Massage Therapy for Muscle Pain

Muscle pain is a common problem that can affect people of all ages. While there are many different treatments available, massage therapy is often seen as a natural and complementary option. But how effective is massage therapy for muscle pain?


What the research says

A recent study (Bervoets et al., 2015) reviewed the evidence on massage therapy for musculoskeletal disorders. The researchers found that massage therapy can provide short-term relief from pain and improve function in people with some conditions such as shoulder pain, knee osteoarthritis, and low back pain.


What does this mean for people with muscle pain?

Massage therapy can be a helpful part of a treatment plan for some conditions, but it is not a cure-all. If you are looking for a natural way to relieve muscle pain, massage therapy may be worth considering in conjunction with other interventions.


Tips for getting the most out of massage therapy:

  • Communicate with your therapist. Let them know what areas you are having pain and what your goals are for treatment.
  • Be realistic about your expectations. Massage therapy is not a quick fix, and it may take several sessions to see results.
