Exercise is good and beneficial. It
goes hand-in-hand with chiropractic care of spine pain conditions of all sorts.
Exercise also allows the patient to take part
in their healing. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center knows our Pensacola
chiropractic patients just want to get back to doing what they want to do, what
they used to do.
Weak back muscles don’t allow fluid spinal motion in low
back pain patients. Pensacola Spinal Rehab 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)
Researchers find that doing a little exercise does a lot! Patients
who did just 2 days of muscle strengthening a week lowered their
risk for low back pain. (And this
article, as a side note, shares that smoking is also a
powerful factor in your risk of getting back pain. It’s best not
to smoke.) (2) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center offers
simple exercises you can do in just a few minutes
from the comfort of your own bedroom if you like! You’ll notice
the difference these make!
Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers gain
from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively affecting
the pain perception by improving your pain threshold and reducing
your pain intensity. (3) Such exercises aren’t hard; they’re just effective!
Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center will who you how to do them so you
can feel the best possible back pain relief.
Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is with you, our Pensacola back pain patient, during
your whole course of healing with as much support as you
Back school is another 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 types of care. (4) Cox Technic, an evidence based system of spine care, is spinal
manipulation that Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center chooses to use.
The chiropractic treatment plan is enhanced when
back school is added to the overall back pain rehabilitation
plan. How? Back school nurtures self-management, gives
control back to the patient to take care of him/herself. (5)
Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center attempts to educate our back pain patients as
to how and why their backs hurt and how to avoid or at
least minimize 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 reported 95% satisfaction with taking time to attend, and 100% said it was worth the doctor’s time
to share the material. (6) Pensacola chiropractic
patients at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center are some of the wisest and knowledgeable
spine-informed people around!
