Massage Therapy for Chronic Pain

In Canada, approximately one third of people who suffer from Chronic Pain (CP) that comes from a variety of health conditions have reported that they feel longstanding pain in the severe ranges. A consensus is developing that there is a high prevalence of chronic pain in adult populations living in industrialized nations according to the National Centre for Biotechnology Information (NCBI).

There are many health conditions that contribute to chronic pain such as muscle problems like Tendinitis, a frozen shoulder, Osteoarthritis, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), and Cervical Neck Pain to name a few.

Also, many people from all age groups suffer from internal existing health problems such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Endometriosis, Severe Menstrual Cramps, Interstitial Cystitis, and pain associated with Cancer.

There is an extensive list of (CP) conditions but no matter the source of your pain, the benefits of massage are widespread. Having a massage targets the fascial tissue surrounding your muscles and helps to restore affected organs in the body.
