Glute Strengthening Plus Chiropractic Eases Back Pain

Patient to the chiropractor: “Treat me so I don’t hurt.”

Chiropractor: “Be sure to do your exercises, so you won’t hurt.”

Chiropractors like your Plymouth chiropractor at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology wonder how to get back pain patients to do recommended exercises. In any case, these exercises help back pain sufferers get stronger in addition to reduce and prevent back pain! The back muscles and gluteus muscles and hamstrings get greater. Patients speculate why the chiropractor suggests exercises since all they wanted was for the chiropractor to correct the back pain problem. What a dilemma! Both the Plymouth chiropractor and Plymouth 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 Plymouth 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 what to do with back pain and neck pain are published. Exercise is among the recommendations for the non-invasive pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies to help acute and chronic low back pain and neck pain both without serious pathology and with radiculopathy. Spinal manipulation and manual therapy are also among these guidelines by the Global Spine Care Initiative. (2) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology carefully considers these in caring for Plymouth back pain.

BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES

Patients with low back pain are more apt to be less active. Pain influences that decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may cause 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 document that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional area is reduced in low back pain sufferers, particularly for women. (3) For Plymouth chiropractic back pain patients feeling persistent lumbopelvic pain and test positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, doing gluteus maximus strengthening exercises is beneficial. Patients who did these found a lessening in pain and an improvement 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 increased lumbar spine muscle strength and balance better than just lumbar segmental stabilization exercise alone. (5) To activate the gluteus maximus muscles, erector spinae and hamstrings more intentionally during exercise, researchers devised a unique laser pointer system that permitted the exercise participants to visualize their muscle usage. This improved their form. (6) Let your Plymouth chiropractor be your laser pointer! Consider using the advised tips for how to exercise the right way.
