Dr. Mark Kestner, doctor of chiropractic, has a column in The Murfreesboro (TN) Post about low back pain. He writes about why low back pain happens, the myriad of treatments that his patients have tried, and what he thinks is best for treatment and prevention.
To eliminate the pain, it is critical to correct the function.
Exercising, massage, stretching, walking and physical therapist mobilization can all increase the ability of the joints to function properly. Guided movement practices such as yoga, tai chi and Pilates can help. This is also the reason it is important to maintain non-strenuous activity if possible. Movement reinforces proper function.
Thanks for plugging massage therapy, Dr. Kestner.
