Therapeutic massage can be an effective treatment for chronic or sub-acute low back pain.
Ever wonder how a massage therapist treats low back pain?
In this short video, Lic. Massage Therapist-Derek MacMahon explains how he approaches low back pain.
1. Assess "tight" or painful areas through visual and tactile assessment.
2. Restore muscular function by "un-glue-ing" underlying restrictions and "re-setting" the nerve/muscle signal to reduce muscle spasms.
3. Complete the treatment by addressing the muscles that aid the low back. These include the gluteals, hamstrings, quads, & psoas.

The following excerpt was taken from David Palmer's "21st Century Workplace Seated Massage."
The future of workplace massage is tied to the economics of health care policy. At long last, corporate, governmental and academic policy makers have come to the conclusion that a health care system whose primary focus is sickness care is doomed to bankruptcy. They have concluded the ultimate foundation of an economically viable health care system has to be prevention and wellness.
This radical paradigm shift is stamped indelibly into the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010. While the media and partisan politicians were obsessing about the constitutionality of ObamaCare and its new framework for financing health care, mostly overlooked was the fact that the 954-page ACA legislation specifically “directs the creation of a national prevention and health promotion strategy.”
The law created the National Prevention, Health Promotion, and Public Health Council(National Prevention Council), composed of the heads of 17 Federal agencies and chaired by the Surgeon General. This high-level federal action group works closely with a 25-member Advisory Group on Prevention, Health Promotion, and Integrative and Public Health, also mandated in the legislation. Both of these groups are developing plans and recommendations that will impact every strata of society, including workplace wellness.
