Massage for Spinal Stenosis

Massage for Spinal Stenosis

Massage for spinal stenosis can often be used to temporarily alleviate the discomfort associated with this degenerative neck and back condition.

Spinal stenosis, if not properly diagnosed or treated, may lead to chronic neck or back pain, which can limit a person’s daily activities, such as the ability to do chores, work or go out for an evening of fun. You can learn additional facts about what spinal stenosis is and why it occurs by visiting both our spinal stenosis and diagnosing spinal stenosis pages.

The pain of spinal stenosis is normally located in the neck or lower back but can radiate to the arms, hips and legs. Some flexibility may be lost and there can be discomfort when leaning backward. You also may experience cramping, numbness and tingling if you have spinal stenosis. If you’re not able to walk for long periods of time because of this condition, or you are physically unable to stretch or extend your back, massage may be beneficial for the negative effects that spinal stenosis is having on your life.

If you’re experiencing neck or back pain that you’re concerned about, contact your health care provider. He or she can determine whether or not the pain you feel is caused by spinal stenosis, and, if it is, prescribe various conservative treatments, including massage physical therapy for spinal stenosis.

Massage therapy for spinal stenosis can include:

  • Deep tissue massage, a massage utilizing direct pressure to release tension in your ligaments, tendons and muscles
  • Cranialsacral Therapy, a gentle manipulation of the soft tissue and bones of your head, spine and pelvis
  • Swedish massage which involves rubbing, kneading or stretching your muscles

On occasion, some patients diagnosed with spinal stenosis require more than non-surgical treatment like massage to live a fully functioning lifestyle once again. There are other options available for pain relief, including the state-of-the-art, minimally invasive procedures performed at Laser Spine Institute. Our procedures have quicker recovery times and higher success rates than other treatments like open back surgery.
