Massage Therapy for Surgical Pain
Massage therapy can be effective for reducing pain intensity/severity and anxiety in patients undergoing surgical procedures.
That was the conclusion of a collaborative meta-analysis of research on massage therapy for pain conducted by Samueli Institute, commissioned by the Massage Therapy Foundation, with support from the American Massage Therapy Association.
The review and analysis was published in the September issue of the journal Pain Medicine.
The study concludes that patients should consider massage therapy as a therapeutic option to help manage their pain and anxiety from surgical procedures.
