Can I have a back massage after a spinal tap? I had a spinal tap 2 weeks ago and still have severe back pain. Nothing seems to help with the pain yet.

In brief: Should be ok

After two weeks, the area where the spinal tap was done should be healed.
Also, you could always call the doctor that did the spinal tap to be sure. Hope this helps, and I hope you feel better soon!
