Osteoarthritis is a very common condition, affecting over 2 million people nationwide.

Osteoarthritis is a disease affecting the whole joint, including the bone, cartilage, ligaments and muscles, but most commonly occurs in the knees, finger joints, hips and feet.

4 benefits of massage therapy when dealing with osteoarthritis include:

  1. Massage therapy releases muscle tension and relaxed muscles reduce the weight burden load on the joints.
  2. Massage techniques can help in the removal of collagen tissue within the joints, improving joint flexibility and range of movement.
  3. Massage therapy offers pain relief by relaxing the muscles and tendons surrounding the joint.
  4. Massage can improve healthy circulation throughout the arthritic joints reducing swelling.
