Did you know?

Massage can help with many common problems. Here are descriptions of some problems that massage can help with:

 

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) - one of the most common nerve compression issues that we deal with today. It is caused by compression of the medial nerve in the carpal tunnel which is made up of the carpal bones that are located on the palm side of your wrist. This dysfunction develops over time from repetitive use of the wrists, hands and upper body and limbs. Most common symptoms of (CTS) are paresthesia, numbness, or pain felt in the wrist or running into the thumb, index finger, middle finger and sometimes the inside of the ring finger. Pain, numbness and tingling can also sometimes be felt in the forearm.

 

Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction (SI Joint) - one of the most complex joints in the body and is a very common problem area.  It is a bilateral joint (one on each side) that is located between the sacrum (just below the base of your spine) and the ilium (upper inner side of your hip). Symptoms are usually established in the areas of your lower back and glutes and even down into your legs. Sensations usually include sharp pain, dull ache, numbness or even tingling in these areas. NOTE: Sciatica and Piriformis Syndrome can also relate or mimic these symptoms, which are also treatable by massage therapy.  

 

Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ) or (TMJD) - The Temporomandibular joint is located directly in front of the ear. TMJ is a bilateral joint (one on each side) on the side of the head where the upper jaw and the lower jaw meet. Dysfunction of this joint are primary found in women, possibly due to hormones. Some symptoms of TMJ or TMJD are headaches, pain on the sides of the face, clicking or popping in the jaw and ear pain or ringing in the ear. Some causes of TMJ or TMJD are clenching teeth, constant chewing of gum or consistently taking too big of bites when eating. Another cause is jaw imbalance (always chewing and eating on just one side of the mouth).
