(also Polymyalgia Rheumatica)
Myofascial release and CranioSacral Therapy are good for both conditions. Polymyaligia means 'pain in many muscles' causing pain and stiffness in neck, shoulders and hips and is also an inflammatory condition like RA. Joanna would never go near a joint when it is in flare-up mode, but gentle attention around and to other parts of the body is soothing and helpful. Regular Myofascial Release keeps Polymyalgia aches and pains at bay. CranioSacral therapy is good for RA as it can enhance fluid flow into joints without stressing them. It also boosts the immune system.
