Exercise is effective and helpful. It
goes hand-in-hand with chiropractic care of spine pain conditions of all sorts.
Patients get to be a part of their own care and healing
when they do their exercises. New Roads Chiropractic Center incorporates exercise into the chiropractic
treatment plan for all our New Roads patients to get them back to
enjoying the quality of life they want.
Lax muscles reduce motion in low back pain patients. New Roads Chiropractic Center knows this isn’t good for
our New Roads 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)
Researchers find that there is big
payoff for doing a little exercise! Patients
who did just 2 days of muscle strengthening a week reduced their
risk for low back pain. (And this
article, as a side note, suggests that smoking is also a
powerful factor in the equation of whether you get back
pain or not. It’s best not
to smoke.) (2) New Roads Chiropractic Center recommends
simple exercises you can do in a short amount of time
from the comfort of your own bedroom if you like! You’ll notice
the difference these make!
Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers benefit
from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively influencing
the pain perception by increasing your pain threshold and reducing
your pain intensity. (3) These exercises are not difficult, but they do
New Roads Chiropractic Center will who you how to do them so you
can experience the best possible back pain relief.
New Roads Chiropractic Center is with you, our New Roads back pain patient, through
your healing process with as much support as you
Back school is an extra such
support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for handling chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are suggested
over many other approaches. (4) New Roads Chiropractic Center uses spinal
manipulation in the form of Cox Technic, a chiropractic evidence based system of spine care.
The chiropractic treatment plan is enhanced when
back school is included in the overall back pain rehabilitation
plan. How? Back school fosters self-management, gives
control back to the patient to take care of him/herself. (5)
New Roads Chiropractic Center attempts 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. 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 going to the
class, and 100% said it was worth the doctor’s time
to present it. (6) New Roads chiropractic
patients at New Roads Chiropractic Center are some of the wisest and knowledgeable
spine-informed people around!
