Patient to the chiropractor: “Treat me so I don’t hurt.”
Chiropractor: “Be sure to do your exercises, so you won’t
Chiropractors like your Manchester chiropractor at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries
wonder how to get back pain patients to do recommended
exercises. In any case, these exercises help back pain sufferers get stronger in addition to reduce and prevent back pain! The back muscles and gluteus muscles and hamstrings get stronger. Patients
ponder why the chiropractor recommends
exercises when all they wanted was for the chiropractor
to fix the back pain problem. What a dilemma!
Both the Manchester chiropractor and Manchester chiropractic patient
have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and
expectations vary. (1) That’s how it is. Research
shows this. Clinical experience shows this. When patients
recognize this and their chiropractors recognize this, everyone then does his/her part to relieve Manchester back pain, prevent future pain, and
strengthen muscle. Let us do that!
EXERCISE GUIDELINES TO LESSEN AND PREVENT BACK
PAIN AND NECK PAIN
Guidelines for how to
handle back pain and neck pain are established. 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 devoid
of serious pathology and with radiculopathy. Spinal manipulation and manual
therapy are also in these guidelines by the Global Spine Care
Initiative. (2) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries pays attention to
these in caring for Manchester back pain.
BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES
Patients with low back pain tend to be less active. Pain shapes that
decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may set
off pain, resulting in weakened muscles like the gluteus maximus. Lengthy
immobilization or sedentariness prevents use of these muscles.
In low back pain patients, a weak gluteus maximus is a common finding.
Researchers document that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional
area is decreased in low back pain sufferers, especially
for women. (3) For Manchester chiropractic back pain patients facing unrelenting lumbopelvic pain and test
positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, performing gluteus
maximus strengthening exercises is beneficial. Patients who
did these found a decrease in pain and an improvement
in gluteus maximum strength and function. (4) Doing 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 intentionally during exercise, researchers devised a unique laser pointer system that allowed
the exercise participants to visualize their muscle usage. This enhanced
their form. (6) Let your Manchester chiropractor be your laser
pointer! Follow advised
tips for how to exercise the right way.
