Whether you lead an active or sedentary lifestyle, you may experience many different types of injuries. Massage therapy can help with healing faster by improving circulation, breaking down scar tissue, and lengthening the tissues as they heal.
Here are some of the most common injuries massage therapy could help with.
1. Lower back pain
Given the large percentage of the population that work an office job, it’s no surprise that lower back pain is so common. When you’re seated, you’re adding pressure to your spine and back muscles. This pressure increases if you’re like the greater majority and slouch or fail to maintain a good posture.
You can avoid the onset of lower back pain by maintaining good posture and using an ergonomic chair that’s adjusted to your body shape. A sit-stand desk or standing desk can also be beneficial. If you’re already struggling with back pain, check in with a massage therapist about how you can heal from the condition.
