Soft Tissue Therapy for treating common low back dysfunction
Most people suffer back ache at some point in their life. You may be suffering now.
Very often the reasons for any movement dysfunction can be due to repetitive movement, overuse, sedentary living and improper movement patterns.
Posture as I have previously discussed can be a cause and taking steps to improve and correct this problem goes a long way to preventing the occurrence of a chronic problem.
However the most common causes of low back pain is lumbar lordosis, this happens when your low back has an anterior tilt because the position of your pelvis has been affected by dysfunction around the abdominal muscles and the spinal extensors causing a forward tilt of your pelvis.
Common injuries associated with this issue can be low back pain, sacroiliac joint dysfunction (SIJ), hamstring, quadriceps and groin strains. In time if not addressed can lead to problems above and below this point. Do you have pain in your shoulder, knee or foot that cannot be explained? It may be related to a low back issue.

Why I Use Soft Tissue, Sports and Remedial Massage Therapy
During the course of my 18 year career in the health, fitness and sport industry I have treated many physical issues from muscular dysfunction, chronic pain, posture related issues, stress, tension, injury and injury prevention.
The skill of using soft tissue therapy for encouraging healing, recovery, movement, muscular skeletal balance and relaxation cannot be over emphasized.
Massage is a natural treatment and has been used for thousands of years and is one of the primary methods for treating musculoskeletal problems.
This method is not without its limitations but from experience personally and professionally soft tissue treatment, massage therapy is often the missing link when administered in an accurate and detailed way.
