Pain is often associated with some injury or illness, and we just assume the pain will be temporary and it will go away ‘as soon as it heals”. But, for some people, pain is simply part of their everyday lives It is ongoing or recurring and it can feel like there is no respite available. Chronic pain is often defined as any pain lasting more than 12 weeks, but chronic pain can persist for months, or even years. It is estimated that one in five Canadians suffers from chronic pain.
People with chronic pain often turn to massage therapy to help naturally improve their quality of life. In fact, the majority of people visit a massage therapist to reduce pain, whether due to an injury or to help relive the chronic pain of fibromyalgia, arthritis, back spasms, or other chronic pain syndromes. Often the reason behind the pain is unexplained, but the pain persists nevertheless.
Chronic Pain Massage is rarely the only (or main) treatment for chronic pain, but when used in conjunction with other medical aids it can be an important and effective part of your pain management regime.
