Glute Strengthening Plus Chiropractic Eases Back Pain

Patient to the chiropractor: “Treat me so I don’t hurt.”

Chiropractor: “Be sure to do your exercises, so you won’t hurt.”

Chiropractors like your Preston chiropractor at Chiropractic Associates ponder how to get back pain patients to do suggested exercises. In any case, these exercises help back pain sufferers get stronger as well as decrease and prevent back pain! The back muscles and gluteus muscles and hamstrings get greater. Patients wonder why the chiropractor recommends exercises when all they wanted was for the chiropractor to correct the back pain problem. What a quandary! Both the Preston chiropractor and Preston chiropractic patient have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and expectations vary. (1) That is how it is. Research documents this. Clinical experience reveals this. When patients know this and their chiropractors know this, everyone then works together to relieve Preston back pain, prevent future pain, and strengthen muscle. Let’s do that!

EXERCISE GUIDELINES TO REDUCE AND PREVENT BACK PAIN AND NECK PAIN

Guidelines for how to handle back pain and neck pain are published. Exercise is in the mix of the recommendations for the non-invasive pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies for treating acute and chronic low back pain and neck pain both without serious pathology and with radiculopathy. Spinal manipulation and manual therapy are also among these guidelines by the Global Spine Care Initiative. (2) Chiropractic Associates pays attention to these in caring for Preston back pain.

BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES

Patients with low back pain are more likely to be less active. Pain influences that decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may cause pain, resulting in weakened muscles like the gluteus maximus. Lengthy immobilization or inactivity prevents use of these muscles. In low back pain patients, a weak gluteus maximus is common. Researchers document that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional area is decreased in low back pain sufferers, particularly in women. (3) For Preston chiropractic back pain patients facing persistent lumbopelvic pain and test positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, performing 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) Doing both - exercise to strengthening the gluteus maximus muscles and lumbar segmental stabilization exercise – reduced low back pain disability significantly more and increased lumbar spine muscle strength and balance better than just lumbar segmental stabilization exercise by itself. (5) To activate the gluteus maximus muscles, erector spinae and hamstrings more intentionally during exercise, researchers created a unique laser pointer system that allowed the exercise participants to visualize their muscle usage. This improved their form. (6) Let your Preston chiropractor be your laser pointer! Consider using the proposed tips for how to exercise properly.
