Massage therapy can provide substantial healing and pain relief for many lower back problems. Specifically, for pain caused by a back strain, when the correct muscle is targeted, the pain can be controlled at its source—for quicker and lasting relief.
If you are one of the many people who suffers from lower back pain, the following are ways that regular massage for back pain can help you find serious relief.
1. Increased blood flow - Increased blood flow is a known proponent of muscle recovery.
2. Decreased tension - While muscle tension is needed by the body to maintain body posture and general movements, too much tension causes pain and muscle restriction, especially in the lower back and neck.
3. Increased endorphins - Endorphins are the feel good chemicals in the brain. Massage tactics including acupressure and trigger point therapy generate these endorphins, which are known to reduce pain and produce a sense of euphoria.
