Exercise Enhances Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Plan

Exercise is good and beneficial. It goes hand-in-hand with chiropractic care of spine pain conditions of all sorts. Exercise also allows the patient to take part in their healing. 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 knows this isn’t good for our Baton Rouge back pain patients! 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 there is big payoff for doing a little exercise! 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 a short amount of time 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 need.

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!
