Massage therapy for lower back pain - May 11, 2017 1:12:33 AM

I am suffering from lower back pain for about five years after the delivery of my triplets. The intensity of the pain keeps on increasing each day. When I consulted a doctor, he told me that the pain was due to lack of exercise.

I took some painkillers and had started exercising daily. This has worsened my pain. I even find it difficult to carry out my everyday activities.

I find difficulty in walking too. Driving is also a tedious task for me. I experience a sharp pain whenever I bent over. Bathing and getting dressed are also making my pain worse. My doctor referred me to a chiropractic clinic, which provides massage therapy from Toronto.

Can a massage therapy help in reducing the back pain? I can no longer withstand the pain. Somebody, please help me!

so you are asking a bunch of physical therapists if massage therapy will help your pain? maybe you should consider seeing a physical therapist.

massage is a very poor treatment method to resolve LBP, your Physio/Physical therapist has much more to offer.
