Leg Pain Therapy in Los Angeles
Are you experiencing debilitating pain in your legs? Do you feel like your leg is a big knot of tense muscles? Massage therapy might be the answer to your problems.
Massage therapy has been widely practiced for thousands of years. Many cultures around the world have documented the benefits of massage such as cure to different health conditions. Massage therapy is still a widely recognized method applied for relaxation and stress relief. It is also known also to deal with pain, arthritis, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, and depression, and many more. Massage therapy is one advanced technique to deal with certain issues in your legs.
What Is Leg Pain Therapy?
Massage therapy isn’t just a Swedish massage or deep tissue massage with deep strokes or harder pressure. It applies firm pressure and slow stroke to work on the deeper layers of your soft tissues and fascia, which is the connective tissue around your leg muscles.
Massage therapies are applied to break up scar tissue and break down muscle knots you feel in our leg muscles, which form bands of rigid and painful muscle tissue. The muscle knots can slow down the circulation of blood and cause discomfort and inflammation. When the massage therapy starts, your massage therapist usually begins with light pressure to stimulate your muscles and then works into hard pressure.
The most common techniques applied in massage therapy involves stripping, which is deep pressure that glides along the length of your muscle fibers and friction, which uses pressure across the grain of your leg muscle to loosen up adhesions and align tissue fibers.
What Are The Benefits of Leg Pain Therapy?
For leg pain that is caused by overuse, massage treatment can ease the inflammation, increase blood flow, and reduce muscle tightness. Strenuous exercises may lead to inflammation resulting in some tears in your leg muscle fibers. The body immediately goes to work repairing those torn tissues. The results of some studies indicated a difference between the massaged leg and the leg that had not undergone the therapy.
