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 Sandy Springs chiropractor at Cross Chiropractic Center
wonder how to get back pain patients to do suggested
exercises. After all, these exercises help back pain sufferers get stronger plus reduce and prevent back pain! The back muscles and gluteus muscles and hamstrings get greater. Patients
ponder why the chiropractor suggests
exercises when all they desired was for the chiropractor
to resolve the back pain problem. What a dilemma!
Both the Sandy Springs chiropractor and Sandy Springs chiropractic patient
have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and
expectations vary. (1) That’s how it is. Research documents this. Clinical
experience reveals this. When patients know this and their chiropractors know
this, everyone then does his/her part to relieve Sandy Springs back pain, prevent future pain, and
strengthen muscle. Let us do that!
EXERCISE GUIDELINES TO REDUCE AND PREVENT BACK
PAIN AND NECK PAIN
Guidelines for how to manage back pain and neck pain are published. Exercise is
among the recommendations for the non-invasive
pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies to treat acute and chronic low back pain and neck pain both devoid
of serious pathology and with radiculopathy. Spinal manipulation and manual
therapy are also among these guidelines by the Global Spine Care
Initiative. (2) Cross Chiropractic Center carefully considers
these in caring for Sandy Springs back pain.
BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES
Patients with low back pain are more
likely to be less active. Pain influences that
decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may set
off pain, resulting in weakened muscles like the gluteus maximus. Prolonged
immobilization or inactivity prevents use of these muscles.
In low back pain patients, a weak gluteus maximus is a common finding.
Researchers report that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional
area is reduced in low back pain sufferers, especially
for women. (3) For Sandy Springs chiropractic back pain patients facing unrelenting lumbopelvic pain and test
positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, performing gluteus
maximus strengthening exercises is advantageous. Patients who
did these found a decrease in pain and an increase
in gluteus maximum strength and function. (4) Performing both - exercise
to strengthening the gluteus maximus muscles and lumbar segmental stabilization
exercise – lessened low back pain disability significantly more
and improved lumbar spine muscle strength and balance better
than just lumbar segmental stabilization exercise alone. (5) To
stimulate 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 Sandy Springs chiropractor be your laser
pointer! Follow advised
tips for how to exercise the right way.
