Back To School

The summer has come to an end and if you are a student, you are heading back to school. Most students either walk or bus with heavy backpacks five days a week. Taking care of your muscles when in school is important to prevent back, neck, and shoulder pain. Carrying a heavy backpack to school every day is just part of student life, but caring for your body seems to be put on the back burner. Back packs can put strain on certain muscles in your chest, neck, core, and shoulders. Certain muscles should be stretched and others strengthened when using a backpack during the school year.

Most students over pack their bags as their heavy workloads and school schedules demand multiple textbooks. Although decreasing the weight of the backpack might not be possible during the school season, there are other ways to help prevent muscle issues. By using a bag that has two straps instead of a one strap bag style that is cross-body, you can prevent shoulder pain and neck pain as the two straps help even out the weight of the bag over the back. Back packs that have a strap around the waist may also help evenly distribute the heavy bag so that the shoulders are not carrying all of weight. Stretching out muscles that are being affected, such as your chest muscles and neck muscles, is also important on a regular basis so that mid back pain and headaches don’t occur.

Massage therapy is another important factor in back and neck health when you are a student. Regular massages help get rid of muscle tightness, decrease headaches, and may also relieve stress that comes with school life. Universities may also have health plans for their students that aid in Massage Therapy coverage. If you are a student and use a backpack on a regular basis, book a massage today! You back and neck muscles will thank you!

Little Joints and Small Muscles

Lately I’ve been getting a lot of questions regarding small joints in the body such as in the feet or hands and whether or not Massage Therapy can help. Some clients, who use their hands regularly for work such as in a factory setting, will ask if I can massage to help relieve joint pain in finger and toes. Athletes may also suffer from joint pain, such as rock climbers or runners. These joints can most certainly be treated through massage therapy effectively!

Finger and toe joints may be small, but the muscles surrounding these areas are used every day and they almost impossible to stretch! When doing repetitive movements, scar tissue can develop with strains or the joints can be aggravated by the development of arthritis through years of work. Massage therapy can help break down scar tissue, increase range of motion in arthritic joints, and relax those tiny hard working muscles surrounding those small joints. Massage therapy and the manual manipulation of the joint and surrounding soft tissue is very effective because a Massage Therapists can access these muscles while self-massage or the use of other modalities is very difficult to do on these areas.

If you suffer from joint pain in your fingers and toes, don’t hesitate to book a massage today! It may help decrease your pain and aid to getting you back on your feet again!
