Chronic low back pain patients are not all made in the same way. There are numerous factors that impact their back pain state. Each chronic low back pain sufferer must be considered individually as your Manchester chiropractor strives to do. It’s a known fact that back muscle function varies from one chronic low back pain sufferer to another. Variations can be found from a thorough examination which Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is quite good at! The exam discoveries help create a personalized treatment plan with personalized exercise recommendations. (1) Know with confidence that you are an individual at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries!


Exercise is a regular suggestion for back pain patients…and with good reason. Muscles support the body and spine. A review of published research on the usefulness of exercise revealed that exercise was likely effective for chronic low back pain compared to no treatment, placebo, advice or education alone, electrotherapy, or usual care. Its impact was limited for function, but it improved pain and functional limitations outcomes. (2) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries believes our Manchester chiropractic patients would be in agreement that benefits of any type like this for a condition that is reportedly the foremost cause of disability globally for the past three decades or so, costing a lot in direct healthcare expense as well as lost productivity, are valuable to {{pursue with some exercise. Start with one exercise (like the following one!) and build up to the basic 10 for back pain


Erector spinae and multifidi muscles often weaken with back pain, but they are so critical for stability.  Bird-dog (aka quadruped opposite arm/leg) is a 3-way effective exercise: toning the erector spinae and strengthening both the core and the multifidus. Start this by starting on all fours: knees and hands, stretching the left leg and right arm out parallel to the floor. Hold this for a couple seconds and repeat on the other side. Do this 10 times on each side. (3,4) Have a chat with Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries before starting any exercise though to be sure it’s appropriate for you!
