Exercise Enhances Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Plan

Exercise is effective and helpful. It goes hand-in-hand with chiropractic care of spine pain conditions of all sorts. Exercise also allows the patient to take control of their pain relief. 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 doesn’t consider this helpful at all! 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! Muscle strengthening activity performed just two days a week lowers the odds of 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 work. 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 need.

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.

Adding back school to the chiropractic treatment plan enhances 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) 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!
