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
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
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
