EXERCISE GUIDELINES TO REDUCE AND PREVENT BACK PAIN AND NECK PAIN

Guidelines for how to manage back pain and neck pain are established. Exercise is in the mix of the recommendations for the non-invasive pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies for treating acute and chronic low back pain and neck pain both without serious pathology and with radiculopathy. Spinal manipulation and manual therapy are also among these guidelines by the Global Spine Care Initiative. (2) New Roads Chiropractic Center carefully considers these in caring for New Roads back pain.

BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES

Patients with low back pain tend to be less active. Pain influences that decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may set off pain, resulting in weakened muscles like the gluteus maximus. Lengthy 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, particularly for women. (3) For New Roads chiropractic back pain patients experiencing persistent lumbopelvic pain and test positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, performing gluteus maximus strengthening exercises is beneficial. Patients who did exercise found a decrease in pain and an increase in gluteus maximum strength and function. (4) Performing both - exercise to strengthening the gluteus maximus muscles and lumbar segmental stabilization exercise – reduced low back pain disability significantly more and improved lumbar spine muscle strength and balance better than just lumbar segmental stabilization exercise by itself. (5) To activate the gluteus maximus muscles, erector spinae and hamstrings more intentionally during exercise, researchers developed a unique laser pointer system that permitted the exercise participants to visualize their muscle usage. This enhanced their form. (6) Let your New Roads chiropractor be your laser pointer! Listen to suggested tips for how to exercise properly.
