Our lives in Dubai can be hectic at times, Chronic pain can be caused by sports injuries, accidents or poor posture, with symptoms occurring when a muscle has been contracted repetitively, such as when sitting at a desk causing stress-related muscle tension, or tasks that require repetitive motion such as typing on a laptop for several hours every day. Massage therapy helps to relieve the soft tissue restrictions that cause this pain.
Symptoms of soft tissue (scar tissue) include:
- Weak and reduced range of motion in muscles
- Numbness and burning pain and aches between muscles and nerves
- Improper movement, pinching, and swelling of joints
Chronic pain, such as lower back pain, is caused by myofascial tightness within the fascial system, which can contribute to the pain that requires treatment. When fascia is in its normal healthy state, it is relaxed and supple. When restricted it is rigid and less pliable, creating pulls, tensions, and pressure.
Chronic pain develops when the body adapts its movements to avoid pain from the original injury to protect that area, creating tension in the surrounding soft tissues. Myofascial release and soft tissue therapy can be very effective for immediate pain relief and prevent further injury. Following an injury, tightness can occur in the tissues that restrict the full range of motion.
Your massage appointment will focus on releasing muscular shortness and tightness that restricts the full range of motion of a joint which pulls the body out of alignment & contributes to the pain felt in tension headaches and low back pain. During your appointment, your Therapist will stretch and loosen the fascia and soft tissue resulting in you being able to move more freely with less pain.
