Although massage is generally thought of as a complementary therapy, it is now being acknowledged by healthcare providers as a genuine method of helping in fighting back pain. It may be very helpful in the management of chronic back pain, but there is no proof to suggest it being beneficial to episodes of acute back pain. There are three techniques of massage therapy which is available to sufferers.
These techniques are hands-on technique where another person carries out the therapy, except for ice massage which can be performed by yourself or the use of a massage chair.
It has been proven that massage helps with managing to control pain as it lowers anxiety and depression which is what encourages the muscles to relax and helps the body to attain a better sleeping pattern. Blood circulation is also increased which allows a boost of nutrients to reach the affected areas (which is particularly helpful to muscular injuries and strains) and also can help increase the range of movement of the sufferer.
Massage also stimulates the making of endorphins, which are the body’s natural pain killers; they are sometimes referred to as feel good chemicals. Massage therapy can be anything from a gentle touch to a more rigorous exercise programme.
