscle is the femoris muscle, more precisely weakness in said muscle. This muscle along with the top quadriceps muscle and the front part of the thigh are a second flexor and can often become weak due to excessive tightening and lead to tensor fascia latae problems as well.

Rhomboid Muscle Release For Upper Back Pain By A Remedial Massage On The Gold Coast

Both rhomboid major and rhomboid minor muscles are easy to access and it is not hard to treat them manually. Even when these muscles are covered by a thick layer of fat, it is not too hard to loosen and release them as rhomboid muscles are not very deeply situated.

The Rhomboid Minor

The rhomboid minor is a muscle that connects the scapula with the vertebrae that are in turn attached to the spinal column. It can be found behind the levator scapulae and the rhomboid major, located quite deep in relation to the trapezius but independent from the spinal muscles. Along with the rhomboid major it helps keep the scapula pressed tightly to the thoracic wall.

The rhomboid minor is inserted in the medial border of the scapula near the scapular spine. It starts from the inferior border of the nuchal ligament as well as from the supraspinous ligaments.

This muscle along with the closely related rhomboid major helps retract the scapula every time the trapezius muscle is contracted. The rhomboid minor and the rhomboid major work as an antagonist for the trapezius, with their main role being to stabilize the scapula by elevating the medial border.

The rhomboid minor’s nerves come from the dorsal scapular nerve, with the majority of nerve fibers coming from the C5 nerve root while only a few nerve fibers hail from the C4 and C6 nerve roots. The blood supply for this muscle comes mainly from the dorsal scapular artery.

The Rhomboid Major

The rhomboid major is described as a skeletal muscle with its main role being to connect the scapula with the spinal column’s vertebrae. It is closely related to the rhomboid minor and helps keep the scapula pressed tight to the thoracic wall. It also helps the scapula move inwardly towards the vertebral column.

This muscle comes from the spinous processes of the T2 through T5 thoracic vertebrae. It also starts from the supraspinous ligament. It connects to the medial border of the scapula starting with the scapular spine.

The muscle has a diamond shape and is located deep in relation to the trapezius, just inferior to the rhomboid minor. The rhomboid major, as the name would suggest, is the largest muscle of the rhomboids. In some cases the two rhomboids are connected and act as a single muscle.

The rhomboid major has nerves hailing from the ventral primary ramus along the C5 dorsal scapular nerve. Like the rhomboid minor, the major gets its blood supply from the dorsal scapular artery. The main function of the rhomboid major is to keep the scapula and in fact the entire upper part of the limb connected to the ribcage.

The rhomboid major, as well as the rhomboid minor also pull the scapula towards the vertebral column. The rhomboids allow the medial border of the scapula to be elevated, while also rotating the scapula downwardly.

When it comes to soreness or potential injury to the rhomboid major or minor, it can lead to limited movement in the upper extremity of the arm and shoulder and sometimes even extreme pain in the shoulder. Scapular instability is a direct consequence of rhomboid issues and it can in turn lead to scapular winging, excessive lateral rotation or even depression of the scapula due to the absent function of the rhomboid major.

Most people first notice problems for these two muscles as a pain in the side of the shoulder blade. While physical activity can be one of the major causes of this condition, it is office employees who most often report rhomboid major or minor muscle problems. This is because while working at a desk, the shoulders stay in a round position for prolonged periods of time. This position stretches the rhomboids and over time can cause them soreness or even more serious problems.

As far as trigger points are concerned, pain is most often felt either at the inner part of your shoulder blade or between the two. While they aren’t massive muscles the rhomboids have a huge importance for everyday tasks we take for granted such as walking or sitting up straight. As they adduct your arm and pull the shoulder blade in the direction of the spine, most movements that involve shoulders (walking, running, exercising, even writing) require these two muscles.

These two muscles can be overworked both actively and passively. Active stress comes from exercise, in particular sports like gymnastics where good form is a must, but it can also come from weightlifting or dancing. Active stress is generally found as a repercussion of forceful contractions, especially for the rhomboid major.

Passive stress comes from office work or any type of work where a round shoulder position is required for an extended period of time. This position elongates the muscles and can cause stress without proper management.

These muscles tend to provoke pain when at rest or when you lie on the stressed side of the body. Reaching your arm out can also provoke moderate pain.

At our Pain Relief Massage Clinic on the Gold Coast, it’s easy to get rid of upper back pain that originates from rhomboid muscles. All we need to do is loosen them, remove contraction knots and stretch them back to the normal length.

You can also perform a self-treatment by rolling on a tennis ball under your Rhomboid muscles while you lie on your back. But you will probably suffer a bad bruise the next day as a side effect due to too much pressure applied from your body weight.

If you would like to come to our Pain Relief Massage Clinic and want us to treat your Rhomboid muscles with Gold Coast remedial massage therapy, click and visit www.remedialmassage-goldcoast.com.au and feel better already.

Treating Subscapularis Muscle Symptoms With Remedial Massage On The Gold Coast

Massage therapists on the Gold Coast who perform remedial massage, sports massage and deep tissue massage often have to handle this hard-to-access muscle called subscapularis.

The subscapularis muscle is quite a large triangular muscle which can be found in the subscapular fossa and the lesser tubercle of the humerus. It also stretches across to the front part of the shoulder joint.

The structure of this muscle is quite complex combining a series of fibers that arise from different parts in the area. The muscle is formed from the medial two thirds and from the lower two thirds of the axillary border groove of the scapula.

Some fibers may also come from the tendinous laminae which go through the muscle, being attached to the edges of the bone structure. Other fibers can come from the aponeurosis which helps separate the muscle itself from the teres major and parts of the triceps brachii.

The fibers of the subscapularis move laterally and after uniting into a tendon join the lesser tubercle of the humerus as well as part of the shoulder joint capsule. A rather large bursa separates the neck of the scapula from the subscapularis tendon. A bursa also separates it from the serratus anterior. The lower and upper subscapular nerves as well as parts of the posterior cord of the brachial plexus provide the subscapularis with sufficient innervation.

The subscapularis muscle is the most powerful muscle of the rotator cuff. It helps the head of the humerus perform a medial internal rotation. In case the arm is placed in a raised position, the subscapularis helps draw the humerus both forward and downward. One of the main roles the subscapularis muscle has is that it prevents the displacement of the head of the humerus offering significant protection to the entire shoulder joint.

The subscapularis muscle is also one of the common parts of the body to overwork or injure as there can be quite significant repercussions in terms of temporary flexibility and movement loss as well as pain. The best way to identify an overworked subscapularis muscle is losing the ability to lift your arm or a frozen shoulder. This is a common condition for certain athletes such as gymnasts or rock climbers. This problem is also quite common for people who overdo their chest workout.

Trigger points can also be present in the subscapularis muscle. They can either produce pain directly in the muscle causing your whole rotator cuff or even shoulder to tense up or they can affect other parts of the body as well.

One of the most often affected parts of the body where subscapularis related pain can be felt is the shoulder blade as well as the back of the shoulder, directly above the armpit. In some severe cases, pain can even radiate down your arm and go as far as your elbow or even wrists.

The reason why overworking your chest can lead to subscapularis pain is that every chest exercise requires an inward rotation of the shoulder. While these movements stress the chest muscles, the same movements stress the subscapularis as well and can lead to overworking or even pain. The subscapularis also has to do extra “work” and stabilize your shoulder for all your complex exercises, particularly for intensive workout sessions.

Another reason for a sore or outright painful subscapularis is bad posture. Bad posture often leads to a rounded back and a crouched chest. This in turn leads to a position where the shoulders are constantly rotated inwardly. As a consequence of this shoulder position, the subscapularis muscle is kept in a shortened position tightening up and causing pain and discomfort.

Another way you can harm your subscapularis muscle is through traumas. One common trauma is slipping on the stairs while keeping your hand on the rail. This sudden movement causes the subscapularis to make an abduction movement, the opposite of its main role which is to make an adduction movement.

The simultaneous stretching and contracting of the muscle can often enough be too much to handle, particularly if your fall is quite severe or if you are overweight. It rarely leads to a tear in the muscle but can make the subscapularis muscle feel overstressed and painful.

When the subscapularis muscle is tender or painful some movements may be impaired. For example, raising your arm at an angle higher than 45° can be quite hard. Another impaired movement is reaching to your other shoulder or extending your arms outwardly. The reason your moves are restricted is that the tension in the muscle is high and would be even higher if it were elongated.

If you want to feel your muscle or check it for any possible trigger points or even tears you can do so by feeling with one arm into the opposite armpit and rotating your shoulder inwardly.

At Pain Relief Massage Clinic on the Gold Coast, we’ve found that Subscapularis muscle problem mimics symptoms of true frozen shoulder. True frozen shoulder is diagnosed as adhesive capsulitis and you would not be able to raise your arm if you suffered from this. When our clinic receives clients who claim that they suffer from frozen shoulder, our remedial massage therapist must distinguish subscapularis shortening from adhesive capsulitis by simple assessments and tests.

Assessing active flexion and active rotation will tell us the degree of immobility. Passive flexion and rotation, and palpation of subscapularis will be also performed. It’s hard to treat this muscle and it’s almost inaccessible. Clients tend to resist by tightening their muscles due to tenderness or tickling sensation or both.

If the cause of what a client calls frozen shoulder is found to be just subscapularis muscle shortening, simply loosening the muscle with remedial massage therapy may be enough to get rid of the symptom altogether. As this muscle is one of the deep tissue muscles, skilled techniques of deep tissue massage or sports massage is required.

Sports Massage On The Gold Coast For Gluteus Medius Muscle Problem

Many people visit our Pain Relief Massage Clinic here on the Gold Coast and bring their hip problems. They often complain of hip or buttock pain which can be constant ache or pain by motions or both. These pain and discomfort often come from gluteus medius muscle and treatment of this particular muscle is not very difficult. This muscle is easily accessible unless it’s covered by a thick layer of fat.

What we call sports massage or deep tissue massage can target the trouble spot of this tissue, get rid of the contraction knot and give customers a good pain relief they want instantly.

The muscle called gluteus medius is one of the gluteus muscles in the buttocks; this particular muscle is very strong and provides rotation of the thigh and supports the hips while walking. Gluteus Medius is attached to the leg at the top of the femur and is also quite close to the hip joint. The fibres of the gluteus medius become a strong tendon that goes on the lateral surface of the greater trochanter with a bursa that separates the tendon of the muscle from its surface.

A healthy gluteus medius promotes balanced and steady walking. In a neutral position the gluteus medius along with the gluteus minimus pulls the thigh away from the midline and when contracted they support the body, especially the pelvis, on one leg. If the muscle becomes injured or weak the knee would go inwards and create stress on the hip and the entire foot.

This causes a limp or abnormal walking, and both of them can be extremely difficult to manage and very painful. It can also cause a condition called trochanteric bursitis which is very painful and involves a great deal of medication, physiotherapy or sports massage to manage.

There are various types of strains related to the gluteus medius and they are linked to a condition called gluteus medius syndrome, which involves the inflammation of the hip and mild to serious pain. The strains that are grade 1 will cause pain but the tendon is not affected, however, if a person experiences a grade 2 type of strain, this will usually involve overstretched tissue or even a partially ruptured tissue.

In both these cases the function of the muscle might be decreased so those experiencing this condition should take the necessary precautions to avoid any strain on that particular muscle. The injuries themselves are caused by high intensity training, too frequent training or even a training session that is too long.

Depending on the type of activity you are doing, there are several ways to increase the risk to such an injury. People who play endurance sports such as distance running or race running are more prone to injure their gluteus medius muscle, especially if the body is not warmed enough for the specific activity.

On the other hand people with poor strength and flexibility are also prone to have this type of injury. There are also genetic factors that can contribute to some people being more at risk to injure their gluteus medius muscle such as legs that are extremely long or a poor alignment in the lower legs, such as a wide pelvis with knees that are too locked up.

The symptoms patients usually experience after an injury are numerous. The most common is pain with reduced function, especially when walking or running. There is also some tenderness to the outer hip along with swelling in some cases. Sometimes people might have some redness in the area where the injury occurred. Those who notice these signs should always make sure that they limit their movement as it may worsen their injury especially with hip movement. They should carefully be transported to a place where they can lie down.

In order to prevent injuries to your gluteus medius muscle, there are several things that need to be taken care of. For example, warming up and stretching well before any physical activity you do will surely lower your chances for any type of injury. Those who don’t engage in physical activity should make sure that they start some routine to avoid any injuries and maintain their physical strength. These should include both strength training and cardiovascular fitness.

For runners there are two important things that they need to remember: first, they need to use a good running technique and even consult an expert before going ahead with any type of running they might want to start; the second issue is shoes, as runners will need a good pair of shoes and if their legs are of different lengths they will need something called orthotics.

Treatment for injures of gluteus medius muscle include ice patches and anti-inflammatory medication as well as cortisone injections. Those who feel like their symptoms might be aggravated by a certain type of activity need to limit that activity and do more strengthening and stretching exercises to build their power.

Sports massage which is a type of deep tissue massage is also a great solution for those who experience pain or a limited range of motion as it will promote healing and will ease any type of discomfort a person may have after an injury. It is also a great way to warm up the muscle before strenuous exercise and it can even be a great way to make sure that a person with an old injury can alleviate some of the symptoms and prevent the condition from worsening with the passage of time.

