Common Trigger Point #6 — Low Back Pain

The spot between your lowest rib and your spine, where the thoracic vertebrae end and the lumbar vertebrae begin is a junction of large stabilizing muscles that can cause lower back pain.

Low back pain is one of the most common complaints about pain. The people who are most likely to be affected by low back pain are those who must lean over a bed or a surface for long periods of time while working such as nurses, respiratory therapists and cake decorators.

A qualified neuromuscular massage therapist can relieve the pain caused by leaning while working.
