Patient to the chiropractor: “Treat me so I don’t hurt.”
Chiropractor: “Be sure to do your exercises, so you won’t
Chiropractors like your Plainville chiropractor at Layden Chiropractic
ponder how to get back pain patients to do suggested
exercises. After all, these exercises help back pain sufferers get stronger plus decrease and prevent back pain! The back muscles and gluteus muscles and hamstrings get stronger. Patients
wonder why the chiropractor suggests
exercises since all they wanted was for the chiropractor
to correct the back pain problem. What a dilemma!
Both the Plainville chiropractor and Plainville chiropractic patient
have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and
expectations are different. (1) That’s how it is. Research
shows this. Clinical experience shows this. When patients
recognize this and their chiropractors recognize this, everyone then works
together to relieve Plainville back pain, prevent future pain, and
strengthen muscle. Let us do that!
EXERCISE GUIDELINES TO LESSEN AND PREVENT BACK
PAIN AND NECK PAIN
Guidelines for how to
handle back pain and neck pain are established. Exercise is
among the recommendations for the non-invasive
pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies for
treating acute and chronic low back pain and neck pain both devoid
of serious pathology and with radiculopathy. Spinal manipulation and manual
therapy are also in these guidelines by the Global Spine Care
Initiative. (2) Layden Chiropractic carefully considers
these in caring for Plainville back pain.
BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES
Patients with low back pain are more
likely to be less active. Pain affects that
decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may cause pain, resulting in weakened muscles like the gluteus maximus. Prolonged
immobilization or inactivity prevents use of these muscles.
In low back pain patients, a weak gluteus maximus is a common finding.
Researchers write that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional
area is reduced in low back pain sufferers, particularly
in women. (3) For Plainville chiropractic back pain patients experiencing unrelenting lumbopelvic pain and test
positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, doing gluteus
maximus strengthening exercises is beneficial. Patients who
did these found a reduction in pain and an improvement
in gluteus maximum strength and function. (4) Performing both - exercise
to strengthening the gluteus maximus muscles and lumbar segmental stabilization
exercise – reduced low back pain disability significantly more
and improved lumbar spine muscle strength and balance better
than just lumbar segmental stabilization exercise by itself. (5) To
stimulate the gluteus maximus muscles, erector spinae and hamstrings
more deliverately during exercise, researchers created a unique laser pointer system that permitted
the exercise participants to see their muscle usage. This enhanced
their form. (6) Let your Plainville chiropractor be your laser
pointer! Listen to suggested
tips for how to exercise properly.
