Massage therapy for neck and shoulder pain
Millions of people across the country are suffering from neck and shoulder tension and pain right now. Whether your pain results from a sports injury, car accident, or activities of everyday life, neck and shoulder pain can be difficult to live with, inhibiting your movements, giving rise to headaches, and interfering with your quality of sleep at night. The shoulder blades (scapulae) are the bones which connect the humerus (upper arm bone) with the clavicle (collar bone) at the sterno-clavicular junction, where the sternum and clavicle come together. We need strong muscles to support the scapulae, which are wide, flat bones that provide an attachment for three different groups of hard working muscles.
Because of the load our shoulders bear, the muscles connecting our arms, shoulders, and neck often become tight and overworked. Regularly scheduled massage therapy helps ease your entire body, and can relieve your tired, overworked muscles and allow you to live without pain. Massage also helps keep your joints fluid and limber, reducing your chances of pulling a muscle. If your sore, tired, achy muscles are affecting your posture and flexibility, massage therapy can help restore a full range of motion and function, and allow your body to resume a healthy posture. Good posture benefits your muscles, bones, and internal organs, and allows your body to function as it was designed. Massage can even result in better blood pressure, a healthier heart rate, and increased relaxation in addition to relieving your body of stress.
