Exercise Enhances Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Plan

Exercise is effective and helpful. Exercise is integral to the chiropractic care plan for spine pain issues of types. Exercise also allows the patient to take part in their healing. Mandeville Chiropractic knows our Mandeville chiropractic patients just want to get back to doing what they want to do, what they used to do.

Lax muscles reduce motion in low back pain patients. Mandeville Chiropractic knows this isn’t good for our Mandeville 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 doing a little exercise does a lot! Patients who did just 2 days of muscle strengthening a week lowered their risk for low back pain. (And this article, as a side note, shares that smoking is also an influential factor in your risk of getting back pain.  It is better not to smoke.) (2) Mandeville Chiropractic offers simple exercises you can do in just a few minutes 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 improving your pain threshold and reducing your pain intensity. (3) Such exercises aren’t tough; they’re just effective! Mandeville Chiropractic will share them with you so you can attain the best possible back pain relief. Mandeville Chiropractic is with you, our Mandeville back pain patient, during 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 suggested over many other types of care. (4) Cox Technic, an evidence based system of spine care, is spinal manipulation that Mandeville Chiropractic chooses to use.

The chiropractic treatment plan is enhanced when back school is added to the overall back pain rehabilitation plan. How? Back school fosters self-management, gives control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5) Mandeville Chiropractic tries to educate our back pain patients as to how and why their backs hurt and how to avoid or at least minimize future occurrences. One study of just how well back school is received by back pain patients is a study of those who attended a back school at a chiropractor’s office. Back pain patients reported 95% satisfaction with taking time to attend, and 100% said it was worth the doctor’s time to present it. (6) Mandeville chiropractic patients at Mandeville Chiropractic are some of the wisest and knowledgeable spine-informed people around!
