Exercise Works with Baton Rouge Chiropractic Care for Back Pain Relief

Iliocostalis. Multifidus. Lumbar spine muscles. They need a workout! They are all included in the treatment plan for back pain relief.

Having strong back muscles is important for all of us. For Baton Rouge low back pain prone patients, strong back muscles are even more important. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is the Baton Rouge back pain specialty clinic to visit when back pain is an issue. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation incorporates the best of passive care treatment as well as active care recommendations to move Baton Rouge back pain sufferers from pain to pain relief and the quality of life they want.

Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation offers the research-documented relieving treatment technique called Cox Technic. It’s proven and known to drop intradiscal pressures and open the spinal canal area enough for pain relief. Cox Technic is the Baton Rouge chiropractic technique Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation chooses to use due to its science and clinical outcomes. Plus it’s a system of care within which nutrition, education and especially exercise all play a role to relieve low back pain.

Exercise is repeatedly shown beneficial as a tool for relieving back pain and sustaining that relief. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation shares such tools with our Baton Rouge back pain patients. The latest round of research articles on the benefits of exercise share that prone exercises – those done while lying on the stomach – are likely the most effective to strengthen the lumbar iliocostalis and lumbar multifidus muscles. Lifting alternate arms and legs while lying prone is one of the most effective for the multifidus muscle strengthening. (1) Specific core stability exercise for back pain relief is more effective to decrease pain and increase back function than general exercise. (2) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation agrees! General exercise is good for overall health. When back pain rears its head, doing specific exercises to target supportive as well as specific back muscles is necessary. Another article relates that back pain patients’ actually doing the exercises at home is critical and doing them correctly is even more significant. (3) For this reason, Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation may well share exercise videos with you of the proper way to do these exercises so you can follow them at home and/or even do them with you at the office to be sure you are doing these back exercises correctly. Further, in a study that compared doing back stretching and strengthening exercises versus not doing them reports that active rehabilitation therapy is a positive intervention for back pain relief. Specifically, the group who did them showed increased back strength and subjective pain relief. The group who didn’t do the back exercises showed decreased back strength and no change in subjective pain relief. (4) That alone is reason enough for Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation to recommend (and our Baton Rouge back pain patients to do!?) exercises.
