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 Lynchburg chiropractor at Palmer Chiropractic Center
wonder how to get back pain patients to do recommended
exercises. In any case, these exercises help back pain sufferers get stronger as
well as reduce and prevent back pain! The back muscles and gluteus muscles and hamstrings get greater. Patients
ponder why the chiropractor suggests
exercises since all they desired was for the chiropractor
to correct the back pain problem. What a dilemma!
Both the Lynchburg chiropractor and Lynchburg chiropractic patient
have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and
expectations are different. (1) That is how it is. Research
shows this. Clinical experience shows this. When patients
recognize this and their chiropractors recognize this, everyone then works
together to relieve Lynchburg back pain, prevent future pain, and
strengthen muscle. Let us do that!
EXERCISE GUIDELINES TO REDUCE AND PREVENT BACK
PAIN AND NECK PAIN
Guidelines for how to manage back pain and neck pain are established. Exercise is
in the mix of 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) Palmer Chiropractic Center pays attention to
these in caring for Lynchburg back pain.
BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES
Patients with low back pain are more apt to be less active. Pain influences that
decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may initiate pain, resulting in weakened muscles like the gluteus maximus. Lengthy
immobilization or sedentariness prevents use of these muscles.
In low back pain patients, a weak gluteus maximus is a common finding.
Researchers document that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional
area is decreased in low back pain sufferers, especially
in women. (3) For Lynchburg chiropractic back pain patients feeling unrelenting lumbopelvic pain and test
positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, doing 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) Doing both - exercise
to strengthening the gluteus maximus muscles and lumbar segmental stabilization
exercise – reduced low back pain disability significantly more
and improved lumbar spine muscle strength and balance better
than just lumbar segmental stabilization exercise by itself. (5) To
stimulate the gluteus maximus muscles, erector spinae and hamstrings
more intentionally during exercise, researchers created a unique laser pointer system that permitted
the exercise participants to visualize their muscle usage. This enhanced
their form. (6) Let your Lynchburg chiropractor be your laser
pointer! Follow proposed
tips for how to exercise properly.
