Effective Tonawanda Back Pain Exercise: Bird Dog

Exercise for back pain: a common recommendation with good reason. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation individualizes the suitable back pain exercises for each Tonawanda back pain sufferer visiting Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation to maximize back pain relief, boost the supporting muscles like the erector spinae and multifidus, and reclaim function. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation also tries to find exercises that are simple, effective in multiple ways like the “bird dog” movement!


Chronic low back pain patients are not all made in the same way. There are numerous factors that impact their back pain state. Each chronic low back pain sufferer must be evaluated individually as your Tonawanda chiropractor strives to do. It’s a known fact that back muscle function differs from a chronic low back pain sufferer to another. Differences can be found via a thorough examination which Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is quite good at! The exam discoveries help shape an individual treatment plan with individualized exercise recommendations. (1) Be confident that you will be treated like the individual you are at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation!


Exercise is a regular prescription for back pain patients…and with good reason. Muscles support the body and spine. A review of published research on the effectiveness of exercise found that exercise was likely effective for chronic low back pain compared to no treatment, placebo, advice or education alone, electrotherapy, or usual care. Its effect was limited for function, but it enhanced pain and functional limitations outcomes. (2) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation thinks our Tonawanda chiropractic patients would agree that benefits of any sort like this for a condition that is reportedly the foremost cause of disability around the world for the past three decades or so, costing a lot in direct healthcare expense in addition to lost productivity, are worth seeking with some exercise. Start with one exercise (like the following one!) and build up to the basic 10 for back pain


Erector spinae and multifidi muscles often grow weak with back pain, but they are so critical for stability.  Bird-dog (aka quadruped opposite arm/leg) is a 3-way effective exercise: toning the erector spinae while strengthening the multifidus and the core as well. Start this by starting on all fours: knees and hands, stretching the left leg and right arm out level with the floor. Hold this for a couple seconds and repeat on the other side. Perform this 10 times on each side. (3,4) Have a chat with Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation before beginning any exercise though to be sure it’s appropriate for you!