A Sports Massage Gold Coast Can Offer For Infraspinatus Muscle Related Pain And Discomfort

The term “sports massage” does not really mean anything special. People who play sports tend to call this massage therapy “sports massage” as it’s almost essential for sports players. Sports massage is a synonym for deep tissue massage and it is obviously different from relaxation massage that just keeps rubbing the skin.

At the Pain Relief Massage Clinic on the Gold Coast, customers are not asked what type of massage they want. They are simply asked the purpose of their visit. From time to time, we see clients on the Gold Coast whose discomfort symptom originates from this infraspinatus muscle.

The infraspinatus muscle is located in the back of the shoulder blade as it extends outwards to attach the upper arm. Its main two functions are the stabilization of the joint located in the shoulder and the lateral rotation of the arm. Contracting this muscle will engage the rotation of the arm outwards, like for example when you move your hand to say goodbye.

When it comes to stabilizing the shoulder joint, the infraspinatus muscle contracts to keep the humerus from going out of its socket during the shoulder activity. Besides these two major roles, the infraspinatus muscle is also involved with other muscles in certain types of movement for common activities. For example it allows the lateral rotation of the arm along with the deltoid and the teres minor muscle.

Since this particular muscle is involved with common arm movement, a lot of people experience discomfort or even a great deal of pain that may involve it. There are three trigger points that are connected with the infraspinatus muscle and all make a triangle with the lower part of the muscle.

The pain that radiates from these particular muscles is usually debilitating and can go down from the shoulder joint along the upper arm. In some cases, the pain can be felt throughout the entire arm and hand. This usually happens when a person overuses this particular muscle or when they have a bad posture while working or during other prolonged physical activities.

For example, if someone has to keep their arm raised for a prolonged time or during activities that may involve this type of movement such as: baseball, football, working at the computer, driving, etc. Usually people who have overused these muscles will have certain symptoms that show the gravity of their injury.

The most common symptom is pain located in the front part of the shoulder; the pain usually feels like it is actually the joint which is injured and can be either mild or even extremely intensive in more serious injuries. Usually this type of pain goes hand in hand with a limited range of motion; in this case, the person is unable to reach with their hand behind their back. This is usually due to the stretching and rotating of the muscle, which ultimately leads to pain in this particular trigger point.

Along with this particular type of pain, those with an injured infraspinatus muscle might also feel pain during the night, especially if they sleep on their side. The weight of their body can press on the trigger points from their muscles and cause pain during sleep. In extreme cases people might end up sleeping in a sitting position due to the pain caused by any sleeping position.

Another common symptom when it comes to an injured infraspinatus muscle is the difficulty or even inability to lift the arm to the head and some people might even have issues with eating or brushing their hair. This can be quite debilitating as it interferes with day to day activities as pain will be triggered even with light activity.

Those who are training with weights might injure their muscle during their first sessions. Exercises like bench presses, lifting weights or military presses are quite difficult on the infraspinatus muscle. Another group of people affected by the infraspinatus muscle pain are baseball players, tennis players, football quarterbacks and basically any players that use their hands to play.

Some of them might also suffer from a condition called bicepital tendonitis that makes the biceps area tender. The infraspinatus trigger points are usually to blame for the pain caused in this particular condition so most patients with biceptal tendonitis usually undergo treatment for infraspinatus muscle pain.

Treatment for infraspinatus muscle pain and discomfort is usually simple as it involves a series of natural remedies such as sports massage and exercise. Patients usually undergo a few sessions of sports massage for the trigger points along with prescribed anti-inflammatory pills and mild analgesics. Some might even be advised to do yoga or other type of light exercise while avoiding any muscle strain due to posture. However, it is advised to avoid any intensive activity while the muscle heals.

Those who choose to undergo sports massage will usually see results immediately as the massage helps relieve the pain caused by the muscle’s trigger points. Sports massage can also be used as a single method to treat this particular condition and it is often preferred by patients who don’t want to take pain killers or undergo other types of chemical treatments.

In addition to sports massage, people can also limit their exposure to stressors and strenuous activity in order to avoid any flare ups. Another important aspect of sports massage is the fact that it also relieves pain and stress which can be detrimental to a person’s mental health during a challenging physical condition.

If you suspect your pain symptom might be coming from your infraspinatus muscle and would like to try sports massage on the Gold Coast, click and visit www.remedialmassage-goldcoast.com.au and see who we are.

A Deep Tissue Massage Gold Coast Offers For Soleus Muscle Problem

The soleus muscle, with its name derived from the Latin word “solea”, which means sandal, is one of the more powerful muscles in your body, located in the lower leg in the calf area. The soleus starts from below the knee to the heel and it is connected with the gastrocnemius muscle. Some consider it to be part of a single muscle in the calf, called the triceps surae, while others consider it to be a standalone muscle.

The role of the soleus muscle is to be the plantar flexor at the ankle joint and it’s involved in walking and standing. With the help of this muscle, which forms the Achilles tendon, humans and mammals can apply a great deal of force through the ankle. For example, the muscle is used when a person pushes off the ground while walking or standing on their toes, which are the basic ways in which to exercise this particular muscle.

Other activities that engage the soleus muscle are running or dancing as well as preventing the body from falling forward. Besides that, it helps pump blood from the feet to the heart.

Here at Pain Relief Massage Clinic on the Gold Coast, a lot of runners visit us regularly. Smart runners know that having a deep tissue massage or sports massage regularly is the only way to prevent unexpected leg injury. Asking for deep tissue massage when their muscles are in trouble is a wise thing to do, but having this massage treatment regularly is a lot wiser. Tearing calf muscles badly due to a lack of muscle maintenance is not uncommon and the consequence for that can last for the rest of the runner’s life on the Gold Coast.

One of the most common injuries in this area are strains which usually involve the soleus muscle alone or the soleus muscle and another muscle; strains in this area often include the tearing of these muscles and causes pain in the lower part of the leg. During the contraction of the calf, the tension is placed through this muscle and when the muscle experiences too much tension or a lot of repetition, the muscle can be strained or even torn.

Usually, calf strains involve more superficial lessions but when the lesion is deep they can end up injuring the soleus muscle. There are several types of calf strains and usually specialists assign grades from 1 to 3 in order to classify them. The first grade includes a small number of torn fibers with some pain, however the calf has a full function; the second grade involves moderate loss of function with a significant amount of pain; and the third grade involves an extreme amount of pain with significant loss of function as well as the most of the muscle fibers being ruptured.

The reasons for calf strain, no matter what grade, are usually various. For example one of the most common is when the muscle is gradually worn out by overuse. This type of wear and tear usually happens when people engage long term in strenuous activities such as running or walking uphill. Another common way to strain the soleus muscle is by stretching it too much; this usually means having an accident while being in a certain position, for example a forced forward position. A lot of athletes experience calf strains especially if they are involved in sports like football, tennis or squash.

In the first moments after the accident that produces a calf strain, the person might feel a sharp pain in their muscle as well as a sort of tightening. People who experience this should immediately stop whatever they are doing and seek a place to rest. After a couple of minutes to an hour they might experience swelling as well as muscle spans and weakness. In the most severe cases people might also walk with a limp and experience a great deal of pain when using the affected leg.

It is recommended to avoid all activities and make sure that you get plenty of rest afterwards. When the calf is almost healed people can resume their physical activity routine but they will have to make sure that they incorporate lighter exercise for a while, until the strain is completely healed.

With the help of a physician in the most severe cases, people can recover in a couple of months. For cases that are milder people might even be able to resume their normal activity in a few weeks. However, if the muscle is completely torn, some people might need surgery as well as a rehabilitation program in order to fully recover their leg and might even end up returning to their normal activities in a few months or even longer.

To aid in the process of healing, medical doctors on the Gold Coast may recommend taking anti-inflammatory medication, doing light exercise as well as getting some deep tissue massage or sports massage. These therapeutic massage treatments are great ways to help the tissue heal as well as make sure that you avoid future accidents by keeping the muscle in the best shape possible.

Deep tissue massage will have to be regular in the most severe cases but for those who are just experiencing a minor strain, a few sessions of deep tissue massage or sports massage can show great results and almost immediate relief when it comes to pain. By adding deep tissue massage in your routine you can avoid future side effects that come with such an accident: such as calf weakness, fatigue, poor balance, decreased fitness, etc.

Pain Relief Massage For Pain And Discomfort That Originate From Sternocleidomastoid Muscle

The sternocleidomastoid muscle, known as the sternomastoid is a paired muscle and one of the largest muscles that resides in the layers of the side of the neck. Its most important role is the flexion of the neck and the rotation of the head. It is formed of the medial head and the lateral head that are separated by a triangular interval, located bellow the middle of the neck.

Sternocleidomastoid Muscle

Sternocleidomastoid Muscle

This muscle functions both as a short range and a long range rotator not to mention the fact that it acts as a flexor of the cervical spine and an upper cervical extensor, so there is a lot involved with this particular area of the body. However, very few people know of its existence and sometimes they are confronted with symptoms that might seem to be something else, when in fact, they are symptoms related to the sternocleidomastoid muscle.

Although the muscle rarely hurts, it can still be affected and also affect your overall life quality. However, when patients do actually feel pain, they were usually involved in an accident. But it’s the other symptoms, which are often more severe, that rush people to the doctor or the massage therapist. The muscle sometimes creates severe headaches and even facial pain. The headaches are called tension headaches and the pain experienced is usually located on the forehead.

Some people might even experience dizziness, brain fog and blurry vision, while others can have symptoms such as pain behind their ears or even hearing loss. Rarely, this particular muscle could be linked to vertigo, pain in the cheek and molar teeth, sinus symptoms and even nausea or loss of appetite. Some people may even experience itching in their ears, an itch they cannot scratch and feels quite persistent sometimes. Along with itchiness they may also experience a crackling sound.

The causes for pain or other symptoms in the sternocleidomastoid muscle are numerous and usually they involve bad posture or accidents. For example overhead activities such as painting a wall or even swimming may cause pain or stress this muscle. Other causes are poor posture like the forward head posture or sleeping with a pillow that is too high may be causing damage to your muscle. Even working at a computer, especially a laptop, for too long will put a great amount of stress on the muscle.

Other activities that are putting a lot of stress on the sternocleidomastoid muscle are horse riding, wearing tight clothing around the neck, reading in bed, having the head turned to the side for too long, etc. Whiplash is another reason why people might discover they have symptoms relating the sternocleidomastoid muscle so if you were in an accident recently, you will need to make sure that everything is healed properly.

Even more, some of the symptoms related to the sternocleidomastoid muscle can imitate sinus problems, for example people may experience a runny nose, a sinus congestion or headaches. People can go for ages thinking they have problems with their sinuses when in fact, it’s their sternocleidomastoid muscle trigger points acting up. The muscle is also used for breathing so people might find it hard to breathe deeply if it is affected.

There are a few ways of treatment that will help you get rid of these symptoms along with the pain you might experience. First of all, people are usually prescribed anti-inflammatory medication for their pain; mild anti-inflammatory medication is not a cause of concern but when the pain is extreme, some people might even go for pain killers, which may give them an addiction that is very hard to overcome.

This is why more natural methods such as exercise, yoga or massage are best when it comes to such issues because people will be able to get rid of their symptoms easily. When you think of the term Massage, any type of massage like remedial massage, sports massage or deep tissue massage will do as long as the professional therapist has enough knowledge and expertise.

Light exercise for maintaining the health of your muscles and tendons is a must and patients need to make sure that they avoid the triggers that can cause their health problems such as awkward head postures. Along with exercise, yoga can be an excellent way to relax, especially if your muscles are tensed due to stress. The same applies for massage, which can be used alone or in combination with all of the above for better results.

After a few massage sessions most people see a lot of improvement and if you also choose to incorporate some relaxation massage in your remedial massage routine you will see amazing results when it comes to the anxiety or stress you were experiencing. Massage is a great way to avoid getting too stressed and a good way to manage your overall health. For the sternocleidomastoid muscle, massage can help patients get rid of pain and especially cure the debilitating headaches that might cause them a great deal of distress along with other of the nasty symptoms mentioned above.

If you suspect your pain and discomfort symptom might be coming from your sternocleidomastoid muscle, a remedial massage Gold Coast offers may be able to help. Click and visit www.remedialmassage-goldcoast.com.au to see what they can do for you.

Massage Therapy For Gastrocnemius Muscle Issues

The gastrocnemius muscle is one of the biggest muscles in the human body, not to mention the fact that it is one of the most used muscles since it’s engaged in all leg movement. The muscle is located in the back of the lower leg with ramifications just above the knee and to the heel and along with the soleus muscle it completes the calf muscle.

This particular muscle is primarily involved in fast walking, running and other types of fast movements such as jumping but can be slightly engaged in other activities that imply moving the lower part of the body.

The muscle is one of the most common injured muscles and the pain that is felt in this area may be different every time depending on the causes. The following part describes the numerous types of pain that occur during calf injuries.

Calf cramps are very common and they feel like a sharp and very intense pain in the calf that starts after heavy physical activity or often in the middle of your sleep with unknown reason. They mostly occur in athletes and older people but they are common among young people who start exercising without proper conditioning or when using bad posture when exercising. These cramps can come and go and can even start at night after an exhausting day.

