Low Back Pain


Low back pain can occur because of strain or overuse, injury, stress, being overweight, aging, disc problems or a pinched nerve among other things. For mild or infrequent back pain anti-inflammatories are often prescribed. In severe cases surgery may be an alternative. Massage and gentle stretching can also be used to relieve back pain.


Massage is an excellent therapy for lower back pain. It often brings relief to long-time sufferers. Regular massage therapy can not only help alleviate pain, but increase mobility of the spine. In severe or long-term pain situations, a physician should be consulted so as to determine the cause and rule out more serious conditions.
