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 Chicago chiropractor at Chiropractic Care
wonder how to get back pain patients to do recommended
exercises. After all, these exercises help back pain sufferers get stronger as
well as decrease 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 fix the back pain problem. What a quandary!
Both the Chicago chiropractor and Chicago chiropractic patient
have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and
expectations vary. (1) That is how it is. Research
shows this. Clinical experience shows this. When patients admit this and their chiropractors admit this, everyone then does his/her part to relieve Chicago back pain, prevent future pain, and
strengthen muscle. Let us do that!
EXERCISE GUIDELINES TO LESSEN AND PREVENT BACK
PAIN AND NECK PAIN
Guidelines for what to do with back pain and neck pain are published. Exercise is
among the recommendations for the non-invasive
pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies to treat acute and chronic low back pain and neck pain both devoid
of serious pathology and with radiculopathy. Spinal manipulation and manual
therapy are also listed in these guidelines by the Global Spine Care
Initiative. (2) Chiropractic Care carefully considers
these in caring for Chicago back pain.
BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES
Patients with low back pain are more
likely to be less active. Pain shapes that
decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may set
off pain, resulting in weakened muscles like the gluteus maximus. Prolonged
immobilization or inactivity prevents use of these muscles.
In low back pain patients, a weak gluteus maximus is common.
Researchers write that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional
area is reduced in low back pain sufferers, especially
for women. (3) For Chicago chiropractic back pain patients experiencing persistent 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 – lessened low back pain disability significantly more
and increased lumbar spine muscle strength and balance better
than just lumbar segmental stabilization exercise alone. (5) To
activate the gluteus maximus muscles, erector spinae and hamstrings
more intentionally during exercise, researchers devised a unique laser pointer system that permitted
the exercise participants to see their muscle usage. This improved
their form. (6) Let your Chicago chiropractor be your laser
pointer! Consider using the suggested
tips for how to exercise the right way.
