EXERCISE GUIDELINES TO REDUCE AND PREVENT BACK PAIN AND NECK PAIN

Guidelines for how to handle back pain and neck pain are published. Exercise is in the mix of the recommendations for the non-invasive pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies to help acute and chronic low back pain and neck pain both devoid of serious pathology and with radiculopathy. Spinal manipulation and manual therapy are also in these guidelines by the Global Spine Care Initiative. (2) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic pays attention to these in caring for Eugene back pain.

BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES

Patients with low back pain tend to be less active. Pain influences that decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may set off pain, resulting in weakened muscles like the gluteus maximus. Lengthy immobilization or inactivity prevents use of these muscles. In low back pain patients, a weak gluteus maximus is common. Researchers report that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional area is reduced in low back pain sufferers, especially for women. (3) For Eugene chiropractic back pain patients dealing with unrelenting lumbopelvic pain and test positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, performing gluteus maximus strengthening exercises is advantageous. Patients who did exercise 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 – reduced low back pain disability significantly more and increased lumbar spine muscle strength and balance better than just lumbar segmental stabilization exercise alone. (5) To stimulate the gluteus maximus muscles, erector spinae and hamstrings more intentionally during exercise, researchers created a unique laser pointer system that permitted the exercise participants to visualize their muscle usage. This improved their form. (6) Let your Eugene chiropractor be your laser pointer! Follow proposed tips for how to exercise properly.
