The cold, damp weather or rain affects those living with arthritis and can create increased pain to joints.
Arthritis means inflammation of a joint. Pain, redness, swelling and heat are the signs of inflammation. Though Massage therapy cannot cure or stop the progression of any of these arthritic conditions, yet a good massage can certainly lessen the pain and inflammation.
The benefits of massage for arthritis include increase in circulation, increase in flexibility and mobility, decrease in pain and inflammation, relief of muscle aches and stiffness and a sense of overall relaxation and wellness.
Swedish massage and Trigger Point Therapy are especially useful here which involves pressure in trigger points to stop the pain.
You should consult a doctor if your pain is prolonged and if massages are not really improving your ailment.
