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. Layden Chiropractic incorporates exercise into the chiropractic treatment plan for all our Plainville patients to get them back to enjoying the quality of life they want.

Weak back muscles don’t allow fluid spinal motion in low back pain patients. Layden Chiropractic knows this isn’t good for our Plainville back pain patients! 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)

One article shares that there is big payoff for doing a little exercise! Patients who did just 2 days of muscle strengthening a week reduced the risk for low back pain. (And this article, as a side note, suggests that smoking is also a powerful factor in the equation of whether you get back pain or not.  It is better not to smoke.) (2) Layden Chiropractic offers simple exercises you can do in a short amount of time from the comfort of your own bedroom if you like! You’ll notice the difference these make!

Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers gain from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively influencing the pain perception by increasing your pain threshold and dropping your pain intensity. (3) Such exercises aren’t hard; they’re just effective! Layden Chiropractic will who you how to do them so you can feel the best possible back pain relief. Layden Chiropractic is with you, our Plainville back pain patient, during your whole course of healing with as much support as you need.

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

Adding back school to the chiropractic treatment plan enriches the good outcomes of back pain rehabilitation. How? Back school nurtures self-management, gives control back to the patient to take care of him/herself. (5) Layden Chiropractic tries to educate our back pain patients as to how and why their backs hurt and how to avoid or at least curtail future occurrences. One study of just how well back school is received by back pain patients is a study of those who attended a back school at a chiropractor’s office. Back pain patients stated 95% satisfaction with going to the class, and 100% said it was worth the doctor’s time to share the material. (6) Plainville chiropractic patients at Layden Chiropractic are some of the most spine-smart people around!
