Car accidents, invasive surgery, athletic training, a viewing of Wagner's 17-hour Ring Cycle—all of these can cause lower-back pain. Riverside Ergogenics Medical Massage’s licensed therapist Leslie Saxton wrangles with these problematic muscular structures by using intensive clinical-massage techniques. Before she begins exercising her massage prowess, she consults with the client to pinpoint the root of insistent aches. Leslie also advises clients on how to avoid pain in the future, such as the polite way to decline a back-breaking bear hug.
