Exercise is effective and helpful. It
goes hand-in-hand with chiropractic care of spine pain conditions of all sorts.
Exercise also allows the patient to take control of their pain relief. Cross Chiropractic Center incorporates exercise into the chiropractic
treatment plan for all our Sandy Springs patients to get them back to
enjoying the quality of life they want.
Lax muscles reduce motion in low back pain patients. Cross Chiropractic Center knows this isn’t good for
our Sandy Springs back pain patients! 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! 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 your risk of getting back pain. 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
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) Cox Technic, an evidence based system of spine care, is spinal
manipulation that Cross Chiropractic Center chooses to use.
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!
