Lower back pain and surgery vs remedial massage
The majority of Lower Back Pain can be eradicated without surgery or the use of mind-altering pharmaceutical drugs.
It is estimated 80% of Australians will suffer lower back pain at some point of their lives with a further 70% of the world’s population suffering lower back pain also.
Most back specialists diagnose lower back pain as purely coming from the spine or inter-vertebral discs. The terms slipped, bulged or ruptured discs, are all too loosely used to pinpoint the cause of pain for the patient. We, at Remedial Massage Solutions Richmond, are not most back specialists. We can help you resolve the issue you have with back pain.
“With nearly one million spine surgeries performed in the U.S. each year, and a failure rate of 50%, too many patients either undergo spinal surgery that is doomed to fail or are put on mind altering drugs to manage, but not end their lower back pain.”
Our Richmond clinic can help you without surgery.
“The reality is that muscles are the primary source of chronic lower back pain. And muscle pain can almost always be successfully treated without surgery or drugs.”

FACTS EVERYONE SUFFERING LOWER BACK PAIN NEEDS TO KNOW
- Despite what any specialist has told you, 97% of all lower back pain is 100% curable.
- Rarely is the pain coming from the spine and its inter-vertebral discs.
- The majority of practitioners treat the symptoms of your lower back pain and never address the underlying cause. Therefore, your pain relief is short lived and must be continually managed. We can help you resolve your back pain permanently.
COMMON CONDITIONS WE TREAT:
We treat a variety of debilitating back injuries every day. Many of which are chronic, others that have been in pain during an acute stage.
Some of the common conditions we treat include:
- Disc Bulge
- Facet Joint Sprains
- Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction
- Spinal Degeneration
- General aches and pain
Of course, causes for lower back pain vary. What is important to understand is that the length or level of lower back pain you are experiencing is not necessarily a sign of how bad your back actually is. However, there is a solution (a remedial massage solution) to a bad back, to long-term post-injury symptoms, regardless of whether the back pain is 3 months old or 3 decades old. The solution is to address strength imbalances, address postural imbalances, remove inflammation and take pressure away from the spine. You will be amazed at how quickly our techniques have eradicated acute and chronic lower back pain in people who have been told they will have to manage their back pain for the rest of their lives.
WHAT CAUSES CHRONIC LOWER BACK PAIN?
Common causes include:
- Poor Posture
- Lack of core stability and strength
- Muscle weakness
- Muscle tightness
- Joint restriction/stiffness
- Large amount of sitting, lifting, bending
- Bio-mechanical imbalances
- Being overweight
- Poor mobility
WHY THE PAIN REMAINS PRESENT IN CHRONIC LOWER BACK PAIN SUFFERS
Before your lower back pain started, when you could move without restriction and discomfort, the muscles designed to support your spine and pelvis was subconsciously active. Research shows that after trauma, these muscles effectively “switch off”. With these postural muscles gone, other muscles compensate – this is why you may find that your pain spreads.
The reason why back pain remains present for years post-lower back injury, is as simple as this; regardless of all the diagnosing, scans, and symptom treating, if your postural muscles are weak, not active, or both, your back pain will not subside causing chronic lower back pain.
HOW TO ERADICATE THE BACK PAIN FOR GOOD WITH REMEDIAL MASSAGE
The key to eliminating chronic lower back pain is to address the true underlying cause of the back pain. Remove all complicated medical jargon and simply look at what is causing the back pain:
- If you have muscular imbalances, you have bad posture.
- If you have bad posture you overload certain areas.
- Overload an area and you are in pain.
To eliminate lower back pain one must rid the body of muscular imbalances and return it to its symmetrical state i.e. perfect posture. Restore symmetry and you are pain free. We can educate you so you never have to suffer lower back pain again.
