Exercise Enhances Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Plan

Exercise is good and beneficial. It goes hand-in-hand with chiropractic care of spine pain conditions of all sorts. Patients get to be a part of their own care and healing when they do their exercises. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation knows our Tonawanda chiropractic patients just want to get back to doing what they want to do, what they used to do.

Weak back muscles don’t allow fluid spinal motion in low back pain patients. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation doesn’t consider this helpful at all! What makes these muscles weak? Fat. With back pain comes more fat infiltration into the back muscles, muscles like the lumbar multifidus muscles which greatly influence the range of motion in lumbar spine. Fattier multifidi, less lumbar flexion. (1)

Researchers find that there is big payoff for doing a little exercise! Muscle strengthening activity done just two days a week reduces the odds of low back pain. (And this article, as a side note, suggests that smoking is also a powerful factor in your risk of getting back pain.  Recommendation: Don’t smoke!) (2) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation recommends simple exercises you can do in just a few minutes from the comfort of your own bedroom if you like! They’ll make a big impact. You’ll see!

Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers benefit from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively affecting the pain perception by increasing your pain threshold and reducing your pain intensity. (3) These exercises are not difficult, but they do work. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation will who you how to do them so you can feel the most possible back pain relief. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is with you, our Tonawanda back pain patient, throughout your whole course of healing with as much support as you need.

Back school is another such support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for working with chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are recommended over many other approaches. (4) Cox Technic, an evidence based system of spine care, is spinal manipulation that Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation chooses to use.

The chiropractic treatment plan is enriched when back school is included in the overall back pain rehabilitation plan. How? Back school fosters self-management, gives control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation tries to educate our back pain patients as to how and why their backs hurt and how to preclude or at least diminish the chances of future occurrences. A survey of patients who went to a back school in a chiropractor’s office showed 95% satisfaction with having gone to the course and 100% support of the doctor’s presenting it. (6) Tonawanda chiropractic patients at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation are some of the most spine-smart people around!
