What can massage help?


Another positive feature of massage that cannot be neglected is that it can be used to stimulate individual groups of muscles, which weaken as the technique progresses. I mean deep muscles of the back, which are responsible for the correct fixation and support of the spine. What is called "muscular system".
The fact is that usually in people who are overweight, the load on the spine increases several times. Over time, this usually leads to spinal deformity and flattening of the intervertebral discs. Despite the enormous resistance of the intervertebral discs to the intradiscal pressure provided for by nature, cracks gradually appear in the tendon ring over time with the presence of factors of obesity, which are called osteochondrosis of the spine in everyday life. Cracked tendon rings cause local pain. They are usually localized in the thoracic and lumbar spine. Men suffering from excess fat in the abdominal area are particularly affected. In this case, the fat mass is so great that it manages due to its weight to significantly enhance the physiological curvature of the spine in the lumbosacral region. The tummy pulls the spine forward, leading to its deformation. Often this results in the appearance of so-called Schmorl hernias, which manifest themselves as severe pains in the lumbar region. After getting rid of excess weight and during the massage, certain stretching exercises, it is usually possible to get rid of these hernias.
