Exercise is good and beneficial. Exercise
is integral to the chiropractic care plan for spine pain issues of types.
Exercise also allows the patient to take part
in their healing. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries knows our Manchester
chiropractic patients just want to get back to doing what they want to do, what
they used to do.
Weak back muscles don’t allow fluid spinal motion in low
back pain patients. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries
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 there is big
payoff for doing a little exercise! Patients
who did just 2 days of muscle strengthening a week reduced the
risk for low back pain. (And this
article, as a side note, suggests that smoking is also an influential factor in the equation of whether you get back
pain or not. It is better not to smoke.) (2) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries offers
simple exercises you can do in a short amount of time
from the comfort of your own home if you like! You’ll notice
the difference these make!
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 reducing
your pain intensity. (3) Such exercises aren’t tough; they’re just effective!
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries will share them with you so you
can experience the best possible back pain relief.
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is with you, our Manchester back pain patient, during
your whole course of healing with as much support as you
Back school is an extra such
support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for handling chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are suggested
over many other types of care. (4) Cox Technic, an evidence based system of spine care, is spinal
manipulation that Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries chooses to use.
The addition of back school to the chiropractic treatment
plan enhances the good outcomes of back pain
rehabilitation. How? Back school nurtures self-management, gives
control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5)
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries attempts to educate our back pain patients as
to how and why their backs hurt and how to prevent or at
least diminish the chances of future occurrences. A
survey of patients who went to a back school in a chiropractor’s
office showed 95% satisfaction with having gone to the course
and 100% support of the doctor’s giving it. (6) Manchester chiropractic
patients at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries are some of the most spine-smart people around!
