Massage therapy is a very physically demanding profession. Massage therapists spend hours each day hunched over clients, often with little downtime between clients to take care of their health and posture. This leads to tight, achy shoulders and neck, low back pain, and even tension headaches. One massage therapist recently scheduled with Got Your Back’s Minneapolis mobile chiropractor hoping Dr. Noel Barrick could relieve her neck and back pain.
The symptoms that this Minneapolis massage therapist is suffering from are common symptoms from a repetitive stress injury. A repetitive stress injury is a condition typically caused by placing too much stress or strain on a joint or muscle. Repetitive stress injuries commonly associated with performing repetitive motions, or from maintaining an improper posture for prolonged periods of time. If left untreated repetitive stress injuries can cause permanent injury and disability. Examples of repetitive stress injuries include tight achy shoulders from sitting at a computer, low back pain and wrist pain from carrying heavy or awkward objects on the same side, shoulder or elbow pain from sports activities like throwing a ball or low back pain and knee pain from swinging a golf club.

With the use of chiropractic adjustments to realign the joints of the spine, joints and legs, combined with trigger point and massage therapy and the revolutionary Therastim electric stim machine, where you can actually feel scar tissue being blasted away, Dr. Barrick works with patients to resolve their pain.
