Pain felt in the lower region of the back is usually caused by muscle imbalances in the lumbar region. The imbalanced muscles are either too long or too short which in turn pull and compress other structures in the area which ultimately leads to pain. One of the most common causes of these muscle imbalances is poor posture and improper ergonomics or movement patterns.

Therapeutic Massage Therapy can help reduce or eliminate low back pain by:

  • restoring balance in the muscles in the lumbar region
  • Increase flexibility and range of motion in the hips and spine
  • Restore tissue health in both muscle and fascia
