Exercise is effective and helpful. Exercise
is integral to the chiropractic care plan for spine pain issues of types.
Patients get to be a part of their own care and healing
when they do their exercises. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation knows our Baton Rouge
chiropractic patients just want to get back to doing what they want to do, what
they used to do.
Weak back muscles don’t allow fluid spinal motion in low
back pain patients. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation
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! Muscle strengthening activity performed just
two days a week reduces the odds of low back pain. (And this
article, as a side note, shares that smoking is also a
powerful factor in the equation of whether you get back
pain or not. Recommendation: Don’t smoke!) (2) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation recommends
simple exercises you can do in a short amount of time
from the comfort of your own bedroom if you like! You’ll notice
the difference these make!
Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers benefit
from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively influencing
the pain perception by increasing your pain threshold and reducing
your pain intensity. (3) These exercises are not difficult, but they do
Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation will share them with you so you
can attain the most possible back pain relief.
Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is with you, our Baton Rouge back pain patient, during
your healing process with as much support as you
Back school is an extra such
support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for managing chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are recommended
over many other types of care. (4) Cox Technic, an evidence based system of spine care, is spinal
manipulation that Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation chooses to use.
The chiropractic treatment plan is enhanced when
back school is included in the overall back pain rehabilitation
plan. How? Back school fosters self-management, gives
control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5)
Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation attempts to educate our back pain patients as
to how and why their backs hurt and how to prevent or at
least curtail 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 stated 95% satisfaction with taking time to attend, and 100% said it was worth the doctor’s time
to present it. (6) Baton Rouge chiropractic
patients at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation are some of the most spine-smart people around!
