Hi @janeym and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect.

Have you checked out this discussion on Myofascial Release Therapy (MFR) for treating compression and pain?

Are you getting the massages from a therapist at the hospital or the pain clinic? It's important that your therapist is familiar with your medical history so that they don't hurt you rather than help you.

Hi Amanda
Thank you. No the therapist was local. My Pain Dr said to give them a try. It is a highly recommended clinic. I provided an overview of my history but he did not want to many details. Just examined my and started. It didn't hurt too much except one trigger point. The next day I had a big urge to stretch and that might have not been a good idea. The past 2 days I am very sore and stiff. I thinking of postponing the one scheduled for this week.
I am just not sure how I should feel after this massage. I had lots before my chronic pain set in about a year or so. I appreciate your comment about hurt more than help…
