Benefits Of Massage Therapy For Wheelchair Users
Massage therapy can have tremendous physical benefits for people in a wheelchair. Individuals who are in a wheelchair often have muscles that are both tightened and weak because they have not been used. In contrast other muscles are used more and these become painful or begin to ache. It can be upsetting when using a wheelchair causes you to develop pain in the limbs that you can still use due to them being overworked.
Numerous studies have shown massage therapy helps with this type of chronic pain. This form of therapy causes the release of endorphins. This can been see as the painkiller for the body and well hope lower levels of pain felt. This also ensures that someone in a wheelchair experiences lower levels of stress, providing an example of how massage therapy can offer mental benefits too.
Other physical issues include poor circulation and this can trigger other painful issues such as pressure sores. However, our expert therapeutic massages can help alleviate this issue and ensure that blood flow is improved throughout the body. This will ensure that sores do not develop due to the fact that toxins can be removed. Improved blood flow can provide other benefits too such as more rapid healing of different areas of the body.
Furthermore, massage therapy can be beneficial in improving mobility. The joints in the body will have a greater range of motion after a professional massage treatment. As well as this, if joints are inactive, a proper professional massage from our staff can help ensure that the joints continue to be supple. This once again tends to reduce levels of pain felt through the body.
Of course, the discomfort of a wheelchair isn’t just physical. Mental conditions such as depression, stress, anxiety and helplessness are all common. However, a professional massage treatment can help here too. Studies have shown that massages can help patients feel less stressed and generally happier. It may be the key to understanding your condition and coming to terms with this change in your life. If you are not use to being in a wheelchair, it can be devastating.
