Young man performing self-massage in order to relieve back pain. Although massage is most effective when carried out by another person, self-massage may still be useful to alleviate pain and relax muscles. Back pain is one of the most common disorders which affect people at some stage of their lives. In many cases no exact diagnosis and treatment are made because the pain gets better by using analgesic drugs together with bed rest on a firm mattress or board.
