Relief from Travel Pain with Massage Therapy

Relief from Travel Pain with Massage Therapy

Americans love to Travel! 

In 2017 Chicago’s O’Hare Airport served 79.8 million passengers. Were you one of them? If you are like most Americans, you travel several times a year by either car or plane. But what about aches and pains associated with travel? When making your travel plans it is important to anticipate pain management so that you can enjoy your travel and time with family and friends. If you have a chronic illness or live with chronic pain, it is even more essential that you find relief from travel pain.

Why does Traveling cause Pain?

It’s no secret that maintaining any physical position for an extended period of time will cause muscle tension and joint aches.  The body was designed to move. Did you know that when your body is inactive for an extended period of time that your muscles begin to atrophy?   Without the opportunity to stretch those muscles, pain and stiffness can result, affecting…

  • Your Back
  • Your Neck
  • Your Knees
  • Your Calves

If you have chronic pain or issues such as sciatica or fibromyalgia, you know all too well that a car ride to visit family or a plane trip to a vacation destination is guaranteed to cause muscle tension and pain. But what if you could ease the pain and help prevent it before it begins?

How do we stay pain-free?

When we get sick, we are accustomed to seeing a health professional help us become well. When we participate in a strenuous sport, we work to eat well, stretch and train to prevent injury.

But when we suffer pain from situations like travel, we often don’t make the connection between our discomfort and preventative care. 

The best way to ease muscle pain and tension it is best to practice self-care through preventive care. At Therapeutic Kneads that means regular massages to keep your muscles relaxed and pain-free. 

Massage is a therapeutic way to reduce stress, assist in managing discomfort and aid in the healing process.  It’s like eating well or warming up before exercise – your body will get more attuned to being in a state of relaxation because you’ve trained the muscles to respond more positively to stressors.
