Glute Strengthening Plus Chiropractic Eases Back Pain

Patient to the chiropractor: “Treat me so I don’t hurt.”

Chiropractor: “Be sure to do your exercises, so you won’t hurt.”

Chiropractors like your Minster chiropractor at Minster Chiropractic Center speculate how to get back pain patients to do recommended exercises. After all, these exercises help back pain sufferers get stronger as well as decrease and prevent back pain! The back muscles and gluteus muscles and hamstrings get stronger. Patients speculate why the chiropractor recommends exercises since all they wanted was for the chiropractor to fix the back pain problem. What a quandary! Both the Minster chiropractor and Minster chiropractic patient have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and expectations are different. (1) That is how it is. Research documents this. Clinical experience reveals this. When patients recognize this and their chiropractors recognize this, everyone then does his/her part to relieve Minster back pain, prevent future pain, and strengthen muscle. Let’s do that!

EXERCISE GUIDELINES TO LESSEN AND PREVENT BACK PAIN AND NECK PAIN

Guidelines for how to handle back pain and neck pain are published. Exercise is amid the recommendations for the non-invasive pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies to help acute and chronic low back pain and neck pain both without serious pathology and with radiculopathy. Spinal manipulation and manual therapy are also in these guidelines by the Global Spine Care Initiative. (2) Minster Chiropractic Center pays attention to these in caring for Minster back pain.

BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES

Patients with low back pain tend to be less active. Pain shapes that decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may initiate pain, resulting in weakened muscles like the gluteus maximus. Prolonged immobilization or sedentariness prevents use of these muscles. In low back pain patients, a weak gluteus maximus is a common finding. Researchers write that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional area is decreased in low back pain sufferers, particularly in women. (3) For Minster chiropractic back pain patients feeling constant lumbopelvic pain and test positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, doing gluteus maximus strengthening exercises is advantageous. Patients who did exercise found a reduction 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 – reduced low back pain disability significantly more and increased lumbar spine muscle strength and balance better than just lumbar segmental stabilization exercise alone. (5) To stimulate 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 enhanced their form. (6) Let your Minster chiropractor be your laser pointer! Listen to suggested tips for how to exercise properly.
