Help Heal Injured Muscles With Massage

January 25th, 2017 • Posted by Mary Nix • Permalink

Massage therapy has been used to help improve the health and well-being of people from all walks of life, with all manner of injuries and conditions. It is commonly used on athletes when they've sustained some manner of sports injury, from simple sprains all the way to broken bones. But athletes aren't the only people who can injure their muscles. Whether you've sprained an ankle stepping off a curb, or hurt your back while moving boxes, massage therapy can help get you back on your feet with less downtime than if you'd only used common rehabilitation practices.

When combined with standard injury rehabilitation and advice from medical doctors, massage provides an effective supplement by helping to improve blood flow to and around the injured area while also working to relieve any stiffness caused by lack of mobility. Keeping the muscles warm also helps to reduce swelling by breaking down any adhesions and stretching out tissues, lessening the recovery time needed before you can resume your normal activities.

A trained massage therapist can avoid aggravating any problem areas while keeping muscles warm and relaxed, not only lessening discomfort but also increasing blood and oxygen flow to tissues and internal organs. Even patients with more serious injuries such as burns and broken bones can benefit from massage due to this improved circulation.
