Exercise Enhances Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Plan

Exercise is effective and helpful. 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. Chiropractic Associates incorporates exercise into the chiropractic treatment plan for all our Preston patients to get them back to enjoying the quality of life they want.

Lax muscles reduce motion in low back pain patients. Chiropractic Associates knows this isn’t good for our Preston back pain patients! Why do back pain patients have weaker muscles? 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)

Researchers find that there is big payoff for doing a little exercise! Muscle strengthening activity done just two days a week lowers the odds of low back pain. (And this article, as a side note, shares that smoking is also a powerful factor in your risk of getting back pain.  It is better not to smoke.) (2) Chiropractic Associates recommends simple exercises you can do in a short amount of time from the comfort of your own bedroom if you like! They’ll make a big impact. You’ll see!

Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers gain from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively affecting the pain perception by increasing your pain threshold and reducing your pain intensity. (3) These exercises are not difficult, but they do work. Chiropractic Associates will who you how to do them so you can experience the most possible back pain relief. Chiropractic Associates is with you, our Preston back pain patient, throughout your healing process 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 recommended over many other approaches. (4) Chiropractic Associates uses spinal manipulation in the form of Cox Technic, a chiropractic evidence based system of spine care.

The addition of back school to the chiropractic treatment plan enhances the positives of back pain rehabilitation. How? Back school nurtures self-management, gives control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5) Chiropractic Associates 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. A survey of patients who went to a back school in a chiropractor’s office showed 95% satisfaction with having gone to the course and 100% support of the doctor’s providing it. (6) Preston chiropractic patients at Chiropractic Associates are some of the most spine-smart people around!
