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. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center incorporates exercise into the chiropractic treatment plan for all our Manahawkin patients to get them back to enjoying the quality of life they want.

Lax muscles reduce motion in low back pain patients. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center knows this isn’t good for 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 simple exercises you can do in just a few minutes from the comfort of your own home if you like! They’ll make a big impact. You’ll see!

Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers gain from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively affecting the pain perception by increasing your pain threshold and dropping your pain intensity. (3) These exercises are not difficult, but they do work. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center will share them with you so you can feel the best possible back pain relief. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is with you, our Manahawkin back pain patient, during your healing process with as much support as you need.

Back school is another such support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for handling 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 Manahawkin Chiropractic Center chooses to use.

Adding back school to the chiropractic treatment plan enhances the good outcomes of back pain rehabilitation. How? Back school nurtures self-management, gives control back to the patient to take care of him/herself. (5) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center tries to educate our back pain patients as to how and why their backs hurt and how to preclude or at least minimize future occurrences. A survey of patients who went to a back school in a chiropractor’s office showed 95% satisfaction with having attended the course and 100% support of the doctor’s presenting it. (6) Manahawkin chiropractic patients at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center are some of the wisest and knowledgeable spine-informed people around!
