Chronic Back Ache And Massage Therapy

This has actually become something to worry about for most people, as it hinders them form carrying out their daily activities.

Approximately 80 percent of adults experience back pain at some point in their life. In addition to physical pain, back problems also lead to more financial losses for the sufferer.

It can be quite annoying when you have to bend to tie your shoe lace or take your car key and then what you feel is a surging pain through your back.

Massage has been therapeutic for ages. In fact, many people enjoy the act of massage but only few understand that massage also aids in the reduction of back pain.

Massage is a less intrusive treatment option that carries little risk for the patient.

But how can it help? Studies have proven that massage can help individuals with chronic back pain with benefit lasting at least 6 months.

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