That crank in the back, the mind-numbing pain in the lower back region of the body is one of the worst symptoms a person endures. Nothing is pain-free. Be it sitting, standing or driving. A doctor’s visit is in the cards. However, these days, doctors and specialists have been focussing on non-surgical methods to heal one’s back pain. Medication is given primarily to alleviate the initial pain and then rehabilitation methods are looked into.
Massages are one such form of rehabilitation options. Many still question the usefulness and healing powers of this form of therapy. One of the most common questions regarding this option: Does it really work?
