our Manahawkin back pain patients! What makes these muscles weak? 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)
Researchers find that there is big
payoff for doing a little exercise! Patients
who did just 2 days of muscle strengthening a week reduced the
risk for low back pain. (And this
article, as a side note, suggests that smoking is also a
powerful factor in your risk of getting back pain. It is better not to smoke.) (2) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center presents

control back to the patient to take care of him/herself. (5)
