Standing upright requires the spine to support the weight of the upper body while remaining flexible enough to bend in many directions. The back’s complex set of bones, muscles and ligaments get a workout every time you move. Disks between the bones intended to cushion movement can slip, bulge or press on spinal nerves causing pain. Plus, disks wear and shrink as we age. If you have back pain, a good neuromuscular massage can help relieve the pain and restore your flexibility.
