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. Spinal Care Clinic incorporates exercise into the chiropractic treatment plan for all our Burlington and Hamilton patients to get them back to enjoying the quality of life they want.

Lax muscles reduce motion in low back pain patients. Spinal Care 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 their risk for low back pain. (And this article, as a side note, suggests that smoking is also an influential factor in the equation of whether you get back pain or not.  It is better not to smoke.) (2) Spinal Care Clinic offers 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 affecting the pain perception by increasing your pain threshold and reducing your pain intensity. (3) Such exercises aren’t hard; they’re just effective! Spinal Care Clinic will share them with you so you can experience the most possible back pain relief. Spinal Care Clinic is with you, our Burlington and Hamilton back pain patient, throughout your healing process with as much support as you need.

Back school is an extra such support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for handling 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 Spinal Care Clinic 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 take care of him/herself. (5) Spinal Care Clinic tries to educate our back pain patients as to how and why their backs hurt and how to prevent or at least diminish the chances of 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) Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients at Spinal Care Clinic are some of the most spine-smart people around!
