Exercise is effective and helpful. It
goes hand-in-hand with chiropractic care of spine pain conditions of all sorts.
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
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. A
survey of patients who attended a back school in a chiropractor’s
office showed 95% satisfaction with having gone to the course
and 100% support of the doctor’s giving it. (6) Mandeville chiropractic
patients at Mandeville Chiropractic are some of the wisest and knowledgeable
spine-informed people around!