People can easily relieve pain with massage and stretching or even applying heat on their tight muscles to relax them. When you want to see a massage therapist for gastrocnemius muscle issue, you need to choose a remedial massage therapist, sports massage therapist or deep tissue massage therapist. Just make sure you will not pick an underqualified massage person who just keeps rubbing your skin and wastes your time.

A proper therapeutic massage therapist will target medial head of gastrocnemius muscle because that’s where a calf cramp usually happens.

When it comes to the gastrocnemius muscle, another pain that can be common is due to inflamed/torn tendons and/or muscles. This can be quite intense and often people relieve it by taking a few anti-inflammatory pills along with applying ice on the affected area. People should also rest for a couple of days and stop any physical activity they might be doing. Gradually, once the pain is relieved, you can easily stretch the leg and start including light exercise in your daily routine.

Those who suddenly feel pain after an intense activity might also have an inflamed or a torn tendon or muscle. In this case supportive shoes, massage and pain medication is needed, especially if the patient feels a sharp pain that doesn’t lessen within hours. The muscle will take more time to heal and your doctor might prescribe other types of therapy for long term care.

Immediate treatment for an injury in the gastrocnemius muscle includes rest, using ice and elevating the leg. Also, it can help if the person’s affected area is wrapped in a manner that compresses the muscle; this will help heal but also relieve some of the pain. Usually the person will have to rest for a couple of days or until complete recovery before going back to their usual activities, otherwise they risk having another accident that can be even worse.

Stretching exercises are also known to be a great method to relieve pain after an accident so a moderate amount of stretching with low effort should be part of the post-accident routine. The gastrocnemius muscle can be easily stretched by pulling the foot with the toes up several times.

An excellent way to get rid of pain and make sure that you avoid any accidents is to visit a clinical or therapeutic massage therapist regularly. This will also relax the muscles after a hard day of training so if your day to day routine includes hard physical activity or manual labour, that might be exactly what you need to keep away from accidents and pain.

Some people might have a dull pain for years before doing something about it and remedial massage is an excellent opportunity to get rid of it without having to take medication or by using other invasive methods. If the pain is caused directly by the muscle and not by a blood clot or other severe reasons, then you are ok to see a remedial massage therapist.

You will surely feel the difference one session after the other, especially if you have been experiencing a lot of pain lately. And, if you simply want to make sure that you avoid the risk of accidents, remedial massage can also be an excellent opportunity to improve your posture, to obtain a shorter recovery time and obtain overall better results.

A treatment suitable for your leg problem is available in the form of remedial massage, sports massage and deep tissue massage on the Gold Coast.

Supraspinatus Issue – Solution By A Therapeutic Massage In Gold Coast

The supraspinatus muscle is a muscle located on the top of each shoulder blade. One of the four rotator cuff muscles, this particular muscle helps initiate the abduction motion of the shoulder. Extensively, the supraspinatus muscle is the first muscle engaged when moving the hand away on the side of the body.

Supraspinatus Muscle

Supraspinatus Muscle – Right

Due to its position and the high intensity activity in the area the muscle is extremely susceptible to injury, therefore athletes and people who have to do a lot of physical activity should be careful when it comes to this particular area of the body. Certain activities can put a strain on the shoulder and they should be avoided or at least done in a way which keeps the exhaustion to a minimum.

When it comes to injuring the supraspinatus muscle, some activities may pose a higher risk than others. For example, activities such as: lifting or carrying heavy objects or even swimming for a longer time. It is estimated that around 25 % of those who are over 50 years old and about 20% of those who are over 20 years of age suffer injuries in this particular area of their body.

The common symptoms of an injured supraspinatus muscle are noticeable and people should address them immediately. Those who experience pain during night-time or while resting along with pain, and soreness when lifting certain objects or even just lifting the arm. Usually in these cases, people will also experience weakness and a weird sensation whenever they are moving their shoulder; this particular sensation is called crepitus and usually feels like a sort of cracking that comes from within the shoulder or under the skin.

Another type of injury that can cause the tear of the supraspinatus muscle is an accident such as falling or due to exhaustion and overuse. Usually the immediate symptoms are weakness and a lot of pain but sometimes people might not experience pain at all and could go around for years with an injury in their shoulder.

However, even those who don’t experience pain at first could eventually develop painful symptom and while it should start off mild, it will gradually become more severe. Without proper care, the pain will not go away on its own and people will eventually start taking anti-inflammatory or over the counter pain killers. But most patients usually get to a stage where this type of medication is no longer sufficient to alleviate their pain and seek stronger treatments.

However, treated in time, this particular injury will not become as severe and even when the injury is due to overuse, people will only experience light weakness. In order to treat it in time, people should seek help as soon as they notice symptoms.

An interesting fact is that massage therapists and chiropractors are often those who have this particular muscle overused due to the repeated motions they have to perform with their arms; these movements frequently engage this particular muscle so they are one of the main categories of people who suffer from pain due to their supraspinatus muscle.

There are cases in which this muscle can become weak or injured without any particular reason; sometimes those who do a lot of physical effort without proper safety measures might not even realize that they are putting a lot of pressure on this muscle, which is generally undeveloped for the average person.

Those who find themselves with a similar issue should first contact their physician and make sure that the pain isn’t caused by some other factors. If the muscle weakness, wear and tear or injury is the cause for their pain, then their doctor may suggest they should contact a massage therapist and even take medicine if the pain is too severe.

Due to its wide application in so many issues, remedial massage remains one of the best ways to naturally heal injuries in tendons and muscles as well as remove scar tissue and other residue that might accumulate. Remedial massage is a great treatment with any age or gender and it’s a great alternative to conventional pain medicine and surgery.

A massage therapist can help alleviate pain to a certain degree even from the first couple of sessions. This is an extremely good alternative for those who don’t want or can’t take pain medication. After regular remedial massage therapy, people should feel much better and generally it takes a few months to a year of regular massage to completely heal the muscle depending on various factors such as the scar tissue accumulated, the severity of their injury, the natural healing potential of the body, etc.

The techniques used are usually combining several types of massage such as deep tissue massage, sports massage, remedial massage, etc. Patients who undergo these clinical massage therapies are most of the time satisfied with their results and often choose this particular procedure for its non-invasive approach.

Pain Relief Massage For Issues With Levator Scapulae Muscle

The levator scapulae muscle is situated on the side and back region of the neck and it’s one of the muscles that get strained the most. The muscle is linked with the cervical vertebrae one to four and the dorsal tubercles. The name of the muscle comes from the Latin word levator, which means to lift. The use of this muscle is to lift the scapula as it is embedded into the vertebral border.

Levator scapulae

Levator scapulae – Back view

For example, when you shrug your shoulders, you engage this particular part of your body. It is also used when a person flexes their neck to one side or while moving in any direction from the shoulder joint. It is obvious that this particular muscle is one of those that we use frequently so it is prone to more mechanical damage due to its location and our sedentary modern life.

Although it does seem like a small muscle, damaging or straining it can cause serious effects to one’s body, especially when it comes to the more subtle movements and it can even interfere with easy day to day activities.

People who have pain related to this particular muscle usually have noticeable physical impairment that can even grow more severe if the pain is not treated in a short time. Usually their head appears to have limited movement and most of the time it seems glued into a certain position. Also, their movements are very slow and when they turn they actually turn their whole body because they are unable to turn their neck.

Also, damage can occur in the eyes because people can strain them to make up for the lack of movement in the neck. All these severe effects can put a strain on one’s body and even interfere with their ability to focus on their job or in school. This is why it is extremely important to find the cause of a strained levator scapulae muscle so that the person experiencing these issues find pain relief as soon as possible.

There are two important trigger points that are related to the Levator Scapulae muscle: the first trigger point is just above the superior angle of the scapula and the second is in the midportion of the muscle. These trigger points can be activated and become quite uncomfortable from various activities or accidents you may have.

For instance, whiplash from an automobile accident can cause one of these trigger points to be activated and lead to a great deal of pain. But the most common ways in which a trigger point can be activated are usually maintaining a bad posture or experiencing stress.

Sleeping on your stomach may seem comfortable, but it’s not a perfect way to relax since it can activate the trigger points mentioned above. Those who sleep with their head turned to one side can end up with a lot of discomfort that might prolong for days or even weeks.

Another way to engage these trigger points is to maintain a bad posture while working such as the common head forward posture in which a person usually lowers their head and leans forward while working . Usually those who work in an office and use a computer are more prone to activating these trigger point; even more, those who are holding a phone between their shoulder and ear or carrying heavy bags on just one shoulder will also damage their muscle sooner or later.

When it comes to stress it seems that emotional and mental stress play a major role in the wellbeing of your neck and back muscles. Stress causes tension in these exact muscles so they can activate back problems without any physical problem to begin with.

Among those who have issues with their levator scapulae muscle there are people who have very distinct symptoms. For example, some people experience shortness of breath and can even develop panic attacks due to it along with a feeling of pressure on their shoulders.

There are things people should consider when they have pain within their levator scapulae muscle. Usually correcting your posture is the best bet to prevent injuries in that area. Another way to make sure that you avoid injuries and accidents in the future is to relax your tense muscles by going regularly to Pain Relief Massage sessions such as remedial massage, sports massage and deep tissue massage. These clinical massage sessions can help by relieving pain and you have better odds at getting rid of the pain than by using medication.

Those who don’t want to take pain killers can simply use some over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication in combination with Pain Relief massage. You will feel better within the first few sessions and having massage therapy as part of your regular routine prevents muscle strains and a lot of related injuries.

Sports Massage Helps Symptoms That Originate From Pectoralis Major Muscle

Pectoralis major is a muscle located at the chest area of the human body. Also known as the pectoral muscle, this particular area of the body is quite prone to injuries and strains. The muscle has the shape of thin triangle and it can be referred commonly as pecs. The exact location of the pectoralis major muscle can be described as the following: it starts from the anterior surface of the sternal, half of the clavicle and goes down to the sixth or seventh rib.

Right Pectoralis Major Muscle

Right Pectoralis Major Muscle

The muscle is engaged during forward swinging motions of the arm and it contracts in three different ways: the upper clavicular part is used for the flexion of the arm and shoulder, the lower part engages to depress the shoulder girdle and the full contraction which produces the adduction and rotation of the upper arm and shoulder as well as pulling the arm towards the body.

There are certain trigger points in the pectoralis major muscle that can produce a great deal of pain. The problem with the pain experienced by people is the fact that it is a very particular pain that can sometimes be associated with a heart attack or angina pectoris and people often panic about a severe underlying issue for their pain. The pain is usually experienced in the chest and the front of the shoulder; in fewer cases people can also experience it down the inside of the arm and on their elbow.

Clients who have activated their pectoralis major trigger points will usually experience various degrees of pain from a slight tingle in the muscle and arm to excruciating and debilitating pain. Except for the pain that is similar to cardiac arrest, there are several other types of pain that people might experience after an accident or injury involving their pectoralis major muscle. One type of pain that can be confusing is pain in the shoulder that goes down to the ring and pinky finger of the hand.

This type of pain radiates from the muscle and can cause a great deal of distress, especially for those who do manual work or work involving lifting heavy weights. Another type of pain, very common among those who have postural problems is a pain that radiates both from the mid back region and the shoulder along with breast and nipple sensitivity in some cases.

Other types of pain related to the pectoralis major muscle are: a feeling of constriction in the chest, intermittent pain that activates when using the upper arms, and, in some cases, an impaired lymphatic drainage that might cause swelling.

When it comes to posture, there are some postures that might activate the trigger points and those who are more prone to injuries and accidents usually adopt these postures either during workout or while sitting or walking. Head forward and round shoulders is risky and can cause a great deal of pain if it is adopted for a long term. If you like gym work and weight lifting, some people have accidents when they try to lift with their arms away from their body, positioned in the front.

Also, if you had an accident involving this particular muscle before, you should avoid postural distortion or any of the activities that may put a strain on it, because it can come back more severe than it was. A significant amount of people also experience pain in the pectoralis major muscle when they have panic attacks or are prone to stress; these two culprits can trigger pain within the muscle by flexing it in an unnatural position for long periods of time.

Those who do intense training and want to increase the size of their pectoralis major muscle for aesthetical reasons should remember a few postures that will help them develop a healthy look. Some exercises are better than the others and therapists recommend chin ups, front lateral pull downs, barbell pullover and cable crossover to be the best ways to enhance your pectoralis major muscle.

For pain relief of symptoms that come from pectoralis major muscles, people have a few options ranging from natural methods such as sports massage, yoga or light exercise to pain killers and even surgery if scar tissue has formed. When it comes to sports massage and exercise, just a few days a week can do wonders, especially for those who have bad posture.

People who are experiencing excruciating pain will see major improvement even from their first session of sports massage. Sports massage is a great way for athletes not only to prevent any injuries and accidents but also to make sure that they increase the strength of their muscle and also their endurance. Sports massage is also a good way to minimize the effects of soreness after high intensity trainings.

Deep Tissue Massage Therapy Helps Pain That Originates From Quadratus Lumborum Muscle

Quadratus lumborum muscle is a muscle that stretches from the hip to the upper four lumbar vertebrae and the 12th rib; one of the roles of this muscle is to help people keep their upright position and what most people don’t know about it is the fact that it is often the culprit for lower back pain.

