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 Pensacola chiropractor at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center
speculate how to get back pain patients to do recommended
exercises. In any case, these exercises help back pain sufferers get stronger in addition to reduce and prevent back pain! The back muscles and gluteus muscles and hamstrings get stronger. Patients
wonder why the chiropractor suggests
exercises when all they desired was for the chiropractor
to correct the back pain problem. What a quandary!
Both the Pensacola chiropractor and Pensacola chiropractic patient
have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and
expectations vary. (1) That’s how it is. Research documents this. Clinical
experience reveals this. When patients admit this and their chiropractors admit this, everyone then works
together to relieve Pensacola back pain, prevent future pain, and
strengthen muscle. Let’s do that!
EXERCISE GUIDELINES TO LESSEN AND PREVENT BACK
PAIN AND NECK PAIN
Guidelines for how to manage back pain and neck pain are established. 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) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center carefully considers
these in caring for Pensacola back pain.
BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES
Patients with low back pain are more apt to be less active. Pain affects that
decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may initiate pain, resulting in weakened muscles like the gluteus maximus. Lengthy
immobilization or inactivity prevents use of these muscles.
In low back pain patients, a weak gluteus maximus is a common finding.
Researchers write that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional
area is reduced in low back pain sufferers, especially
for women. (3) For Pensacola chiropractic back pain patients experiencing constant lumbopelvic pain and test
positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, performing gluteus
maximus strengthening exercises is advantageous. Patients who
did these found a reduction in pain and an increase
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
activate the gluteus maximus muscles, erector spinae and hamstrings
more intentionally during exercise, researchers created a unique laser pointer system that allowed
the exercise participants to see their muscle usage. This enhanced
their form. (6) Let your Pensacola chiropractor be your laser
pointer! Listen to advised
tips for how to exercise the right way.
