The knees are responsible in carrying a lot of weight. That is why knee pain is fairly common. Knee pain can make doing activity very difficult. However, knee pain also emanates from the tissue and muscles surrounding the knee.
Fortunately, knee massage for knee pain can be employed to relieve the discomfort. Petrissage is the ideal massage technique that can be used in addressing knee pain. This technique is manifested by rolling, squeezing, wringing and picking up. A visit to a qualified Massage Therapist is often a good first step to identify which method of massage for your knee pain will be most helpful.
Another technique that your Massage Therapist may choose to use is the deep friction massage in which they will utilize the tips of their middle fingers in massaging the muscle outside the knee.