Unfortunately, a pair of quadratus lumborum muscles being one of core muscles of the body, it is making it more prone to strains or accidents. If you are experiencing any type of lower back pain it doesn’t hurt to have this area checked by a remedial massage therapist or deep tissue massage therapist.

Quadratus Lumborum

Quadratus Lumborum

Some of the symptoms that might indicate that you have a strained quadratus lumborum muscle are the following:

Restriction of motion in the lower back – some people might experience stiffness in their lower back area when the muscles are pulled or strained. This can interfere with their overall wellbeing because it can keep them from doing usual daily activities.

Lower back pain – one of the symptoms that indicate a problem in the lower back area is, of course, the lower back pain which is felt like a sharp pain, even when you don’t do strenuous physical activity. The pain can be extremely hard to tolerate and you might need to take pain killers or even muscle relaxants to be able to tolerate it. Some people even have to get an injection in their back to be able to breathe properly as even taking deep breaths can cause this muscle to hurt.

Pain on the side – usually, when you pull this particular muscle you will feel the pain on only one side of your body, which often radiates to the hip as well. The pain can also be present during resting and people can be in most cases unable to walk for a day or two.

Some of the causes that lead to quadratus lumborum muscle strains are usually related to lifestyle choices, bad posture or accidents.

When it comes to lifestyle, this particular muscle can get weaker if you sit all day at the office, for example. Due to lack of exercise they are more prone to accidents. Also, not working your upper body and lower body makes people more prone to this type of accident.

Mechanical factors that lead to lower back pain can be in the form of accidents or even defects at birth, such as having one leg shorter. Usual daily activities, if not performed correctly, can put a strain on the lower back. Gardening and exercising on certain surfaces might be factors that will lead to this type of pain. Also, this particular muscle gets easily strained while lifting heavy objects or putting on socks or shoes while standing.

Other symptoms that are common and might even frighten a person when he or she has problems with their lower back are the spasms. Sometimes when people tend to have muscles cramp problem, they might also experience spasms.

Symptoms that might worry people are usually swelling and heat; heat is usually due to blood flow in the problematic area and it can also come with a bit of redness. However, people shouldn’t be worried as it’s usually a common sign.

Swelling should be a symptom that may indicate a more serious strain and it should definitely be treated immediately with cold patches and you should be immobilized to prevent any other further injury.

Other people might experience weakness along with the stiffness which can last for a long period of time even after the pain is gone and the patient can resume normal movement. Those who experience weakness even after a long time has passed from their injury should start having a regular exercise program and concentrate on getting a massage therapy regularly. This way you can increase the muscle strength on that side of the body while making sure that no accidents are going to take place.

Deep Tissue Massage is probably one of the best ways you can make sure that you avoid any type of accidents when it comes to the quadratus lumborum muscle and it’s a great way to relax the muscle and alleviate pain if you suddenly find yourself in one of the situations above.

Massage Therapy For Pain That Originates From Trapezius Muscle

The trapezius muscle is attached to the base of the skull, at the back of the neck and over the upper shoulders. It also goes down the upper back to the mid back which makes it one of the most sensible muscles in your body as it might get sore. When a person is stressed, when they have bad posture during work or during sleep, or when they are overworked, they will experience a wide range of symptoms that include pain or stiffness.

Trapezius Muscle

Trapezius Muscle

When it comes to stress, the trapezius muscle can even have symptoms of a burning sensation, which can make things difficult when sitting down or bending over. Stress itself is a major reason for back and neck pain and it can affect the life quality of those who experience it. Fortunately, stress related pain can be easily alleviated with massage and exercise.

The types of massage used for trapezius muscles vary according to patient and how severe the pain is. The classic symptoms are usually shoulders ache combined with a neck ache and sometimes stiffness. At its most severe point trapezius muscle pain can even lead to severe headaches. The headaches are usually located at the temples, behind the eyes and at the base of your skull. Sometimes people think they have other problems that might affect them and completely overlook trapezius muscle issues.

The following section will explain some of the common causes that can lead to trapezius muscle problems. These causes should be corrected as soon as possible, otherwise people might experience long term problems or even worsening symptoms.

Besides stress one of the leading causes for trapezius muscle pain is general posture, like holding your head forward while working at a desk. You can improve your posture by trying to exercise every hour and by getting up from your desk so that your muscles can have some relief.

Having a regular massage, at least once a month will certainly improve your condition. Massage also works great for trapezius muscle pain that has stress as a primary cause. The pain can be alleviated and the person can relax after a stressful day at work as it works both physically and emotionally on a person’s wellbeing.

Women who experience trapezius muscle pain should make sure that their bras are well fitted and that the bra straps are not too tight. Also, make sure that you avoid wearing bags that are too big and heavy on just one shoulder. However, backpacks although they might seem like they make it easier for your trapezius muscle pain and posture, can have a huge impact if they are too heavy.

Women who have recently given birth might also experience trapezius muscle pain especially if they adopt bad posture while breastfeeding their babies. Also, the weight of their breasts may increase and pull the trapezius muscle leading to more back pain. A well fitted bra and massage might help ease the pain or even completely cure it.

When it comes to sleeping, you might think that it helps your back by relaxing your whole body. However, it’s all in the posture and a night of sleeping in a bad position might lead to dramatic morning with pain in your upper back. For example, those who choose to sleep on their stomach will usually have to turn their head to one side or the other; this can be really bad for your posture because it puts pressure on the muscles.

Actually even keeping your head turned for prolonged periods of time, either for work or for your hobby, can cause acute neck or shoulder pain. Change your position frequently and make sure that you do some exercise and go to a massage therapist from time to time in order to relax the muscles and improve your condition and wellbeing.

Another way to hurt your trapezius muscle is to bend forward while working, this is common with artisans, painters, knitters, etc. However, writers and those who work at a computer are not saved from pain as having a high keyboard or having no rest for your arms can keep your muscles tight thorough the day. Even artists who play an instrument will find that their neck is stiff sometimes, especially if it involves bending and sitting in an awkward position.

Trapezius muscle pain doesn’t have to concern you, it cannot lead to anything too serious but pain is the thing that usually rushes people to a medical doctor, who can’t really do anything but prescribe pain killers. For long term effect, exercise and having a remedial massage is the best thing you can do when you have tight muscles. Just a few massage sessions per month and exercising for 15 to 30 minutes daily is going to solve a major part of your problem.

If you would like to try a deep tissue massage on the Gold Coast to relieve your Trapezius muscle problem, click and visit www.remedialmassage-goldcoast.com.au and see what they can do for you. Remedial massage, sports massage and deep tissue massage are offered for pain relief purpose.

Remedial Massage Helps Symptoms Of Spondylolisthesis

Before looking at any form of treatment or ailment for the condition, we should first understand what it means and what repercussions it could have if left untreated.

The disease was first mentioned more than 200 years ago in 1782 by a Belgian obstetrician while the term spondylolisthesis was first used in 1854.

Spondylolisthesis simply means a forward displacement of a vertebra. It is often associated with the fifth lumbar vertebra while the most common causes are a break or a fracture. Spondylolisthesis is most often seen in the lumbar spine and should not be confused with spondylolysis which is a birth defect or a fracture of the pars interarticularis of the vertebral arch. Spondylolysis is however tied to spondilolisthesis as it is by far the most common cause of it.

Spondylolisthesis

Spondylolisthesis

While the term spondilolisthesis may not be that popular, some people may have heard of the Hangman’s Fracture. It is a specific form of spondilolisthesis where fractures in the C2 vertebra’s spedicles cause it to slip anteriorly relative to the C3 vertebra.

Spondylolisthesis often comes with a series of symptoms which can help those who are afflicted or those close to them to easily identify their problem and seek professional medical attention.

Among symptoms of spondylolisthesis you will find that one of the most common ones is the stiffening of certain body parts due to the change in posture. Stiffness most commonly appears in the back and the hamstrings but can also be seen in other sensitive areas. Some people will also have a forward leaning posture as they try to adapt to the pain or will present a different walking pattern.

Spondylolisthesis

Spondylolisthesis

Other symptoms include atrophied gluteal muscles, lower back pain as well as shooting pain that goes from the buttocks to the thigh or lower leg via the sciatic nerve. Less severe but just as frequent symptoms include tingling and numbness. Pain from spondylolisthesis is highly intensified if the patient coughs or sneezes, so staying healthy can actually be a good way of not aggravating what is already a serious back condition.

While all motions are made more difficult with this condition, things like sitting down or standing up can be particularly taxing.

Treatment for spondylolisthesis comes in two forms, depending on the severity of the case. The first is a combination of medication and physical therapy while the second form is reserved for serious cases and involves surgery.

Regardless, however, of the seriousness of spondylolisthesis, you should always remember that remedial massage is one of the key methods of treating or managing this uncomfortable condition. Remedial massage bases its techniques on centuries of experience and has had a major influence on the careers of numerous athletes or on the general health or physical recovery of people who suffer from a huge variation of illnesses similar to spondylolisthesis.

While remedial massage can’t necessarily cure spondylolisthesis, it does prove to be a huge help in managing the problem. It can be a great method to help relieve discomfort caused by spasms and muscle tension. Through the careful use of pressure and friction, remedial massage can also help release tension in the ligaments, tendons and muscles of the lower back.

One thing you might also consider doing before seeking out remedial massage specialists is a full medical checkup. While remedial massage is a scientific approach that is based on hundreds of years of experience, you should play it safe and get the go-ahead from you physician before undergoing any form of treatment and make sure there are no underlying issues that can be aggravated.

You should also make sure you find some good references for you remedial massage therapist as solid experience and a good reputation are a must if you want fast, long lasting effects for you condition.

You might also find that remedial massage will help with more than your spondylolisthesis problems if you keep visiting regularly. It is commonly used to help with insomnia, muscle pain, postural problems or stress relief. The best part of remedial massage is that it is a good way to avoid extra medication, thus helping your stomach and liver heal quicker after an operation for example.

If you combine your remedial massage sessions with carefully guided physical activity and constant supervision from your doctor, you will be able to keep your spondylolisthesis problems under control without the need for a surgical intervention. You will also enjoy a healthier lifestyle, a deeper more relaxed sleep, less pain in day-to-day activities and quite possibly a surge of energy due to your overall improved condition.

Clinical Massage For Myofascial Pain Syndrome – Remedial Massage

Myofascial pain syndrome also referred to as MPS is a syndrome that is characterized by chronic pain in the fascial and muscle area. It can be caused by numerous factors such as trigger points or fascial constrictions.

While they may sound conspicuous, trigger points have a series of characteristics that make them easy to recognize. They include a focal point of tenderness, an increase in pain when the trigger point is touched or when even a small degree of pressure is applied.

Other symptoms include tension or even hardening of the muscle during palpation of the trigger point as well as a limited amount of motion when the trigger point is under any amount of pressure for more than 5 seconds. The areas that are usually trigger points can also show signs of weakness when pain isn’t present.

The causes of myofascial pain syndrome are not well documented, with several diseases or other disturbances being the main cause of this affliction. Some of the most common are systematic diseases like connective tissue disease for example. Other factors that can cause the onset of Myofascial pain syndrome are bad posture and stress as well as emotional imbalances can also play a big role in the appearance of MPS.

Symptoms of myofascial pain syndrome are sometimes difficult to find as pain can occur on any clearly distinct and isolated part of the body with any muscle fascia being under threat. This leads to sometimes varying symptoms that can be difficult to spot.

The most common type of pain associated with myofascial pain syndrome is of a deep yet mild kind, however, depending on what part of your body the condition is located in, the pain can vary from ignorable to excruciating.

While there generally aren’t any visible symptoms, some knots can be seen or felt beneath the skin in more serious cases. Another symptom of MPS is that the pain associated with the condition doesn’t go away with a traditional cure of ice, heat or simply resting, and continues even intensifying in some cases.

When it comes to curing myofascial pain syndrome, the most often seen approach is with the help of medication. This can be an effective method of treating the condition; however, drugs can always come with side effects and even when they don’t, when taken over a longer period of time they will take their toll on the digestive system. The most commonly prescribed drugs for MPS are anti-depressants, anticonvulsants and muscle relaxants.

The best way of curing myofascial pain syndrome, however, is with the help of clinical massage called remedial massage. This massage based approach focuses on locating and releasing pressure in trigger points with the help of time tested techniques that have evolved naturally over the centuries.

The approach is ideal for quick pain relief and can actually get rid of trigger point altogether if coupled with some light stretching exercises. Using remedial massage and stretching can help the patient regain his flexibility and motor coordination.

Once you have successfully got rid of trigger points and the intense pain associated with them, you can now focus on working towards long-term health of your muscular system. This involves a carefully coordinated set of muscle strengthening exercises coupled with remedial massage in order to reduce swelling and keep your entire body relaxed, well rested and recuperated.

Before going to see a remedial massage specialist, make sure you check in with your physician and evaluate your general health so that there won’t be any problems with underlying issues. Once you get the go-ahead from your doctor, try to locate an experienced remedial massage professional that has worked with MPS patients before.

Once you have made up your mind on which remedial massage specialist you’re going to see, make sure you take things slow and don’t rush your visits. It’s important to talk to your massage specialist and give him feedback on any pain you may be experiencing during your visits.

You will find that with the help of remedial massage, you will also improve other general health aspects such as fitness levels, energy levels throughout the day and even increase the quality of your sleep. If you are an active person, you will find that remedial massages will help your body recuperate faster and with little or no residual muscle pain.

