EXERCISE GUIDELINES TO REDUCE AND PREVENT BACK PAIN AND NECK PAIN

Guidelines for what to do with back pain and neck pain are published. Exercise is in the mix of the recommendations for the non-invasive pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies to treat acute and chronic low back pain and neck pain both without serious pathology and with radiculopathy. Spinal manipulation and manual therapy are also among these guidelines by the Global Spine Care Initiative. (2) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation carefully considers these in caring for Baton Rouge back pain.

BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES

Patients with low back pain are more apt to be less active. Pain influences that decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may set off pain, resulting in weakened muscles like the gluteus maximus. Lengthy immobilization or inactivity prevents use of these muscles. In low back pain patients, a weak gluteus maximus is a common finding. Researchers report that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional area is decreased in low back pain sufferers, particularly in women. (3) For Baton Rouge chiropractic back pain patients experiencing constant lumbopelvic pain and test positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, doing gluteus maximus strengthening exercises is advantageous. Patients who did these found a reduction in pain and an improvement in gluteus maximum strength and function. (4) Performing both - exercise to strengthening the gluteus maximus muscles and lumbar segmental stabilization exercise – lessened low back pain disability significantly more and improved lumbar spine muscle strength and balance better than just lumbar segmental stabilization exercise alone. (5) To activate the gluteus maximus muscles, erector spinae and hamstrings more deliverately during exercise, researchers devised a unique laser pointer system that permitted the exercise participants to see their muscle usage. This enhanced their form. (6) Let your Baton Rouge chiropractor be your laser pointer! Consider using the proposed tips for how to exercise properly.
