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.
