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 Williamson chiropractor at Apple Country Chiropractic speculate how to get back pain patients to do suggested exercises. In any case, 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 when all they desired was for the chiropractor to resolve the back pain problem. What a quandary! Both the Williamson chiropractor and Williamson chiropractic patient have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and expectations vary. (1) That is how it is. Research shows this. Clinical experience shows this. When patients know this and their chiropractors know this, everyone then does his/her part to relieve Williamson back pain, prevent future pain, and strengthen muscle. Let’s do that!


Guidelines for how to handle back pain and neck pain are published. 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 among these guidelines by the Global Spine Care Initiative. (2) Apple Country Chiropractic carefully considers these in caring for Williamson back pain.


Patients with low back pain are more apt to be less active. Pain shapes that decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may cause pain, resulting in weakened muscles like the gluteus maximus. Prolonged immobilization or inactivity 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 Williamson chiropractic back pain patients experiencing unrelenting lumbopelvic pain and test positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, performing gluteus maximus strengthening exercises is advantageous. Patients who did these found a reduction in pain and an improvement 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 improved lumbar spine muscle strength and balance better than just lumbar segmental stabilization exercise by itself. (5) To activate the gluteus maximus muscles, erector spinae and hamstrings more intentionally during exercise, researchers came up with a unique laser pointer system that allowed the exercise participants to see their muscle usage. This enhanced their form. (6) Let your Williamson chiropractor be your laser pointer! Listen to proposed tips for how to exercise properly.
