Medical massages offer many potential health benefits to individuals who suffer from lower back pain. The massage therapy can increase blood flow and circulation, aid in the recovery of muscle soreness and soft tissue injury, decrease muscle tension, and reduce the pain caused by tight muscles. This therapy has also been known to improve sleep and flexibility in patients and the endorphins released also tend to have a positive effect on people suffering from chronic back pain.

Cold laser therapy involves a trained technician placing a hand held laser device over the area where the patients feels pain. The treatment can last from 30 seconds to several minutes depending on the physical therapists recommended course of action. The cold laser contains non-thermal photons of light which pass through the skin’s layers. The light has the ability to penetrate 2 to 5 cm below the skin. When the light is absorbed by the targeted area it results in the normalizing of damaged tissue and pain and inflammation relief and an overall reductions of healing time.
