Massage Incline Village, NV: Recovering from Surgery
For those who haven’t had surgery, be thankful that you’ve been healthy and lucky enough to avoid it. For those who have had surgery, you know all too well that recovering can the most challenging part about it.
When undergoing common surgeries on your knees, shoulders or your back, recovery time can range from several weeks to multiple months. Many surgeries can be absolutely necessary and eventually be well worth the hassle of a long recovery, but that doesn’t mean the recovery time is any more enjoyable. From easing muscle tension and improving range of motion that can be lost during surgery to dealing with pain and coping with the stress that comes with recovery, massage therapy can certainly help. Here’s how.
Massage to Help Ease Pain After Surgery
Areas of the body such as the knees, shoulders and back are especially susceptible to extended periods of pain following surgery because of the extensive muscles, joints and locations of movement that surround the areas. Studies have shown time and time again that massage therapy works as an incredible pain reliever, and its ability to heal pain from surgery is just the same.
Massage Encourages a Faster Recovery
During recover, your surgery location needs as much nutrient-rich blood as it can get, which means that the more circulation, the better. Massage therapy improves the circulation in your body, getting more nutrients to your surgery site so you can heal and recover faster.
Massage Keeps You Calm
When you’re required to spend time off your feet away from your everyday life, stress can build up. Stress can also be caused when you aren’t feeling well, and while recovering, it’s likely to increase.
Bbeing stressed after surgery only delays the time your body will need to recover (which can cause even more stress).You just had surgery, the last thing you need on your mind is worry. Tell stress to take a hike to let you’re body recover as quickly and efficiently as it can.
Keep in mind that when your body undergoes surgery your body is healing for months after, and it’s important to wait until your surgeon or doctor approves that you’re healthy for massage before getting one. Always consult your doctor before scheduling a massage at San Soma when recovering from a recent surgery.
