Muscle stiffness is a common symptom of many different conditions and diseases. It can be caused by muscular strain, inflammation, or injury, or it may be associated with other symptoms like pain, swelling, and limited joint range of motion. Treatment for muscle stiffness typically involves rest and could include treatments like massage therapy, physical therapy, and chiropractic treatments from Spring Creek Medical Center.
Massage Therapy Benefits
Benefits of massage therapy include:
-Relieving pain and discomfort related to injuries, arthritis, muscle tension, and other conditions.
-Improving circulation and flexibility.
-Reducing stress and anxiety.
-Enhancing sleep quality.
-Promoting relaxation and well-being overall.
Going to see a professional massage therapist can greatly improve your overall well-being. The body is under constant pressure, and aches and pains can be hard to ignore. Your body may be over-strained and in need of relaxation and recovery. Perhaps you are busy with work or school and you feel constant stress and pressure. Spring Creek Medical Center uses up-to-date practices to give your body the full benefits possible.
How Often Should I Get a Massage
Experts suggest getting a massage roughly once a month. Often, pregnant women find relief from tension by going twice a month. Athletes who practice daily can reduce swelling, and pain, and reduce the risk of injury by getting a massage monthly. Our therapists can help you determine how often you should come in, and they can provide at-home techniques for support in between appointments.
How to Avoid Muscle Tension
Muscle tension is an automatic response of your body. It’s a way for your muscles to tense and protect themselves from injury, especially during physical activity or when experiencing strong emotions like fear, anger, or excitement.
While muscle tension can be helpful in these situations, it can also become troublesome if you have chronic muscle tension. Chronic muscle tension can lead to pain, stiffness, and decreased mobility of the affected areas of your body. Common causes of chronic muscle tension include stress and anxiety, poor posture, and misaligned joints (such as misalignments in the spine). Spring Creek Medical Center is able to help with all sorts of body strains. Our office in Logan, Utah has many disciplines including physical therapy, massage therapy, and chiropractic care. While they do intertwine with one another, most tension in the body is resolved with the help of massage therapy.
