Exercise for back
pain: a common recommendation with good reason.
Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc individualizes the suitable back pain exercises for each Fort Wayne back pain
sufferer visiting Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc to relieve pain
best, strengthen the supporting muscles like the erector
spinae and multifidus, and reclaim function. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc
also gives every effort to find exercises that are simple,
effective in a variety of ways like the “bird dog” move!
INDIVIDUALIZED EXERCISE BASED ON YOUR
Chronic low back pain patients are not created equally. There are many factors that contribute
to their back pain situation. Each chronic low back pain
sufferer must be evaluated individually as your
Fort Wayne chiropractor always tries to do. It’s well-known that back muscle function varies from one chronic
low back pain sufferer to another. Distinctions
can be found via a thorough examination which Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc does quite well. The exam discoveries help mold
a personalized treatment plan with personalized exercise recommendations. (1) Know with confidence that you are

WHICH EXERCISE FOR WHICH MUSCLE?
Exercise is a common suggestion
for back pain patients…and for good reason. Muscles support the body
and spine. A review of published papers on the usefulness
of exercise found that exercise was likely effective for chronic
low back pain compared to no treatment, placebo, advice or
education alone, electrotherapy, or usual care. Its effect was limited
for function, but it improved pain and functional limitations
outcomes. (2) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc believes our Fort Wayne
chiropractic patients would concur that benefits of
any type like this for a condition that is said
to be the leading cause of disability around
the world for the past three decades or so, costing a lot in
direct healthcare expense in addition to lost productivity,
are worth seeking with some exercise. Start with one exercise (like the following one!) and build up to the basic 10 for back pain.
ONE SIMPLE, EFFECTIVE EXERCISE: BIRD DOG
Erector spinae and multifidi muscles often weaken with back pain yet are so critical
for stability. Bird-dog (aka quadruped
opposite arm/leg) is a 3-way effective exercise: toning the erector spinae and
strengthening the multifidus and the core as well. Start this by starting on hands and knees, stretching the left leg and right arm out level with the floor. Hold the position for a couple seconds and repeat
on the other side. Do this 10 times on each side. (3,4) Have a
