Exercise for back
pain: a common recommendation with good reason.
Apple Country Chiropractic individualizes the most
appropriate back pain exercises for each Williamson back pain
sufferer visiting Apple Country Chiropractic to relieve pain
best, boost the supporting muscles like the erector
spinae and multifidus, and recoup function. Apple Country Chiropractic
also gives every effort to find exercises that are easy,
effective in numerous ways like the “bird dog” move!
INDIVIDUALIZED EXERCISE BASED ON YOUR
Chronic low back pain patients are not created equally. There are many factors that contribute
to their back pain situation. Each chronic low back pain
sufferer must be considered individually as your
Williamson chiropractor strives to do. It’s well-known that back muscle function varies from a chronic
low back pain sufferer to another. Variations
can be found from a thorough examination which Apple Country Chiropractic does quite well. The exam discoveries help mold
an individual treatment plan
with individualized exercise recommendations. (1) Know with confidence that you are
an individual at Apple Country Chiropractic!
WHICH EXERCISE FOR WHICH MUSCLE?
Exercise is a frequent prescription
for back pain patients…and for good reason. Muscles support the body
and spine. A review of published papers on the usefulness
of exercise found that exercise was likely effective for chronic
low back pain compared to no treatment, placebo, advice or
education alone, electrotherapy, or usual care. Its effect was limited
for function, but it improved pain and functional limitations
outcomes. (2) Apple Country Chiropractic thinks our Williamson
chiropractic patients would agree that benefits of
any type like this for a condition that is reportedly the foremost cause of disability around
the world for the past three decades or so, costing a lot in
direct healthcare expense as well as lost productivity,
are worth seeking with some exercise. Start with one exercise (like the following one!) and build up to the basic 10 for back pain.
ONE SIMPLE, EFFECTIVE EXERCISE: BIRD DOG
Erector spinae and multifidi muscles often weaken with back pain yet are so essential
for stability. Bird-dog (aka quadruped
opposite arm/leg) is a 3-way effective exercise: toning the erector spinae and
strengthening both the core and the
multifidus. Start this by getting on all fours: knees and
hands, stretching the left leg and right arm out parallel
to the floor. Hold this for a couple seconds and repeat
on the other side. Perform this 10 times on each side. (3,4) Have a
