Lower back massage focuses on muscles in the area of the back between the shoulder blades and the hips. It can be helpful for those who suffer from muscle tension, those who work on the computer all day, those who drive all day, or for anyone who has chronic back pain issues.
It can be disc herniation, inflammation, bone or joint conditions, pregnancy, kidney problems, sciatica, ovarian problems and many other issues that cause back pain.
The pain could also be from sitting or standing for long periods of time or by a pulled muscle from lifting something heavy.
Lumbosacral area pain can cause us to walk or move in different ways to avoid pain, which can, in turn, cause other muscles to be overused. So, finding a solution to our back issues is critical.
Compression or intense pressure on nerves in the low back can be especially painful.
Low back pain can be caused by a herniated disc, osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, fractures, or spinal deformities. So, be sure to address these problems with your physician if massage therapy can become much worse if not treated by a medical doctor.
