Study Finds Massage Therapy Helpful in Treating Chronic Back Pain

Posted Tuesday, July 5, 2011 by Christopher L. Thayer

alt text A story reported recently in the Seattle Times. In a study of 400 members of Seattle’s Group Health Cooperative with persistent back pain recently published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, the authors concluded that massage therapy provided greater relief for back pain when compared to conventional approaches alone. Those who received massage therapy spent fewer days in bed, were more active and took fewer medications. The researchers concluded that massage therapy stimulates injured tissues and may calm the central nervous system to help reduce pain and aid healing.
