TIP OF THE MONTH:Extension Exercise Fort Wayne back pain sufferers frequently experience relief by flexing forward just a bit, not flexing backward into extension. (Check out the SPINE article May 2018 on our website about why!) Extension is not all bad. A healthy spine can extend. A healthy spine needs solid back muscles to support all its motions. Strengthening those extensor muscles to prevent Fort Wayne back pain is important. Research reports that lumbar spine extension weakness and extensor muscle deconditioning are found in Fort Wayne chiropractic patients with chronic low back pain. (5) Why? Back muscles degenerate in back pain sufferers like spinal discs degenerate. (6) Integrate extension exercises into your day when your Fort Wayne chiropractor tells you it is appropriate.