When all is said and done, you will also have avoided taking powerful drugs or even anesthetic injections, which is also a rather dangerous approach to getting over myofascial pain syndrome. You may even save some money along the way and increase your life quality significantly by employing the time tested techniques of remedial massage.

Postural Deviation And Remedial Massage

Postural deviation is a condition that unfortunately is not taken seriously and it often gets worse leading to other problems. One of the reasons some might have back pain or reduced strength in some areas of the body can be postural deviation. Due to the structure of the soft tissue, postural deviation occurs but fortunately it can be very easily corrected with remedial massage. Before trying postural corrections with surgery or other extreme measures, people should try and use massage for their pain or their postural deviation.

Head forward, round shoulder

Head forward, round shoulder

Postural deviation can occur without any pain or significant symptoms but it may affect people’s life without them even knowing it. Theoretically our skeleton is designed to support our body and enable our movement while minimizing the effects of gravity, but with postural deviations that might become a problem and some deviations might occur:

We start putting the weight on one leg more than on the other, we start dragging our feet, we develop a tendency to walk different which may affect the health of our feet and legs, etc. At first, people might not notice the effects but as the time passes, they will begin to get different aches and pains that can even ruin their lives.

Back pain, shoulder pain, hip and leg pain are some of the most common types of pain and they are pretty hard to ignore. Once they address these issues people realize that everything in their body is not aligned as it should be but there is no apparent cause for the injuries.

With remedial massage, people can correct both the pain that occurs due to postural deviation and the postural deviation itself. The pain is easily alleviated in a few sessions and for their postural deviation patients will need to relearn to stand and walk so that they make sure that nothing has more impact on a certain part of their body.

Sometimes some muscles will work harder than others, some joints have more strength than others and all these have to be identified and corrected before they do any more damage.

Remedial massage has a great deal of benefits that can help those who undergo it get over some of their disabilities. Due to the nature of the way our body is constructed, it usually tries to compensate for the areas that are weakened or injured. Sometimes the compensating factor still remains after the area has been healed leading to postural deviations.

For example, if somebody were to have an accident and break their ankle, for the most part of their healing process the body would put more pressure on the other leg. However, after the ankle has been healed the person maintains more pressure on the same leg leading to the other leg being weakened. This can lead to a wide range of postural problems that, fortunately, can be rehabilitated by remedial massage and a few postural correction techniques.

Remedial massage also improves the recovery time of the injury as well as preventing postural deviation in areas that are prone to this type of occurrence. The massage techniques used with remedial massage will also improve the blood flow which prevents tightness and improves the range of motions.

When it comes to desk jobs, there’s another chapter of postural deviations, and remedial massage can easily help correct those by improving the health of the shoulder, upper back and neck. There are a few techniques that work really well in those areas, as they allow proper healing while offering a more effective type of treatment.

Some of the techniques are: the trigger point technique, myofascial technique, muscle energy technique, kneading, active and passive stretching. Remedial massage will also help release muscular spasms and muscle pain as well as adhesions in the muscle tissue, which can cause even more pain and trouble.

Even if adhesions have occurred for a very long time, remedial massage is able to allow the body to eliminate them even if they are severe. Another benefit of remedial massage is the fact that it works well with manipulation treatment and eases any type of joint pain that might occur from postural deviations.

The massage therapist will create a treatment plan that works well with your specific condition. Actually, this is one of the main benefits of this type of treatment, the fact that you are thoroughly examined and a treatment is created according to your needs and the underlying issue or issues you might have. Fortunately, it doesn’t take long for remedial massage to show its effects, sometimes it needs a few regular sessions, other times it relieves pain even from the first session.

No matter what sport the athlete is doing; sports massage can help them increase their strength, stamina, and even speed.

Some might ask what sports massage is and how it works. First of all, sports massage is very much connected with specialties such as physiology and anatomy, especially the ones dealing with the muscular and skeletal system.

Another problem they might have is tension that could accumulate in their muscles. If the massage is applied by a skilful professional it can be a very effective therapy and a great way to improve a person’s circulation, relax muscles and even correct certain muscle imbalances.

Of course, getting sports massage could be risky for some people, especially those who suffer from chronic diseases.

If you suffer from a chronic condition you should always check with your medical doctor and see if it’s ok for you to try sports massage.

When it comes to sports massage, there are a few types of approaches your therapist can use depending on your problem. These are characterized by certain strokes that can be used such as effleurage, petrissage or friction.

Effleurage can be defined as a series of stroking movements that are performed with the whole palm and the fingers. The therapist applies pressure in a certain rhythm and builds up the pressure and stretching as they go. It is a very relaxing and very effective procedure.

Petrissage is a sort of kneading technique that is used to stretch the muscle, relax it and mobilize fluids. It goes very deep within the muscle and works well on the fibres. The massage done with this technique will be very deep and very thorough.

Lastly, the friction is used for massage that is meant to break down lesions and even separate muscle fibres. It is used for those who have scar tissue accumulated from recent injuries. This technique is especially used for athletes who are recovering after a certain injury or issue.

Other sports massage methods include vibration, shaking and even compression, all used depending on the aim of the therapist.

Sports massage can be performed before exercising, afterwards or during recovery. Some techniques are used as a warm up so that they increase the blood flow of the athlete while others will aid in the patients recovery and even increase flexibility or improve strength. Of course, your massage therapist knows best when it comes to the type of massage they need to perform and you are advised to try more than one approach and see which one works for you.

Also the time your body needs to gain the benefits of a sports massage can be different from other athletes so you need to create a program that works best for you. Even if you don’t want to increase your performance, sometimes pre-event massage can do a great deal for an athlete so you can at least try it a few times.

Massage In Ancient Greece And Rome 2

Just as the atomists, he believed that the body was created from small atoms that moved throughout the body and irregularities in their movements would create diseases. To restore that balance, he used massage or vibrations on the patients. Due to the popularity and great results of his practice, many other physicians followed his doctrine.

Another famous physician in Rome was Claudius Galenus and he was a follower of Hippocrates doctrine in medicine. He revolutionized medicine because he wrote many works on the anatomy of the body but also developed scientific investigation. Not very popular at the time, dissection was his main tool in gaining more knowledge on the body.

Another important figure in ancient Roman medicine was Aulus Cornelius Celsus who was following the advice of Hippocrates and wrote about various methods to heal the body through different techniques such as massage. He wrote De Medicina which was a series of texts that created a great foundation for medicine today and influenced medicine in the Middle Ages, when the text was rediscovered and printed.

Right until the fall of Rome, massage therapy was an important tool in the hands of physicians, healing many people and promoting a healthy life.

Even if massage was common in many cultures whose doctrines might seem, at least at first glance, different, one thing it had in common was the fact that it promoted a healthy body and it was the key to a balanced life.

Without massage many people could have died or at least suffered a lot more, so without any other medical knowledge the ancient world managed to keep people happy with the help of massage, in all its forms, whether it was Chinese, Japanese or based on the principles of Greek physicians.

Massage In Ancient Greece And Rome

Massage was widely used in Greece and Rome and it was mostly used by Hippocrates who considered it to be an art which should be familiar to any physician. However, massage was not used only by Hippocrates, even before him, athletes in Greece were massaged before their competitions and massage itself was considered, along with regular exercise, an important part of a healthy life.

Hippocrates considered that one should train many years before having proficiency and only then good results could be seen. There were certain prescriptions to massage as it was a way to act on muscles and organs. Hippocrates believed that massage was able either to stiffen muscles that were too relaxed or relax those that were too rigid.

Another important discovery Socrates made that really influenced this therapy in the western world was considering massage an exercise technique or a complementary technique that would aid people. This influenced sports massage and sports medicine to improve care for those who practiced various activities.

Hippocrates’ approach was very different from the Eastern world as he saw massage as a scientific art avoiding the spiritual approach. This led him to create treaties where he would outline the guidelines for a good massage. His discoveries were very much like those in the Eastern world as he wrote about various results massage had on the body.

The Greek culture influenced the Roman culture and also brought massage therapy into Roman medicine. One of those who popularized massage in ancient Rome was Asclepiades of Bithynia, a Greek physician who started his practice in Rome and developed healthy guidelines for diet, exercise, bathing and massage.

Even if this happened miles away, the principles were the same as those in Asian medicine: exercise, bathing and massage were the most important parts of a healthy life. However, the approach he had was considered to be a bit different from that of Hippocrates. His position was very much influenced by atomism, which was a natural philosophy developed in regards to two principles: atom and void.

Massage In Ancient Japan

Massage in Japan was imported from China and the oldest type of massage forms was Anma. Anma used rubbing and pressing techniques that would calm the body representing one of the oldest techniques in the world. Some suspect that Anma came from India; however, its influence on the Japanese culture came from China.

It is believed that Anma was brought by warrior monks from China through Korea. Healers from Japan refined the technique, developed their own type of massage and over the years Anma influenced many other therapeutic massages such as Shiatsu and Swedish massage.

One important aspect of massage in Japan, besides being therapeutic, was the fact that it improved employment opportunities for blind people. At the beginning of the 17th century many blind people were considered perfect for this role due to their enhanced sense of touch, thus giving them more chances to create a better life, especially since they didn’t have many other options.

Shiatsu massage is considered by practitioners as diagnosis and therapy combined, as the trained professionals can “see” with their palms and fingers any abnormalities in the body while performing the massage. Shiatsu uses techniques as pressure, different tempos, strong or soft touches, but the main important thing is having sensitivity in the hand, which is either native or well-trained through years of experience.

Massage In Ancient China

The earliest record of medical treatment in China dates from the Shang Dynasty, 14th-11th century BCE. Here, medicine, just like in Ancient Egypt, was based on a more ritualistic process and was not seen as an area or profession by itself. The recordings were found on bones and tortoise shells and often show various prescriptions that were given to the Shang Royal family. They weren’t seen as illnesses but as curses from the ancestors.

One of the most popular ancient Chinese records that show the importance of massage in the ancient world is the Gong Fou, which gave a lot of information about the use of various herbs but also about exercises and positions that patients needed to adapt a healthier lifestyle.

A complete ancient Chinese medical text that has been a fundamental source for Chinese traditional medicine was the Yellow Emperor’s Inner Canon, a work of two texts that were divided into 81 chapters. The format of this text is very unusual because it has been comprised into question and answers regarding certain medical issues. This “dialogue” is supposedly between the Huangdi and his ministers.

The first part of the text shows the basics of Chinese Medicine and how people are diagnosed. The following parts show how various illnesses could be treated with prescriptions regarding treatment and the measures that needed to be taken for the patient to heal properly.

The book offered some knowledge about massage and what it could do for various illnesses in the body but also gave knowledge about different relations between humans, the environment and the cosmos.

One of the first manipulative therapies in the world was Tui Na, which was a type of massage used to treat both infants and adults.  Tui Na was based on a system that was noticed in animals. People saw that whenever an animal was hurt it would rub itself and with that knowledge a system was created that included hand techniques applied using certain principles of Yin and Yang.

The hand techniques were various and were used to balance and adjust the Chi energies. Along with herbal concoctions the massage techniques were used to treat a wide array of illnesses and some even manipulated the bone structure.

As time passed, massage was used throughout China by reputed Chinese physicians such as Bian Que who managed to popularize it even more.

Massage In Ancient Egypt

The first archeological evidence of massage has been found in ancient civilizations such as those in China, India, Japan, Korea, Egypt, Rome, Greece and Mesopotamia but the oldest depiction of massage was found in a tomb in Egypt.

Presumably from BC 2330, the Tomb of Akmathor showed a picture of men getting their feet and hands massaged. The tomb was also called the tomb of the Physician and it has been subjected to a lot of controversy, with some people believing that the men depicted are getting manicures and pedicures while others believe this is a type of reflexology or massage.

One aspect that makes this picture even more controversial is that it was accompanied by the message “do not let it be painful” to which the answer revealed was “i do it so that you will praise it, King”. Some even consider that this was a sort of surgical procedure but the fact that it should not be painful shows us otherwise. However, most scholars believe that the picture is refers to a sort of therapeutic massage that was performed on the king.

But massage in Ancient Egypt doesn’t end here; it was actually used daily and was performed by healers. Other references can be found in the Kahun Medical Papyrus which is a collection of ancient Egyptian texts that discuss various medical topics.

It dates to 1825 BC and shows different treatments for various illnesses. It comes with many case studies, especially in the area of gynecology. It is divided into 34 sections each dealing with a specific problem; throughout the text you will see massage being referred to as a non-surgical treatment just like herbal medicine and different types of oils.

One depiction of massage, considered a more romantic one was about Marcus Antonius and Cleopatra; it is believed that the former massaged her feet even when they were attending dinner parties.

Other depictions of massage in ancient Egypt were made during the New Kingdom. Apparently in the battle of Kadesh the soldiers of Ramesses II received massage therapy. The battle took place between the Egyptian Empire and the Hittite Empire and it is the earliest battle in recorded history that provides more tactical details.

Most massage records have been found on the papyrus and were later translated. Many medical papyruses contained different case studies about conditions, diagnosis, and whatever the physician needed to prescribe to people in order to keep them healthy. They also gave many details about surgeries that were performed in those times.

Priestesses and priests in temples were trained to become physicians and this also included performing massage therapy as medicine in those times was more ritualistic.

