Who really knows where neck pain comes from. It just pops up from stress, a bad night’s sleep, a strain, who knows.
However, when it does pop up, too many people think it has to do with spine alignment and not about the muscles or tightness.
It could be a problem with the spine or vertebra, but it could also be that the muscles in the neck are tight or constricted, or have landmine knots in them called trigger points.
In fact, the cause of most neck pain are muscle imbalances, tight muscles, and trigger points, with the most important first step to get rid of it for good being highly skilled neuromuscular massage therapy, which details and releases the muscle spasms and trigger points like no other technique.
Adults regularly report having neck pain and most likely everyone has experienced it. Most people come for neuromuscular massage with the complaint of chronic neck pain.
Massage for Neck Pain
1. Massage around the spine can be pain relieving and soothing. These muscles may alleviate tension within the neck. Therefore, any amount of specific, detailed neuromuscular massage and relaxation for neck painmay be beneficial.
2. Neuromuscular massage is the most scientific, evidenced based massage, and most valid approach of massaging the neck area that is sore, distressed, or in pain. Treating the body holistically as a unit is crucial, as different areas of the body are connected to others, so overall attention to the spine in general is important.
3. Massage for neck pain is not just for pain management, but it can also be preventative. With regular neuromuscular massage, pain after a trauma or accident may be reduced. This emphasis on pre-trauma health is increasingly based on research and evidence.
4. Massage scheduled regularly will more significantly benefit neck pain.
Besides tight muscles and trigger points, the cause of neck pain can often be a mystery, but sometimes neck pain is transient. Preventive, ongoing massage is key. For more information, contact Massage Revolution.
