Although poor posture, impinged nerves, inflammation and disk bulges are often considered the primary causes of back pain, other factors such as misalignment, injury, general wear and tear, and infections can also play their role in triggering back pain. Since back pain is a symptom, it is important that the root cause of the problem is identified first before proper treatment can be initiated. Using remedial massage for back pain is a safe and conservative approach to diagnose and treat back pain or neck pain.

A remedial massage session is is a great way to combat back pain, however, for more serious cases we may ask you to consult a medical specialist (doctor/surgeon) before seeking any type of massage therapy.

If you are suffering from back pain as a result of muscular imbalance (one group of muscles is more developed than the other group of muscles), strains (an injury to the muscle), or sprains (an injury to the ligaments), remedial massage for back pain is also a great option for maintaining the body for a healthy and pain-free back.
