RSI-symptomsI was just looking at a popular weather app on my smartphone. They now have an “aches and pains” forecast! Who would have thought?
Do you remember your Grandparents or Parents predicting the weather with their aching bones and joints? Even worse, are you predicting the weather with your joints and bones? Please leave a comment if you can relate!

NeuronThere are several types of hormones that are released during a massage and they can all be considered under the umbrella term as ‘feel good’ hormones. At the same time the ‘not-so-good-for-you’ hormones are reduced. The hormones that are released during a professional massage include; dopamine which makes you feel good and improves normal brain functioning). Serotonin (a general mood enhancing hormone), and oxytocin (a general feel good hormone nicknamed the ‘hugging hormone). The hormones that are decreased are the ones associated with short-term and long-stress and include; epinephrine, norepinephrine, and cortisol. All of these tend to lower the immune system and disrupt digestion and tissue repair.

Winter-Neck-PainThe winter season is in full swing and some of our clients here at Russ Medical and Sport Massage Clinic have been reporting more frequent headaches, neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain and stiffness.

Clients are reporting an increase in these painful conditions for a number of reasons!

 

During the winter months, our activities change. People are spending more time indoors reading, working on their electronic devices, (computers, tablets, gaming systems and smart phones) and watching more television. Unfortunately, we do not always practice the best posture while engaging in these static and repetitive activities. Furthermore, during the colder winter months there is a greater chance that our neck and shoulders can be exposed to cold temperatures while we are out-of-doors. This can occur while we are shoveling snow, commuting to our various destinations or enjoying winter activities in the great outdoors.

If you can relate to any these scenarios, here are a few suggestions you might want to keep in mind:

1- Be aware of your POSTURE. If you can catch yourself practicing poor posture, you can correct yourself.

2- Take occasional BREAKS from static or repetitive activities. Get up and move around for a few minutes, then resume your activity.

3- Keep your neck and shoulders covered and WARM when out-of-doors. Exposing these body parts to prolonged cold temperatures can contribute to the muscles becoming spasmodic and painful.

4- STRETCH the sore, tight, stiff areas of your body. Below is a chart of some stretches that may be helpful.

Some of us are winter people that revel in the activities that the season brings, some of us tend to want to stay indoors and hibernate through the winter season. No matter which you are, winter can be a lot more fun if you have less pain. Enjoy the season!
