Patient to the chiropractor: “Treat me so I don’t hurt.”
Chiropractor: “Be sure to do your exercises, so you won’t
Chiropractors like your Fort Wayne chiropractor at Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center
speculate how to get back pain patients to do recommended
exercises. In any case, these exercises help back pain sufferers get stronger in addition to decrease and prevent back pain! The back muscles and gluteus muscles and hamstrings get stronger. Patients
wonder why the chiropractor suggests
exercises since all they wanted was for the chiropractor
to fix the back pain problem. What a quandary!
Both the Fort Wayne chiropractor and Fort Wayne chiropractic patient
have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and
expectations are different. (1) That is how it is. Research documents this. Clinical
experience reveals this. When patients admit this and their chiropractors admit this, everyone then works
together to relieve Fort Wayne back pain, prevent future pain, and
strengthen muscle. Let’s do that!
EXERCISE GUIDELINES TO LESSEN AND PREVENT BACK
PAIN AND NECK PAIN
Guidelines for how to manage back pain and neck pain are published. Exercise is
among the recommendations for the non-invasive
pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies for
treating acute and chronic low back pain and neck pain both devoid
of serious pathology and with radiculopathy. Spinal manipulation and manual
therapy are also listed in these guidelines by the Global Spine Care
Initiative. (2) Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center carefully considers
these in caring for Fort Wayne back pain.
BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES
Patients with low back pain are more apt to be less active. Pain affects that
decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may initiate 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 report that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional
area is decreased in low back pain sufferers, especially
for women. (3) For Fort Wayne chiropractic back pain patients facing constant 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) Doing 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 by itself. (5) To
activate the gluteus maximus muscles, erector spinae and hamstrings
more intentionally during exercise, researchers came
up with a unique laser pointer system that allowed
the exercise participants to visualize their muscle usage. This improved
their form. (6) Let your Fort Wayne chiropractor be your laser
pointer! Listen to proposed
tips for how to exercise properly.
