Exercise is good and beneficial. 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. Spine & Sports Rehab Center incorporates exercise into the chiropractic
treatment plan for all our Baton Rouge patients to get them back to
enjoying the quality of life they want.
Lax muscles reduce motion in low back pain patients. Spine & Sports Rehab Center
doesn’t consider this helpful at all! Why do back pain patients have
weaker muscles? 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 doing a little exercise does a lot! 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 your risk of getting back pain. It’s best not
to smoke.) (2) Spine & Sports Rehab Center recommends
simple exercises you can do in just a few minutes
from the comfort of your own home if you like! You will see
just how big an impact these exercises will make on your healing.
Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers gain
from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively affecting
the pain perception by improving your pain threshold and dropping
your pain intensity. (3) Such exercises aren’t tough; they’re just effective!
Spine & Sports Rehab Center will who you how to do them so you
can feel the best possible back pain relief.
Spine & Sports Rehab Center is with you, our Baton Rouge back pain patient, throughout
your whole course of healing with as much support as you
Back school is an extra such
support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for managing chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are suggested
over many other approaches. (4) Spine & Sports Rehab Center uses spinal
manipulation in the form of Cox Technic, a chiropractic evidence based system of spine care.
The chiropractic treatment plan is enriched 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 help him/herself. (5)
Spine & Sports Rehab 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. A
survey of patients who attended a back school in a chiropractor’s
office showed 95% satisfaction with having attended the course
and 100% support of the doctor’s presenting it. (6) Baton Rouge chiropractic
patients at Spine & Sports Rehab Center are some of the wisest and knowledgeable
spine-informed people around!
