Treating Chronic Low Back Pain With Remedial Massage

Treating Chronic Low Back Pain With Remedial Massage

This week I have seen a number of patients with chronic low back pain. The thing which they are most concerned with is whether their low back pain can be managed with massage and exercise.

If your low back pain has passed from the acute stage and into chronic it is more difficult but not  impossible to treat. We start with an assessment of your condition. Depending on the circumstances of your particular situation. Whether your GP has already referred you for an x-ray or MRI scan and what the results were. What type of work you do and whether you can make any adjustments to that. How much exercise you do and how it affects your condition.

Often patients are just confused as to what is the best course of action to take, they have lost faith in their body and its ability to perform the tasks they ask of it everyday.

As a remedial massage therapist in Ely, my task is to help you back to feeling confident that you can do most of the things you need to do on a daily basis. Progressing gradually through a course of detective work and putting in place a treatment plan for remedial massage treatment and then a system for managing your body and keeping it in working order, we will get you back on your feet again.  I believe massage is a wonderful therapy, your muscles make up a huge proportion of your body. They deserve to be looked after and if you look after them they will serve you well.
