Exercise is effective and helpful. Exercise
is integral to the chiropractic care plan for spine pain issues of types.
Exercise also allows the patient to take part
in their healing. Palmer Chiropractic Center incorporates exercise into the chiropractic
treatment plan for all our Lynchburg patients to get them back to
enjoying the quality of life they want.
Lax muscles reduce motion in low back pain patients. Palmer Chiropractic Center
doesn’t consider this helpful at all! What makes these muscles weak? 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 lowered the
risk for low back pain. (And this
article, as a side note, suggests that smoking is also a
powerful factor in your risk of getting back pain. It’s best not
to smoke.) (2) Palmer Chiropractic Center recommends
simple exercises you can do in just a few minutes
from the comfort of your own home if you like! You’ll notice
the difference these make!
Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers benefit
from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively influencing
the pain perception by improving your pain threshold and reducing
your pain intensity. (3) Such exercises aren’t tough; they’re just effective!
Palmer Chiropractic Center will share them with you so you
can experience the best possible back pain relief.
Palmer Chiropractic Center is with you, our Lynchburg back pain patient, during
your healing process with as much support as you
Back school is an additional such
support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for managing 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 Palmer Chiropractic Center chooses to use.
The addition of back school to the chiropractic treatment
plan enhances the good outcomes of back pain
rehabilitation. How? Back school fosters self-management, gives
control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5)
Palmer Chiropractic Center attempts to educate our back pain patients as
to how and why their backs hurt and how to prevent or at
least curtail future occurrences. One
study of just how well back school is received by back pain patients is a study
of those who went to a back school at a chiropractor’s office.
Back pain patients stated 95% satisfaction with taking time to attend, and 100% said it was worth the doctor’s time
to share the material. (6) Lynchburg chiropractic
