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
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
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!
