Most of us either suffer from low back pain ourselves or know someone who does. It may be the result of muscle tension or strain caused by exercise, injury, obesity, and even poor posture. Whatever the cause, low back pain can be crippling. Massage targeted at the specific muscles, or muscle groups, which most often lead to lower back pain can do wonders to relieve the pain and increase the range of motion. Often the Quadratus Lumborum, Erector Spinae and the Gluteus muscles are the catalysts for low back pain. A trained therapist can lengthen these tight muscles, release trigger points therein, and often reduce or alleviate the accompanying pain. Moreover, massage increases blood flow and circulation, bringing more nutrients to the affected area and promoting healing. You should always check with your doctor before massage if you are experiencing severe back pain in order to rule out disc herniation or other serious issues. If you suffer from Lower back pain and need some relief, please make an appointment at your earliest convenience.
