Neck and Shoulder Pain Relief
Your neck is made up of vertebrae that extend from the skull to the upper torso. Cervical discs absorb shock between the bones. The bones, ligaments, and muscles of your neck support your head and allow for motion. Any abnormalities, inflammation, or injury can cause neck pain or stiffness. This typically leads to neck and shoulder pain causing people to seek out neck and shoulder pain relief options.
If you’re often coming home from work or a work out with a stiff neck, shoulder pain, and chronic headaches, you may be suffering from a repetitive stress injury related to your job or workout routine. If you’re holding the same position with your upper body for long periods of time throughout the day, you’re more likely to sustain a repetitive strain injury. Either way, you'll be seeking out neck and shoulder pain relief.
Doctors often recommend anti-inflammatory medicines, but these drugs frequently don't provide enough relief. Previous studies of massage for back and neck pain have produced positive results. In a study, doctors had found that benefits of massage were evident after four weeks.
In the study neck and shoulder pain relief, researchers randomly assigned 228 men and women, aged 20 to 64, to one of six groups. These included 30-minute massages two or three times weekly, one-hour massages one, two or three times weekly, and a comparison group receiving no massage.
Assessing neck and shoulder functioning and pain levels a week after treatment ended, the researchers determined that patients getting one hour of massage three times a week showed the most gains after four weeks of massage.
