Tree trunks. Human trunks. Both must be solid. Both hold up their particular systems. The human system needs a strong, well-functioning trunk to support the spine. A lot of Plainville lower back pain patients trust in chiropractic care and approved exercise at Layden Chiropractic to recapture, strengthen, and support a strong trunk and spine. Plainville’s chiropractor at Layden Chiropractic is the expert to trust for all your spine needs!

Currently Plainville chiropractic care turns its eyes to the backbone of the trunk for hints to the origin of pain. From that backbone, from the spine, emanate nerves, nerves that send pain signals to the brain as well as pain-free signals to the body. It sends messages to move the body – the arms, the legs, the hands, the feet. The spine is central to the body system, so it deserves to be well-protected by strong muscles and well-cared for when any part of its system hurts. It deserves evidence-based care from the back pain specialist at Layden Chiropractic.

So chiropractic back pain specialists like yours at Layden Chiropractic study every part of the spine, every nerve from the spine, every test that might show how the spine is involved in your pain. Now once your Plainville chiropractic physician is able to examine you, the chiropractic treatment plan can be set. It often contains non-surgical spinal manipulation, nutrition, hot/cold therapy, and exercise between other paths. All elements of the chiropractic treatment plan aspire to strengthen the trunk, strengthen the spine … and be rest assured that we’ll talk, your Plainville chiropractor will listen as you talk and will clearly describe your condition to you. Your Plainville chiropractor knows that your understanding of your condition, your embracing your treatment plan, your doing your exercises and making your office visits will only enhance the opportunity for you to control and even be rid of your back pain.

Be sure to do your home exercises. They support your in-office chiropractic treatments with Cox Technic by strengthening the trunk muscles to hold your spine in place. Home spine exercises keep you involved in your care, give you control over your pain. One type of exercise Layden Chiropractic may well encourage is stability exercise. This strengthens the oblique abdominal muscles, the transverse abdominis muscle and multifidus muscles. Certain forms of stability exercise for these muscles are more appropriate when you are just starting to exercise while others are better performed once you start feeling better. Bridge pose (pelvic tilt type exercise) is a better early-on exercise as it strengthens local muscles. It significantly thickens the transverse abdominis. Side bridge exercise is a better later-on spine exercise as it strengthens muscles more globally as well as locally. (1)
