Hello I am new here

Hi I injured my lower back 7 weeks ago now but I had torn soft tissue and ligaments if started to feel better at 5 weeks
so went to see private physcio she insisted on a deep tissue massage I have been in nothing but terrbil pain since and that was nearly 3 weeks ago I was off all pain meds now I am back on them and she did alot of pressing hard which was painful along the spine so Now my middle back has tightned up very bad and hurts to and did not before the physcio My doctor is shocked at what has happened but I have spoken to others who told me torn ligaments and muscles should never have a deep tissue massage as they need to heal she has made me much much worse I now been signed off work and the clinic have showed me no compassion the manager just said if she massaged me id be in alot more pain than I am because she presses alot harder than the girl who massaged me I just wondered if anyone can give me any advice???feeling quite alone and sad right now


  • He said both and rest my point here is it was getting better I was off pain meds and moving better faster then I went to see a private physcio and now my whole back has gone tight and gone into spasms after a deep tissue massage why would that happen???she has aggravated my injury and also caused my whole back to go tight and into severe spasms I never felt discomfort or tightness like and now work has told me to go home and rest and said that the physcio should of never massaged my back knowing I have injury with soft tissue damage so I really do not know what to do nothing is helping this tightness or spasms its so un comfatable
