Raise your hand if you like doing "core exercises"! Anyone!? How about "back strengthening exercises"? Not me. Well, if you don't want to be one of the estimated 31 million low back pain sufferers in America, then, you better suck it up, get a resistance band, and do these exercises.
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.
