May is arthritis awareness month

Scottsdale, Ariz. (PRWEB) -- An estimated 46 million adults have been diagnosed with some form of arthritis, according to the Arthritis Foundation. A leading cause of disability, the symptoms of arthritis include pain, swelling, stiffness and limited movement. Many sufferers have reported a reduced quality life with limited activity and chronic health problems. An effective and proven treatment for individuals with arthritis includes regular massage therapy. Massage Envy, the nation’s largest therapeutic massage provider helps bring stability back to the lives of arthritis sufferers by reducing pain and lowering anxiety. May is arthritis awareness month.

An arthritis study conducted at Yale Prevention Research Center, showed that massage therapy improved flexibility, lessened pain and improved range of motion. “Ultimately, massage may be shown to lessen a patient’s reliance on medications and decrease health care costs,” said researcher Adam Perlman, MD from the Yale Prevention Research Center.

“It is important to consult a physician when beginning a massage therapy wellness plan to treat arthritis,” said CG Funk, vice president of industry relations and product development at Massage Envy. “Regular massage therapy is an age-old remedy that can help improve joint movement and help break the cycle of pain and stress that comes from having arthritis.”

Massage therapy is an effective, affordable, and conservative approach when compared to other options – plus, it feels great. Benefits of massage therapy addressing arthritis include:

 
  • Reduction of pain in joints affected by arthritis
  • Improved range of motion and increased grip strength
  • Deeper sleep, which is important to managing arthritis since the body restores itself at night which can help reduce pain during the day
When proper massage therapy is coupled with physician-guided care, individuals can find relief from the symptoms of arthritis.
