Massage can increase the production of endorphins that is released into the body through a natural process without medications as an alternative therapy to reduce muscle pain from arthritis spasms.
Those who have osteo-arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis should carefully take note that: “Inflamed joint areas of the body should not be massaged with those suffering from problems in their joints”.
However, when the inflammation is manageable and or subsided, massage is possible to the surrounding muscles to help loosen up the joint and relieve its stress. Massage to the muscles and ligaments in the non-inflammatory area can break up the adhesion’s and increase joint mobility and flexibility to improve your ability of normal range motion and movement.
Massage can promote the secretion of synovial fluid into the joint cavity, filling up the empty space. This fluid forms a thin layer and acts like a buffer to support pain reduction and to reduce inflammation.
However, if fluid is absent stretching is not an appropriate technique. Sunstone Massage Therapists are qualified professionals that can determine the best treatment for each individual client’s case.
