Our Brunswick, GA Massage therapy and partners at Wellman Family Healthcare does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach that actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our Heroes for Health partners provide specific massage and muscular therapy. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient’s unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient’s range of motion, while also aiding in a patient’s recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!
Peripheral neuropathy is a result of damage to the nerves often causing weakness, pain, numbness, tingling, and the most debilitating balance problems. This damage is commonly caused by a lack of blood flow to the nerves in the hands and feet which causes the nerves to begin to degenerate due to lack of nutrient flow. Unfortunately, there are many causes of Neuropathy including Diabetes, exposure to chemicals or toxins, and spinal stenosis. Many Veterans suffer from Neuropathy and have even been associated with Agent Orange exposure for some Vietnam Veterans.
