Exercise Enhances Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Plan

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 doesn’t consider this helpful at all! 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 the equation of whether you get back pain or not.  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 need.

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!
