EXERCISE GUIDELINES TO REDUCE AND PREVENT BACK PAIN AND NECK PAIN

Guidelines for what to do with 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 without serious pathology and with radiculopathy. Spinal manipulation and manual therapy are also listed in these guidelines by the Global Spine Care Initiative. (2) Lakeshore Chiropractic carefully considers these in caring for Two Rivers back pain.

BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES

Patients with low back pain are more likely to be less active. Pain influences 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 report that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional area is decreased in low back pain sufferers, especially in women. (3) For Two Rivers chiropractic back pain patients facing constant lumbopelvic pain and test positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, performing gluteus maximus strengthening exercises is advantageous. Patients who did exercise found a decrease in pain and an improvement in gluteus maximum strength and function. (4) Performing both - exercise to strengthening the gluteus maximus muscles and lumbar segmental stabilization exercise – reduced low back pain disability significantly more and improved lumbar spine muscle strength and balance better than just lumbar segmental stabilization exercise alone. (5) To activate the gluteus maximus muscles, erector spinae and hamstrings more deliverately during exercise, researchers developed a unique laser pointer system that permitted the exercise participants to see their muscle usage. This enhanced their form. (6) Let your Two Rivers chiropractor be your laser pointer! Follow suggested tips for how to exercise the right way.
