Massage Therapy for Trochanteric Bursitis

You too can improve your circulation and get the relief you need this holiday season with massage therapy for bursitis relief. In case you didn't know, any joint that is subject to repetitive motion can end up swollen, full of liquid, and sore. Massage therapy can improve circulation and can also relieve the pain that exists due to joint pain.

Relief of Symptoms

There are many ways to relieve the symptoms of bursitis, but one way is massage. There are times when you have swelling in these areas (joints) because of other reasons that you can't help, like arthritis from an injury. In this case, a massage can alleviate any pain you might be having in your joints.

Types of Massage That Help

There are a few different types of massage to relieve joint pain and stiffness, including Swedish massage, which decreases muscle toxins and also helps to decrease stress. This type of massage also promotes flexibility and circulation and make you feel relaxed as you practice feeling better from your injury or swelling. This is also really good for your hormones.

Another type of massage to consider is deep tissue massage. This type of massage works with the deepest layers of your tissues, way down in your fascia and tendons where you’ll notice that you feel extra-flexible and relaxed afterwards. If you’re looking for a slightly more intense massage, then this is for you.
