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 knows our Plainville
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. 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
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!
