Massage Therapy and Pain Management

Is massage therapy effective for pain management?

According to the National Health Interview Survey, more than 1 in 5 adults in America experience chronic pain, and over 50 million reported pain on most days or every day.

Data also suggests these patients are proactively seeking alternatives to opioids.

A recent Health Checkup survey by the Mayo Clinic showed over 90% of patients prefer alternatives to opioids with many specifically mentioning massage therapy.

Research continues to show positive effects of massage therapy, especially for conditions where chronic pain is part of the symptom profile.

And remember, as a massage therapist you need to protect yourself and only the best massage therapist insurance coverage will do!
