Exercise Enhances Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Plan

Exercise is good and beneficial. It goes hand-in-hand with chiropractic care of spine pain conditions of all sorts. Exercise also allows the patient to take part in their healing. Soft Health and Healing Clinic knows our Brooks 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. Soft Health and Healing Clinic knows this isn’t good for our Brooks 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 their risk for low back pain. (And this article, as a side note, shares that smoking is also an influential factor in the equation of whether you get back pain or not.  It is better not to smoke.) (2) Soft Health and Healing Clinic recommends simple exercises you can do in just a few minutes from the comfort of your own bedroom if you like! They’ll make a big impact. You’ll see!

Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers gain from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively affecting the pain perception by increasing your pain threshold and reducing your pain intensity. (3) These exercises are not difficult, but they do work. Soft Health and Healing Clinic will share them with you so you can experience the most possible back pain relief. Soft Health and Healing Clinic is with you, our Brooks back pain patient, throughout your whole course of healing with as much support as you need.

Back school is an extra such support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for handling chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are recommended over many other approaches. (4) Cox Technic, an evidence based system of spine care, is spinal manipulation that Soft Health and Healing Clinic chooses to use.

The addition of back school to the chiropractic treatment plan enhances the good outcomes of back pain rehabilitation. How? Back school nurtures self-management, gives control back to the patient to take care of him/herself. (5) Soft Health and Healing Clinic strives 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 attended 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) Brooks chiropractic patients at Soft Health and Healing Clinic are some of the wisest and knowledgeable spine-informed people around!

You can expect much at your first visit! Your chiropractic appointment will give you a clear understanding of what caused your pain and how you might avoid its annoyance in the future with exercise.
