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
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

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
