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 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 among these guidelines by the Global Spine Care Initiative.

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 by itself. (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.
