Arm pain treatment

Arm pain treatment in Brighton & Hove

We use Clinical massage, the neck and shoulder girdle pain protocols together with the wrist and forearm pain protocol and myofascial release as a proven effective treatment method for pain down the arm.

 

Included here are: 

– Upper arm pain treatment, 

– Pain in neck and shoulder radiating down the arm treatment, 

– Shoulder pain radiating down arm to fingers treatment,

– golfers elbow treatment,

– tennis elbow treatment

 

We take a science-based whole body approach in our treatments, which are relaxing and effective.

 

Our treatments focus both on specific work around the problem area and broader work addressing restrictions everywhere else in the body that might be contributing

to the presentation. This treatment method creates long lasting results in a short period of time.

 

The clinical massage therapist will use tools like Myofascial release and trigger point work among others to obtain significant results in 1-6 sessions. 

 

We tend to see immediate results in 80% of cases and we expect to see significant results by week 4 in the majority of the cases.

 

1 hr length appointments

“If this is your presentation select Clinical massage as your choice of treatment. The therapist will go through a consultation during the first session where you can mention this.”

Our treatment method

During the first session, the therapist will carry out a postural assessment as well as range of motion assessment and pain assessment when needed in order to choose the appropriate treatment plan for you. These will be reassessed at the beginning of each follow up session as well as needed. 

 

The treatment method consists of advanced myofascial release techniques, trigger point work and advanced stretching techniques, combined and executed using a whole body approach whereby the whole body is considered as one interrelated unit and included in the treatment as necessary. This increases the effectiveness of the treatment and it produces long lasting results. It also means that the treatment feels relaxing.

 

There are several muscles from the mid back upwards that, when irritated,  refer pain down the arm and into the hand and fingers. For this reason and to incorporate all of them, we use a combination of the neck, shoulder girdle and wrist & forearm pain protocols. The therapist will use the initial assessment mentioned above to identify the muscles and structures that might be causing the symptoms and will concentrate most of the work on these areas although as mentioned above the whole body will be addressed as needed. 

 

The therapist’s focus will be releasing the pain levels and any other related symptoms the patient is presenting with, like in this case numbness and tingling, as well as releasing secondary structures that might be contributing to the development of the presentation.

Understanding Arm pain

The arm is one of the most clear examples of how referred pain occurs in our body. Although muscles that are part of the arm can directly cause pain in the arm when injured or irritated and we also address these in our clinic, a great number of cases of pain experienced down the arm, hand and fingers are a result of referred pain radiating from a muscle located somewhere between the mid back area and the base of the head, both front and back of the body, and not in the arm itself. 

 

These muscles with referred pain down the arm can cause a lot of pain and weakness, and also bigger trouble, specially because in a great number of cases they replicate similar symptoms to more serious conditions that are often misdiagnosed, sometimes resulting in surgery or years of chronic pain and pain relief medication.

 

The brachial plexus nerve network, for example, travels under the clavicle and chest on its way to the arm. The passage is small so an irritated muscle or restricted fascial around that area can cause irritation of the nerve and pain down the arm, hand and/or fingers.

 

Nerves are not always involved. Muscles like, for example, lattisimus dorsae or most of the rotator cuff muscles refer pain down the arm and into the hand when irritated or presenting trigger points. 

 

It’s the job of the therapist to assess the characteristics of the symptoms, as well as to identify, release and re-balance the structures that are causing the pain if that’s the case.
