Massage therapy provides relief and healing from pain for many lower back problems. When the pain is caused by a back strain, if the correct damaged muscle is targeted, the pain can be controlled at its source for quicker and lasting relief with the help of the best Massage in Chennai. There are two major muscles that play an important role in stabilizing and supporting your lower back and hips and they are the quadratus lumborum and the gluteus medius. There is a change in the biomechanics of these muscles due to fatigue or strain, several problems, such as lower back pain, stiffness, and decreased mobility can occur.
The quadratus lumborum muscle extends throughout the lower back and consists of many layers. This muscle will help you to bend backward and it is an extensor of the spine in the body. This muscle can become fatigued, stiff, strained, and painful when you perform certain daily activities such as leaning over a sink while doing some dishes, sitting slumped in a chair, running on uneven pavement.
Sometimes, you may feel some sickness, continuous ache with some degree of stiffness. It may also develop painful trigger and pressure point nodules, cause entrapment of nerves within its fibres, or be subject to direct trauma, causing lower back pain. In order to reduce lower back pain, the muscle must be massaged and stretched simultaneously by your massage therapist. The gluteus medius is a posterior hip muscle which is a hip abductor allowing you to lift your thigh and leg sideways to perform tasks. The biomechanics of the hip and spine are interconnected in which it is responsible for keeping your hips in a certain level while standing on one leg and cause a problem in your hip muscles which can cause pain in your lower back.
The gluteus medius muscle can become painful due to imbalance and/or weakness from several causes such as sudden, strenuous physical activity, blunt trauma hitting, previous injury to muscle, repetitive trauma to the muscle from running on soft surfaces. This muscle pain mainly affects your buttocks and lower back. The pain may be referred into the back of your thigh. Ask your therapist to focus on the quadratus lumborum and gluteus medius muscles when you decide to have massage therapy for lower back pains. Don’t hesitate to speak up and specifically request this type of massage treatment in SPA in Chennai if you have any pain due to muscle dysfunction.
