Should You Try Fibromyalgia Massage?

One of the main symptoms of fibromyalgia is sensitivity to touch, but believe it or not, fibromyalgia massage can still be part of your treatment plan.

One of the main symptoms of fibromyalgia is extreme sensitivity to touch, so it’s understandable that some people with fibromyalgia avoid getting massages. However, they are missing out on something great.

Massage might seem like the very opposite approach to take for fibromyalgia pain, but the right amount of pressure and manipulation can actually do a lot for your congested muscles and tissues. In reality, massage is a perfect natural remedy for fibromyalgia. Therapeutic kneading will stimulate blood flow, eliminate metabolic waste, and lengthen muscle fibers. The right massage for fibromyalgia will work within the limits of your condition to release pockets of tension, and improve your physical wellbeing and quality of life.

 

There are many types of therapeutic massage, and the right style for your fibromyalgia pain will respect your muscle sensitivity and particular pain issues. Stick with these massage techniques for the most healing benefits:

Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:

While fibromyalgia has been known to cause symptoms of chronic pain, many individuals with the condition avoid massage or other forms of similar treatment to avoid aggravating their symptoms. However, massage therapy performed by a qualified healthcare professional can not only be beneficial, it can help reduce and manage the pain caused by fibromyalgia.
