Exercise is good and beneficial. Exercise
is integral to the chiropractic care plan for spine pain issues of types.
Patients get to be a part of their own care and healing
when they do their exercises. Chiropractic Care incorporates exercise into the chiropractic
treatment plan for all our Chicago patients to get them back to
enjoying the quality of life they want.
Lax muscles reduce motion in low back pain patients. Chiropractic Care knows this isn’t good for
our Chicago back pain patients! 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 an influential factor in the equation of whether you get back
pain or not. Recommendation: Don’t smoke!) (2) Chiropractic Care presents
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 influencing
the pain perception by improving your pain threshold and reducing
your pain intensity. (3) Such exercises aren’t hard; they’re just effective!
Chiropractic Care will who you how to do them so you
can attain the most possible back pain relief.
Chiropractic Care is with you, our Chicago back pain patient, throughout
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 working
with chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are recommended
over many other types of care. (4) Chiropractic Care uses spinal
manipulation in the form of Cox Technic, a chiropractic evidence based system of spine care.
Adding back school to the chiropractic treatment
plan enriches the positives of back pain
rehabilitation. How? Back school fosters self-management, gives
control back to the patient to take care of him/herself. (5)
Chiropractic Care strives to educate our back pain patients as
to how and why their backs hurt and how to preclude or at
least diminish the chances of future occurrences. A
survey of patients who went to a back school in a chiropractor’s
office showed 95% satisfaction with having attended the course
and 100% support of the doctor’s presenting it. (6) Chicago chiropractic
patients at Chiropractic Care are some of the most spine-smart people around!
