It’s no secret that massages are a common way to relax, rejuvenate and improve a sore throat.
In the US, however, massages have also been a popular way for people to unwind after a long day or even a marathon.
However, what’s less well known is that these massages can actually be a great way to relieve your sore throat and get the body moving.
A recent study published in the Journal of Pain Management found that massaging a sore neck or back is as effective as any other therapy.
“We found that when we massage the neck, the body will move it to an upright position and the sensation of the massage will increase, resulting in a stronger and deeper sensation, which is what we would expect for a better feeling,” said Dr. James H. Johnson, the lead author of the study.
“If you massage the back, the feeling is usually less than a massage.
We would also recommend that you massage a sore shoulder or back.”
So, if you’ve been feeling achy, it’s time to take a quick hot stone to your sore neck, and then apply a soothing massage to your back, neck, chest, and shoulders.
It’s a safe and effective way to get your sore back feeling back, and a great option for sore throats and other neck issues.
