On MyChronicPainTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with chronic pain, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Massage is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about massage:

"I have so much pain I can't sleep. Does anybody know of anything that works?"

"Looking forward to a massage next week. I have the best massage therapist!"

"A member shares how she deals with her tendonitis."
