The dilemma of modern-day pain management, back pain and massage

According to the CDC, back pain is the leading cause of disability in Americans under 45 years old. Last year, more than 26 million Americans between the ages of 20-64 reported frequent back pain. With numbers as astronomically high as these, one would expect there to be simple and effective treatments to alleviate the condition. Unfortunately, that could not be further from the truth. Most Americans are given 3 choices after they see their doctor for their back pain.

  1. Prescription Drugs

  2. Injections

  3. Surgery

All 3 of these options are very risky and could leave you worse off than you were before!

As you may know, we are going through a HUGE Opioid Epidemic in America where it's been formally declared a national emergency.

 All it takes is a simple Google search and you'll stumble across countless deaths and articles of families impacted by the addictive drug. The scary part is that most of the drug abusers were actually prescribed the drug after surgery or for chronic pain. They weren't trying to abuse it but the addictive properties of the drug dictate otherwise.


Empower & Heal

Back pain is a common issue affecting many individuals, often caused by poor posture, muscle strain, or injury. One effective method for alleviating this discomfort is massage therapy.

Massage can help back pain in several ways. It increases blood flow, which aids in healing by delivering oxygen and nutrients to the muscles. Massage also helps to reduce muscle tension and break up adhesions, the knots that form in muscle fibers due to overuse or injury. This process can help restore flexibility and range of motion.

Symptoms are just the tip of the iceberg

Moreover, massage stimulates the release of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers and mood elevators. This can help to reduce the perception of pain and promote a sense of well-being.

However, it's important to note that while massage can provide relief, it's not a standalone cure. It should be used in conjunction with other treatments, such as physical therapy, medication, and lifestyle changes, as part of a comprehensive treatment plan.

In conclusion, massage is a valuable tool in managing back pain. It offers a holistic approach to pain relief, promoting physical and mental well-being. Click here and schedule a session today to feel the results for yourself!
