Exercise Enhances Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Plan

Exercise is effective and helpful. Exercise is integral to the chiropractic care plan for spine pain issues of types. Exercise also allows the patient to take control of their pain relief. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic incorporates exercise into the chiropractic treatment plan for all our Eugene 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. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic doesn’t consider this helpful at all! Why do back pain patients have weaker muscles? 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 doing a little exercise does a lot! Patients who did just 2 days of muscle strengthening a week reduced the risk for low back pain. (And this article, as a side note, suggests that smoking is also a powerful factor in the equation of whether you get back pain or not.  It is better not to smoke.) (2) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic recommends simple exercises you can do in just a few minutes from the comfort of your own home if you like! They’ll make a big impact. You’ll see!

Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers benefit from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively influencing the pain perception by improving your pain threshold and reducing your pain intensity. (3) Such exercises aren’t hard; they’re just effective! Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic will who you how to do them so you can experience the best possible back pain relief. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is with you, our Eugene back pain patient, throughout your healing process with as much support as you need.

Back school is another such support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for handling chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are recommended over many other approaches. (4) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic uses spinal manipulation in the form of Cox Technic, a chiropractic evidence based system of spine care.

Adding back school to the chiropractic treatment plan enhances the positives of back pain rehabilitation. How? Back school nurtures self-management, gives control back to the patient to take care of him/herself. (5) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic attempts to educate our back pain patients as to how and why their backs hurt and how to preclude or at least diminish the chances of future occurrences. One study of just how well back school is received by back pain patients is a study of those who went to a back school at a chiropractor’s office. Back pain patients reported 95% satisfaction with taking time to attend, and 100% said it was worth the doctor’s time to present it. (6) Eugene chiropractic patients at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic are some of the most spine-smart people around!
