Exercise is good and beneficial. It
goes hand-in-hand with chiropractic care of spine pain conditions of all sorts.
Exercise also allows the patient to take control of their pain relief. Pflugerville Wellness Center knows our Pflugerville
chiropractic patients just want to get back to doing what they want to do, what
they used to do.
Weak back muscles don’t allow fluid spinal motion in low
back pain patients. Pflugerville Wellness Center
doesn’t consider this helpful at all! Why do back pain patients have
weaker muscles? 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)
One article shares that there is big
payoff for doing a little exercise! Patients
who did just 2 days of muscle strengthening a week reduced their
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’s best not
to smoke.) (2) Pflugerville Wellness Center offers
simple exercises you can do in a short amount of time
from the comfort of your own bedroom if you like! You’ll notice
the difference these make!
Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers gain
from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively affecting
the pain perception by improving your pain threshold and dropping
your pain intensity. (3) Such exercises aren’t tough; they’re just effective!
Pflugerville Wellness Center will who you how to do them so you
can attain the most possible back pain relief.
Pflugerville Wellness Center is with you, our Pflugerville back pain patient, through
your whole course of healing with as much support as you
Back school is another such
support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for managing chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are suggested
over many other approaches. (4) Cox Technic, an evidence based system of spine care, is spinal
manipulation that Pflugerville Wellness Center chooses to use.
The chiropractic treatment plan is enriched when
back school is included in the overall back pain rehabilitation
plan. How? Back school fosters self-management, gives
control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5)
Pflugerville Wellness Center attempts to educate our back pain patients as
to how and why their backs hurt and how to avoid or at
least diminish the chances of future occurrences. One
study of just how well back school is received by back pain patients is a study
of those who went to a back school at a chiropractor’s office.
Back pain patients reported 95% satisfaction with going to the
class, and 100% said it was worth the doctor’s time
to present it. (6) Pflugerville chiropractic
patients at Pflugerville Wellness Center are some of the most spine-smart people around!
