I too have chronic back pain and I have tried PT, going to a chiropractor, medication (which I am not a big fan of), and many massage therapist.  I do agree that finding the right massage therapist can eliminate or reduce your pain.  I tried many before I found a massage therapist who would completely eliminate my pain.  If you need a GREAT massage therapist in Safety Harbor Florida I would HIGHLY recommend I Knead A Massage by Georgia.  I would be more than happy to share her information.....just call, text, or email me.
