Exercise Enhances Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Plan

Exercise is effective and helpful. It goes hand-in-hand with chiropractic care of spine pain conditions of all sorts. Exercise also allows the patient to take control of their pain relief. Lakeshore Chiropractic incorporates exercise into the chiropractic treatment plan for all our Two Rivers patients to get them back to enjoying the quality of life they want.

Lax muscles reduce motion in low back pain patients. Lakeshore 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! Patients who did just 2 days of muscle strengthening a week lowered their risk for 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.  Recommendation: Don’t smoke!) (2) Lakeshore Chiropractic offers simple exercises you can do in just a few minutes from the comfort of your own bedroom if you like! They’ll make a big impact. You’ll see!

Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers benefit from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively influencing the pain perception by increasing your pain threshold and dropping your pain intensity. (3) These exercises are not difficult, but they do work. Lakeshore Chiropractic will share them with you so you can experience the best possible back pain relief. Lakeshore Chiropractic is with you, our Two Rivers back pain patient, through your healing process with as much support as you need.

Back school is another such support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for working with chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are recommended over many other types of care. (4) Lakeshore Chiropractic uses spinal manipulation in the form of Cox Technic, a chiropractic evidence based system of spine care.

The chiropractic treatment plan is enhanced when back school is added to the overall back pain rehabilitation plan. How? Back school fosters self-management, gives control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5) Lakeshore Chiropractic tries to educate our back pain patients as to how and why their backs hurt and how to prevent or at least minimize future occurrences. One study of just how well back school is received by back pain patients is a study of those who attended 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) Two Rivers chiropractic patients at Lakeshore Chiropractic are some of the most spine-smart people around!
