Massages and prolapsed discs?!

Posted , 3 users are following.

Been for another consultancy today, luckily there is no underlying problem and with time my discs will reduce in size and eventually go back into place! Yay!

But until then I have to put it with the great amounts of pain and put a lot of time and effort into exercise and such to help my problem!

I've heard a lot of people say negative things about massages and disc problems and not a lot of people saying it helped! most people are saying that it only aggreavated the problem? 

So im looking for some help, should I got for a massage or not and would deep tissue be too harsh on my back?

    Personally, I'm a great believer in Aromatherapy massage, obviously with a fully qualified therapist. The oils smell great as well as having natural healing abilities and the massage is more gentle. A good therapist will generally take a bit of history and have the ability to blend oils specifically for you. Obviously, a fully qualified masseuse would, I hope, only perform massage which would be beneficial to you however, it might be better to spend the money seeing a good Osteopath or Chiropractor. Whatever you decide upon, good luck!
