Back Pain and Massage Therapy at The Root of Wellness in Southfield, MI

About 80% of people suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. Back pain is the second most common reason for visits to the doctor's office, outnumbered only by upper-respiratory infections. In fact, it is estimated that low back pain affects more than half of the adult population each year and more than 10% of all people experience frequent bouts of low back pain.

The susceptibility of the low back to injury and pain is due to the fact that the low back, like the neck, is a very unstable part of the spine. Unlike the thoracic spine, which is supported and stabilized by the rib cage. This instability allows us to have a great deal of mobility to touch our toes, tie our shoes or pick something up from the ground, but at the cost of increased risk of injury.

Many people suffering with back pain come in regularly for a massage to help ease the tension in their back. Massage therapy is a natural approach to relieving the pain so you can return to yourself. Contact our office to schedule your next appointment or Click here to Book Online.
