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 Mandeville chiropractor at Mandeville Chiropractic wonder how to get back pain patients to do recommended exercises. In any case, these exercises help back pain sufferers get stronger as well as reduce and prevent back pain! The back muscles and gluteus muscles and hamstrings get greater. Patients ponder why the chiropractor recommends exercises when all they desired was for the chiropractor to fix the back pain problem. What a quandary! Both the Mandeville chiropractor and Mandeville chiropractic patient have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and expectations are different. (1) That’s how it is. Research shows this. Clinical experience shows this. When patients know this and their chiropractors know this, everyone then does his/her part to relieve Mandeville back pain, prevent future pain, and strengthen muscle. Let’s do that!


Guidelines for how to handle back pain and neck pain are established. Exercise is amid the recommendations for the non-invasive pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies for treating acute and chronic low back pain and neck pain both devoid of serious pathology and with radiculopathy. Spinal manipulation and manual therapy are also among these guidelines by the Global Spine Care Initiative. (2) Mandeville Chiropractic pays attention to these in caring for Mandeville back pain.


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 sedentariness prevents use of these muscles. In low back pain patients, a weak gluteus maximus is a common finding. Researchers write that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional area is decreased in low back pain sufferers, particularly for women. (3) For Mandeville chiropractic back pain patients feeling persistent lumbopelvic pain and test positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, performing gluteus maximus strengthening exercises is advantageous. Patients who did these found a reduction in pain and an increase in gluteus maximum strength and function. (4) Doing both - exercise to strengthening the gluteus maximus muscles and lumbar segmental stabilization exercise – lessened low back pain disability significantly more and improved 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 deliverately during exercise, researchers developed a unique laser pointer system that allowed the exercise participants to visualize their muscle usage. This improved their form. (6) Let your Mandeville chiropractor be your laser pointer! Follow proposed tips for how to exercise the right way.
