An Integrated Approach to Lower Back Pain and Injury

Sports & Remedial Massage - Myaree

Lower back pain is a common condition that affects people of all ages but can be particularly debilitating for those who experience it on a chronic basis. While there are many treatments available, an integrated approach combining remedial massage with exercise physiology can be incredibly effective in reducing pain and helping with injury prevention.

Remedial Massage

Remedial massage involves the use of manual techniques such as soft tissue manipulation, trigger point therapy and myofascial release to stretch, relax, soften and lengthen the muscles in order to reduce pain and improve mobility. It also helps to restore balance between opposing muscle groups by addressing any imbalances or weaknesses that may have developed over time. As it promotes circulation of blood and oxygen within the body, it helps with healing and can reduce inflammation.

Exercise Physiology

Exercise physiology focuses on improving posture, joint stability and muscular strength through the application of specific exercises tailored to meet the individual’s needs. This approach encourages better coordination between the body’s major muscle groups which then allows them to work together more efficiently when performing activities of daily living (ADLs).

Through regular exercise, movement patterns become better ingrained leading to improved performance in activities such as work-related tasks or recreational pursuits. Combining these two treatments provides a comprehensive approach which addresses both physical and psychological aspects of lower back pain and injuries by targeting underlying problems directly whilst also building resilience, reducing stress levels and increasing self-awareness. A skilled therapist will be able to tailor an individual program based on their assessment findings with positive results being achieved if followed correctly over time.

Overall, it’s clear that combining remedial massage with exercise physiology provides an integrated solution for managing lower back pain conditions effectively. By taking into account underlying factors such as emotional wellbeing alongside physical health issues when designing a treatment plan there is even greater potential for success in achieving long-term relief from pain associated with general day-to-day activities or due to injury/illness related problems.
