Saanichton Chiropractic Group: Low Back Pain, Yardwork, & Massage Therapy

Updated: May 25, 2023



Yardwork can be an enjoyable way to spend time outdoors and improve your home’s curb appeal. However, yardwork can also be a source of low back pain if it’s not done correctly. Fortunately, there are a few simple steps you can take to prevent low back pain and ensure your yardwork is done safely.

First and foremost, make sure to stretch before starting any yardwork. Stretching can help to loosen up tight muscles and improve flexibility. This can help to minimize the risk of injury when you’re doing tasks that involve bending or lifting.


Second, use proper form and technique when doing yardwork. For example, when lifting, keep your back straight and bend your knees. Don’t twist your body while lifting, and don’t lift anything heavier than you can comfortably handle.


Finally, take frequent breaks when doing yardwork. It’s important to give your body a chance to rest in between tasks. This will help to prevent fatigue and reduce the risk of injury.


In addition to following these tips, massage therapy can be an effective treatment for low back pain. Studies have shown that massage therapy can be just as effective as traditional medical treatments for relieving low back pain. Massage therapy can help reduce inflammation and muscle tension, increase circulation and help reduce stress. Make sure to find a qualified and experienced massage therapist who can provide the best treatment for your specific needs such as our therapists at Saanichton Chiropractic Group.


By following these tips and incorporating massage therapy into your routine, you can reduce your risk of low back pain and enjoy the benefits of yardwork without the pain.

Massage therapy is an increasingly popular and effective treatment for low back pain. Our therapists at Saanichton Chiropractic Group in Saanichton are experts in their fields with knowledge treating all types of back pain. In fact, studies have shown that massage therapy can be just as effective as traditional medical treatments for relieving low back pain. Massage therapy can help reduce inflammation and muscle tension, increase circulation and help reduce stress.


When it comes to treating low back pain with massage therapy, there are several different types that can be used. These include Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, and myofascial release. Each type of massage provides different benefits and can be used to address different issues.


Swedish massage is generally the most common type of massage used to treat low back pain. This type of massage uses light to medium pressure to promote relaxation and reduce tension in the muscles. The pressure is applied along the spine, hips, and surrounding areas, and the massage can help to increase circulation and reduce inflammation.


Deep tissue massage is another type of massage that can be used to treat low back pain. This type of massage uses more intense pressure to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. It can be used to reduce inflammation and break up adhesions, or knots, in the muscle.


Trigger point therapy is also a popular type of massage used to treat low back pain. During this type of massage, the therapist locates and applies pressure to specific points on the body that are believed to cause pain. This type of massage helps to reduce tension and relieve pain.

Myofascial release is a type of massage that focuses on releasing the fascia, or connective tissue, that surrounds the muscles. This type of massage can help to reduce tension and improve flexibility.


Massage therapy can be a great way to treat low back pain, but it can also be dangerous if done incorrectly. Make sure to find a qualified and experienced massage therapist who can provide the best treatment for your specific needs.
