Back pain aruba

Back pain is a very common complaint. According to the Mayo Clinic, USA, approximately 80% of all Americans will have low back pain at least once in their lives. Back pain is a common reason for absence from work, or visiting the doctor’s.

The human back is composed of a complex structure of muscles, ligaments, tendons, disks and bones – the segments of our spine are cushioned with cartilage-like pads. Problems with any of these components can lead to back pain. In some cases of back pain, its cause is never found.

Strain – the most common causes of back pain are:

  • Strained muscles
  • Strained ligaments
  • Lifting something improperly
  • Lifting something that is too heavy
  • The result of an abrupt and awkward movement
  • A muscle spasm

Neck Pain Aruba

Neck Pain is an overuse syndrome or a repetitive stress injury, involving the head, neck and shoulders. Resulting from excessive strain on the spine from looking in a forward and downward position at any hand held mobile device, mobile phone, video game unit, computer, mp3 player, e-reader. This can cause headaches, neck pain, back pain, shoulder and arm pain, breathing compromise, and much more. This position strains the muscles in the neck and the pain can go all the way down the spine to the lower back.

“Text Neck” is not only appearing in adults but there has been an increase of kids with text neck symptoms. Doctors have also started to see increased curvature in the spine – especially in kids.

Posture work for you and your kids is a priority ..

Aruba Massage

Oct. 26, 2005 — For the treatment of pain, Americans rate MASSAGE as highly as MEDICATION, a new survey shows.

It shows that one in five U.S. adults got a therapeutic massage in the last year. Three-fourths of them would recommend it to others — one reason for the body therapy’s growing popularity.

Among those who actually had a massage in the past year, 28% say massage therapy gives them “the greatest relief from pain.” Another 28% say medication gives them the greatest relief. Chiropractic comes in third at 11%, followed by 8% who got the most pain relief from physical therapy, 3% who said acupuncture was best for their pain, and 1% whose pain best responded to biofeedback.

Survey Findings

The survey, conducted by Opinion Research Corp. International in Princeton, N.J., surveyed a national sample of 1,014 U.S. adults. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3%. It found that:

  • 90% of Americans feel massage is good for a person’s health.
  • 93% agree with the statement that massage can be effective for pain relief.
  • Use of massage in people age 65 and older has tripled from 4% in 1997 to 15% in 2005.
  • 22% of Americans had a massage in the past year; 34% had a massage in the last five years.
  • 73% of those who had a massage would recommend it to a person they know.
  • 46% of respondents at some time had a massage to relieve pain.
  • Among respondents who discussed massage with their health care provider, 57% said this health professional strongly recommended massage or encouraged them to get a massage.

Aruba sport massage


Massage, applied skillfully, is the most effective therapy for releasing muscle tension and restoring balance to the musculo-skeletal system. Received regularly this may help athletes prevent injuries, which might otherwise be caused by overuse. A constant build up of tension in the muscles from regular activity may lead to stresses on joints,ligaments, tendons, as well as the muscles themselves.

These muscles imbalances may develop and often go undiagnosed until they are serious enough to cause the athlete discomfort or impede performance. The skilled massage therapist will be able to detect variations in the soft tissues and by using the correct techniques, help the sports person maintain a much healthier physical state.

It may therefore be reasonably claimed that one of the greatest benefits of sports massage is in helping prevent injury.

Whiplash ..

Rear-ended automobile accident victims will recognize this condition.Whiplash is a soft tissue injury to the neck. It can affect intervertebral joints, discs, and ligaments,cervical muscles, and nerve roots.

It occurs when your head suddenly moves backward, then forward in an extreme motion, pushing neck muscles and ligaments beyond their normal range of motion.

This condition ranges from mild to severe, depending on the intensity of the whipping of the head at impact.

Sometimes the injury may not appear until a day or two after the incident. On the other hand, more severe whiplash injuries, accompanied by severe debilitating pain, can present symptoms immediately.

Often the symptoms include headache, dizziness , a burning sensation in the neck, shoulder and back, and fatigue from lack of sleep.

Treatment ranges from anti-inflammatory pain medication and generally some form of physical therapy to restore range of motion to the affected muscles and ligaments.
