While many enjoy a massage as a way to relax, others use it as an effective way to relieve pain.
Cara Frye suffered from migraines for 10 years due to painful nerve problems and spasms in her right shoulder that traveled up into her neck and head.
Frye recently had two shoulder surgeries, and her doctor then suggested massage therapy to relieve her pain.
Mercy Medical Center pain management specialist Dr. David Maine said for patients like Frye, massage can bring good results.