Remedial Massage In Ancient Times

Massage was a big part of medicine in Ancient Times and most of the knowledge we have about various points in the body or anatomy come from this therapeutic approach. Massage therapists wrote books about anatomy and used massage to treat almost all illnesses.

Massage was used by healers in various ways such as applying pressure, using a vibrating motion or even in a targeted manner that would press on certain points of the body. Different strokes were used for different illnesses, which made massage a versatile art that required a lot of training, but could also heal most health problems at the time.

Another type of recovery, not as amazing as an accident recovery but definitely with a huge impact on the person’s life was the story of a person who suffered from a great deal of stress. This is probably a story very similar to most people’s life stories because everybody has a stress source in life and managing it poorly can lead to a lot of health issues.

Stress makes people feel overwhelmed and due to cortisol release it can lead to a lot of hormonal imbalances that can in turn lead to diabetes, obesity and a lot of heart problems. Remedial massage is a great way to make sure that you avoid any stress and the person in this case study went to a remedial massage therapist when her shoulders and neck started to hurt.

Due to the fact that we spend a lot of time in the office and on a chair, but also because we are always tense and tense people tend to keep their muscles in that area stiff, they usually develop pain, sometimes even chronic pain.

Overuse of certain body parts such as the hands for dactylography or the arms for those who are carrying or moving certain object regularly can develop into mild arthritis. This happened to the woman who was also having problems sleeping and maintaining an overall healthy lifestyle.

Stress, pain from the shoulders, neck and arms kept her awake and made her life quality poorer. After a number of remedial massage sessions, the patient started feeling better both emotionally and physically. Soon, the pain started disappearing and her stressful life had a bit of relief. With the lack of pain also came relaxation and better sleep.

Good sleep improved her mental capacity and she was also able to manage her stressful life. With just a few remedial massage sessions she was able to make such a huge recovery when it came to the pain that was disabling her but also improve her life and her emotional state.

All the treatment and recovery cases presented above have been followed by a maintenance treatment that the patient also has to go through to make sure that their affliction doesn’t come back.

After having such issues, remedial massage from time to time combined with a healthy lifestyle will provide a good foundation for a normal, and most importantly, pain free life. Remedial massage is a great way to keep yourself healthy and pain free in a natural way, without the use of medication, but it can also be a pleasant and relaxing experience for some.

Benefit Of Remedial Massage 3

Another common type of affection that many people have and usually experience pain for many years is the frozen shoulder. The frozen shoulder is also called an adhesive capsulitis due to the fact that the connective tissue surrounding the joint in the shoulder becomes inflamed and thus stiff.

This reduces the motion in the arm and causes severe pain for some patients. Due to its severe symptoms, a lot of patients have to take pain medication and some of them end up in frustration after standard treatment doesn’t show great results.

Another frustrating thing that might impede their recovery process is the fact that even the smallest of bumps or a certain movement might cause an incredible amount of pain. People usually have a slow recovery if they only follow the standard medical procedure but those who start having regular remedial massage will definitely feel a difference.

Fortunately, the frozen shoulder is one of the most common issues that can have a great recovery after sessions of remedial massage. This bothering symptom usually starts getting a lot more bearable after just a few sessions and some patients can expect a complete recovery after regular remedial massage.

The relief brought by a complete treatment in such cases makes a positive change in people’s life and improves its quality. Imagine not being able to use one arm properly and having to deal with constant pain that actually gets worse whenever you try to move your arm, that’s the type of pain people have to live with for years before being recommended to a remedial massage therapist.

Athletes and people who have a very active life style may also suffer from injuries that might disable them physically. People who are used to a certain type of activity level can develop depression especially if the injuries they sustained don’t recover fast enough and are a constant source of pain.

Fractures, although healed, can bring a great deal of pain especially when the same parts of the body that have been fractured are used for certain activities. A lot of people end up being more sedentary after a certain fracture because the pain they experience after is too great. This also takes its toll on their general health and they end up having more issues.

Remedial massage has been proven to be a great treatment for those recovering after bad fractures because it helps the blood circulation in the area thus helping it heal a lot faster.

A lot of athletes use remedial massage not only to recover faster after fractures or accidents but also to recover in a more efficient manner, because in some cases, having the bone healed doesn’t necessarily mean that the whole area is just as good as it used to be.

A lot of athletes would probably feel like they aren’t as strong as they used to or that the specific area gets tired a lot easier than it used to. Remedial massage is used to prevent such cases.

Benefit Of Remedial Massage 2

Other results showed that massage therapy was blocking the muscle pain just like pain medications so that could also be a big aid for those who have suffered accidents but also a healthy alternative for those suffering from chronic pain.

As you can see, massage therapy can have amazing benefits for your body and will help promote a healthy lifestyle that will make you more likely to be active and fit.

A lot of people have found remedial massage to be one of their most important tools when it came to recovering from accidents. A number of sports accidents have had better recoveries with the help of remedial massage and even issues that were related to mechanical injuries were easily treated with the help of massage.

There are several amazing cases of people who managed to recover with the help of this alternative medicine.

One of the people who found recovery in this alternative lifestyle was a woman who was approximately 60 years old. She had an injury in her spine from an accident that was more than 30 years ago.  The doctors didn’t give her a lot of chances for recovery but with the help of Chinese medicine and a lot of remedial massage she managed to recover completely.

She actually became a very active and athletic person at 60 years of age as she underwent regular massage treatments and did a lot of training. The remedial massage improved circulation in the area that was affected by accident as well as improved her overall health by keeping her muscles healthy.

Various medical literature sources also record cases of younger people who managed to recover from various types of injuries: more traumatic injuries such as car accidents and also less serious ones, but just as debilitating, such as chronic back pain.

People who suffered from chronic pain in their shoulders and neck had troubles adapting to a normal life after their diagnostic because it was so hard for them to keep a normal activity level. A lot of those with severe pain described it as a toothache-like sensation that was even more intense when physical activity was performed.

Not only that but some of those people even became depressive due to the fact that they weren’t able to enjoy their life anymore. However, a lot of them had amazing recoveries after regular sessions of remedial massage and afterwards only had a few regular maintaining sessions that kept them healthy.

The inactive lifestyle was replaced by a very active one with people being able not only to enjoy life’s moments at their fullest but also have a pain free existence. Although they might seem like mundane affections, back and shoulder pain can be as debilitating as the most severe types of illnesses and should not be left untreated.

Benefit Of Remedial Massage 1

In the history of medicine, cases of people who were considered untreatable often existed, but, with the help of remedial massage, a lot of them managed to have a great recovery after a traumatizing event.

People who play sports regularly, people who have certain accidents or people who end up having various injuries due to their activity, all could benefit from remedial massage if they want to recover well.

What makes remedial massage such a great therapy for them? A lot of scientific research has been done, especially since there were a number of people who considered remedial massage as a useless therapy. However, the results show what people have known since ancient times: remedial massage is a great tool for recovery and an amazing way to manage your effort well.

There are a number of scientific articles that show just ten minutes of massage can help a person reduce the inflammation in their muscle.

Due to the fact that this type of therapy doesn’t involve any drugs or other medical interventions, remedial massage is a perfect way to make sure that you get the blood flowing in your muscles and prevent various conditions such as arthritis or muscular dystrophy. A list of studies shows that massage will also help the body build more mitochondria as it signals to the cells that are responsible with this process.

Another interesting aspect that contributes to the recovery process during remedial massage is the fact that apparently massage also triggers some biochemical sensors, the sensors that send the signals to reduce inflammation.

So it’s no wonder that remedial massage is a treatment that has been widely used for centuries to treat certain affections. So those who want an amazing recovery after any type of injury should definitely look into remedial massage.

One of the newest studies in the remedial massage area has been made on 11 men who were in their twenties. The researchers measured the men’s efforts before the treatment started. After two weeks the men cycled the bicycle for more than 70 minutes, all until they couldn’t do it anymore. They rested for 10 minutes while the scientists called a remedial massage therapist to massage one of their legs.

Afterwards the scientists made muscle biopsies from each leg and compared the two. They found out that the massaged leg had reduced its inflammation. So with just a few minutes of massage, a person was able to recover better from their intense activity so imagine what a half hour or an hour of massage could do.

From Chiropractic Clinic To Pain Relief Massage Clinic

So many customers come to this clinic after spending weeks or months of treatment with a chiropractor. They usually decide not to see a chiropractor any more as they do not see any benefit or result.

One time, I had a client who tended to develop occasional lower back pain and he said,

“Your treatment is cheap.”

And I thought, “What? No way. My fee is one of the most expensive on the Gold Coast. How could you say that?”

He continued, “When I see a chiropractor, I will be asked to see him six times. When I come here, I only need to come once to get the result.”

That’s when I came to know what he had meant.

It is an interesting point of view and it was a very interesting experience for me because I had never been told that my fee was cheap.

I have to admit that good chiropractors are good but a chiropractor who just keeps performing manipulation of spine regardless of the symptom and hopes the pain will “crack away” one day might not be good.

Good chiropractors refer their clients with muscular problems to remedial massage therapists and they themselves receive a massage therapy for their own muscles.

Health Benefits Of Remedial Massage 5

Although a lot of people believe that the main purpose of remedial massage is to relax, actually remedial massage does so much more than that. It can help with symptoms you might have due to the conditions but it can also help you with the conditions themselves whenever other types of treatment have failed.

Some common conditions that can be alleviated with remedial massage: shin splints, groin strain, tennis elbow, frozen shoulder, hamstring injuries, scar tissue, adhesions, whiplash, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.

A typical remedial massage works to cover both muscular and skeletal dysfunctions and will usually last 20-40 minutes depending on the condition and how severe it is. The therapist will try to search for knots that can be caused by different accidents, falls or even strains but also by postural stress and muscle over-use.

These can get severe over time causing pain and other problems. It’s important to ask for remedial massage sessions when you notice that you may have some because you can easily treat them in a few sessions.

Don’t hesitate to choose a remedial massage session if you are suffering from the aforementioned conditions that can be helped with this type of treatment. You can go and ask for only one session and see how you feel afterwards, then you can reschedule regular sessions to make sure that you gain all the benefit to gain from this alternative approach.  Most patients go back for more after their first remedial massage therapy session.

Health Benefits Of Remedial Massage 4

A massage therapist is a person who needs a great deal of knowledge when it comes to anatomy and physiology, this is why it is very important to make sure that you choose one with experience.

Due to their knowledge, massage therapists can help with problems you might not even know you had as they can see whether you have problematic areas in your body while performing the massage. During the session, a massage therapist might ask for feedback from their patients to see whether there is an area they might have to treat.

Before undergoing remedial massage therapy, you should check with your doctor and see whether you have a serious condition that you might need to treat in order for the massage to have effect or to make sure that it won’t result in complications. A remedial massage therapist should also work with a doctor to make sure that the patient receives the best treatment they can.

When it comes to seeing the effects, depending on the underlying condition, a patient can see changes in an average time of three sessions. Sometimes, if there is pain involved, their pain might be alleviated even after one session, it all depends on the condition that causes them.

For example, if a person has a repetitive strain injury or a stiff neck, they will have relief even after a few sessions and their treatment might not have to continue for too long because they can see results very quickly.

It also depends on the time frame a person had that injury: if someone had an accident a few years ago and their leg hurts, they might need more time to recover and find relief with their pain than someone who recently had this problem.

Actually, there are even a lot of medical doctors who prescribe remedial massage for certain types of pain along with standard medication and sometimes remedial massage can be a good treatment on its own.

Neck pain, back pain, pain experienced in the limbs, all these can also be caused by repetitive strain injury, which is usually a condition people get from work or when doing strenuous physical activity regularly.

People suffering from illnesses such as fibromyalgia or lupus can definitely benefit from remedial massage both mentally and physically. Those suffering from fibromyalgia will surely benefit from the fact that remedial massage will help them get rid of the pain they might feel throughout the body and those suffering from lupus might need remedial massage to regain their mobility levels.

Better Massage Therapy On The Gold Coast

“I would like to recommend and thank Keishi for the wonderful deep remedial massage he performed on my upper back, neck and shoulders. It was definitely a treatment like no other and I have been getting massages for a number of years in various locations. He is extremely thorough with the treatment, polite, asks about pressure level and any other general questions. I would highly recommend seeing Keishi if you have any pain conditions at all which cause discomfort for your body. He really knows what he is doing!”

Thanks for a nice feedback. If a customer suffers from a chronic pain, I do as much as I can so that he or she does not need to come to this clinic very often. By that I mean, for example, if they used to have to have a treatment every two weeks because of their unbearable pain, I will try to make the effect of my treatment last longer like four weeks so they do not need to come back that often and save their money and time.

Massage Therapy Does Not Always Work On The Gold Coast

“I would just like to take the time to say Thank You so much for fixing my shoulder. I am 7 months pregnant and have had an extremely sore neck and shoulder for a month. I have been to other clinics who only made the problem worse. Then I found your clinic and after one session with Keishi, my shoulder was almost 90% better. Then after my second session, I feel 100% again. I would highly recommend Keishi to anyone who has Pain or even anyone just looking for a good massage. I know I will be visiting the Pain Relief Massage Clinic as often as I can until my baby arrives. Thank you again.”
By a Remedial Massage Client

Thank you for a great feedback. It was unfortunate that two other therapists had not been able to fix the problem. As we always say, anybody can do MASSAGE. If people look for a MASSAGE, they will get a MASSAGE. Maybe nothing else. If what people want is a PAIN RELIEF, they need to find someone who can deliver a PAIN RELIEF. MASSAGE is a feature, PAIN RELIEF is a benefit. If you just look for a feature, you might end up with no benefit.

