The shoulder is one of the most complex parts of our body. It is made up of bones, muscles, veins, arteries, nerves, and many other supporting structures such as ligaments and tendons. The amount of mobility in the shoulder also makes it a reasonably unstable joint, leading it to be extremely vulnerable to injuries. Any damage, shock, or injury to the shoulder joint, muscles, nerves, tendons, or any other structure can become the cause of shoulder pain. Luckily, most shoulder pain/complications (except for those that are caused by an acute injury such as a dislocated shoulder or a broken bone) can be easily treated with remedial massage treatment, rest, and some patience.
How Remedial Massage Can Help | Remedial Massage For Shoulder Injuries
The best way to deal with shoulder injury/pain is to reduce or avoid activities which are aggravating the condition / change your activities, and have remedial massage for any muscles that have become restricted in order to regain shoulder strength and flexibility.
Remedial massage is an approach that not only traces the root cause of the shoulder dysfunction/pain by using several assessment techniques; it also supports the body’s own repair mechanism to boost the healing process.
Some common massage techniques used by our remedial massage therapists at Melbourne Natural Therapies to effectively manage and treat shoulder pain/injury include:
Deep Tissue Massage | Remedial Massage For Shoulder Injuries
Deep tissue massage is highly effective in reducing pain and discomfort associated with soft tissue injury. The remedial massage therapists use firm-pressure to release tight layers of muscles and tissues thereby alleviating pain, muscle spasm and stress from the problematic area.
Trigger Point Therapy | Remedial Massage For Shoulder Injuries
For most stubborn and complex shoulder injuries, a remedial massage therapist may consider using trigger point therapy. After identifying what trigger points are involved, the massage therapist applies pressure to these specific points in order to release the stress and tension and alleviate pain.
Cupping | Remedial Massage For Shoulder Injuries
Cupping therapy can help release tight muscles, remove adhesions and restore optimal blood supply to the affected area so that the healing process is increased. For this reason, cupping can work on chronic pain that may result from old injuries and strains also.
