This one of the most common complaints I see. Overwork, stress, poor posture and a sedentary lifestyle can all contribute to musculo-skeletal imbalances that can cause pain and tension.
Treatments will involve massage, gentle manipulation and stretching to help return mobility and flexibility and ease pain and tension.
If you are experiencing back pain, your doctor should always be your first port of call. Treatment can be adapted to help ease the muscular pain and inflammation from a prolapsed disc or from chronic or acute back pain, muscular strain or spasm and conditions such as arthritis or ‘wear and tear’ or tension and stiffness from sitting long hours in the office or the car.
Both lower and upper back are treated together with the gluteal muscles, hamstrings and hip flexor muscles, all of which often play a part in back pain.
