Participants in both groups received the same care except for BM. The intervention group received a 20-minute BM per day for five consecutive days. Sessions were administered by a certified massage therapist.

Results: BM could effectively relieve low back pain. Significantly reduction in the intervention group measured by Visual Analogue Scale (PVAS) than in the control group after the BM (B = -1.78, P < .001).

Conclusion: Nurses should assess low back pain symptom and develop alternative strategies to manage this symptoms during postpartum in order to increase maternal quality of life.
