Exercise is effective and helpful. It
goes hand-in-hand with chiropractic care of spine pain conditions of all sorts.
Patients get to be a part of their own care and healing
when they do their exercises. 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! Muscle strengthening activity performed just
two days a week reduces 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. 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
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
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) Cox Technic, an evidence based system of spine care, is spinal
manipulation that Lakeshore Chiropractic chooses to use.
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!
