One cause of mechanical low back pain is tight muscles and/or trigger points (knots) in the muscles. In addition to tight muscles, many lifestyle factors such as irregular exercise, poor sleeping habits, reduced water intake, stress and repetitive work postures will also contribute to the problem, aggravating tension within the muscles and increasing pain and restriction.
Remedial Massage can be an effective and healthy way to manage mechanical low back pain. It can be used on its own or as an adjunct to other allied health treatments such as Physiotherapy and Chiropractic.
Your Remedial Massage Therapist will ask you about the quality of your pain to help determine the nature of your problem. For example, dull and achy is often used to describe a taut muscle with a trigger point in it, whereas sharp and piercing is often used to describe nerve type pain. However, some people will use the word sharp to describe quite severe, active, trigger points which can give you a similar pain.
Remedial massage has many benefits to your body as well as relieving your pain. It not only feels great, but it also reduces anxiety and depression, reduces blood pressure / heart rate and is extremely good for injury prevention. It releases endorphins, serotonin and amino acids into the body which works as the bodyâ€™s natural painkiller. It relieves aches and pains and releases tension in the muscles which will improve your range of motion. Massage also improves muscle tone and increases circulation, improving the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to all body cells, promoting well-being.
