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. Apple Country Chiropractic incorporates exercise into the chiropractic treatment plan for all our Williamson patients to get them back to enjoying the quality of life they want.

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

Researchers find that doing a little exercise does a lot! Muscle strengthening activity done 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 your risk of getting back pain.  It is better not to smoke.) (2) Apple Country Chiropractic recommends simple exercises you can do in a short amount of time from the comfort of your own bedroom if you like! You’ll notice the difference these make!

Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers benefit from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively influencing the pain perception by improving your pain threshold and reducing your pain intensity. (3) Such exercises aren’t tough; they’re just effective! Apple Country Chiropractic will share them with you so you can feel the best possible back pain relief. Apple Country Chiropractic is with you, our Williamson back pain patient, through your whole course of healing with as much support as you need.

Back school is another 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 types of care. (4) Apple Country Chiropractic 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) Apple Country Chiropractic tries to educate our back pain patients as to how and why their backs hurt and how to preclude 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 reported 95% satisfaction with taking time to attend, and 100% said it was worth the doctor’s time to present it. (6) Williamson chiropractic patients at Apple Country Chiropractic are some of the most spine-smart people around!
