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 Eugene chiropractor at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic
speculate how to get back pain patients to do recommended
exercises. After all, these exercises help back pain sufferers get stronger plus reduce and prevent back pain! The back muscles and gluteus muscles and hamstrings get stronger. Patients
wonder why the chiropractor recommends
exercises since all they wanted was for the chiropractor
to correct the back pain problem. What a dilemma!
Both the Eugene chiropractor and Eugene chiropractic patient
have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and
expectations are different. (1) That is how it is. Research
shows this. Clinical experience shows this. When patients know this and their chiropractors know
this, everyone then works
together to relieve Eugene back pain, prevent future pain, and
strengthen muscle. Let us do that!
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.
