Lower Back Pain Remedial Massage Treatment Plans

If you’ve been struggling with lower back pain, did you know that muscles could be a possible culprit? There are three muscles in your lower back that could potentially contribute to your discomfort: the quadratus lumborum, iliocostalis lumborum, and longissimus thoracis.

The quadratus lumborum is a muscle that helps stabilize your spine and pelvis during movement. When it gets tight or overworked, it can cause pain in your lower back, usually on one side. Poor posture, sitting for long periods, and repetitive movements can strain this muscle, leading to discomfort.

The iliocostalis lumborum is part of a muscle group that helps extend and rotate your spine. When it gets strained or injured, it can also cause lower back pain, stiffness, and discomfort on the sides of your spine. Improper lifting technique, repetitive motions, and overuse can contribute to iliocostalis lumborum strain.

Lastly, the longissimus thoracis is a muscle that runs from your lower back up to your upper back. It helps with spinal extension and rotation. When it gets tight or strained, it can also contribute to lower back pain, stiffness, and discomfort. Poor posture, repetitive movements, and overuse can strain the longissimus thoracis.

If you’re experiencing lower back pain, it’s important to consider the role of these muscles. Consulting with a healthcare professional, such as a remedial massage therapist, can help identify the underlying causes of your pain and guide you towards an appropriate treatment plan including deep tissue massage, trigger point massage therapy, myofacial release massage, functional cupping and dry needling depending on the specific area of concern we find in our assessments at the start of each Revive Your Body treatment.
