Exercise Enhances Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Plan

Exercise is effective and helpful. Exercise is integral to the chiropractic care plan for spine pain issues of types. Exercise also allows the patient to take part in their healing. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology knows our Plymouth 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. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology 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)

One article shares that there is big payoff for doing a little exercise! Patients who did just 2 days of muscle strengthening a week lowered the risk for 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.  Recommendation: Don’t smoke!) (2) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology recommends simple exercises you can do in a short amount of time from the comfort of your own home if you like! You will see just how big an impact these exercises will make on your healing.

Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers gain from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively affecting the pain perception by improving your pain threshold and dropping your pain intensity. (3) These exercises are not difficult, but they do work. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology will who you how to do them so you can experience the best possible back pain relief. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology is with you, our Plymouth back pain patient, throughout your healing process with as much support as you need.

Back school is another such support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for managing 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 Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology 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) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology attempts to educate our back pain patients as to how and why their backs hurt and how to prevent or at least curtail 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) Plymouth chiropractic patients at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology are some of the most spine-smart people around!
