Glute Strengthening Plus Chiropractic Eases Back Pain

Patient to the chiropractor: “Treat me so I don’t hurt.”

Chiropractor: “Be sure to do your exercises, so you won’t hurt.”

Chiropractors like your Chicago chiropractor at Chiropractic Care ponder 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 dilemma! 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 works together 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 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 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 decreased 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.
