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. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation incorporates exercise into the chiropractic
treatment plan for all our Carrolltown patients to get them back to
enjoying the quality of life they want.
Weak back muscles don’t allow fluid spinal motion in low
back pain patients. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation knows this isn’t good for
our Carrolltown 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)
One article shares that doing a little exercise does a lot! Patients
who did just 2 days of muscle strengthening a week reduced their
risk for 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’s best not
to smoke.) (2) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation presents
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 influencing
the pain perception by improving your pain threshold and dropping
your pain intensity. (3) Such exercises aren’t tough; they’re just effective!
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation will share them with you so you
can feel the best possible back pain relief.
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is with you, our Carrolltown back pain patient, during
your healing process with as much support as you
Back school is another 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) Cox Technic, an evidence based system of spine care, is spinal
manipulation that Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation chooses to use.
The chiropractic treatment plan is enhanced when
back school is included in the overall back pain rehabilitation
plan. How? Back school fosters self-management, gives
control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5)
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation attempts 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 attended the course
and 100% support of the doctor’s presenting it. (6) Carrolltown chiropractic
patients at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation are some of the most spine-smart people around!
