If you have lower back pain, massage therapy by a professional RMT (Registered Massage Therapist) can ease your discomfort quickly. Rouge Riverís Pickering Chiropractic clinic offers therapeutic massage therapy for all patients whose condition requires care.

What can cause lower back pain?
There may be several reasons why your lower back hurts. It also depends whether you are experiencing lower back pain for the first time or whether you have an underlying condition.
If you donít usually have any problems with your back, the sudden back pain may come from an irregular motion you did, a minor injury that happened to you or other lifestyle related reasons, such as:

  • Worn-out or cheap shoes with no heel support
  • Bad posture
  • Non-ergonomic office chair
  • Old mattress
  • Lack of exercise / excess weight

There may be other, illness-related reasons behind your lower back pain. Especially for these cases, it is highly recommended to book an appointment with your chiropractor to discuss whether you will need regular massage therapy for your back pain.

Other possible but less common causes:
  • Lumbar herniated disk due to degenerative disk disease
  • Isthmic spondylolisthesis (slipping of the vertebra)
  • Various types of arthritis
  • Osteoporosis (compression fracture)
