Glute Strengthening Plus Chiropractic Eases Back Pain

Patient to the chiropractor: “Treat me so I don’t hurt.”

Chiropractor: “Be sure to do your exercises, so you won’t hurt.”

Chiropractors like your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor at Spinal Care Clinic wonder how to get back pain patients to do recommended exercises. After all, these exercises help back pain sufferers get stronger in addition to reduce and prevent back pain! The back muscles and gluteus muscles and hamstrings get greater. Patients ponder why the chiropractor recommends exercises since all they desired was for the chiropractor to resolve the back pain problem. What a quandary! Both the Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor and Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patient have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and expectations vary. (1) That’s how it is. Research documents this. Clinical experience reveals this. When patients recognize this and their chiropractors recognize this, everyone then does his/her part to relieve Burlington and Hamilton 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 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) Spinal Care Clinic carefully considers these in caring for Burlington and Hamilton back pain.

BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES

Patients with low back pain tend to be less active. Pain shapes that decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may cause pain, resulting in weakened muscles like the gluteus maximus. Prolonged immobilization or sedentariness prevents use of these muscles. In low back pain patients, a weak gluteus maximus is a common finding. Researchers document that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional area is reduced in low back pain sufferers, particularly in women. (3) For Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic back pain patients experiencing unrelenting lumbopelvic pain and test positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, performing gluteus maximus strengthening exercises is advantageous. Patients who did these found a decrease 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 improved 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 deliverately during exercise, researchers came up with a unique laser pointer system that permitted the exercise participants to visualize their muscle usage. This improved their form. (6) Let your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor be your laser pointer! Consider using the advised tips for how to exercise the right way.
