Exercise is good and beneficial. 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. Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC incorporates exercise into the chiropractic
treatment plan for all our Fort Wayne patients to get them back to
enjoying the quality of life they want.
Weak back muscles don’t allow fluid spinal motion in low
back pain patients. Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC knows this isn’t good for
our Fort Wayne back pain patients! 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! Muscle strengthening activity performed just
two days a week lowers the odds of low back pain. (And this
article, as a side note, shares that smoking is also an influential factor in the equation of whether you get back
pain or not. It’s best not
to smoke.) (2) Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC offers
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 influencing
the pain perception by improving your pain threshold and dropping
your pain intensity. (3) Such exercises aren’t hard; they’re just effective!
Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC will share them with you so you
can experience the most possible back pain relief.
Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC is with you, our Fort Wayne back pain patient, throughout
your whole course of healing with as much support as you
Back school is an extra 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 types of care. (4) Cox Technic, an evidence based system of spine care, is spinal
manipulation that Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC chooses to use.
The chiropractic treatment plan is enriched when
back school is added to the overall back pain rehabilitation
plan. How? Back school fosters self-management, gives
control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5)
Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC strives to educate our back pain patients as
to how and why their backs hurt and how to prevent or at
least minimize future occurrences. A
survey of patients who attended a back school in a chiropractor’s
office showed 95% satisfaction with having gone to the course
and 100% support of the doctor’s giving it. (6) Fort Wayne chiropractic
