ACUTE / CHRONIC PAIN

Massage Medic employs unique and effective techniques that have been extremely successful in eliminating chronic pain for those who suffer from migraines, sciatica, neck/back pain, muscle spasms and various types of sports injuries and medical conditions without the use of spinal/nerve blockers and narcotics. Medical massage provides pain relief and has the ability to permanently correct the conditions causing the acute/chronic pain and is the preferred treatment for those who wish to address the problem rather than mask it.

Acute pain begins suddenly and is usually sharp in quality. It may be mild and last just a moment or it may be severe and last for weeks or months. Acute pain might be caused by many events or circumstances, including:

  • Surgery
  • Broken Bones
  • Muscle Strain/Sprain
  • Nerve Impingem

Over time, unrelieved acute pain can lead to chronic pain despite the fact that the injury has healed. Pain signals remain active in the nervous system for weeks, months or years. Furthermore, chronic pain from an injury can be found in areas other than where the trauma occurred. This happens as your body changes its biomechanics in order to protect and compensate for the injury. Common chronic pain complaints include:

  • Headache
  • Low Back Pain
  • Neck Pain
  • Arthritis Pain
  • Neurogenic Pain (pain resulting from damage to nerves)
  • Psychogenic Pain (pain not due to past disease or injury or any visible sign of damage inside i.e. Fibromyalgia

Our therapists are well versed in correct body biomechanics and understand how important it is to keep the body in balance through massage, stretching and good posture. Whether your pain is acute or chronic our therapists are equipped with the proper tools and are dedicated to providing initial and long term pain elimination by identifying and correcting the cause of your pain.
