Although there is no definite cure for chronic pain conditions, a massage therapy is one of the best options to help manage and alleviate the situation. Chronic pain can stop individuals from carrying their day to day activities and if not managed it could cause more serious damages. A massage therapy can help you get back on your feet and your normal functioning.
Pain is often associated with some injury, but when it comes to chronic pain, the pain is a routine part of daily lives. The pain lasts for more than 12 weeks which could persist for several months. Chronic pain has many causes, but one of the main reasons is fibromyalgia.
Fibromyalgia is a disorder that causes musculoskeletal pain, tenderness in the localized areas, fatigue and even lack of sleep. It could also affect the functioning of your brain. Its cause is unknown, but studies have shown that if the victims are subjected to repeated nerve stimulation, it causes their brain functioning to change. The change is characterized by an increase in the level of certain chemicals in the brain, which causes pain.
How massage can reduce chronic pain from fibromyalgia
Massage improves the quality of life of the patient and reduces the pain. As mentioned, some signs of this disorder are the lack of sleep and anxiety both of which can be highly eliminated by a massage therapy. Massage therapy is a perfect option for the treatment of chronic pains from fibromyalgia, and if done for duration of five weeks or more, it is a reliable treatment for the condition. It does so by stabilizing the level of brain chemicals hence eliminating pain.
If you are suffering from the disorder, do not hesitate to see a massage therapist. Also, prevention is better than cure, and it is wise to have the massage therapy done even if you feel fit. Massage therapy will not only reduce the pains but also boost your brain function and this way you can carry on with your daily activities peacefully
