Effective Baton Rouge Back Pain Exercise: Bird Dog

Exercise for back pain: a common recommendation with good reason. Spine & Sports Rehab Center individualizes the most appropriate back pain exercises for each Baton Rouge back pain sufferer visiting Spine & Sports Rehab Center to relieve pain best, bolster the supporting muscles like the erector spinae and multifidus, and regain function. Spine & Sports Rehab Center also gives every effort to find exercises that are easy, effective in a variety of ways like the “bird dog” move!

INDIVIDUALIZED EXERCISE BASED ON YOUR SPINE

Chronic low back pain patients are not created equally. There are numerous factors that contribute to their back pain situation. Each chronic low back pain sufferer must be evaluated individually as your Baton Rouge chiropractor strives to do. It’s a known fact that back muscle function differs from a chronic low back pain sufferer to another. Distinctions can be found from a thorough examination which Spine & Sports Rehab Center is quite good at! The exam discoveries help shape a personalized treatment plan with personalized exercise recommendations. (1) Know with confidence that you are an individual at Spine & Sports Rehab Center!

WHICH EXERCISE FOR WHICH MUSCLE?

Exercise is a regular prescription for back pain patients…and with good reason. Muscles support the body and spine. A review of published papers on the usefulness of exercise found that exercise was likely effective for chronic low back pain compared to no treatment, placebo, advice or education alone, electrotherapy, or usual care. Its effect was limited for function, but it enhanced pain and functional limitations outcomes. (2) Spine & Sports Rehab Center believes our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients would be in agreement that benefits of any sort like this for a condition that is reported to be the foremost cause of disability globally for the past three decades or so, costing much in direct healthcare expense in addition to lost productivity, are worth seeking with some exercise. Start with one exercise (like the following one!) and build up to the basic 10 for back pain

ONE SIMPLE, EFFECTIVE EXERCISE: BIRD DOG

Erector spinae and multifidi muscles often grow weak with back pain yet are so valuable for stability.  Bird-dog (aka quadruped opposite arm/leg) is a 3-way effective exercise: toning the erector spinae while strengthening the multifidus and the core as well. Start this by starting on all fours: knees and hands, stretching the left leg and right arm out level with the floor. Hold the position for a couple seconds and repeat on the other side. Perform this 10 times on each side. (3,4) Have a chat with Spine & Sports Rehab Center before beginning any exercise though to be sure it’s the right one for you!
