Lower Back Pain: How Massage Can Help Treat One of the Most Common Forms of Back Injury

Lower-back pain, or pain in the part of the back between the ribs and the legs, is one of the most common complaints of discomfort.

 

It is the most common cause of job-related disability and a major reason for missed work. While most back twinges go away on their own after a few days, many people suffer from chronic back pain.

 

In a recently published article entitled, “Can Therapeutic Massage Help Relieve Back Pain?” author and expert, Mary Rodts, writes:

 

“Ever had a back massage? If you are one of the millions of back pain sufferers, you might want to consider this form of therapy to help relieve your pain,” added that massage is a popular therapy that helps millions of people with a wide variety of spinal conditions.

 

“Using hands or specialized tools, a massage therapist kneads, rubs, and strokes the affected muscles to increase blood flow (circulation) throughout the body. This, in turn, delivers oxygen and nutrients to the muscles and helps eliminate any acids or other waste products that accumulate there, thereby relieving pain,” she writes.

 

About 80 percent of people in the United States experience at least one bout of lower-back pain in their lives, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. The most common form, which accounts for about 90 percent of all cases, is what's called "common nonspecific back pain.” Twisting or lifting a heavy load the wrong way can sprain or strain the muscles and ligaments in the back, causing acute back pain.
