How Massage Therapy Can Address Low Back Pain


From sleeping in an awkward position to lifting a too-heavy object to sitting hunched over our workstations, low back pain can be more than bothersome; it can be debilitating. It’s estimated that 80% of people experience this type of discomfort at some point in their lives.

Low-back pain is also considered the leading cause of disability worldwide, according to the Registered Massage Therapists’ Association of Ontario (RMTAO).

Alleviating Discomfort

While medication has its place, and plenty of people reach for OTC pain relievers to alleviate their discomfort, massage therapy can effectively ease pain naturally. This bodywork is a powerful tool for addressing low back pain, outperforming placebo treatments and relaxation techniques.

Chronic back pain sufferers have found relief through massage therapy, with benefits often lasting up to six months. Additionally, when combined with a home-based exercise regimen recommended by a massage therapist, the intensity of discomfort can be significantly reduced.

Improving Physical Function

In addition to offering relief, massage therapy can help enhance physical function. It allows people to remain active and stay in their jobs longer. It also improves a person’s range of motion, enabling individuals to regain their normal capabilities.

Uplifting Quality of Life

As low back pain can be wearing on a person, it’s often accompanied by depression, anxiety, and sleep concerns. Massage therapy can help to counter these symptoms, improving sleep and reducing anxiety levels. This is particularly crucial as anxiety can worsen disability and reduce the quality of life for those with chronic low back discomfort.
