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. 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 lowers 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 work. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation will who you how to do them 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 need.

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!
