I have a question for you. I am just about to complete a diploma in Remedial therapies and have to complete a project on a health condition for one of my assignments. I’m doing lower back pain, as its so common and something that massage therapists see a lot of, 2/3rds of my clinic clients reported this sort of pain.
I’d like to know what the usual paradigm is for treating lower back pain which is not due to anything serious like spondylosis, ruptured disk etc in the allopathic medical community. The old paradigm seems to have been drugs and surgery, but a workmate of mine is who has spondylosis is being treated with physiotherapy and massage, mild exercise and carefully spaced rest periods. Is that now the usual treatment?
