Nerve tension is pain that occurs because a nerve is being compressed or stuck in its surrounding tissue which prevents it from moving within its tract like it normally does. This can happen for a variety of reasons. If a joint has been immobile for a period of time it increases the risk that a nerve can get a little stuck.
Do I have a trapped nerve?
We all know that your joints move and your muscles contract and stretch. But did you know that your nerve tissue also needs to move freely and unimpeded?
Nerve tension is pain that occurs because a nerve is being compressed or stuck in its surrounding tissue which prevents it from moving within its tract like it normally does. This can happen for a variety of reasons.
Common examples of structures that can impede a nerve’s movement include:
Back Pain e.g. bulging disc
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Tennis or Golfer’s Elbow
Depending on the severity of the damage that is causing nerve tension, surgery may be necessary. However, in most cases nerve tension can be relieved through physical therapy such as osteopathy or physiotherapy, massage therapy and prescribed stretching exercises.
It may seem contradictory to stretch the nerve for treatment since it reproduces symptoms. However, if the stretch is done gradually and frequently within the client’s comfort tolerance, it will often improve the symptoms. Treatments for interfacing structures such as muscles, joints, fascia, and skin are also likely to be helpful, as are postural and/or ergonomic changes.
While most massage therapists don’t see treatment of the neurological system as a primary function that they perform, it is evident that the nervous system is involved in many pathological processes. A greater knowledge of the anatomy and mechanics of these structures may help alleviate problems in many cases that have persisted after significant interventions that should have helped.
Introduce topic of carpal tunnel syndrome and its prevalence
You’ve probably been there before. You’re playing your favorite sport or working hard at the gym when you suddenly feel a sharp pain in your knee, or your lower back gives out on you. Injuries are an unfortunate reality for many people who are active, but what if I told you that there was a way to prevent them? Physiotherapy is a form of treatment that can help you prevent future injuries by strengthening the muscles and joints around the injured area. In this article, we will explore how physiotherapy can help you prevent future injuries and help you stay active for years to come.
What is Physiotherapy?
As we get older, our bodies go through changes that can lead to pain and mobility problems. Physiotherapy can help prevent these issues by keeping our bodies strong and mobile.
Physiotherapy is a form of physical therapy that uses exercises and massages to improve our range of motion, strength, and flexibility. It can also help relieve pain. Physiotherapy can be used to treat conditions such as:
● You have arthritis and back pain
● You have been in an accident and have sustained injuries
● You have had surgery and need help with your recovery
● You are dealing with chronic pain
● You have a disability that makes it difficult to move around
● You are pregnant and need help with managing your pain.
Regular physiotherapy can help keep our bodies healthy as we age. It can also help prevent injuries by keeping our muscles, joints, and bones strong and flexible. If you’re thinking about starting physiotherapy, talk to your doctor or a physiotherapist to see if it’s right for you.
What Are The Benefits Of Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy has a number of benefits that can help you prevent future injuries:
Physiotherapy can help improve your motion. This is important because it can help you avoid injuries by keeping your joints and muscles healthy.
Physiotherapy can also help improve your strength and endurance. This is important because it can help you avoid injuries by making sure your muscles are strong enough to support your joints. Physiotherapy can help improve your balance and coordination. This is important because it can help you avoid falls and other accidents.
How Can Physiotherapy Help Prevent Future Injuries?
Preventing future injuries is one of the main goals of physiotherapy. There are many ways that physiotherapy can help to prevent injuries, including:
Improving your flexibility and range of motion: This will help your joints to move more freely and reduce the risk of injury.
Strengthening your muscles: Strong muscles help to support your joints and protect them from injury.
Correcting your posture: Poor posture puts unnecessary strain on your musculoskeletal system and can lead to injuries.
Educating you about injury prevention: Your physiotherapist can provide you with information about how to avoid common injuries.
Helping you to manage any existing medical conditions: Conditions such as diabetes, osteoporosis, and arthritis can increase your risk of developing an injury. Physiotherapy can help you to manage these conditions and reduce your risk of injury.
Physiotherapy can help you prevent future injuries in several ways. First, it helps to correct any posture or movement issues that may be contributing to your current pain or weakness. Second, physiotherapy can help strengthen the muscles and tissues around the area of injury, which can help protect against further damage. Finally, physiotherapy can help improve your overall fitness level, which will make you less likely to sustain an injury in the first place.
