Back massage for osteochondrosis

Quite often there are cases when visitors come to massage parlors in Riga complaining of back pain. Most often, the cause is osteochondrosis of the cervical spine. Massage for cervical osteochondrosis is considered one of the most effective ways to treat and prevent the development of the disease. This procedure relaxes the muscles that run along the spine, thereby allowing the discs to easily recover and even out posture. It should be noted that classical massage is unlikely to greatly affect the treatment since it does not involve all the massage techniques that are necessary for treatment.

Why does osteochondrosis occur?

Most often, osteochondrosis occurs in those people who lead a sedentary way of life, in particular, this applies to office workers, drivers and others. Because the back muscles are practically not involved, they begin to atrophy, which ultimately leads to poor circulation, swelling and further to osteochondrosis itself.

As mentioned above, massage for cervical osteochondrosis relaxes the muscles, but its functionality does not end there. Therapeutic massage improves blood circulation in the muscles of the neck, head, and spinal cord, and also eliminates unpleasant pain and a feeling of “tightness”.

How to do back massage for osteochondrosis correctly?


If you have osteochondrosis of the cervical spine, then you need a massage of the cervical spine (neck massage) and back massage. To make this procedure painless, it is better to immediately get a professional massage in Riga than to self-medicate at home.

Neck massage for osteochondrosis is done, starting from the cervical-collar zone, gradually going down to the lower back and then to the gluteal muscles. The masseur must carefully work out all the muscles so that the therapeutic back massage gives the necessary results.

At the beginning of the massage, the master performs light stroking movements to feel all the problem areas. Then the movements become more intense to find the sources of pain. It is important to note that the spine itself is not affected during the back massage. When performing neck massage for osteochondrosis, the master uses various techniques, including stroking, rubbing, tapping and patting.

After the back is warmed up, the master will begin to knead it and direct movements from the neck to the lower back.

After finishing these manipulations, the masseur proceeds to tapping and patting to stimulate the flow of blood circulation.

The massage session ends with the impact on the cervical-collar zone. Regardless of where the pain is localized, the massage of the cervical-collar zone is carried out as carefully and accurately as possible. The light movements at the end resemble a relaxing massage so that after the session you feel a lightness and a state of complete relaxation.
