Exercise Enhances Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Plan

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 knows our Lynchburg chiropractic patients just want to get back to doing what they want to do, what they used to do.

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 dropping 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 need.

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 patients at Palmer Chiropractic Center are some of the most spine-smart people around!
