I'm a massage therapist and have a few clients with the same problems. Massage has not cured them however, it gives them great relief of the pain. Some have to come once a week, and some everyother week. Pretty much it comes down to what they can afford. You should also check your health insurance, sometimes it will cover massage therapy. In finding a massage therapist make sure you ask them how much schooling they've had, such as classes for treating wipelash, carpel tunnel, etc. I wish you the best of luck!! Maybe it'll help.
