EXERCISE GUIDELINES TO REDUCE AND PREVENT BACK PAIN AND NECK PAIN

Guidelines for how to manage back pain and neck pain are published. Exercise is among 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 in these guidelines by the Global Spine Care Initiative. (2) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation carefully considers these in caring for Carrolltown back pain.

BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES

Patients with low back pain are more likely to be less active. Pain affects that decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may cause pain, resulting in weakened muscles like the gluteus maximus. Prolonged immobilization or sedentariness prevents use of these muscles. In low back pain patients, a weak gluteus maximus is common. Researchers report that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional area is decreased in low back pain sufferers, particularly in women. (3) For Carrolltown chiropractic back pain patients feeling constant lumbopelvic pain and test positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, performing gluteus maximus strengthening exercises is advantageous. Patients who did these found a decrease in pain and an improvement in gluteus maximum strength and function. (4) Performing both - exercise to strengthening the gluteus maximus muscles and lumbar segmental stabilization exercise – lessened low back pain disability significantly more and increased lumbar spine muscle strength and balance better than just lumbar segmental stabilization exercise alone. (5) To activate the gluteus maximus muscles, erector spinae and hamstrings more deliverately during exercise, researchers came up with a unique laser pointer system that permitted the exercise participants to see their muscle usage. This improved their form. (6) Let your Carrolltown chiropractor be your laser pointer! Consider using the proposed tips for how to exercise properly.
