When the massage can help with back pain?

Back pain is a widespread problem among people. Muscle spasms make you feel uncomfortable. If we exclude physical activity from our lives and continue to load the same back muscles, very soon the spine begins to hurt, even if the person is absolutely healthy.

When a massage is necessary…
Unpleasant feelings can also occur due to long sitting at the computer. In this case, the static load has a negative impact on well-being, not physical. Overcooling or stress could be an additional factor which increases the likelihood of developing chronic spinal pain. In order to relieve unpleasant feelings, reduce the risk of diseases and simply improve health, it is necessary to take massage procedures. Back treatment is effective for the following symptoms and diseases:

  • Back pain.
  • Radiculitis.
  • Osteochondrosis.
  • Myositis.
  • Intervertebral disc hernia (depends on stage).
  • Elevated muscle tone.
  • Scoliosis.
  • Recovery process after injuries.
  • Weak immune system.
  • Chronic tiredness.

Who should do the massage…
Undoubtedly, a masseuse must have special skills and a certificate to perform such procedures. At the very beginning, a good therapist should certainly ask about the patient's chronic diseases and if so, which ones. Also, questions about the existence of any special prescriptions of the doctor will certainly be asked. 

When procedures are not allowed...
Only at first glance it may seem that massage is quite common and to do it does not require special knowledge, but the inexperience of the therapist or the presence of any contraindications can not only bring discomfort, but also real harm. Therapy is not desirable when:

  • Patient under the influence of alcohol.
  • Lymph nodes inflamed.
  • Increased fever.
  • Inflammatory processes in the body.
  • Bleeding and open wounds.
