Back pain is one of the leading causes of disability across the globe. For some, it may be temporary, while many others are living with chronic back pain. If you’re looking for an alternative to pain medication, then massage could be the solution.
Thankfully, few things feel better than a healing touch, and massage has benefits that go beyond just releasing tight muscles.
Massage manipulates and releases the soft tissues of the body. The goal of this manipulation is to promote relaxation and stress relief while easing pain. And furthermore, massage stimulates and promotes balance in the nervous system, often linked with chronic pain. The result is an overall feeling of well-being.
A systematic review of studies shows that massage for pain management is strongly recommended. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4925170/) This review examined 60 high-quality studies and found massage effective in treating both pain and the anxiety that accompanied it.