If you are looking for a benefit(pain relief) instead of just a feature(massage), click and visit Pain Relief Massage Clinic on the Gold Coast and find someone.

History Of Shiatsu Massage Therapy 7

Even with all these prejudice, the important thing is that Shiatsu is known as a great massage technique throughout the world and has helped millions of people to find relief and get rid of serious illnesses. For those seeking this type of alternative treatment, there are quite a few health problems that may be improved or even prevented and cured by Shiatsu.

Those suffering from nervous system disorders such as paralysis, convulsions and even polio will find Shiatsu massage of great help. Also, those recovering from stroke have seen great results when undergoing therapy with Shiatsu massage.

When it comes to psychological issues, Shiatsu has been proved to work wonders for insomniacs. It will relax the patients and give them relief for any anxiety problems they might have.

Those suffering from muscle problems such as muscle aches, muscular atrophy, joint deformation and even tendonitis will find great relief with Shiatsu massage therapy, but it can also work wonders on digestive system disorders.

However, there are some contraindications when using Shiatsu such as acute diseases or malignant tumors so a person should be well aware of their general health when seeking Shiatsu therapy.

Even now, with great developments in standard medicine, people still reach out for Shiatsu. Most of them seek this type of alternative treatment because they’ve heard how great it is from others, but some will seek it to gain a sense of balance in their life.

Shiatsu is probably one of the few therapies where caring for your patient is a must, without having a connection and great understanding of the underlying problems, one wouldn’t be able to perform great Shiatsu, so for many this can also be a therapeutic approach for the soul.

History Of Shiatsu Massage Therapy 6

He was also interested in making Shiatsu an official method of therapy and due to his great success on various celebrities and high ranked people, he became one of those who had great influence on getting the treatment officially recognized. This led to an official regulation of Shiatsu as practitioners were bound to pass a test and have lots of experience before being able to legally open their practice.

When he reached the US, he met the founder of Chiropractic, B.J. Palmer and developed a good relationship. His son, Toru Namikoshi Sensei studied Chiropractic for 8 years and wrote many papers comparing Shiatsu with Chiropractic. He also developed his father’s technique of Shiatsu even further based on modern medical knowledge that he acquired in the US.

Another important name in Shiatsu development was Shizuto Masunaga who wanted to create a more traditional style of Shiatsu that used the Five Element theory and the energy meridians. But what was really important about his approach was the fact that he was interested in psychology, especially western psychology.

He actually became a psychology professor at the Tokyo University and did great research on the topic, especially in relation with Shiatsu. He was very interested in the connection between Shiatsu and emotional or psychological factors but also wanted to have a more spiritual approach to his therapy.

This lead to what was called Zen Shiatsu, a method that is most beneficial for those seeking emotional comfort and emotional balance, but also a great way for those trying to find a certain course in their life.

Nowadays, Shiatsu has managed to see many developments and great changes, when it comes to both government regulations and the public view. In Japan, the Ministry of Health authorizes it as alternative therapy along with various Chinese alternative therapies which has led the public to believe that Shiatsu is a form of Chinese Medicine.

One of the struggles of Shiatsu practitioners in Japan is getting rid of this prejudice that Shiatsu belongs to Traditional Chinese Medicine. Although it has some roots in Chinese Medicine, it has been completely developed in Japan and its first practitioners were all Japanese.

History Of Shiatsu Massage Therapy 5

Historically speaking, Shiatsu has been with us for a very long time. Treatments that included meridians, which were considered channels of energy, were used widely from Han dynasty and so forth. Even during the Neolithic, people used acupuncture as there were mummies discovered that had meridian points tattooed on their body.

So people have been aware of chi and energy channels for very long. In the 6th century, Japan started borrowing some of the Chinese healing methods and the theories that lead to the development of Shiatsu became widespread.

When it comes to the history of Shiatsu, one cannot omit mentioning Tokujiro Namikoshi-sensei, the founder of the therapy. He was born in 1905 and when he was only 7 years old he moved with his family in Shikoku Island, Japan where the weather conditions were extremely harsh.

At the same age he aided his mother who suffered rheumatism by performing massage on her as she developed the illness due to the harsh weather. He used his thumbs fingers and palms and tried to apply various degrees of pressure on her body.

After his thorough massage therapy it seems that she was completely cured. Due to the fact that there was no doctor in the area where they were living, he performed this treatment on many people and had great results.

After his success, he immersed himself into the art of Shiatsu and gained more knowledge creating a whole theory of the massage. He started a school of therapy where he applied his newly developed theories in order to further continue his research on Shiatsu.

His discoveries lead to recognition in 1964 by the Ministry of Health which considered that Shiatsu was an authentic method of treatment that was completely developed in Japan.

In his practice, he sought to understand the benefits of Shiatsu from a scientific point of view. He opened the first clinic that used Shiatsu as treatment in 1925 in Hokkaido and he used the principles and theories he had developed for so long to treat his patients.

He used a combination of many oriental therapies to treat his patients, including the Chinese therapy Anma, Do-in and Katsuho.

History Of Shiatsu Massage Therapy 4

There are different types of Shiatsu as this practice has grown to take many forms according to each instructor and his or her unique method. Some of the forms of shiatsu are: Tsubo Shiatsu, Zen Shiatsu, Tao Shiatsu, Meridian Shiatsu, Macrobiotic Shiatsu, etc.

Meridian Shiatsu is a treatment based on the traditional Chinese medicine. Tadashi Izawa sensei was the one who published a book on this treatment in 1964 and the whole story behind this type of Shiatsu is the fact that it works with meridian points that represent the energy of certain parts of the body.

Another type of Shiatsu is the Tsubo Shiatsu which is one of the classic methods of doing Shiatsu. It is based on Tsubo points, a treatment that was developed with great knowledge of anatomy and physiology and it’s probably one of the newest types of Shiatsu. Tao Shiatsu is another form of Shiatsu that takes a more religious and spiritual approach for those who wish to follow that path.

Another type of Shiatsu is Oha Shiatsu, a technique that was mostly developed in USA and it can be characterized by less pressure and gaining balance in the body through stretching and manipulation.

Another interesting type of Shiatsu is the Macrobiotic Shiatsu, a theory that works hand in hand with the Macrobiotic Diet. Actually, Michio Kushi sensei was the person behind both of them as he practiced a therapy that was based both on diet Shiatsu but also prescribed meditation and Chinese Herbal Medicine.

There are many ways to perform Shiatsu and each therapist can find their own path and approach with experience. However, all Shiatsu massage therapists are required to have a few hundred hours of experience and lots of basic medical science.

History Of Shiatsu Massage Therapy 3

Most people may go to a Shiatsu practitioner for a problem and find out that they have another underlying issue or a hidden illness. The massage therapist can check for irregularities on the skin, muscles and even whether a certain point on the body has an abnormal temperature; all these things can help them determine an illness a patient might suffer from.

If there are irregularities with your organs or even with the muscles, a therapist will be able to see it and apply the treatment through different techniques, thus diagnosing and applying therapy at the same time.

But applying mere pressure on the key points is not the purpose of Shiatsu. Specialists will apply a certain amount of pressure that will also be accompanied by a certain dynamic: for example, a key point might have a degree of pressure that can be applied quickly or slower. It all depends on the patient, the circumstances of his or her illness and also whether it is in an advanced state or not.

Usually an experienced Shiatsu therapist will be able to determine the type of treatment needed very quickly. Due to all these elements that need to be known, mastering the art of Shiatsu will take many years of experience.

Depending on the type of Shiatsu preferred, some clients will search for a therapist who has been schooled in a certain art of Shiatsu, for example Namikoshi’s style of Shiatsu which is very vigorous, while other may prefer another lighter approach.

It also depends on the client’s experience with Shiatsu as well as their comfort level and experiences with other practitioners in the past. A basic rule is the fact that a client should feel comfortable with their practitioner and the practitioner should do everything in their power to make their client as relaxed as they can before starting the treatment.

History Of Shiatsu Massage Therapy 2

The word “shiatsu” is a Japanese word that means “finger pressure” and if one would like to describe the therapy in simple terms, they can relate to its name as Shiatsu is indeed based on finger pressure. Parts of the body are pressed with the thumbs, fingers and even with the palms by the massage therapist in key points on the body and using different strokes in combination and also various degrees of pressure.

The massage is supposed to improve the body’s resistance to various diseases but also to enhance its natural healing ability whenever the client is facing a certain problem or they simply want to prevent some diseases.

Some forms of Shiatsu may be based on “Tsubo” which are points throughout the body that need to be pressed to activate the health benefits of this alternative treatment. The points don’t apply to other types of alternative treatments such as acupuncture for example and are only available and applicable during the Shiatsu massage therapy.

These points are not randomly selected, but based on an extensive understanding of both Physiology and Anatomy. This is why not everybody would be able to perform Shiatsu treatment and people who want to try this type of treatment need to go to a Shiatsu specialist. If a therapist doesn’t have enough knowledge when it comes to this type of massage, they might even damage a person’s health.

In theory, the important points of a person’s body that need to be activated by the Shiatsu massage include all systems of the human body, from the Muscular system to the Nervous system and even the Endocrine or Digestive system. Through them, a certain illness can be accessed and the client’s condition can be improved.

It is also believed that restoring balance in these points will help the organ they are linked to, and many times the balance can easily be restored with the help of Shiatsu.

One of the unique aspects of Shiatsu is the fact that it is a form of diagnosis and therapy at the same time, unlike other therapeutic methods. This means that a person well experienced in this massage technique can feel certain points on the body and determine whether the client may have a problem.

History Of Shiatsu Massage Therapy

Shiatsu is a massage therapy used for various illnesses and for pain relief in Japan. The massage has been used for many generations either as a treatment itself or to complement standard medicine practices. It is also used regularly to prevent diseases and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

The therapy has been widely used as a whole treatment, this meaning that it is not just a cure for the body but also helps a person psychologically and emotionally.

It is considered to be one of the most relaxing experiences you will find and regular sessions will improve the quality of life and will greatly help those who are trying to manage their stress and anxiety levels.

Since medical research has proved on how stress impacts one’s life in a negative manner and it is the underlying cause for many diseases, widespread treatment involving Shiatsu should be beneficial for the general population’s health as it may prevent a lot of the thousands of illnesses that may be caused by stress.

Although there have been controversies involving this type of therapy, Shiatsu has managed to become recognized and officially regulated.

Practitioners are not just mere street healers as many alternative therapy practitioners usually are; Shiatsu practitioners learn for years to become masters at this art and undergo a great series of tests before their final exam.

Even after their final exam, experience is a must and they must gather thousands of hours of experience before being recognized as great therapists.

Shiatsu is a technique that can be very difficult to describe, it can’t be considered just massage as it has a high spiritual component for some and it can’t be described as merely a spiritual approach on health problems because most of the time it is based on extensive anatomy information with a more holistic component.

On the other hand, some forms of Shiatsu have a very scientific approach, so one must be careful when trying to describe it with simple words.

History Of Massage Therapy 6

The 50s were a rough time for massage as it was seen as an alternative medical path. A lot of people who practiced massage moved out of the medical community, so massage became a sort of independent field.

Many opened their own establishments and offered a large variety of services that were linked to massage but not necessarily to medicine such as massage for relaxation. This also meant that many of those who were independent didn’t do a great job and people started avoiding massage because of a few establishments that weren’t professional.

By the early 1980s, people began seeking the services of massage therapists as a popular way to relax and it became one of the most adopted routines by those who were stressed by work. Massage was also used in combination with aromatherapy and music to create a relaxing environment that would promote relaxation.

With modern times also came the preconception that massage was a mere way of relaxation and linked by many to a luxurious Roman bath and even with prostitution in some cases. This took its toll on the practitioners of massage and the reluctant clients.

But with more and more information about massage and with doctors closely working with massage therapists, the image of the luxurious Roman bath faded and a hygienic relaxing but very professional establishment took its place.

Nowadays, there are many types of massage therapists for those who are purely seeking medical services. But there are also therapists who offer a more alternative approach to massage that may even include esoteric elements. In the medical world, massage has been specialized into many fields: there are physical therapists, sports massage therapists and licensed massage therapists.

Those who want to become massage therapists have to go through intense training, have to study fields that require great knowledge about the human body and will need many years of practice before being recognized in full as massage therapists.

People will seek massage therapists when they want to avoid taking medications or when they need to find alternative treatment for some of their illnesses. There are also many cases of massage being used with success where doctors thought there was no chance of recovery, so massage can be a powerful tool in promoting good health.

And, as it has done so many years before, massage is a great tool to promote mental health and now it is successfully used in the treatment of mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety and other afflictions that come with similar symptoms. One of the main roles of massage is, however, prevention of diseases and even helping with managing stress which is the main factor for diseases nowadays.

There are also some massage therapists who specialize in massage for babies to calm them down and even decrease their stress level.

So massage can prove to be a great benefit for your health whether you are trying to find alternative ways to improve your wellbeing or you simply want to relax and forget about your daily stress.

