Patient to the chiropractor: “Treat me so I don’t hurt.”
Chiropractor: “Be sure to do your exercises, so you won’t
Chiropractors like your Carrolltown chiropractor at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation
speculate how to get back pain patients to do suggested
exercises. After all, these exercises help back pain sufferers get stronger as
well as decrease and prevent back pain! The back muscles and gluteus muscles and hamstrings get stronger. Patients
wonder why the chiropractor recommends
exercises since all they wanted was for the chiropractor
to resolve the back pain problem. What a quandary!
Both the Carrolltown chiropractor and Carrolltown chiropractic patient
have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and
expectations vary. (1) That is how it is. Research
shows this. Clinical experience shows this. When patients admit this and their chiropractors admit this, everyone then works
together to relieve Carrolltown back pain, prevent future pain, and
strengthen muscle. Let’s do that!
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 influences 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.
