Patient to the chiropractor: “Treat me so I don’t hurt.”
Chiropractor: “Be sure to do your exercises, so you won’t
Chiropractors like your Baton Rouge chiropractor at Spine & Sports Rehab Center
ponder how to get back pain patients to do suggested
exercises. In any case, these exercises help back pain sufferers get stronger in addition to decrease and prevent back pain! The back muscles and gluteus muscles and hamstrings get greater. Patients
ponder why the chiropractor recommends
exercises when all they desired was for the chiropractor
to resolve the back pain problem. What a quandary!
Both the Baton Rouge chiropractor and Baton Rouge chiropractic patient
have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and
expectations vary. (1) That is how it is. Research documents this. Clinical
experience reveals this. When patients know this and their chiropractors know
this, everyone then works
together to relieve Baton Rouge back pain, prevent future pain, and
strengthen muscle. Let us do that!
EXERCISE GUIDELINES TO LESSEN AND PREVENT BACK
PAIN AND NECK PAIN
Guidelines for how to manage back pain and neck pain are established. Exercise is
among the recommendations for the non-invasive
pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies for
treating acute and chronic low back pain and neck pain both devoid
of serious pathology and with radiculopathy. Spinal manipulation and manual
therapy are also in these guidelines by the Global Spine Care
Initiative. (2) Spine & Sports Rehab Center carefully considers
these in caring for Baton Rouge back pain.
BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES
Patients with low back pain are more apt to be less active. Pain influences that
decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may initiate 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 a common finding.
Researchers report that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional
area is decreased in low back pain sufferers, especially
for women. (3) For Baton Rouge chiropractic back pain patients dealing
with unrelenting lumbopelvic pain and test
positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, performing gluteus
maximus strengthening exercises is advantageous. Patients who
did exercise found a lessening in pain and an increase
in gluteus maximum strength and function. (4) Doing both - exercise
to strengthening the gluteus maximus muscles and lumbar segmental stabilization
exercise – lessened low back pain disability significantly more
and increased lumbar spine muscle strength and balance better
than just lumbar segmental stabilization exercise alone. (5) To
activate the gluteus maximus muscles, erector spinae and hamstrings
more deliverately during exercise, researchers came
up with a unique laser pointer system that permitted
the exercise participants to see their muscle usage. This improved
their form. (6) Let your Baton Rouge chiropractor be your laser
pointer! Listen to suggested
tips for how to exercise properly.
