Deep-tissue massage for lower back pain

Many of us have dealt with lower back pain at some point. Whether you love working out, enjoy active weekends, or just want to stay fit, lower back strain is something many people go through. This pain can come from muscle imbalances, bad posture, or overdoing it in physical activities. These issues can affect our daily lives and put a damper on the things we enjoy.

Deep-tissue massage can help manage lower back pain. Unlike a usual relaxing massage, like Swedish massage, deep-tissue massage goes deeper, reaching the muscles and connective tissues underneath. This method is designed to release chronic muscle tension and enhance your ability to move – all important factors in easing lower back discomfort.

How deep-tissue massage helps:

The effects of deep-tissue massage can be physical and psychological. In the lower back, massage stimulates the blood vessels, collagen fibres, muscle and tendon tissue, and nerve cells and can help with:

  • Reduce stiffness in the muscles and tendons
  • Improve tissue elasticity and increase the range of motion of joints
  • Decrease inflammation and swelling in the soft tissues
  • Reduce scar tissue formation
  • Influence blood flow in the muscles, which in turn promotes nutrient exchange and removal of toxins, decreasing pain.

Deep-tissue massage also increases the levels of endorphins, serotonin, and dopamine: hormones that help decrease pain, regulate sleep and mood and promote relaxation.
