Patient to the chiropractor: “Treat me so I don’t hurt.”
Chiropractor: “Be sure to do your exercises, so you won’t
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 documents this. Clinical
experience reveals 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!
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
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.
BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES
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.
