Managing Torticollis with Massage Therapy
Torticollis is often referred to as a wry neck or twisted neck. Torticollis is characterized by involuntary muscle spasms or contractions that lead a person to carry their neck in an abnormal position. Symptoms of torticollis are neck pain, stiff neck, shoulder pain and headaches. Some babies are born with torticollis, but most often, torticollis is caused by nerve or muscle damage from whiplash or a similar injury. Torticollis can affect both children and adults. There are several treatments that can be used for muscular torticollis, but massage therapy is one of the most effective treatments for pain relief. The massage therapist will use a variety of modalities to treat torticollis including heat, massage, traction and stretching to relieve the pain. The massage therapist will slowly begin gentle stretching of the neck and then work into a gentle kneading massage. As the soft tissue in the neck becomes relaxed, the therapist will begin a more deep kneading massage. Once the neck is fully relaxed, the therapist will try to move the neck in all directions using passive movement. They will begin to stretch and hold the neck in various positions to lengthen the neck muscles. With the muscles lengthened and relaxed, the therapist will find any tender trigger points in the neck area. They will press and hold the trigger points until the muscles and soft tissue relax.The therapist will give also give ideas for treatments to do at home in between profession massage therapy sessions. These may include the application of alternating cold and hot packs to sore areas of the neck as well as at home stretching exercises.
How Massage Therapy Can Help Ease
Anxiety and Panic Disorder Symptoms
Massage therapy can help the body relax, which in turn can help one let go of anxious and fearful thoughts. Massage can relieve muscle pain and tension, improve circulation, and increase flexibility. As a relaxation technique, massage therapy can work to manage the fight-or-flight response, or stress reaction, that is typically overactive among people with anxiety disorders.
The fight-or-flight reaction is responsible for causing fearful thoughts and reactions that often far outweigh any actual threat in the environment. For example, people with agoraphobia often fear having a panic attack in a large crowd or confined areas where it would feel embarrassing or difficult to escape.
The fight-or-flight reaction typically leads to uncomfortable physical symptoms, such as shortness of breath, accelerated heart rate, excessive sweating, and chest pain. Massage therapy can have an opposing effect on the body by eliciting the relaxation response, reducing tension, lowering heart rate, and generally making a person feel calmer.
Anxiety and Depression
Massage for wellness can help those who suffer from mental health issues. For example, a study found that massage lowered the stress hormone cortisol in patients suffering from anxiety by 53 percent, according to the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA). Research has also found the natural treatment increases serotonin and dopamine, which helps those experiencing depression.
How massage can help scoliosis:
For decades, bracing and spinal fusion have been the go-to treatments for scoliosis.
But as a growing body of research sheds new light on this complex condition, patients are increasingly turning their backs on these outdated practices—and seeking alternative therapies instead.
Massage, in particular, has gained attention for its ability to reduce the chronic back pain that’s sometimes associated with scoliosis. A skilled massage therapist “can use a combination of massage strokes, sustained pressure, positioning and stretches to help balance the muscles of the back and body” and temporarily alleviate scoliosis symptoms.
While it can’t fix the underlying cause of scoliosis, medical research has found that massage therapy can provide temporary relief from scoliosis pain and other symptoms. There are two primary types of massage that can help: cranial-sacral therapy and deep tissue massage.
Cranial-sacral therapy: By gently mobilizing restricted tissue around and within the spinal column, cranial-sacral therapy helps balance the spine and improve the patient’s ability to function.
Deep tissue massage: Deep tissue work, assisted stretching and neuromuscular therapy all help the spine relax by increasing blood flow and elongating tightened areas, which can help relieve muscular pain.
Appropriate application of cranial-sacral therapy and deep tissue massage can provide a respite for continuously over-stretched fascia and muscles, thus lessening the stress on a wrenched spinal column. Although not one of the treatment options for correcting this condition, massage therapy can help relieve some of the resulting back pain, shallow breathing, sciatica, headaches and insomnia brought on by this aberrant spinal structure.
While no single treatment can cure scoliosis, back massage plays a supportive role in reducing pain, improving functionality and enhancing the effectiveness of other therapies. With the right combination of treatments, patients can achieve significant long-term results