History Of Massage Therapy 5

In 1776, renowned French missionaries Jean Joseph Marie Amiot and Pierre-Martial Cibot translated Huangdi Neijing, the famous medical book in Chinese including the massage techniques that were used by the culture and brought everything back in France. This way, they introduced in Europe, systems of medicine that were almost unknown to Europeans including the massage techniques that were used in China.

By the 1800s, medicine was evolved and started being more formalized. Massage therapy was studied by nurses who were in training in John Kellogg’s nursing school. A book called The Art of Massage was used and nurses learned how to help patience with their pain or help them relax and sleep by massaging them.

Around 1800s, the term medical massage appeared and a lot of treaties on the body anatomy and massage were written. Medical massage focused on certain diseases and disorders where symptoms were alleviated with the help of massage.

Along with massage, there was also movement exercises performed, especially in children who were born with a weaker construction. This type of medical massage managed to grow because it brought massage to a reachable level as it was performed by most physicians as a routine treatment.

By the 1850, female hysteria was a very common illness and although it is not recognized anymore as an illness it was a popular way to diagnose women at the time. Massage was one of the therapies used to treat female hysteria and this proves that its benefits went beyond people’s bodies as it also managed to calm the mind.

In Victorian times, spas started gaining popularity. Turkish baths and therapies that involved the use of water made massage one of their main tools. With people in need for various medical treatments, it began being extremely popular in all social classes.

By the early 1900s, sports massage was a very important part of the medical world and people were looking to improve their physical appearance by using this type of treatment. There was a massage system for running athletes as it provided great benefits. The need for a scientific approach to sports massage grew and massage soon became a part of every athlete’s training.

Sports massage was a great way for athletes to improve their joint functions but also to increase their resistance while playing sports which made them better players. It was common knowledge that those who wanted an advantage on their competition had to undergo sports massage treatment.

History Of Massage Therapy 4

In the Middle Ages, massage was used for various purposes, including abortions which required it to be performed with greater pressure and large movements. But there were many uses to massage in the middle ages including its great effects on the joints and muscles.

However, as the Christian influence increased, most medical knowledge, including massage therapy, was prohibited as the church considered it to be witchcraft. Women who provided any kind of health care were almost all the time accused of being witches. But there were hospitals, especially those that treated war victims, which allowed healthcare including massage therapy.

A big name in the medical field was Avicenna and he was one of those who kept and improved knowledge in the field of therapeutic massage. He often recommended baths, exercise and massage as a way to improve the health of his patients. He wrote hundreds of books on medical topics including remedial massage and considered it to be a great way to relieve pain but also improve the healing process.

In Renaissance times, people began breaking the barriers that were imposed by religion and a sort of resistance against religion dogmas began. This meant that all medical knowledge was passed from physician to physician which lead to the development of many areas in medicine including massage therapy.

Because medicine and art progressed almost at the same time in this period, a lot of artists drew human bodies and played an important role in the progress of medicine. Besides Leonardo Da Vinci, there was an important anatomical artist who helped develop massage therapy; his name was Andreas Vesalius and he was one of the physicians who were for the dissection of human bodies although it was illegal in most parts of Europe.

His character is very controversial as he used to steal bodies in order to study them. His writings and drawings included massage therapy guidelines and vast knowledge about the human body. The Gutenberg printing press also helped spread ideas and knowledge which lead to improvements in medicine.

History Of Massage Therapy 3

Herodicus was another physician who used different types of approaches to medicine and he is considered to be one of those who created the base for sports medicine. Besides a good diet and exercises, he almost always recommended massage. He believed that massages had to be done in a specific manner that he prescribed and by increasing the pressure gradually over the length of the session.

In Ancient Rome, massage was also a big part of medicine but the medical profession wasn’t seen as a very valuable profession in the early history of Rome. The first medics and masseurs were slaves called Aleiptes who were actually trained in Greece, a place where medicine was seen as an important job for society.

The slaves were trained to cure different ailments through herbs and the use of massage. One of the most popular and renowned physicians was Asclepidaes who supposedly managed to bring back a man from the dead with the use of massage. Whether this story is true or not, we don’t know, but this definitely testifies to the fact that massage was an important part of many cultures, gaining such a mystical status in collective memory.

Another important person who inspired the use of massage was Aurelius Cornelius Celsus, who was a Roman physician and a medical historian. He managed to document a large part of Roman medical history and studies, plus the teachings of Hippocrates so he was greatly influenced by his theories.

In his writings he also mentions a few guidelines that need to be respected whenever a person performs massage therapy. He states that massage shouldn’t be used when there is a crisis stage of acute diseases or when there is a fever.

Also, he was convinced that patients who were more vigorous and had a stronger body needed to get a stronger massage with more ample movements than the ones who were weaker, so he promoted a sort of personalized treatment for each patient.

In 100BC massage had become popular in Rome and even Julius Caesar underwent massage sessions every day for his neuralgia and epileptic seizures. The famous Roman baths soon adopted massage that was used for relaxation during the bath while socializing. .

By the middle Ages, all the medical knowledge which included massage therapy was known throughout Europe. A lot of ancient manuscripts were collected and translated so that physicians could perform them on a regular basis.

History Of Massage Therapy 2

In ancient Asia, massage has been used even since 3000BC and was designed to be applied on particular points on the body to help restore health and even for stress management. In Japan, the same thing happened and massage therapy was even improved there to include the application of deep pressure to some points of the body. This helped with various conditions but also added a lot of benefit to the general health.

In India travelers came with the knowledge of massage from Chinese writings and it was rapidly incorporated in their culture. Indian healers used Ayrveda to promote mental and physical balance.

It was a traditional holistic medical system that was adopted throughout India and Southeast Asia that was based on creating a balanced life. People who were not in harmony with some aspects of their lives became diseased. For their healing, individuals had to use a number of medical practices including massage.

With Japan starting to import traditional Chinese medicine around 1000BC, it managed to develop its own massage techniques, one of them being Shiatsu. This type of massage was intended to raise the person’s energy level and stimulate all natural healing properties of their own body.

Physicians from Ancient Greece also used massage and it was mentioned as early as 460 BC. One of the most well-known ancient doctors, Hippocrates, wrote about the benefits of this practice and even considered that a physician had to be well versed in massage in order to be a good doctor.

He considered that massage was one of the most important therapeutic methods and in combination with various ointments he often prescribed it to his patients. He promoted massage to firm the muscles, or even relax them, but also for joints and aching parts of the body.

He also had another important role in the history of massage and the history of medicine: he managed to separate medicine from ancient superstitions and folklore. Before him, shamans used a form of massage such as stroking the limbs or rubbing the extremities to banish evil spirits from the body.

Hippocrates had another approach, a more scientific one and created a list of reasons why massage was helping a patient’s body whenever an illness occurred or whenever normal functions were disrupted.

One of the ancient doctors who included massage in medical books was Claudius Galenus who, influenced by Hippocrates, considered that massage was one of the most important tools a doctor had when providing treatment for his patients.

History Of Massage Therapy

Before getting to know about massage therapy and its role throughout the history, one must first know what massage is and what a thorough definition of it would actually be.

There are many types of massage but the basic element that they all have in common is the fact that the process involves manipulation of various layers of the body to promote different benefits such as better muscle reflexes, better circulation or even enhancing the healing process.

Massage therapy is a way to promote health that has been used by thousands of generations in various fields by those who had a passion for healing. Although nowadays we take massage therapy for granted, it needed many years, even thousands of years to develop to what it is today and some of the ancient techniques are still used in this practice.

The history of massage is a tumultuous one filled with stories and different factors that contributes to a complete understanding of what massage is. Even though scientific evidence has been limited due to the unique aspects of massage therapy, its benefits for health exist without a doubt and have been recorded for thousands of years in various medical texts and case files.

Massage has been used for thousands of years and it first started being used by physicians in Ancient times. There are many writings throughout history and various proofs that massage was used in Ancient Egypt, Greece, China, Japan and India but also in Rome.

However, massage was used since prehistoric times by shamans and even common people; there are artifact discoveries that attest the usage of certain ointments that they rubbed on their limbs in order to heal themselves. Religious healers used massage in their chanting to ward off evil spirits as they believed they were the causes of diseases in men.

Some of the earliest discoveries were in the Tomb of Akmathor – a tomb of a physician – where there is a depiction of men performing massage for relaxation and health benefits.

But what happens when a person develops endometriosis? This happens when the cells that make up the lining every menstrual cycle go outside the uterus. The cells, called endometrial cells shed blood that accumulates and forms scar tissue.

This scar tissue will give you pain and infertility. For infertility there are various treatments on the Gold Coast that can help you, but the pain can become unbearable, especially during your menstrual cycle. Instead of taking pain killers, you can try a remedial massage Gold Coast offers as it is a natural way to get rid of your pain.

Although women with endometriosis don’t have a lot of symptoms, there are things that might lead to noticing this problem. For example, pelvic pain is a very common symptom in endometriosis and it can be relieved with remedial massage.

With this type of massage on the Gold Coast, the therapist releases the toxins and muscular tension but also stimulates the hormone system. Since endometriosis is an illness based on hormone imbalance, the massage can stimulate and give you a boost along with your hormonal treatment. The immune system is also stimulated due to remedial massage so it can protect you from other illnesses that might aggravate your endometriosis.

Endometriosis is usually treated with surgery but patients can help themselves a lot if they add a remedial massage therapy because not only can they prepare themselves for the surgery procedure by stimulating their immune system but they might also be able to avoid taking some pain medication needed after the surgery.

If they have already been taking pain medication to alleviate their everyday pain symptoms, their body has become accustomed to the pain killers and they will probably need a bigger dose after surgery. Instead, they can choose to have a remedial massage and keep away from pain medication for a while before surgery just to make sure that their body will respond well to pain medication afterwards.

Remedial massage is also a relaxing way to help with insomnia that might happen because of the chronic pain people suffer. And since stress is a big cause and will also aggravate this illness and its symptoms, a few massage sessions on the Gold Coast are just the right thing to do after a stressful day since it helps you in so many ways.

A Remedial Massage Gold Coast Has To Offer You Helps Tenosynovitis Pain

Tenosynovitis is defined by an inflammation of a sheath that surrounds the tendon. In Tenosynovitis, the fluid filled sheath that surrounds the tendon becomes inflamed; this usually leads to swelling and a great deal of pain. People who develop this also have problems with mobility and flexibility. Sometimes the finger that is affected with this condition is stuck in a flexed position which causes pain.

Unfortunately, there are not many known causes for tenosynovitis but there are conditions that may lead to developing it. For example, people who use hand tools or work with their hands a lot might get injured and develop its symptoms. Another common cause is genetics as it seems to run in family. Being male is also a risk factor and also contacting the bacteria called Neisseria gonorrhea, which will lead to infectious arthritis.

The main problem in tenosynovitis is the fact that the tendons hurt and are swelled and depending on how severe the condition is the treatment varies. For example, if the condition is not that bad people will usually alleviate their pain with over the counter anti-inflammatory drugs. However, these might not be enough if the tenosynovitis gets worse and other types of medication might be needed.

This is where a remedial massage Gold Coast has to offer does wonders. It can help with the pain and stiffness caused by the liquid filled sheath. Remedial massage also breaks down scar tissue that often forms when there’s an injury or accident, and sometime this is one of the main causes for tenosynovitis.

Other treatments may include light exercise and even cortisone injections but also surgery. Surgery however might be a too extreme procedure for those suffering from this condition.

For those who have to work physically hard with their hands every day, this condition can be life altering but sometimes even those people can be helped to maintain their activity despite this illness if they choose to undergo regular remedial massage sessions. This clinical massage on the Gold Coast will help with pain and stiffness that makes a person’s hands nonfunctional.

Along with the pain symptoms people can suffer, sleeping problems also go away if pain is alleviated. A person who sleeps better has a better life quality and can concentrate to live their life at its fullest.

How A Remedial Massage Gold Coast Offers Helps Cerebral Palsy Symptoms

Cerebral Palsy is a term for various congenital motor conditions that cause problems in a person’s development. The condition is diagnosed at a very young age and affects everything that has to do with the central motor system, meaning that it will cause problems with motor control, epilepsy and even disabilities that have to do with cognition.

They will definitely alter a person’s life, but some of the symptoms can be alleviated with different types of procedures including alternative medicine and natural medicine such as a remedial massage Gold Coast can offer.

In patients with cerebral palsy, some muscular deficits may appear but also atrophied articular cartilage.

This is where remedial massage on the Gold Coast can do wonders as those sufferers can maintain a pain free life if they go to remedial massage sessions regularly. In patients with cerebral palsy, there might also be tight or shortened muscles, all this leading to abnormal postures and stiff joints.

Sometimes the pain can be extreme and a remedial massage session can bring a lot of relief, especially because it breaks scar tissue that often forms around the affected areas.

Another common symptom in cerebral palsy is insomnia as people who have this can develop sleep disorders. Due to various conditions that cause pain, people have a very hard time sleeping and this can lead to even more stress and a lowered quality of life.

Remedial massage that uses deep tissue and relaxation techniques can help these people get rid of stress, relax and find their balance but also eventually have regular resting sleep.

Once you get used to your remedial massage treatment on the Gold Coast, you will not only feel healthier but also notice changes in mobility and quality of your sleep. These can bring a great change in your life, especially when a person has suffered so long from so much pain.
