Over the past ten years structured clinical massage techniques aimed at the myofascial structures of the body have become a common choice of therapy for people with low back pain (LBP) (Ajimsha, Al-Mudahka and Al-Madzhar, 2015), yet the mechanisms behind their effects remain unclear. The overall aim of this study was to determine the benefits of myofascial manual therapy through an evaluation of the possible mechanisms associated with changes to muscle activity and blood flow, in people with low back pain.
