Over 80% of US adults will experience non-specific lower back pain (LBP) at some point in their lives and, over the past ten years, LBP has risen to be the second most common cause of disability in the US. The influence of LBP on a patient is significant, impacting the physical, social, psychological, and economic aspects of an individual’s life.
Despite the widespread nature of the condition, however, there has been little agreement in the medical community on the best way to treat non-specific LBP. Current treatments range from surgical intervention to the prescription of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) as pain relief, each with their associated risks.
With the growth in popularity of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) both physicians and patients are increasingly recognizing the positive benefits of medical massage as a treatment for LBP. Recent studies have shown that regular massage leads to significant decreases in disability and levels of pain in comparison with standard medical care, such as pharmacology and chronic pain education.
In conjunction with the growth of complementary and alternative medicine, massage is increasingly being recognized as a viable and effective treatment for a disorder that affects a considerable proportion of adults in the US. As a low impact and virtually risk-free alternative to generic treatments, massage offers proven pain relief for sufferers of non-specific lower back pain and comes with a host of secondary benefits.
If you are looking for a career where you can make a significant difference in people’s lives, and whose importance is increasingly being recognized by medical community, then call us today on (702) 403-1592 to learn more about our Massage Therapy School.
