Lower Back Pain
Have you been suffering from lower back pain? Soft tissues around the spine also play a key role in lower back pain. There is a large and complex group of muscles that work together to support the spine, help hold the body upright and allow the trunk of the body to move, twist and bend in many directions.
If you live in Somerville, Bridgewater, Raritan, Branchburg, Hillsborough or Flemington and you are suffering from Lower Back Pain, massage therapy can help alleviate your pain.
Lower Back Pain
Back muscles, like any other muscle in the body, require adequate exercise to maintain strength and tone. While muscles like the gluteals (in the thighs) are used any time we walk or climb a step, deep back muscles and abdominal muscles are usually left inactive and unconditioned. Unless muscles are specifically exercised, back muscles and abdominal muscles tend to weaken with age.
Using a combination of massage therapy and exercise, Lower Back Pain can be relieved. When the facet joints or certain other structures in the spine become injured or inflamed, the large back muscles can spasm and cause low back pain and marked limitation in motion. The result can be lower back pain.
An episode of lower back pain that lasts for more than two weeks can lead to muscle weakness (since using the muscles hurts, the tendency is to avoid using them). This process leads to disuse atrophy (muscle wasting), and subsequent weakening, which in turn causes more back pain because the muscles of the back are less able to help hold up the spine.
Massage Therapy can relieve lower back pain and will enable you to exercise those muscles to increase their strength, ultimately resulting in complete relieve of lower back pain.
