Glute Strengthening Plus Chiropractic Eases Back Pain

Patient to the chiropractor: “Treat me so I don’t hurt.”

Chiropractor: “Be sure to do your exercises, so you won’t hurt.”

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. Lengthy 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.
