Muscle pain – immobility is not the best solution

Massage and movement recommended for muscle pain

If you have low back pain, stiff neck muscles,hip pain or shoulder pain then reducing movement is not going to make you feel better. How often do you wake up in the morning feeling stiff and sore? Muscle pain is often a lifestyle issue. Our bodies like to move, they don’t like to be fixed in a position for hours, for example at a desk, bent over gardening, or slumped in a chair watching TV.

For a healthy body you need to be well nourished, good quality food, not a slice of toast for breakfast but some scrambled eggs or porridge for example which will give your body slow burn energy and lift your blood sugar from its overnight low. A simple stretch routine on waking – the yoga ‘ Salute to the Sun ‘ routine covers all bases and will make you feel limber and energised. Build exercise into you day – every day! Walk when you can, do a little resistance work to keep you muscles strong and your balance and stamina high.

Get a massage. Massage helps to restore the muscles, shift toxins and above all it relaxes you. Come and have a monthly massageĀ  in Ely at my treatment Room in the Ely Complementary Health Centre.

Should you have massage to help ease your muscle pain?

How much will massage ease your back pain? Do you have a stiff neck? Do you have hip ache?

Remedial massage may be of enormous benefit in treating all of these problems. Muscles store their grievances at what you ask them to do – we all perform very repetitive tasks with our bodies and then we expect them to function well for us without giving them any real attention.

You wouldn’t ask your car or bike to work without ever giving it a service would you? Think of a massage as essential maintenance. Your creaky back or stiff neck has probably been troubling you for months……..at myEly remedial massage practice I see people every day who have been tolerating muscle soreness for weeks or even months. With deep soft tissue massage – which I would like to add is not painful when done with skill- we can unwind all the muscle pain you have collected and improve functionality. We then set about keeping you that way!

I learned my skills at the The London School of Sports Massage and I am a member of the ISRM. They teach there a combination of Osteopathic soft tissue techniques, massage skills, connective tissue ,myofascial release techniques and postural analysis.

Graduates are highly skilled therapists with a thorough knowledge of how to work on musculoskeltal problems.

I have been working with a team of Osteopaths in Ely for a number of years.

If you are despairing, come and see me we may just be able to find an answer.
