If you are one of the many who suffer from arthritis, you know very well what is the pain and stiffness in the joints. Read our advices below on how to improve your joint strength and feel better.

How massage therapy for improving joint mobility works?

It is applied moderate or slight pressure that stimulates nerve below the skin and in this way signals are sent to the brain to reduce the pain. By massaging the scar tissue is destroyed, which occurs when the joint is inflamed. After touch of massage, the joint will be free from pain and freedom of movement. When the massage stimulates soft tissue, that leads to increasing lymphatic drainage. This eliminates the toxins that accumulate and crystallize in the body, resulting in the appearance of symptoms of arthritis. When these toxins are eliminated by massage, you will again feel full freedom of unrestricted movement. Revitalizing touch of a massage is a miracle for the cardiovascular system and blood circulation. It increases blood flow in the swollen joints which increases the flow of energy and nutrients so you will feel much more comfortable and you will be full of energy and feel revitalized.

The joint is a combination of two or more bones. If there is no muscle activity or immobilization – when the joint is in a cast, it is reduced circulation and nourishment of the joint. There may be degenerative changes – ossification so the joint capsule (joint armor) shrivels, loses the synovial fluid that is essential for normal slip of joint parts and thus disrupt normal movements of the joint. The massage can reduce the pain, improve joint nutrition, reduce swelling and to increase the mobility of joint. In addition to massage therapy for improving joint mobility, exercises also can help you. One of them is flexibility training. This is the ability to readily perform movements with large amplitude. It depends on the mobility of the joints, elastic muscles, tendons and stabilizers of the joints. The mobility of the joint is the most certain anatomical (joint configuration, the length of the stabilizer and the negative pressure in the joint).The three most important things of this exercise are reduce of the risk of injury, reduce muscle pain after exercises and speeds recovery and increase the joint mobility, those three are actually and the most important ones when it comes to your joints..
