Lower back pain is one of the most prevalent sources of pain and discomfort around, setting Americans back as much as fifty billion dollars each year—if not more.
With the rising cost of healthcare, it’s no wonder that massage therapy and other price-conscious solutions have become increasingly popular among those in search of relief.
What kinds of bodywork reign supreme? We turn to our network of professional therapists to discuss how various massage modalities can reduce and, in many cases, eliminate lower back pain.
Lower back pain is often a symptom of a larger structural imbalance in the body, caused by inefficient movement patterns, emotional trauma or an accumulation of tension and stress. Says Zeel Expert Minki Kim, structural integration can re-align the body’s major structures, including the head, neck, shoulders, hips, knees and ankles. Structural integration doesn’t just correct poor posture to address lower back pain, he adds; it can result in a feeling of rejuvenation and a new found sense of bodily awareness too.
Because lower back pain cannot necessarily be blamed on any single muscle group, Zeel Expert Jennifer Forte recommends approaching the issue in a few different ways. With neuromuscular therapy, a form of soft tissue manipulation, Jennifer first works the entire back as well as the glutes, hamstrings and calves. When tight, Jennifer explains, these muscles can cause tension and result in lower back pain.
Deep Tissue Massage.
The application of deep pressure to targeted muscles can often lead to the release of balled up, tense or particularly tight muscles. Zeel Expert Kimberly Dean suggests that, in many cases, lower back pain can be traced to the gluteal region and the erector muscles that run up and down the back. Release these muscles, and you might just relieve your lower back pain.
