A Chiropractor in Vancouver WA Explains DIY Massage

Many people who suffer from back pain will seek out ways to find relief. There is no single relief method that will work for everyone. It might take a variety of treatments to manage pain.  Here are some of the ways to take your pain into your own hands:

  • Visiting a back specialist
  • Pain medication
  • Over the counter medication
  • Physical therapy
  • Routine visits to a chiropractor
  • Massage
  • Do it yourself massage

Massage is an option that some people find relaxing and it also can relieve pain. If seeking professional massage therapy is not within your budget, do-it-yourself massage might be an option for you.

There are a few ways to accomplish this task on your own. You can use ice to massage your injury, massage with magnesium oil, or use a foam roller on your back. Each of these techniques will be explained in the next blog post.
