My boyfriend shoulder hurts him really bad i'd there anything that I can do to ease the pain in his shoulders? Can giving him a massage help?

My boyfriend shoulder hurts him really bad i'd there anything that I can do to ease the pain in his shoulders? Can giving him a massage help?

Seems reasonable, but: Hard to say without more history, such as exactly where in the shoulder (muscles around it, or in the joint), trauma, and so on. In general, massage is safe, but if it causes more pain at the time, stop and have him checked out. Read more

Thai massage caused back to crack, is that good or bad?

Thai massage caused back to crack, is that good or bad?

Identify problem: It is not likely addressing the underlying problem. Most cases I see are due to sitters disease or gait (ex; foot position). But you need to identify the origin and rule out more serious causes. Any neurologic issues like numbness in the legs, no muscle weakness, no fever, no urinary pain, fever, genital discharge, acute trauma, insect bites, etc

Got a deep tissue massage, but right after I got bad chills that went away. Today my back hurts a little? Any ideas?

Got a deep tissue massage, but right after I got bad chills that went away. Today my back hurts a little? Any ideas?

It is ok.: Deep tissue massage can cause delayed muscle soreness so I would not worry about that. Give it another day or two and you should be back to your baseline. It is ok to ice your back three times a day for 20 minutes at a time. Read more

How to massage the neck or back safely when needed? Please can u give instructions or a video link? Can we harm ourself by massaging in bad ways?

Some Caution: The neck houses a lot of important structures is a short, relatively compact area which should not be trifled with. Before arbitrary massage you would benefit from knowing some of the important anatomy. There are many good anatomic guides but this link seems to give straight forward information.

My left arm has been hurting bad for weeks, it is not broken, it hurts almost nonstop, I can get temporary relief by a long massage, do you know why?

Hard to say: Pain in the arm could be coming from many sources - until you know the source, the best treatment may be elusive. Possible causes include trauma, neuropathy, arthritis, cervical disk disease, overuse syndrome, heart problems, and more. A thorough evaluation by your doctor is a first step, and some testing may be needed. Read more

Bad tension HAs w/ pain in back, by shoulder blades, neck, jaws, temples. No relief with OTC meds. Massage only help very short term. Any suggestions?

Bad tension HAs w/ pain in back, by shoulder blades, neck, jaws, temples. No relief with OTC meds. Massage only help very short term. Any suggestions?

ALL sensations=from: Interpretation in brain/mind. Plus mind/brain controls entire body starting long before birth. Except for heart, muscle cells only contract in response to direct signal/neurotransmitter to each individual cell membrane. Muscle contraction ↓es blood flow yet ↑es demand; thus sustained induces ischemic muscle pain/soreness; likely basis of pain. Study: John Stossel Pain, John Sarno, Robin McKenzie. Read more

Is it bad to massage my eyes when they get tired from computer use?

Is it bad to massage my eyes when they get tired from computer use?

Dry eye: Your eyes are getting dry while you are using the computer. Instead of massaging your eyes, try using artificial tears and taking a short break if possible. Warm compresses of the eyelid are fine but I would avoid firm massaging of your eyes themselves. Read more
