Low Back Pain – Acute Symptoms

January 15, 2017

Lower back pain is one of the top reasons people come to see me for massage. When you’re experiencing acute pain symptoms in the lower back it can be a little scary, sometimes anticipating the pain you know will come when you try to stand up can be terrifying. Forget about thinking about what you might feel when you try to walk!

Massage can help your acute pain, but it may be difficult to get in for a massage right at the moment you need it. And, lets face it, you still need to be able to stand up and walk to your massage!


Last week I posted a program for managing chronic low back pain, but today we’re looking at relieving your acute low back pain. Pain in the low back can be caused by so many different things, so if you’re experiencing acute or severe symptoms then please make an appointment with your doctor to have it looked at, and to ensure these simple exercises are right for you.

This exercise program is also available with instructional videos to guide you through each exercise. But the videos don’t last forever, you’ll have access to it for 3 days from the date of this blog post only! To make sure you get to see all the exercise videos before they’re gone like my Facebook page.

And to have your own personalised exercise program designed just for you book a 30 minute massage therapy appointment. Your massage therapy appointment will include discussion of your needs, assessment, and instruction of remedial exercises with access to your exercise program videos. If you want a massage as well make sure you book a longer appointment!

In health,
