Medical Massage for Back Pain

Do you sit in an office chair at a desk for most of the day? Does this cause your muscles and back to feel stiff resulting in chronic back pain throughout the rest of the day? You deserve to live a life that is pain free. Investing in a medical massage is an effective way to take care of your back pain. Here at Therapeutic Medical Massage, Aruna utilizes targeted therapeutic medical massage techniques that have been clinically shown to significantly reduce pain and promote healing. The following are the two types of medical massages that can help reduce and alleviate back pain.

Chair Massage

A chair massage is a great way to relieve back pain. A chair massage therapist can address tight muscles and provide relief. Have you observed a coworker working at the computer desk hunched over for hours? People who are working with computers haven’t had an opportunity to relax their lower back muscles when they have been in that posture for extended hours.

Receiving a chair massage relaxes the tight, shortened muscles in your back. As a result, a massage brings oxygen back into those muscles. This makes an individual more productive at work. It increases the flow of vital energy and alleviates problems like carpal tunnel. By using thumbs to walk along the spine on your back, a chair massage loosens your back muscles, balances the energy, and increases blood flow to organs.

Deep Tissue Massage 

A deep tissue massage is another great way to relieve back pain. During a deep tissue massage, you can ask your massage therapist to focus on your back in order to alleviate your back pain. This will allow the deep tissues in your back to feel more relaxed and loosened. A deep tissue massage is also a great way to relieve stress from your back and body. Please feel free to inform your massage therapist if the pressure the therapist applies is comfortable or not.

Back pain can become a chronic problem if you do not take the time and necessary steps to address the problem. Whether you are sitting in an office chair for too long or move the wrong way thus irritating your back, investing in a massage is an excellent way to reduce the amount of back pain that you are experiencing in your everyday life. The effectiveness of a massage for back pain means you can start to live a life with less physical pain. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, the different types of medical massage can help you feel better. Whether you’re looking for ways to relax, reduce pain, or improve your posture, medical massage can help. Interested in medical massage? Call the office to schedule your appointment today.
