Exercise Enhances Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Plan

Exercise is good and beneficial. Exercise is integral to the chiropractic care plan for spine pain issues of types. Patients get to be a part of their own care and healing when they do their exercises. Minster Chiropractic Center knows our Minster chiropractic patients just want to get back to doing what they want to do, what they used to do.

Weak back muscles don’t allow fluid spinal motion in low back pain patients. Minster Chiropractic 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)

One article shares that there is big payoff for doing a little exercise! Muscle strengthening activity performed just two days a week lowers the odds of low back pain. (And this article, as a side note, shares that smoking is also an influential factor in the equation of whether you get back pain or not.  It is better not to smoke.) (2) Minster Chiropractic Center recommends simple exercises you can do in a short amount of time from the comfort of your own home if you like! They’ll make a big impact. You’ll see!

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) These exercises are not difficult, but they do work. Minster Chiropractic Center will share them with you so you can experience the best possible back pain relief. Minster Chiropractic Center is with you, our Minster back pain patient, through 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 handling chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are suggested over many other approaches. (4) Cox Technic, an evidence based system of spine care, is spinal manipulation that Minster Chiropractic Center chooses to use.

The chiropractic treatment plan is enhanced 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) Minster Chiropractic Center tries to educate our back pain patients as to how and why their backs hurt and how to avoid or at least curtail future occurrences. One study of just how well back school is received by back pain patients is a study of those who went to a back school at a chiropractor’s office. Back pain patients stated 95% satisfaction with taking time to attend, and 100% said it was worth the doctor’s time to share the material. (6) Minster chiropractic patients at Minster Chiropractic Center are some of the wisest and knowledgeable spine-informed people around!
