The quadratus lumborum muscle group is not going to impress you with its size or prominence in the physique. But this small and somewhat hidden muscle group plays such a prominent role in normal body mechanics that without its functioning, the upright posture of the human body is impossible to maintain.

The shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint and therefore VERY mobile, and with great mobility comes the potential for great instability and dysfunction. If we sit in front of a computer all day, slouch our shoulders, and never work out our backs and the backs of our shoulders, we are asking for trouble! This is a big part of the reason so many of us have shoulder pain.

Trigger points in the scalene muscles have been attributed to a wide array of myofascial pain and motor disturbances, extending from head to toe. Trigger points in the scalene muscles are known to refer pain anteriorly, laterally, and/or posteriorly. Pain in the scalene muscles is routinely felt just about everywhere but in the scalenes themselves. RMA can help!

A lack of stretching, excessive sporting activities, weight training, extended periods spent bent over your desk, or long-distance driving can all lead to shortening in the pectorals. It’s not uncommon to experience numbness and a tingling sensation in the arm, hand and fingers when the pectoralis minor muscles are constricted, symptoms which closely mimic carpal tunnel. Massage can help! Book your session today at www.rubmassageaustin.com

Lots of times the gluteus medius muscle is an overlooked source of trouble in people suffering from lower back pain.
Very often this muscle is too tight or contains trigger points. Thus, it disturbs the force distribution on your hip as well as on your lower back and irritates your nervous system. The result can be pain.

Symptoms include aching and stiffness in joints, limited range of motion, swelling, redness and heat radiating from the joint. Intense pain is rare, but can be felt if inflammation is great and treatment has been prolonged.

If you have tendonitis, or a closely related problem, you may be able to accelerate healing with a self-massage technique called “frictioning” or “deep friction massage.”

Massage can benefit those with structural and functional scoliosis. It helps relieve pain caused by scoliosis. Massage relaxes the muscles of your back and body and helps improve flexibility. A 2006 case report by Michael Hamm, LMP, found massage to be effective at relieving pain, improving sleep and increasing the ability to conduct daily activities for people with scoliosis.
