Chronic Back Pain

There are different types of chronic back pain in lumber and thoracic area. Some pain results from postural issues causing an in-balance in muscles. Sometimes there is nerve compression involved which often causes a sharp pain and sometimes refers into the hip or down the leg. Nerve compression can be caused by spinal conditions (disc alignment, bulging discs, arthritic changes in discs) but is also often caused by compression from tight back and hip muscles.
Dry Needling can be included in the massage treatment and often helps to reduce the pain. Also Myofascial Cupping can be a beneficial addition to the treatment.
It is also recommended to do regular back and hip stretching exercises.
