Should You Massage The Affected Gouty Joints?

Massage therapy seems to provide relief for most gout sufferers. However, majority of massage therapists believe that massaging the sore, gouty joints is definitely not a good idea. In fact, massage should be avoided if you happen to be suffering from a gout attack as it can do further damage to the affected joint. Remember, we are dealing with sharp crystallized uric crystals. It will add to the pain you are trying to endure.

During a period of inflammation, it would be best to rest the affect area. But in between gout attacks, receiving massage can be beneficial. Since massage is known to improve blood flow and blood oxygen saturation, it is wise to massage the affected joints to soften the tissues, get your previously affected joints back in shape, and increase much needed blood circulation to those gout ravaged areas.

While gout cannot be cured, it can be controlled with a number of natural remedies and treatments. Massage is helpful in the management of gout with the previously mentioned improvement of circulation to the affected joints and its surrounding tissues, which speeds healing time by reducing swelling and inflammation. This will also help limit spasms from tense muscles and joints and will reduce your pain in the future.

The Magic of Massage For Gout Relief

A very important and overlooked bonus of massage in general is the improvement of lymph drainage and flow. Because our bodies have more lymph and lymph vessels than blood and blood vessels – with NO pump like the heart to pump it all around – getting an overall body massage on a consistent basis is very good for helping to keep the liver, kidneys and pathways of detoxification and elimination clear and working well. A regular practice of massage may very well solve all of your gout problems.

☆ Bottom-line:  Massage should be performed by an experienced massage therapist to avoid any undue discomfort and for maximum benefit.  Receive a few massages every year and manage your condition the natural way.

“I know your pain. Let me help you kill your gout for good!  And teach you to advocate for yourself and take ownership of your gout recovery, by showing you how to live the gout-free lifestyle.” Two decades ago, Bert Middleton found himself diagnosed with gout. Like 8.3 million other people in the United States (approximately 4% of the population), he struggled helplessly with the physical, emotional, social, and financial impact that gout left unchecked can have on your life. Prescription drugs were of limited help… And the terrible pain of regular gout attacks left him unable to enjoy even the simplest daily pleasures. His marriage was suffering. His finances were spiraling due to the impact gout had on his ability to work. And maintaining a social life was often nearly impossible. Tophi surgeries left him in terrible pain.  And he found himself depressed … and angry … that gout was stealing years of his life.

Until one day, after hundreds of hours of research and self-experimentation, Bert finally had a breakthrough and created a blueprint for a way of living that would prove to be “the answer” to living gout-free for nearly a decade now. Today, Bert and his “Gout Wife” Sharon devote their evenings and weekends to educating other gout sufferers on how to live the gout-free lifestyle. Showing others his 911 Emergency Response Gout Recovery Plan for getting PAINFUL gout attacks under control in as little as 4 hours. And then, how to make daily choices that keep gout under control for GOOD! So you can finally start LIVING again!
