Patient to the chiropractor: “Treat me so I don’t hurt.”
Chiropractor: “Be sure to do your exercises, so you won’t
Chiropractors like your Manahawkin chiropractor at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center
speculate how to get back pain patients to do recommended
exercises. After all, these exercises help back pain sufferers get stronger as
well as decrease and prevent back pain! The back muscles and gluteus muscles and hamstrings get greater. Patients
ponder why the chiropractor suggests
exercises when all they wanted was for the chiropractor
to fix the back pain problem. What a dilemma!
Both the Manahawkin chiropractor and Manahawkin chiropractic patient
have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and
expectations are different. (1) That’s how it is. Research
shows this. Clinical experience shows this. When patients admit this and their chiropractors admit this, everyone then works
together to relieve Manahawkin back pain, prevent future pain, and
strengthen muscle. Let us do that!
EXERCISE GUIDELINES TO REDUCE AND PREVENT BACK
PAIN AND NECK PAIN
Guidelines for how to
handle back pain and neck pain are published. Exercise is
amid the recommendations for the non-invasive
pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies for
treating 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) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center carefully considers
these in caring for Manahawkin back pain.
BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES
Patients with low back pain tend to be less active. Pain shapes that
decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may initiate pain, resulting in weakened muscles like the gluteus maximus. Prolonged
immobilization or sedentariness prevents use of these muscles.
In low back pain patients, a weak gluteus maximus is a common finding.
Researchers document that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional
area is reduced in low back pain sufferers, especially
for women. (3) For Manahawkin chiropractic back pain patients feeling unrelenting lumbopelvic pain and test
positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, doing gluteus
maximus strengthening exercises is beneficial. Patients who
did these found a decrease in pain and an increase
in gluteus maximum strength and function. (4) Doing 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
stimulate the gluteus maximus muscles, erector spinae and hamstrings
more intentionally during exercise, researchers created a unique laser pointer system that permitted
the exercise participants to see their muscle usage. This improved
their form. (6) Let your Manahawkin chiropractor be your laser
pointer! Consider using the suggested
tips for how to exercise properly.
