Exercise Enhances Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Plan

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. Cross Chiropractic Center knows our Sandy Springs chiropractic patients just want to get back to doing what they want to do, what they used to do.

Lax muscles reduce motion in low back pain patients. Cross Chiropractic Center doesn’t consider this helpful at all! What makes these muscles weak? 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 done just two days a week reduces the odds of 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’s best not to smoke.) (2) Cross Chiropractic Center offers simple exercises you can do in just a few minutes from the comfort of your own bedroom if you like! You will see just how big an impact these exercises will make on your healing.

Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers benefit from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively influencing the pain perception by improving your pain threshold and reducing your pain intensity. (3) Such exercises aren’t tough; they’re just effective! Cross Chiropractic Center will share them with you so you can attain the most possible back pain relief. Cross Chiropractic Center is with you, our Sandy Springs back pain patient, through your healing process with as much support as you need.

Back school is an additional such support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for working with chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are suggested over many other approaches. (4) Cross Chiropractic Center uses spinal manipulation in the form of Cox Technic, a chiropractic evidence based system of spine care.

The addition of back school to the chiropractic treatment plan enriches the good outcomes of back pain rehabilitation. How? Back school fosters self-management, gives control back to the patient to take care of him/herself. (5) Cross Chiropractic Center 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. 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 presenting it. (6) Sandy Springs chiropractic patients at Cross Chiropractic Center are some of the wisest and knowledgeable spine-informed people around!
