Can Massage Help Lower Back Pain?
Aching lower back pain can be debilitating and it can be a sign that something is wrong, like a strained muscle or ligament. However, it can also be caused by external factors, such as poor posture or stress. Massage therapy has been shown to help manage both acute and chronic lower back pain by relaxing the muscles, improving blood flow to the area and reducing inflammation in damaged tissue
What Is The Most Common Reason For Lower Back Pain?
Lower back pain affects over two-thirds of the population and is one of the most common reasons for seeking medical attention. There are many causes, including muscle tension, muscle spasms, or overuse (heavy lifting) injuries. This can cause poor posture and prevent good breathing habits, which increases stress on your lower spine. Lower back pain can be treated with some simple techniques that help to relieve stress and tension, but it is important to identify exactly what caused your condition.
What Is The Fastest Way To Relieve Lower Back Pain?
Massage therapy is a hands-on modality that uses gentle movement to stretch connective tissues and allow your body to function at its best. Massage therapy can improve circulation, relieve pain and tension, reduce stress and anxiety, and help prevent injuries by improving range of motion and flexibility and can be an effective treatment for lower back pain. Certain muscles like the core, and glutes can also be really beneficial in restoring functionality to the hips and low back.
What Type of Massage Should I Get For Lower Back Pain?
Different types of massage have their own benefits and limitations, which depend on your needs and preferences. Deep-tissue massage has been found to help lower back pain. Myofascial release can also help relieve muscle tension, improve circulation and reduce stress. All are offered here at IMMERSE Modern Massage.
Massage Can Help Manage and Decrease Lower Back Pain and Other Associated Symptoms
Massage, although highly beneficial for all types of muscle pain, is not a cure for lower back pain. A massage can help relieve symptoms and reduce your overall levels of discomfort associated with LBP (lower back pain) but it is still important to have regular medical checkups and treatment if necessary in order to ascertain the cause of your lower back problems and resolve the issue.
A massage can help to loosen stiff muscles, improve joint range of motion, and increase your body’s overall flexibility through the process of increasing circulation (rupturing those adhesions that occur in the muscles and tendons) to your back region by allowing for a deeper penetration into them when the therapist presses on them with their fingertips.
