CONSENT YOUR BACK

One study found that massage therapy was more effective than traditional care for relieving back pain symptoms.

A study applied to 401 people with chronic back pain found that massage therapy was more effective than traditional care for relieving back pain symptoms. The study participants had no identifiable cause for their discomfort and had suffered from pain for at least three months. Patients were randomly chosen to receive a 10-week treatment of relaxation or structural massage sessions. The goal of the first was only to relax, while that of the second was to relieve back pain caused by musculoskeletal reasons. Compared to usual care, both groups treated with massages had similar pain reductions after 10 weeks. The benefits of massage declined at the end of therapy but, after six months, those who received the massages continued to function better than the people who received the traditional treatment.
