Exercise and back pain: what a pair!
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center personalizes the suitable back pain exercises for each Manahawkin back pain
sufferer visiting Manahawkin Chiropractic Center to relieve pain
best, bolster the supporting muscles like the erector
spinae and multifidus, and reclaim function. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center
also tries to find exercises that are simple,
effective in multiple ways like the “bird dog” move!
PERSONALIZED EXERCISE BASED ON YOUR
Chronic low back pain patients are not all made in the
same way. There are numerous factors that impact their back pain status. Each chronic low back pain
sufferer must be considered individually as your
Manahawkin chiropractor strives to do. It’s a
known fact that back muscle function differs from a chronic
low back pain sufferer to another. Differences
can be found from a thorough examination which Manahawkin Chiropractic Center does quite well. The exam discoveries help guide
a personalized treatment plan with personalized exercise recommendations. (1) Be confident that you
will be treated like the individual you are at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center!
WHICH EXERCISE FOR WHICH MUSCLE?
Exercise is a frequent prescription
for back pain patients…and with good reason. Muscles support the body
and spine. A review of published research on the effectiveness
of exercise revealed that exercise was likely effective for chronic
low back pain in comparison to no treatment, placebo, advice or
education alone, electrotherapy, or usual care. Its impact was limited
for function, but it improved pain and functional limitations
outcomes. (2) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center believes our Manahawkin
chiropractic patients would agree that benefits of
any sort like this for a condition that is reported to be the foremost cause of disability globally for the past three decades or so, costing much in
direct healthcare expense as well as lost productivity,
are worth seeking with a
little exercise. Start with one exercise (like the following one!) and build up to the basic 10 for back pain.
ONE SIMPLE, EFFECTIVE EXERCISE: BIRD DOG
Erector spinae and multifidi muscles often weaken with back pain, but they are so essential
for stability. Bird-dog (aka quadruped
opposite arm/leg) is a 3-way effective exercise: toning the erector spinae while
strengthening the multifidus and the core as well. Start this by getting on all fours: knees and
hands, stretching the left leg and right arm out level with the floor. Hold this for a couple seconds and repeat
on the other side. Perform this 10 times on each side. (3,4) Talk with Manahawkin Chiropractic Center before beginning any exercise
though to be sure it’s the right one for you!
