Easing pain with massage therapy
Technology has done some amazing things for humanity, but it has also unintentionally set us up for chronic pain by encouraging us to live a sedentary lifestyle.
Some studies show that sitting for long periods of time has a direct link to chronic back pain, leg pain, anxiety and many other ailments. According to the American Chiropractic Association, Americans spend at least $50 billion each year on back pain—and that’s just for the more easily identified costs. Experts estimate that as many as 80 percent of the population will experience a back problem at some time in our lives.
To cope with these ailments, many people turn to medication for relief, but it doesn’t always address the core issue. While medication can offer temporary relief, massage therapy offers a holistic alternative. Many people have reported that massage makes a difference in their pain management.
